Merry Christmas 2017 and Happy New Year 2018

I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I have been busy with work related things and the holidays and have not had much time. Here are a few things that I have found recently or gathered this year.

Earlier this month I found this Marx Boot Camp Playset box. It is metal and unfolds to become a boot camp base. I got this for $20, it has some wear. I also found a few figures from the same guy. I will add some more figures and accessories to this set when I find them here and there for a good price.

I found these Marx Toy Soldiers on Saturday for $5 and these will look good with the boot camp above.

Earlier this year, I found these toy soldiers on ebay. I think the are by Cane. They are Marx clones of the 6 inch figures of WWII Japanese Soldiers. They look like they are 65mm or 70mm in size. I found these for about $6. I wish they were a little smaller is size but they are still nice.

Here are some pictures that I took of my Marx, Airfix, MPC and some Chinese made Japanese World War II Soldiers that I gathered this year. I will do a post about these Japanese Soldiers and others not pictured in the future.

I finally found the 21st Japanese Zero Airplane at a decent price of $35. I wanted this for a while but did not want to pay the high prices that I usually see them at.

That is it for now. I just wanted to do one more post before the year ended. This coming year I want to focus on crafting things and less on collecting. The next show I go to will most likely be in late Spring at Gettysburg. Some of the items that I will be looking forward to seeing next year will be the new Vikings and Saxons from William Britain, any new or old Barzso figures and any new plastic figures sets.
