The Latest News!! 05/29/2023 ~ Virginia Toy Soldier Show, Vintage Toy Soldiers and some Hobby News.

I hope everyone is having a good Memorial Day weekend. It is a time in America that we show our gratitude to the men & women that sacrificed their lives for their country.

This Saturday June 3rd is the Virginia Toy Soldier show. Eddy Gries has been promoting this show for a while now. This year I will be setting up as a vendor. This is the first time we will attend this show. If it is like the show in New Jersey there will be a little of everything. Painted metal toy soldiers, plastic toy soldiers and military related items, books & toys. I think there are about 75 tables for this show. Hobby Bunker will be present. I will be bringing my resin Warhorse Miniatures, LOD/Barzso plastic & resin toy soldiers, a few Russian resin toy soldiers, some foam products and some vintage plastic toy soldiers. I will have a review about the show in a week or so. If you are not too far from Annandale, VA stop by and say hello.

Carolyn found this Hardy horse drawn fire engine from a friend on FB a few weeks ago for $10. I think it is missing a couple firemen that would be placed on the back. It will go with my Hardy Wagon that she found a few years ago.

I found this Bum Pirate set for $20 on eBay. It was something that I was hoping to find one day. I will paint the black set of figures in the future.

Jeff Imel of BMC has plans to remake some of the Classic Toy Soldiers figures sets. Jeff says, “I’m pleased to announce that Jim & Dave over at ‘Classic Toy Soldiers‘ have agreed to pass along stewardship of their plastic injection molds to VictoryBuy. In the coming year I’ll be introducing the BMC Toys ‘Classic Toy Soldier Collector Series’ that will bring the impressive CTS catalog of Louis Marx & Co. style figures and accessories to the toy market. CTS will continue to offer their amazing playsets to the Hobby market for the foreseeable future. A huge thanks to Jim McGough and Dave Payne for all their help with this massive project.You can read the latest update over here, https://bmc-toys.myshopify.com/blogs/news/bmc-toys-production-roundup-june-2023.

I finally added the Saxon Potter shop to my store page. I changed the shop a little. This set has changed a lot since it was first designed. The Potter and helper have been changed. Also, I added the boy to this set. It is $85. For more information you can head over here, Saxon Potter Shop – 1/32 Resin.

After the show in Virginia, we will be heading back to Gettysburg on August 27th. I am still working on the British sets, hopefully by the end of June. More testing with different resin mixtures and always something is being designed or planned. I hope to have some more updates on my next post. That is it for now, Thank you for reading.

The Latest News!! 01/30/2023 ~ Chicago Toy Soldier Show Cancelled, Chintoys & Marx Recast Review, Plus some news and updates.

Last night I saw a few post on Facebook and then later on at Stads about the Chicago Toy Soldier Show being cancelled. They were having to many problems with the hotel that is takes place. Hopefully another location can be found in the future, or a new show can take its place. You can read more at https://www.stadsstuff.com/?p=23181.

In my last post I mentioned about the new sets from Chintoys. Here is my review below.

The first set is # 31, the Gangsters. There are 8 miniatures in 8 different poses. The color is nice and so is the detail. I like the poses too. Most are based off movie characters from a few different Mafia movies.

This set #32, The Police. At first, I was disappointed that they were not blue. But after a while I started to like the color. And again, these miniatures are based off of Mafia related movies. There are 8 figures in 8 different poses. One day I will paint these.

Both sets are really nice. They have a charm to them. The size of these miniatures is around 60mm. I purchased my sets from https://www.hobbybunker.com/products/plastic-soldiers-4/category?mfg=316&scale=Show+All&term=&order=newold. They are out of stock at the moment but are restocking these again.

The other day I stumbled across these Marx Recast WWII Sailors. I am not a big Marx collector, but I know that some sets are hard to find like these Sailors. The cost was around $30. The set has 7 miniatures in 7 different poses. The size is 54mm. You can get them in white or blue. The material is an ABS type resin. It has plastic type feel to it. It is a little pliable, but not like soft plastic. There are other Marx recast sets available too. Tim Geppert formerly of Classic Toy Soldier is selling these on ebay, https://www.ebay.com/itm/165888587499.

The other day I found these for a couple of dollars. They are made out of hard plastic. They might belong to some model train set. They are about 4 inches tall. I will use them with my Indians.

As some of you know, I have been working on some new French & Indian War sets. These are about the same scale as the Barzso Playset miniatures. I should have a few new sets released by the end of February. I have been testing and making adjustments to the miniatures. There will be a French Canadian & Native War Party set and a couple of Ottawa\Huron Indian sets. The pictured set above will be titled “On the Warpath”. There will also be some new trees and rock terrain pieces soon after. It is going to be Epic!!

I saw this post on FB by Wim Grundy.

Always plastic figures for sale at this show!

Midwest Toy Soldier Show 2022 Review ~ Part one Room Trading

The Midwest Toy Soldier show was on Sunday. The show took place in Lafayette, Indiana. The two days before that there was room trading at the hotel where the show took place. There were plenty of vendors that took part. Room trading was a little slow, but the crowds showed up for the show. In today’s post I will discuss the first two days of the room trading.

Me & Carolyn arrived at hotel on Thursday. We were located on the second floor of the hotel. Once we settled in I then setup my products throughout the room for Friday. The next day we got up early and went to a few antique stores before returning to the hotel around noon. Then I started the event called room trading. Room trading is when you make your hotel room a little shop. Collectors will walk throughout he the hotel and shop at your “store”. I had a nice time talking to other collectors and answering any questions they had about my products. This was the 1st time that I was selling my line of Warhorse Miniatures figures. Most were the early Medieval sets. But I also had the new French Marines from the French & Indian War era. Beside that I had some of the LOD/Barzso figure sets & foam products and some Russian figure sets. Mostly Warhansa and some Publius. I was hoping to have some Prikaz products. But I don’t know when that will happen.

I took a break a few times to check out some of the other rooms. The first room I went to belonged to Todd Nace. He had a lot of vintage Marx figures and playsets.

The next room belonged to Eric Koopmeiner. He had vintage toy soldiers, playsets, action figures and some diecast vehicles.

Next, I visited the room of Rick Eber. Each year Rick brings some rare & new mint playsets. Every time I see him, he has something that I have never seen before. This year was the same.

It was now the evening when I closed up my room for trading. I went downstairs to see what was going on. By the time I got to John Anderson’s room he had almost sold everything he had. He usually brings a bunch of playsets and figure sets with him. Plus, vintage toys. Whatever he gets his hands on.

The last room I checked on Friday belonged to David Cook of MicShaun’s Closet. He had his TSSD bagged toy soldiers, foam products, LOD/Barzso products and some Russian figure sets. We had a lot of fun talking.

Late Friday in the lobby of the hotel there was a small gathering of collectors. There were about 20 collectors looking at some old Marx playsets. I think most were from the 1960’s. They belonged to John Anderson. They were still sealed. The boxes were in bad condition. But when they started to open them up, everything inside was mint. Except for some paper guides. The sets were sold to some of the collectors there. At this point it was almost 11pm. I then retired for the night.

Day Two

I got up early on Saturday and took a stroll around the 1st floor before I opened my room. I went to visit Mike Kitnuck. Ron Barzso gave Mike a horde of original Barzso products that he had found to sell for him. There was over a 100 figure & accessories sets. I don’t know what else he had the day before. I found a few rare things to add to my collection. It was a Barzso collector’s dream. If this was a few years ago, I would have spent over a $1,000. Instead, I spent around $100. I could have horded a bunch of stuff. But I am in the process now of trimming my collections. So, I took only what I needed. I was tempted, but I left everything to some other lucky collectors.

Next up was the room of John Atherton. He was busy preparing his beautiful foam pieces for sale. His products are a must for anyone creating a diorama or even a small display. We had a good time talking about the hobby.

The next room I entered belonged to Scott Canady. He also had a lot of vintage playsets and toy soldiers. After I kept knocking down one of his displays of toy soldiers, I looked through some comics and around his room…

Francis Turners room had a huge amount of vintage Marx figures. Plus, some recast figures that were old too.

Gary Wendeln also had some Barzso figure sets and playsets with him. Plus, some other vintage toy soldiers.

The last room I checked out on Saturday belonged to fellow collector Willy Pickett. He had his custom playmats to enhance your vintage figures. Plus, some custom terrain pieces that he had painted.

Treefrog Treasures was room trading late afternoon on Saturday. They were the only major metal dealer at the show.

That is all on the room trading. I think next year I will only trade on Saturday. On Friday I will stroll around instead. I had a great time trading and talking to collectors. There were plenty of deals at this show. My next post will be on the show itself. Thank you for reading.

The Latest News!!! 02/21/2022 ~ Warhorse Miniatures Compagnies Franches de la Marine set, Vintage Britain Task Force Set, and more updates.

In today’s post we will talk about some new sets that I am releasing soon. One is not a Medieval set, but it is based on the French & Indian War. I have a few more updates and some hobby news. Before that I found a vintage playset yesterday. So, this is where we will begin.

I stumbled across this Britain Task Force Playset yesterday. I don’t have to many Britain Deetail figures in my collection. Just a few WWII figures. But for less than $30 I couldn’t pass on this. I never saw this playset before. The terrain base is awesome. There are 6 figures and some accessories. The spring-loaded mines are a nice touch. The set has a Nato type theme to it. I will add some modern Britain figures over time to my collection now.

Toy Soldier Collector & Historical Figures Magazine #103

There is an article about Warhorse Miniatures in the Toy Soldier Collector & Historical Figures magazine #103. In the article Jim Clouse discusses my 1st set and my company. Steve Pyle & Scott Walter helped with taking some pictures.

Talking about Steve Pyle, he sent me some pictures of my figures that he had painted. The first set of pictures is one of the Armed Saxon Peasants. The second set is a prototype of some Vikings with a deer.

Two of the latest sets I am working on.

In the coming weeks I will have some new set ready for production. The Saxon Hare Hunter set is $25, and the Saxon Wood Cutter set is $17. There are 4 different Wattle Fence sets. A round fence section with the gate open or closed. Then a straight fence section with the gate open or closed. I will have prices for the fence sets once the pre-orders start.

Viking Raiders Prototypes.

Here are some pictures of Prototypes. I hope to have the Viking Raider camp finished sometime next month. It will be sold in a few different sets. There will be a Raider figure set, a tent set, the Deer set with campfire and then the supply tent with some supplies. Some things can change.

Another Viking prototype with some Conte Saxons.

Here are some pictures of LOD/Barzso Merrymen figures in green with my Vikings & Saxons. They look good with the figures and accessories.

Me busy researching my next move.
The Compagnies Franches de la Marine was the main organization for the defense of New France from 1683 to 1755. In 1683, the Naval Department of France began using the Compagnies to defend the fur trade and the local civilians.

The Compagnies Franches de la Marine will start production in March. The scale of the figures with be the same as Barzso figures or 54mm. The color will be in grey. The 1st set will be of 7 figures in 7 different poses. A second set will be released soon after the 1st set. It will be a firing line of 7 figures in 3 different poses.

That is it for now. More updates to come next month. Thank you for reading.

Columbus Ohio Toy Soldier Show 2021 Review Part 1

Sunday was the 2021 Columbus Toy Soldier Show. The vendors at the show were shouting “Covid, Give me back my Collectors….” Besides the low crowd it was actually not a bad show. There were plenty of vintage playsets, Barzso Playsets, painted metal toy soldiers and plastic figures galore. Plus my new resin miniatures.

I found a few vintage Airfix Toy Soldiers, Original Barzso bagged figure sets at original prices!!, W. Britain Saxons, Painted Russian metal Viking figures and an Atherton Medieval Church. The second part of the review will be on what I found over the weekend & some of the places where we went. Plus some updates about Warhorse Miniatures.

Paul Amody had a bunch of his Russian made metal miniatures with him. The painting is outstanding.

John Atherton & Shane Leonard brought plenty of their foam products. They are great to add to playsets or for display pieces.

Some various pictures from an unknown vendor.

Ted Deddens of W. Britain had bunch of painted metal figures. I re-joined the Collectors Club again. It is worth the price. You can take a look over here, https://www.wbritain.com/collectors-club.

Fellow collector Scott Campbell showed me some of his Barzso figures that he had painted. I always like to talk to fellow collectors to see what they are working on. I sometimes learn some tips or am able to share my own.

Rick Eber had about half of Barzso Playsets available at the show yesterday. There were about 15 total playsets spread out with different vendors. Rick also had plenty of vintage Marx plastic toy soldiers.

John Hamilton had some vintage plastic toy soldiers and other vintage toys.

Here are some more pictures of various vendors.

Robert Horning had his hand crafted & hand painted figures with him. He produces a bunch of different themes from Aliens, Ancients, WWII and even Golf. Plus much more.

Rick Keller had plenty of vintage plastic toys soldiers. Mostly Marx. He had loose figures, bagged sets and some playsets.

Larry Lovely had some loose figures to rummage through. He also had a Barzso Treasure Island playset and some foam pieces.

Mike Lonigro had a mixture of Tin Litho buildings, plastic figures and some playsets.

Todd Nace also had some playsets and storage containers full of vintage plastic toy soldiers. He also had a customized Barzso kneelboat. I think it was the Lewis & Clark boat.

Here was the vendor next to Rick Eber. I didn’t catch his name. He had some vintage figures and other toys.

Rod Chapman had a bunch of antique painted metal dimestore toy soldiers & other antique toys. His Grandson was very kind to help us pack up after the show.

Steve Connell & Rick Keller.
S

Steve Connell had a combination of different toys. Some painted metal figures and plastic toy soldiers.

Here are some more various pictures of vintage toy soldiers.

I did enjoy the show. I sold the Duke’s Tower to a lucky collector at a good price. It was a little below retail cost. I was surprised that more collectors didn’t come out. They missed out on a lot of good stuff. Most of the vendors will now get ready for next year. Most of us keep our products off the internet. We save them for the shows. I will be at more shows next year.

I would like to thank all the collectors that have shown interest in my work in creating a 11th Century early Medieval world. Thank you for the feedback also. It helps me with the further development of things to come.

In the next part of the review I will have some updates about Warhorse Miniatures. That is it for now. Thank you for reading.

The Latest News!! Gulliver Wild West Toy Solder Review, Gettysburg Toy Soldier Show, New LOD Medieval figure colors and Hobby News!! 04/10/2021

Sunday April 18th is almost here. The Gettysburg Toy Soldier Show is about a week away. This will be the 1st major toy soldier show in over a year on the East coast. Gettysburg is a perfect place for a show. It has history and charm. There are plenty of same shops in the town also. A great place to get away for a weekend or a week. For more information about the show look at these two links. The first is from my page, The Gettysburg Toy Soldier Show 2021. The second link is from the promoters, http://www.mwtoysoldier.com/.

In my last post I wrote about the Gulliver Toy Soldiers. The figures are copies of Atlantic Toy Soldiers. I ordered the Cowboy Camp Playset because it had a mixture of Cowboys & Indians. Here is the link from the eBay seller called Andre, https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fort-Apache-Vintage-Old-West-Cowboys-Indians-Action-Figure-Cowboy-Camp-Playset/184705885173.

I was surprised on the size of the box and playset. The set includes 24 figures, 3 horses, 3 teepees, 2 trees, 1 wagon, and some camp accessories. Here are some pictures of the accessories for the set. Most of the accessories are original products that were made by Gulliver.

There are 12 Cowboys & Miner figures and 2 horses.

You can switch the mounted figures from the horses to the wagon.

One the bottom of the figures they are labeled Gulliver. This is good. Collectors will know the difference in the future if they find these figures loose in the wild.

There are 12 Native American Indian figures and 1 horse. Most of these figures depict life at the in a camp setting.

The last figure below was a lot smaller than most of the other figures. I don’t know if these was an original Atlantic figure.

Most of the figures are about 56mm or so. They are smaller than the original Atlantic figures. Most of the Atlantic figures were 60mm. I have a few pictures below for comparison to see how the match up with either Atlantic or some other brands.

Here are 5 figures below show the scale comparison. In order starting from the left is a Conte Alamo figure, Gulliver Cowboy, Barzso Merryman, Gulliver Native Indian and 54mm Marx Viking. You can see the different sizes with the Gulliver figures. I will try to find some Atlantic Indians in the future for comparison.

Some original Atlantic Outlaws in brown compared to the Gulliver figures below.

Here is 1/32 Barzso Merry Man figure below with the Gulliver tree. They look really nice together.

All in all I am very happy to add these figures to my collection. The details of the figures are nice. The plastic feels like the Atlantic plastic. The green color was the only color that I didn’t like. Some are 54mm in size like Airfix or Marx. Then some are like the new big 1/32 scale figures that are about 55mm or 56mm size. The TSSD and Paragon figures are about that size too.

I have a collection of Western toy soldiers in different scales. I have a bunch of foreign made Cowboys and Indians. They are mostly around 60mm in size. You can mix some of these figures with other brands with no problems. Andre is a good seller from Brazil. It took about a week for the figures to arrive. The set was surrounded by packing peanuts so nothing would get damaged. Take a look at the other Gulliver sets that he has over here, https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_sac=1&_ssn=andre17&_osacat=220&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313&_nkw=Gulliver&_sacat=220. Andre said that there should be some new sets in the future from Gulliver.

LOD Toy Soldiers has some new colors for their Medieval Sheriff’s Men & Robin Hood Merry Men sets. The Merry Men are in a new tan color and the Sheriff’s Men are in a new Gold color now. They look really nice. I will have some of these sets for sale at the Gettysburg Toy Show next Sunday.

As I was writing this post up Ken messaged me about an update on the American Revolution Cavalry set that he is working on. They look great. Here is what Ken said, Here are three of the prototypes for the new Calvary sets. I received them this week from the factory. If you would like to include them in your post, feel free to do so. There will be six poses in each set plus we will offer a bonus pose with a flintlock on its own.You can check the LOD page over here, https://lodtoysoldiers.com/.

Here are a few things that I have found out in the wild at some local flea markets. I found 4 more metal cannons for $10. Three of them I can use for the French & Indian War era. These cannons are about 1/32 in scale.

I found this Motorworks U.S. Sherman Tank for $27. It is about 1/32 in scale.

Who knows what I will find next week at the Gettysburg show? I think it will be a great show as usual. My next post will be about the show. Until then, that is it for now.

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year.

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year. It has been a difficult year for everyone. Let’s hope that next year is better. Here are some of my Custom made Playmobil figures that I had made over the years.

Here are a few things that I got this year for Christmas pictured below.

I found these two Britain Detail mounted figures for $4.50. I remember when I was a kid looking at the Britain boxed sets at Sterns department store. Me and my brother would be amazed by these figures. But they were too expensive at the time.

Britain 7th Cavalry
Britain Knight

My girlfriend found some of these LOTR figure sets at an antique mall.

Fellowship of the Ring

Here is a glass Ball jar that had some vintage toy soldiers inside. Most of them were rusty brown Andy Gard ringhand figures. Plus a few MPC ringhand Pirates.

Andy Gard Ringhand Figures
MPC Ringhand Pirates

Here is another custom made Playmobil figure that I made yesterday. He is a Viking raider. Like Santa he has a sack. But this guy is going to fill his sack up….

Now some hobby news from around the world. We start with some news from Prikaz. Here is a message from Alexy.

New shooters from “The Order.” I decided to stop producing Streltsy 1 and 2 sets. Now instead of them will be a set “Moscow Shooters 2″, in red , blue and green.”

You can see more of Prikaz toy soldiers on the catalog page over here, Prikaz Toy Soldiers.

The set “White Eagle” will now be produced in this format: selected, Cossack, hajduk, panzer, hussar.

Here is a nice display by Ken from https://lodtoysoldiers.com/.

Merry Christmas from Ken at LOD

Here are some of the latest Plastic Platoon sets. You can see more at their Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/soldiers.plastic.platoon.

“Wild Division” was one of the most successful in the history of the First World War. They were able to beat the superior forces of the enemy with amazing regularity. They actively participated in the famous Brusilov breakthrough. And in one of the battles in 1916, the “Wild Division” set a record – four times more prisoners were captured than it was in the personal composition of the division itself. From the Russo-Turkish and Caucasian wars, the Russo-Japanese, the First World War and the Civil War in Russia… The colors of the figures will be like that of Dontsov – gray, dark brown, blue, light brown (toffee) and ruby. Horses grey and brown. In the USA you get get these at, https://micshaunscloset.com/collections/engineer-basevich. Plus Plastic Platoon figures.

Here is an little update about my Anglo Saxons. They will be available next year some time late spring/early summer. I am getting the figures in and sorting them out into full sets. I should have the last batch of figures sometime next year. The virus has caused a lot of problems. Besides my figures I will have a few Russian brands of soldiers for sale at the shows. I am hoping next year is a lot better than this year!!!

This is for now. Thank you for reading 🙂

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.

That is it for now. Thank you for reading.
