Forces of Valor was founded a Los Angeles in 2002 by Unimax, a well-known toy company based a Hong Kong. The intent of the founder, Arthur Chan, was to develop a series of collectibles in the field of military modeling.
With Forces of Valor, Arthur's goal was to offer the public fully constructed and professionally painted models, thus skipping the assembly process, which requires time and manual skills.

He decided that instead of offering models "just out of the factory", he would give his models a more "fierce" look, similar to the images that regularly adorned history books and military documentaries.
In the following years, Forces of Valor became one of the most successful military collectible brands in the world. From its early days of producing military models in 1/32 scale, the line continued a flourish, now including warships, aircraft, figurines and other historical products, in a wide variety of scales, settings and eras.
