More Fun for Less – Party Favor Plastic Cowboys and Indians

A good toy slogan to have “More Fun for Less.” These funexpress.com Made In China Cowboys and Indians have a couple of interesting poses, some of which echo the familiar Airfix and Britain’s Deetail Cowboys and Indians.

They were ordered online from a UK “party favors” shop, an interesting but sometimes expensive place to find plastic figures.

They are marked MARIES 0415 funexpress.com on the base. They were £3.60 including postage, so 36p each.

The plastic figures are slightly larger than the usual 54mm figures but close enough, the last picture gives a size comparison with similar Britain’s 54mm lead hollowcast figures.

Two of the plastic figures alongside a Britain’s hollowcast lead cowboy and repaired Indian.

I look forward at some point to painting these in Gloss toy soldier style.
