BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — Remember those plastic, green soldiers you might have played with as a child?

They were probably all male, but BMC Toys plans to change that this holiday season.

It plans to also feature women in a number of different poses, like bazooka operator and captain.

BMC is taking orders for them now, and plans to ship the first sets in October.

The figures are the result of the Plastic Army Women Project.

BMC owner Jeff Imel says a 6-year-old girl named Vivian asked him to make army girls that look like women.

Now it looks like they will be ready in time for the holidays.
