Hanging amongst the random bagged toys in our local BHF shop were some figures that I did not recognise or have. Back home after a little web research I discovered these to be various 1/72 Revell WW2 Infantry sets from the 1990s.
For some reason, I’m not sure why, I didn’t post this at the time of buying earlier in the year. They have thus been accidentally saved for some Lockdown cheer!
I tracked down which figures they were through the ID photos on the very useful Plastic Soldier Review website.
I wasn’t familiar with these Revell figures as these three sets were first produced between 1990 and 1994 when I had stopped buying plastic WW2 figures. I already had the Airfix or Matchbox figures if needed then.
Two small squads with some dramatic poses and useful figures, good for a skirmish game. Even if these are under a third of a box set in quantity each, for a single Pound, who could argue?
There you go, another Pound to charity – the good old BHF and its random toy bags.
Another bag of aggressive playthings and random toy soldiers kept out of the pocket money clutches of today’s skint children, preventing them becoming the historical figure gamers of the future. I can live with that slight guilt. This skint eternal boy and 70s Airfix kid needs them more!
