This is the Pound Store Police!

This is the excerpt for your very first post.


One of the joys of charity shop ‘lucky bags’ of plastic toys are the odd ones out.

This is where these great policeman and policewoman figures came from, possibly accompanying a vehicle set?

These could be repainted in lots of interesting ways – as police or as space police? The man has a “Dan Dare Pilot of the Future” look to him.

No maker’s marks on them.

Pound Store Pirate’s Moll

This is the excerpt for a placeholder post.



This scary looking female comes in a set of cheap painted pirates often found in toy stores and seaside shops.

She comes with some interesting protection tucked away in her hands behind her!


This female figure could be repainted in a variety of ways to suit different periods from  17th Century pirates to Wild West and even Gothic, fantasy, vampires, steampunk and Sci-Fi scenarios.

Civilian or female figures are often hard to find in pound store plastics.

I have repainted the base colour on her face as she had some strange gothic black eye paint in her factory original paint state.
