I wish Tim Mee toys (“Made in the USA”) were more widely and cheaply available in the UK. Whilst they can be tracked down online, the extra shipping to the UK makes them pricey.
Very kindly the Grand Duke of Tradgardland, the Tradgardmastre himself sent (via the D of T P.O.) these spare Tim Mee space figure poses for my collection and for Close Little Star Wars 54mm future adventures on the Back Yarden Planet.
Well it is the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landings …
These attractive figures wait on the painting table for suitable colour scheme inspiration to strike. Hopefully sometime by International Star Wars Day on May 4th? Or the July moon landing anniversary?

Hello I'm Mark Mr MIN, Man of TIN. Based in S.W. Britain, I'm a lifelong collector of "tiny men" and old toy soldiers, whether tin, lead or childhood vintage 1960s and 1970s plastic figures.
I randomly collect all scales and periods and "imagi-nations" as well as lead civilians, farm and zoo animals. I enjoy the paint possibilities of cheap poundstore plastic figures as much as the patina of vintage metal figures.
Befuddled by the maths of complex boardgames and wargames, I prefer the small scale skirmish simplicity of very early Donald Featherstone rules.
To relax, I usually play solo games, often using hex boards. Gaming takes second place to making or convert my own gaming figures from polymer clay (Fimo), home-cast metal figures of many scales or plastic paint conversions. I also collect and game with vintage Peter Laing 15mm metal figures, wishing like many others that I had bought more in the 1980s ...

Great figures – sort of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
That was a good TV series (1980s version), with a great diecast Corgi spaceship and figures, both sadly long gone. https://www.chezbois.com/corgi/1980/Model_647.htm
