WW2 Plastic Toy Soldier Ghurkas

I had this set as a kid. I vaguely remember picking it up on a rack display in a grocery store. While I was intrigued by their funny hats (non Steel pots) they had some cool poses and weapons. Little did I know these were Ghurka soldiers from the British Empire.

GI Joe 1984 Series Wooden Pegheads

This is my fourth set of wooden pegheads painted as vintage 80s GI Joe characters. I start with the single carded figures - Blowtorch, Firefly, Mutt and Junkyard, Recondo, Ripcord, Roadblock, Scrap Iron, Spirit and Storm Shadow. To make an even ten, I added Cutter as the first vehicle packaged figure.

Harry Potter Magical Minis

I'm a sucker for anything Harry Potter because my daughter loves it so much. Though she's outgrown "collectibles", dad certainly steps in.

I don't see this line lasting beyond what's already been released. The legs are so thin they can barely stand on their own, though they have magnets in their feet.

Toy Cardbacks

It's not enough that my toys take up so much space, but so do the cardbacks which non toy collectors would discard as trash. I found my stack of cardbacks and plan on putting them in a comic storage box.

Some vintage. Some new. All fun.

Barzso Revolutionary War Plastic Soldiers

I've had these toy soldiers for awhile. Decided to set them up on the grass mat and the foam fort I recently purchased.

The Colonial Militia and British Redcoats are from Barzso.
