Standard Toy Soldier Poses: The Binoculars Guy
Binoculars are associated with officers and forward observers. Indeed, the Ideal and Tim Mee sets’ officers have a pistol in one hand and binoculars in the other. Other brands had their officers looking directly through binoculars. For boys back in the days of dimestore soldiers and bags of plastic army men, that kind of binoculars guy was pretty much useless. He was just standing there staring at something. Neither fighting nor leading, the binoculars guy was never a favorite.
