    When I was young we played with a lot of such figures. These were almost everywhere to buy and were ready for action.. :lol:

    These figures weren't the tin ones to be honest. These were of quite hard or soft plastic and shaped quite accurate. Just like those of the Matchbox and others. Anyway it was a good fan to play with. I had two drawers full of them.

    Yep.. with my brother together. Two barricades made of playing blocks and books, Initailly the toy soldiers were fighting then , when all of them were killed , the two generals started struggling. Usually our father had to be a peacemaker with his belt together because the battle of two generals was very fierce. :lol:
