The Latest News!!! 10-04-2020 ~ Toy Soldier Preview ~ Prikaz Toy Soldiers “The Clash”.

I hope every one is doing well. I have been working a lot again. Today I am posting a preview of Prikaz’s newest set. It is called “The Clash”.

“There are six figures in a set: a Russian warrior with an ax, a Russian warrior with a two-handed ax, a fallen Saxon, a seriously wounded warrior, a Slav and a Dane (or a Saxon, whichever is more interesting).
Shapes are combined into vignettes and can also be used individually.” ~ Alexey Pisarev

This will be an excellent addition to any dark age setting. You can make a scene of a Danish or Saxon raid of a Rus Slavic village. These figures are made out of the rubbery type of resin and are 1/32 in scale or a little bigger. They are about 57mm. I will do a review of this set in a few months. You can visit the online catalog page I have set up for Prikaz Toy Sodiers over here, https://warhorseminiatures.com/prikaz-toy-soldiers/. The set is now available to order. Contact information can be found through the link above.

Well that is it for now. Thank you for reading.

LOD Enterprizes Barzso Vault Figures & The Columbus Ohio Toy Soldier Show.

This will be the first time I attend the Columbus Ohio Toy Soldier Show. I will be selling LOD Barzso products again. I understand a lot of the same dealers from the Indiana Toy Soldier shows will be present and some different ones too. This should be a nice show. There was some nice deals and rare items last time. This show should not be different. The dealers will be here, so get your Arse there too!!!!.

This year the show will be in a new location. About 20 minutes north of Columbus it will be held at Otterbein University.

Presented by the Midwest Toy Soldier Group. If you have any questions head over to their website over here, http://www.mwtoysoldier.com/.

Two new resin vignettes are on the LOD website. Both sets are $15.00 plus shipping. Both are packaged with our Barzso Figure Set header bag notated with a nod to the Barzso Vault. I will be selling these new sets at the Columbus Toy Soldier Show.

One set includes three new poses never before released. A Huron warrior has captured two women. He is leading them back to camp.

The other set includes a new Native American pose. This pose is paired with injured General Braddock and his trusted steed. This set also includes three pieces.

That is it for now. Thank you for reading.

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.

I found a few things this week at an antique mall. I have been a fan of Auburn rubber toys for a while. The past year I found a few different trucks and jeeps. This week I added a medical truck. The guy on the Motorcycle was made by Tim Mee.

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.

I still have Toy Soldiers and Star Wars toys for sale. If you are interested you can check out what I have over here, Toys for Sale.

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.

Here is the 7th division of the Luftwaffe. The set includes six figures. They should be like the other Plastic Platoon figures in 1/32 scale.

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 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.

Star Wars4 

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!
