Four Horsemen - Figura Obscura Exclusive - The Headless Horsemen

So even though this is a few days past Halloween (last year), wanted to highlight this awesome exclusive that Four Horsemen teased, released, and shipped immediately.  Figured I'd schedule it for this year to kick off the Halloween season.

Pegheads - Rankin Bass Hobbit

Awhile ago, I painted Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf from the Rankin Bass animated Hobbit movie from 1976. I finally sat down and painted the company of dwarves. I plan to make more of the characters (Elrond, Bard, goblins, trolls) but had to find the right sized peg people. The taller ones are hard to find.

Just for Fun - Les Kiddoz on Raptors

I try to support small businesses, especially toy manufacturers. Awhile ago, I discovered these articles Les Kiddoz figures from France. I put them on some Jurassic Park raptors for fun. The owner of Les Kiddoz saw my Instagram post and got a kick out of it. Always like mashing up properties.

WW2 101st Airborne Soldiers

I recently picked up two 101st Airborne soldiers at a toy soldier show. The first is of Lieutenant Dick Winters (from Band of Brothers fame), manufactured by King and Country. The other is a soldier from First Legion. I haven't purchased anything from them before. A well done figure.
