I hope every one is doing well. I have been working off and on. I was able to get out this week to visit some antique stores and a couple of comic shops. I found a few things while I was out searching. We will get to that later. I thought this post was going to be quick post about some vintage toys that I found. But in the last couple of days I became aware of a few things. So let us begin…..

Terror

In 2018 AMC had a new TV show called the “Terror”. The first season was about a British Naval polar explorers. The ships get stuck in the ice. They try to survive the harsh weather conditions and each other, while being stalked by some thing… It is a good show. You can read more about it at, https://www.amc.com/shows/the-terror/season-1.

When I first watched the show I thought that it would be a cool playset. Well Ivan at “Little Men” must have been reading my mind. Here is a new set that they are working on. It looks great. I can’t wait to get a set of these. They will be plastic and 1/32 in scale.

A few weeks ago I purchased a vintage comic book. It was Moon Knight #8. On the back cover was an ad for Lucky Products Toy Soldiers. I found a bag of these this week for $5.00!!

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.

Another week of working through the Pandemic is over. I hope every one is doing well. Easter is here but it does not feel like it this year.

In this post we will have more previews coming from Russia again. Plastic Platoon has been very busy. Little Men has a new set too.

Plastic Platoon has two new World War II German sets. These sets are part of the Battle of Leningrad series. These go with the two Russia Battle of Leningrad sets.

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/.

The Latest News!! 04-05-2020 ~ Toy Solder Review ~ Italeri Gladiators ~ Previews from Mars! Plus some Hobby News!!

xoq6X81

 

I hope everyone is doing well. I bet a lot of you are getting stir crazy in your home or stressed out if you are working. Today I have another short post. The first part is a review of a old plastic set from Italeri.

Italeri 6869 AItaleri 6869 BItaleri 6869 C

I picked this set up a few months ago. I am planning on using these figures with my Playmobil Coliseum set in a display one day. The scale says 1/32 but they are more like 1/35 in scale. There are sixteen figures in this set. Eight different poses of two each. There are six Gladiators and two animals. Made out of tan plastic. Like a model they had to be broken off the spruce.

Gladiators A

The first group of Gladiators appear to be posing ready to set some type of contest.

Gladiators B

Here we have a Lion & a Bear.

Gladiators C

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The next group of Gladiators are of action poses.

Gladiators DGladiators E

The set is sculpted well. Nicely detailed. The poses are good too. I do have a few complaints. It feels like the set is incomplete. Even the box art is different from the figures included. Most of the poses don’t connect with each other. They should have made the poses interact with each other better. There should be two standing poses instead of three. If there was another action pose it would have felt more complete.

Clipper

Here is the hobby clipper that I used to remove the figures from the spruce. It makes so much easier to remove the plastic parts.

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.

SC EB 1

I have seen on a few different places Engineer Basevich is releasing two more sets to go along with the Revolution series. They will be in different colors again. So far I have seen blue and brown. They are cast in plastic in 1/32 scale. I found some of these pictures and information on the Engineer Basevich website.

SC EB 2

EB30 A

“So, “Engineer Basevich” with special pride presents a set # 30 “Commanders of the White Guard”. The set includes Kappel, Skuro, Drozdovsky and Ataman Semenov. Why are they, you ask, and begin to shower with no less worthy names? I agree! But such is the author’s decision, and although Kappel and Drozdovsky were already represented in my earlier sets on foot, I felt that they were no less worthy to lead your armies and on horses.”

EB31 AEB31 G

 

There is a timeline for a new one for the 31st set of soldiers of the ENGINEER BASEVICH – “Leaders of the Ukrainian Revolution of 1917-1921 R.” , and on behalf of the Director, Simon Petliuri, the hetman of the Ukrainian State in 1918, Rotsі Pavel Skoropadsky and Old Man -otaman Nestor Makhn. The fourth iguroyu set є petlyurіvsky colonel Petro Bolbochan. Hai live in Ukraine!

I found these Atlantic Roman figures for $60.00. Most are Roman Legionaries. Some were Gladiators or Citizens.

Toy Soldier Review ~ Mars German Don Cossack (WWII)

During World War II, the Don Cossacks mustered the largest single concentration of Cossacks within the German Army, the XVth SS Cossack Cavalry Corps. A great part of the Cossacks were former Russian citizens who elected to fight not so much for Germany as against the Soviet Union. The XVth SS Cossack Cavalry Corps included the 1st Cossack Division and the 2nd Cossack Division.

Mars just released a set of Don Cossack soldiers that served in the German Army during World War II. I recently picked up a set from Kent Sprecher. Here is the link for Kent on eBay, 32023 Mars 1/32 WWII Don Cossacks (German Allies) toy soldiers 15 in 8 poses. You get 15 figures in 8 different poses in 1/32 scale.

Mars4Mars3

Mars5Mars6Mars7Mars8Mars9Mars10Mars11Mars12Mars13Mars14Mars15Mars16Mars17Mars18Mars19Mars20Mars21Mars22

Let’s start the review. I was very happy to get this set. Mars hit a home run in my opinion. I was surprised to find out that the scale of this set about the same scale as the Conte Germans. Now my German forces finally have some Axis Allies in the same scale. They also look nice when compared to Marx Germans too. Even the Plastic Platoon figures are about the same scale. The only flaw that stands out to me is the flash that cuts down most of the figures faces. 

Mars1Mars2Mars23Mars24Mars24aMars25Mars26Mars27Mars28Mars29

The scale is one of the major drawbacks to most of the other Mars sets. Previous Mars World War II sets really didn’t compare that well with most sets. Unless you were a big collector of MPC figures then you were out of luck. Most collectors will pick a scale that they like to collect. You have 1/35 scale which is what most “Models” are. Then the classic scale of 54mm or the original 1/32 scale which most Marx figures are. Then the “Big” 1/32 scale which came along with Conte & TSSD figures. My favorite is the Conte Scale. 

German Elite Infantry

As I was writing my review a few days ago I was sent some pictures of the new Mars WW II German Elite Infantry in Winter Dress. These figures look really nice. I hope that these new figures are also a little bigger than the previous sets. Kent should have them in stock in a few weeks.

At the show, we will have two (2) new prototype Alamo buildings – the Kitchen and the Lunette! We will have the painted/finished buildings available for purchase. Below are the photos of the prototypes:

The Kitchen. The right side of the kitchen designed to be placed next to the Main Entry Gate Building #TS222. The kitchen will be painted to match the current Alamo buildings.

Lunette1Lunette2Lunette3Lunette4

The Lunette. The Lunette goes in front of the Main Entry Gate Building #TS222. It will be painted in earth tones similar to what you find in Mark’s Lemon’s Book – The Illustrated Alamo 1836.

We will also be carrying many more Expeditionary Force figure sets, Chin Toys/Engineer Basevich. We will definitely have the Ex Force sets in Chicago and hope to have the Chin Toys/Engineer Basevich as well.

We have received a large restock of the Atherton Scenics diorama pieces.

New stock of our TSSD Foam pieces and have arrived and we expect more over the next week.

We will be bringing many of these pieces with us to Chicago.

Christmas Workshop1Christmas Workshop2Christmas Workshop3

Santa’s Workshop can be the centerpiece of your Christmas display. This finely crafted foam piece is the hub where the elves are hard at work building the toys that Santa delivers every year to good boys and girls.

The Workshop will be available on its own ($125 plus shipping) or as part of an LOD display set ($160 plus shipping).

The display set includes the following – Santa’s Workshop, Santa’s Christmas Delivery figure set, a bag of decorative snow, five assorted sisal trees, and eight LOD gifts in four colors (blue and pink shown).

This set will be on the website this weekend and available for pre-order. I will also have them at the Chicago Toy Soldier Show.

Merry (early) Christmas from LOD 😊

Ron Barzso will be at the show too. He will be in Room # 5104 this year. Even though he is retired he still has some products to sell. He even has a couple things to surprise us sometimes too!!

 

That concludes any information that I have about the show from the vendors. I should have another post up next weekend about the show itself. I will update this article if I have anything new to add. I hope to attend next year.

Man-made monument to HUMANITY

Workshop on the creation of plastic men.

Project goals: through contemplation of the “little men” through the game, to convey as much as possible the originality and colorfulness of historical cultures and ethnic groups born in the process of forming a single human race.
