Happy New Year 2020!!!
I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy & Healthy New Year. I have a few new previews and some other hobby related things to share.
Here are some pictures of the Urfin Jus Modern Russian Infantry set. It should be released this month. 1st Chechen War of 1994-1995. There are 6 different poses and is 1/32 in scale.
Here is a prototype of a future Publius figure. Maybe Misses Claus??
The Viking Shield Breaker Berserker figure by Prikaz is ready now too. I will have some new pictures up in the coming months.
The first season of the Disney Star Wars TV show The Mandalorian is over now. The last episode was great. The one thing missing are the toys!! Don’t fear. The toys will be all over the place beginning some time this spring. Here are 4 new figures from the next wave of The Vintage Collection. These 3 & 3/4 inch scale Star Wars action figures feature classic characters and retro packaging! Longtime fans of Star Wars will love this Kenner-style packaging, right down to the old fashioned Kenner logo. ROS Action Figures Wave 3 Set is made up of a Remnant Stormtrooper, Cara Dune, The Mandalorian and a Clone Trooper.
I started collecting Star Wars figures again. The new figures look really great. Right now I will just focus on the Mandalorian TV series. I think by the end of 2020 we will see a bunch of Star Wars toys to make some great mini displays.
That is it for now. Thank you for reading.
I hope everyone is enjoying the Memorial Day weekend. “Let Every American Remember”.
We will start off this post with some news about Prikaz. They just released a new set of Strelet’s artillery. I will have a preview of this set in about a month from now. But until then here are a few more pictures of the set. For more information about Prikaz Toy Soldiers check out this link, Prikaz Toy Soldiers.
But that is not the only news that I have about Prikaz. Next month they will be releasing two more sets. The first is called “Princely Court 4: Hunters”. It includes 6 figures. Elder, Slav with a child, a worker with a bag, a hunter-archer, a hunter with a knife, a bear.
The second set is called “Konung 2: Wall of Shields”. This is a set of Vikings. Alexey says. “Three vikings in a fighting stance and three vikings in a squat. Shields are removable. I emphasize that we tried to make just the Vikings – for the whole team only one helmet and only two swords, the most respected and successful. The rest have shields and axes. No armor. Only leather and cloth jackets, only hardcore)))”
Next we have some more pictures of the LOD Amazons with some Conte Spartans. The Amazons should be available for sale at the Chicago Toy Soldier Show in September. Here is the link for LOD, https://lodtoysoldiers.com/.
Talking about Conte, we have some more updates on the plastic Romans. They have a poll set up to decide which colors to use. It looks like we will see Red, Bronze and Light Tan. It might change. Hopefully we will some of these sets by September. Here is Conte’s new website https://contecostore.myshopify.com/.
MicShaun’s keeps restocking it’s inventory. Ever since they took over Toy Soldiers of San Diego they are bringing back some of the older products. They are expecting a big shipment in July if everything goes according to plan. Here is their website, https://micshaunscloset.com/.
Here is a new Austin Miniatures Native American Cavalry Scout prototype for a future set.
Here is a picture of me cleaning up this week. In about a weeks time I picked up 4 different playsets for under S250. I wasn’t even looking for them, they found me. Well sort of, lol.
At a local flea market I picked up this Auburn playset for S50. I never saw a boxed set from Auburn before. I think this set is from the 1950’s. The box is a good condition with some damage. Most of the figures are in really good condition. Some of the pioneer’s rifles are cut. The stage coach driver is a Rel figure. I added a horse that I got last month from Gettysburg to the set. That horse needs a bath, lol.
Here is a Barzso Playsets “Ranger Camp” playset. I picked this set up for $95. I didn’t have too much interest in this set years ago. I thought it was another Ranger figure add-on set. But I was wrong. It has a lot of things inside the small box. There are three different displays that you can set up with this set.
The first is using the burnt out cabin. It is the center piece of the set. You can set up the Rangers fighting off the French & Indians.
The second scene is the Ranger Camp. Some really nice poses in camp setting. There are a few tents and a half faced camp.
The last scene is the Rangers rescuing a captive from the Indians.
Here are some pictures of the Rogers’ Rangers. They are cast in a nice shade of green.
Here are some of the French Infantry figures cast in a Cream color. They were cast in this color when they first came out. Most of the French figures that I have are cast in gray.
There were a few Indians in this set. The Huron Indians were cast in a chocolate brown.
The Rangers had an Iroquois Indian Scout with them. He is cast in a tan color.
The burnt out cabin.
The half faced camp.
The split railed fence.
The set has a bunch of little accessories too.
The Captive was one of the Character figures. She was cast in gray.
Robert Rogers was another character figure. He was cast in a squash looking color.
The Information sheet about the Rangers.
Everything back in the box.
Lastly here are some more pictures of the box.
Head over to the Prikaz catalog page I set up for Alexey. There are some pictures of his sets and the contact information to order directly from him. Here is the link Prikaz Toy Soldiers.
Next time I will have some pictures of the Conte set and the other Barzso set I picked up. Well that is it for now. Thank you for reading.
