Herald toy Greeks and Trojan play figures are most certainly well
worth collecting. Britains, Also produced the self same figures too
under Licence but added an oval plastic base platform to the foot
of their figures. One can be identified as such in the second from
last picture above.
So for the collector that is how both sets are recognised.

I,ll shuffle and deal them!

Never play cards with this guy.

i sure could use an extra strong arm and hand
like these guys,*F...... A* my friends would
often say back in the world in agreement!


in answer,
Bluefalchion 28mm ? No slightly larger than that,the BBC chose an out of scale, scale to really mess things up where other size toy figures were and are concerned.
i on the other hand,that is if i end up OK using one hand that is,i only collect now for insulating the walls as each stands upon my toy shelves. BB

He looks a bit angry, otherwise I could ask him to help me paint my figures. With those many hands he could be a great help. Or do you think he'll just mess things up with too many hands? Your threads are always a nice source of information.

Paul
Your museum figures are always interesting. Thanks for exposing them to us.
Now, why do these British guys remind me so much of the little Hat ones?
Wonder, wonder...

Happy collecting (because noone of us will ever succeed splashiing colour on all our figs)

Now known the world over: The Famous Fred & MayBell.

Thank you Michael, :thumbup: Yes this is why there is a place upon this Forum for unpainted figures. With one good eye :stressed: and one trust worthy hand, i place them here by reason of little choice in the matter.
:coffee: Hopefully i make up for this short fall,in other ways ?

Hollow Style Lead Cast Toy Figures.
Just how these devoted toys managed to stay together
over the years must have been a great adventure.
If they could only speak,then what magic they could spin.BB

Always good to get a comment.

:coffee: However Guys i like to identify BOTS,usually on YouTube,or my Blog! They steal personal information and pass it on.
So i believe after finding quite a lot of BOTS ( Machines) This one needs to get Benno's Royal Boot to kick it into Oblivion! BB
