It has been about a month since my last post. I have been real busy with work and getting ready for the Midwest Toy Soldier Show. I wanted to make a quick post about some new figures and also an update on my figures.

The Boys

Alexey has been busy revamping his company. I received a bunch of figures from him this week. He started working with some new sculptors and here is some of the results.

Here is a Mercenary figure that can be purchased by itself. He reminds me of an IRA Freedom Fighter. The figure does fit really very with the Indo-China set. You can see more of Prikaz over here Prikaz Toy Soldiers.

Publius is working on a Iroquois Indian set. The prototypes look great. I just got a bunch of Publius figures that I will review in a couple of weeks.

In my last post we talked about the limited set of Anglo Saxons miniatures that I am having produced. I received some of the sets this week. Here are some pictures of the final figure cast. Hopefully I will be able to put some sets together for the show. I need more of the 8th figure to complete more sets. Some of these figures are cast without a shield or hand with a spear. This was done for two reasons. The first was to get a nicer cast figure. The second reason was to avoid a spaghetti type spear being cast. After some tests the spearmen will be cast in two different resins. The figure will be cast in a rubbery type resin and the hand with the spear will be cast in a harder resin to avoid the bending of the spear. My vision of this set was to have a Saxon Spear Wall. To avoid any of the spears getting broken during shipping, I am thinking of leaving them unattached from the figure. The collector can use crazy glue to attach the shield and hand with the spear.

Today I was going through the figures and trimming any flash that I found. I set some of them up to fight a small battle with some Prikaz Danes. I mixed in a few Publius Saxons (blue guys) too.

 

Playmobil Gauls

The other day I stumbled across these vintage Playmobil Gauls. They are sets 7923 & 7924. They are hard to find and usually are expensive if you do find them. I got lucky to get both of these sets for $20.00.

I wish Playmobil had expanded on this theme. Most Playmobil collectors had to make their own Gauls to fight against the Romans. These figures will be joining Hannibal’s Army…

Don’t forget about the Midwest Toy Soldier Show. It will start in about 25 days. It is one of the best shows around. Plenty of plastic and metal figures. I will be there selling my new miniatures, toys from my own collection, and LOD & Barzso products.

That is it for now. Thank you for reading.

 

Moe & Bill Customized Playmobil Vikings

The other day while I was searching on eBay I came across these custom Playmobil Vikings by Moe & Bill. I don’t usually buy custom figures because I make them myself but was interested in the shields that they had. I contacted them and Julian got back to me about the shields. I purchased one of their figures to do a review. They are looking into selling just their custom shields. I will do a future review on those in the near future.

I ordered this figure above. I liked the color scheme. Plus the red beard & hair pieces. The figure was professionally packaged which was a nice touch. The cost of the figure was under $10.00 which is good for a custom figure. I will put him in the front ranks of my Shieldwall….

Sorry the figures above are from my collection and are not for sale.

Neulich während ich auf eBay suchte, stieß ich auf diese kundenspezifischen Playmobil Wikinger von Moe & Bill. Normalerweise kaufe ich keine benutzerdefinierten Figuren, weil ich sie selbst mache, aber an den Schilden interessiert war, die sie hatten. Ich setzte mich mit ihnen in Verbindung und Julian erzählte mir von den Schilden. Ich kaufte eine ihrer Figuren, um eine Rezension zu machen. Sie versuchen, nur ihre eigenen Schilde zu verkaufen. Ich werde in naher Zukunft eine zukünftige Überprüfung vornehmen.

Ich habe diese Figur oben bestellt. Ich mochte das Farbschema. Plus der rote Bart & Haarteile. Die Figur war professionell verpackt, was eine nette Geste war. Die Kosten für die Figur lagen unter 10,00 $, was für eine benutzerdefinierte Figur gut ist. Ich werde ihn in die vorderen Reihen meines Schildwalls stellen.

L’autre jour, alors que je cherchais sur eBay, je suis tombé sur ces Vikings Playmobil personnalisés par Moe & Bill. Je n’achète généralement pas de figurines personnalisées parce que je les fabrique moi-même, mais je m’intéresse aux boucliers qu’elles ont. Je les ai contactés et Julian m’a parlé des boucliers. J’ai acheté un de leurs chiffres pour faire une critique. Ils cherchent à vendre seulement leurs boucliers personnalisés. Je ferai un prochain examen sur ceux dans un proche avenir.

J’ai commandé cette figure ci-dessus. J’ai aimé le schéma de couleurs. Plus la barbe rouge et les cheveux. Le chiffre était professionnel emballé qui était une bonne idée. Le coût de la figure était inférieur à 10,00 $, ce qui est bon pour un chiffre personnalisé. Je vais le mettre dans les premiers rangs de mon Shieldwall ….

El otro día, mientras buscaba en eBay, encontré estos Playmobil Vikings personalizados de Moe & Bill. Normalmente no compro figuras personalizadas porque las hago yo mismo, pero estaba interesado en los escudos que tenían. Los contacté y Julian volvió a hablarme sobre los escudos. Compré una de sus figuras para hacer una revisión. Están buscando vender solo sus escudos personalizados. Haré una revisión futura de esos en el futuro cercano.

Pedí esta figura de arriba. Me gustó el esquema de colores. Además de las barbas rojas y las piezas de cabello. La figura fue empaquetada profesionalmente, lo cual fue un buen toque. El costo de la figura era menos de $ 10.00, lo que es bueno para una figura personalizada. Lo pondré en las primeras filas de mi Shieldwall …

Την άλλη μέρα, ενώ έψαχνα στο eBay, συναντήθηκα σε αυτά τα έθιμα Playmobil Vikings από τη Moe & Bill. Συνήθως δεν αγοράζω προσαρμοσμένες φιγούρες, επειδή τους έκανα μόνοι τους, αλλά ενδιαφέρομαι για τις ασπίδες που είχαν. Τους επικοινώνησα και ο Τζούλιαν επέστρεψε σε μένα για τις ασπίδες. Αγόρασα ένα από τα αριθμητικά στοιχεία τους για να κάνω μια κριτική. Ψάχνουν να πουλούν μόνο τις προσαρμοσμένες ασπίδες τους. Θα προβώ σε μια μελλοντική επανεξέταση σχετικά με αυτούς στο εγγύς μέλλον.

Το διέταξα παραπάνω. Μου άρεσε το σχέδιο χρώματος. Επιπλέον τα κόκκινα κομμάτια γενειάδας και μαλλιών. Το σχήμα ήταν επαγγελματικό πακέτο που ήταν μια ωραία πινελιά. Το κόστος του αριθμού ήταν κάτω από 10,00 δολάρια που είναι καλό για ένα έθιμο σχήμα. Θα τον βάλω στις πρώτες θέσεις του Shieldwall μου …
