BMC: Dragon & Knights

BMC produced playsets and bags of figures starting in the mid 2000s.  Their 65mm fantasy knights have very funky weapons and ride Pegasus.

  1. some of those weapons, those flags and I think that dragon is ripped off of Mega bloks' old toy line dragons; Metal ages.

  2. Interesting thought. I'll bet a lot of "borrowed" items made it into this line.

    1. I bet so to. And also, this can help you pinpoint the date. Metal ages was 2005-2006 (7?) So this set was either during or after those years.

  3. Hi FTS,

    BMC Toys did not manufacture or distribute these figures. There's a lot of confusion due to a large Hobby Distributor that lumped a bunch of items into their 'BMC' category for several years. Their inventory system was limited in how many categories it could accommodate, so they stuck anything that was more of a toy than a hobby figure in there. Many online retailers used the distributors' data to create their content and carried over the 'BMC' brand even though it's not correct. The distributor finally updated their systems and corrected the problem about 3 years ago, but a lot of that bad data persists. BMC stands for Bill McMaster Company, and BMC produced a line of historical plastic army men type figures, vehicles, and playsets. Bill passed away very suddenly nearly a year ago, and I just recently purchased the company from his family.

    I saw a post on facebook about your Helm collection and noticed the BMC category. It's a great site, especially the DFC sections.
