The Latest News!!! 07-19-2020 ~ Toy Soldier Review ~ 1/32 Terror Set By Chelovechek. Columbus, Ohio Toy Show Update!!!

Terror2

Yesterday I received the No.4 Terror set by Chelovechek. The set is based on Franklin’s Lost Expedition during 1845 to 1847.

Terror1Terror1aTerror1bTerror1cTerror1dTerror1eTerror2a

There are 6 figures included in this set. They are made out a rubbery type of resin. They are 1/32 in scale. I chose the blue color for this set. They also come in a dark gray and I think a brown color. The paper print of Captain Franklin was a nice touch.

Here is the Captain with his looking glass.

Sailor with pick.

Terror5aTerror5b

Marine with rifle. Looks like he is getting ammo to load the rifle.

Terror6aTerror6b

Sailor with lantern.

Terror7aTerror7b

I think here is another Marine with an ice pick.

Terror8aTerror8bTerror8c

Another Marine or Sailor shooting a carbine.

Terror2e

A Conte & Barzso figure added to the mix.

Terror2dTerror2cTerror2b

I like this set very much. A couple years ago I watch the TV series called the “Terror”. Like the toy soldier set it was based on the story of Franklin’s Lost Expedition. The British Navy ships HMS Erebus and HMS Terror got stuck in the ice while exploring Canadian Artic. You can read more about this over here, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franklin%27s_lost_expedition.

b06c46_c9484520f61d48cb8bed984d821a74a1_mv2

I like the poses in the set. I wish that there were more though. Maybe they will do another set one day. For now I will add some Conte Alamo figures and some others that I think I can convert to fit the era. They are nicely sculpted and are a unique subject. I would like to make a small display one day. If you are interest in this set you can contact Ivan at evanspud@mail.ru

For the last few years I have heard rumors and talk on a couple forums that someone should write a book on Barzso Playsets. It was even said that I was working on a book at one point, lol. Finally there is an Official Guide about Barzso Playsets. The book is written and photographed by Len Hardt. The forward by Ron Barzso. Edited Kathy J. Kern. Plus designed & additional material & photos by Rusty Kern. You can purchase the book through Playset Magazine. For more information about the book go to their website.

Here is a preview picture of a new set from Mars WWII Russian Assault Troops. The scale is 1/32. Not bad. The machine guns are a nice touch. They should be released sometime in the near future.

# 12 Custom Playmobil Viking Shield Maiden.

Playmobil Shield Maiden1Playmobil Shield Maiden1aPlaymobil Shield Maiden1bPlaymobil Shield Maiden1cPlaymobil Shield Maiden1d

It has been a long time since I posted a custom Playmobil figure. This is  an update for an old figure that I had started years ago. I changed the hair piece to give it some new life. The bear cloak and scale armor is made out of epoxy. 

“A shieldmaiden (Old Norse: skjaldmær) was a female warrior from Scandinavian folklore and mythology. Historians disagree about whether they existed or not. Shieldmaidens are often mentioned in sagas such as Hervarar saga ok Heiðreks and in Gesta Danorum.” ~ Shield-maiden From Wikipedia ~

The Finds

I had hoped to be at the Midwest Toy Soldier Show but due to all the madness I was unable to attend. Last week I was able to get out and found a few vintage toy soldiers and other toys.

Here is a simple plastic ranch fence that I found for a dollar. The scale is really nice. It is made out of hard plastic. Magua approves….

I found these two Tim Mee Army trucks at different places. The “Battle” damaged truck was $5.00 and the other one in better condition was $7.00. I remember having some of these as a kid.

I also found a few bags of mixed figures and vehicles. This Tim Mee Howitzer was in one bag. I like the fact that it can be hitched to the truck and other vehicles too.

Here is another figure that my girlfriend Carolyn found. This Marx British Red Coat cost me $1.00. I never had any. It is really well detailed and fits well with the Barzso figures. I am not a big Marx collector. I only have a few of the World War II figure sets. Plus some western figures that I have picked up here and there. The Marx Toy company was almost gone when I was was growing up. I was lucky enough to have the Navarone Playset as a kid. I will try to get a few more of these British if I come across them at the shows.

During the time that I have been stuck in my house I have been productive. I have been going through my collection. I have been storing things in my basement the past 10 years. They have been stored in different boxes. I have been adding shelves and storage containers the past few years. Here are a two Sherman Tanks that I found while I was sorting through things. The tank that is all green was made by New Ray. I paid around $10 for it. The other tank is by Forces of Valor. I think I paid around $40 for that one. I don’t really like spending too much for the die cast vehicles. I am not a WW II historical collector. More of an Army Man toy soldier collector. So the detail with the uniforms or tanks is not a big deal to me. Both tanks are nice. The FOV tank is highly detailed.

Interesting pose. Pirate with lead line checking the Fathom.

Depth was measured using a tool called a lead line.
This was simply a hemp rope with a heavy piece of lead tied
to one end. A mark was made on the rope every six feet,
which is equal to one fathom. A crew member would throw
the lead line overboard, counting the marks on the line as it
sank to the bottom. By multiplying the number of marks by
six, the sailor could figure out how deep the water was at
that spot. If a sailor counted eleven marks, for example, that
meant that the depth of the water equaled sixty six feet (11 x
6 = 66 feet). ~ Navigation: Depth and Speed ~

Pirates1

When Barzso first made these figures I was amazed. Not only because of the sculpting but because of the resin used. The resin was real smooth. Almost like plastic. It had a nice feel and look. Ron based the Pirates on Stevenson’s Treasure Island. The poses are an instant classic.

Pirates

The new color is perfect for these Pirates. Plus the resin is better. It is still smooth and not brittle. You would still have to be careful and not drop these though. They still can break. But I think these are stronger.

The second set is of the 1st Infantry Wehrmacht. This set also includes six figures in 1/32 scale. If you never had any of these figures they are about the same size as the 1/32 Conte Germans. The Machine Gun team is really nice. I am going to try to get a set of these when they are available. You can get Plastic Platoon figures soon from, https://micshaunscloset.com/.

Ivan Kostenko from ЧЕЛОВЕЧЕК or “Little Men” has been working on a new set. The set is called “Victorian London Rag-Tag”. Ivan told me that he got the ideas for this set from Gangs of New York, Sherlock Holmes and Jack The Ripper.

Ivan is working on a second set. I think we shall see maybe Sherlock Holmes type figures next. Maybe some more gang members like the Dead Rabbits in the future too???
