Vintage Castings was founded by Bill Lango around 1980 in North Bergen, New Jersey. Bill casts from original Barclay, Manoil and Metal Cast moulds and even produced some unissued figures from original plaster models. Bill produces figures and cars in solid cast and hollowcast lead and even produces Dimestore figures in an aluminum alloy. Vintage Castings Co. has produced over 50 different Barclay, Manoil Metal Cast and American Metal figures.
In the mid 1980's Bill began publishing a magazine called Toy Soldier Review. The magazine had a nearly 20 year run before the final issue came out. Even today, the old magazines are still highly prized by collectors.
Also in the 1980's Bill started the East Coast Toy Soldier Show and Sale. Now in it's 28th year, it is the largest toy soldier show on the East Coast.
