It's always a nice surprise when you find something that you didn't realise that you had or forgotten about.

That was quite a trip down memory lane Dal! A lot of those figures stirred some childhood memories for me although the 'Modern Germans' were after my time!

Really pleased that you enjoyed the upload Steve Very Happy . I suspect that the Timpo figures came from a second hand shop my Dad used to take me to as a kid. He was always buying toys for me from there, Its were most of my early Action Man figures came from.

Great stuff, Dal, thanks for sharing the pics!

I had the little plastic army men, as I called them. Don't remember anything about brand names or what happened to them. Great that you still have yours.

I remember seeing the tiny Airfix figures in the store many (many) years ago. I got so transfixed looking at them I forgot my mom was looking for me outside. Funny thing, she had absolutely no interest in hearing about these cool figures I found...

cheers cheers cheers
