I would like to wish all my collector friends from around the world a Happy New Year. I hope I will see some new figures or playsets at the Toy Soldier shows this spring or at least by the end of the year. Barzso Playsets might release some new figure sets or have some old figure sets back in stock in the near future. We shall see in time.
There was a bunch of new products that came out the last few months of the year. Mainly from X-Force and Russian makers. Paul from the Stad’s Stuff page has reported most of these sets already. I will show a few pictures of some of these sets that I found either on the company website or ebay.
Today on ebay I saw a limited edition Publius Viking for $14.99!!
Expeditionary Force keeps producing new figures about every other month it seems. Last year they started releasing Napoleonic Wars figure sets. They also branched out to the War of 1812. Some of the British figures could be used for both Wars. The Highlander figures had different Uniforms at the Battle of New Orleans than they did at the Battle of Waterloo. For me it is not a big deal if everything is not exact. These sets are going for about $32.50. Here are a few pictures.
British Line Infantry
British Royal Marines
Also last year there was a bunch of Vietnam related sets from different companies like Mars and TSSD. But the best so far have be made by the Russian company called Plastic Platoon. So far they have released 3 different American sets. They are going for around $55 to $60 or so on ebay. Hobby Bunker has Plastic Platoon figures also. Here are a few pictures of the American Vietnam forces.
25th Infantry Division
1st Cavalry Division
Another Russian company is Chintoys that start releasing sets of Napoleonic Officer sets and now US Civil War Officer sets. I saw some of the mounted sets on ebay today. They are going for about $50 for each set. Here are some pictures.
Here are a group of Medieval figures that are made by another Russian company called Warhansa. The set of Knights & Sergeants includes 5 different figures for $32. I think these are the best sculpted toy soldiers they have made to date.

Some amazing sculpts in this scale. I really like the Publius Viking, the US Military figures and the Warhansa stuff.
I like the Viking too, but it is expensive. I got a few of the sets when the cost was about $8 a figure. I think that was my price limit.
Wow some great figures there. Love the Publius Viking. May have to do a bit of shopping.
They make some of these same figures in metal too. If I am going to pay that price, I would rather have it in metal.
There are some amazing figures here. A great gift for collectors. The Viking one is great, a perfect add on in a Viking raid diorama. The 1812 (1815) figures are superb. The best British troops I ever see, even better than Barszo. If I could, I would collect them. Using the French cavalry… What a wonderful square attack diorama!
The Vietnam soldiers are beautiful, great poses. Russia has become in a great factory for “rare” toy soldiers. They have great sculptors. The ACW staff cavalry sets are great, even to conversions or changes. All the sets are beautiful. I think they are not “cheap”, but it is not a toy and many people need them to finish or add on their armies or dioramas. New figures, new possibilities, new periods… What more can we ask?
Waiting for your new Playmobil customized figures. Thank you for sharing it. Best regards.
