I bought a bag of both Japanese and US Marines by BMC at a Toy Solider show a couple of years ago. I think it was about £8 for the whole back and there was about 40 figures in total plus a model of the flag raising on Iwo Jima. I wanted to see just how cheap you could put a skirmish togther. I painted them in a 'Toy' style and the Japanese are all finished. They are made from a strong plastic that is very easy to paint. Some really good poses in there too.
