    New Figarti Releases
    (May 23, 2013)

    Designed with typical German ingenuity, the bomb trolley with its hydraulic lift arm allowed German armorers to quickly wheel and lift heavy bombs into position under Stukas and other German bombers. Figarti Miniatures is proud to introduce its “Bomb Trolley” (ETG-092) with two armorers and a 500 kg bomb to use with its Battle of Britain Stuka. The bomb comes with a magnet so it can be attached to Figarti’s Stukas. With the fine detail that Figarti is know for, the wheels, hydraulic handle and pulling bar of the Bomb Trolley are all moveable so the piece can be flexibly positioned.

    MSRP $129.00 Trolley



    With the two drop tanks added under the wings to model the longer range version, Figarti Miniature’s “Desert Stuka” (DAK-006) recreates the famous snake decoration of the Ju 87R-2 Trop of the 6th Staffel, St.G. 2. The Stukas of this Staffel were stationed in Libya and supported Rommel’s early attacks in North Africa. With the fine detail that Figarti is known for, the Desert Stuka has a clear, moveable canopy showing a detailed cockpit, with the bomb and drop tanks attached by magnets and removable to add to its versatility. To add to your desert airfield vignette, Figarti proudly introduces its Desert Bomb Trolley (DAK-007) with two shirtless armorers and a 500 kg bomb with a magnet that can be attached to the Desert Stuka.

    MSRP $289.00 Stuka DAK-006
    MSRP $129.00 Trolley


    With the Eastern Front triggering images of brutal, freezing winter battlefields, Figarti Miniatures is proud to offer “Winter ISU-152” (EFR-021) in winter white camouflage. Nicknamed the “Zveroby” or “Animal Killer” by Soviet tank crews, the ISU-152 with its 95 lb. shell was one of the few Russian Tanks capable of blowing apart Panthers, Tigers and Elefants, Done the Figarti Way, this massive tank comes with a soldier wearing the baggy and poorly fitting Russian winter smock with attached mittens.

    MSRP $249.00

    What a week!
    (April 19, 2013)

    It has been a wild week in the Boston area. The Marathon Bombing, the end to the man hunt, the Red Sox on a winning streak and the power out in Malden on Friday.

    We would like to thank all the people involved with the Marathon for a great job responding to the injured. Our thoughts are with all those who were affected. We would also like to thank all the branches of law enforcement who were involved in the bizarre week in Boston.

    As the man hunt hunt went on Friday, all the power went out in Malden around 11:30Am for 20 minutes or so. Obviously we were a little concerned.

    Anyways I would like to thank all of the people who stopped in the store this week during the Chaos!

     

    This week we received...

    the new Ancient Greeks from First Legion Ltd.

    Game and Model re-stocks

    Thomas Gunn December Releases Announced
    (November 09, 2012)

    Thomas Gunn Miniature - December Releases

    SS044 Opel Blitz Medical Truck Normandy and Desert, 120 being made with RRP to customers of $135.
     
    SS049 Nebelwerfer in Normandy, Winter and Desert. 120 of the Normandy/winter available and 100 of the Desert. We made less Desert because as you all know its not as popular as the other two. However the Desert will look equally at home on a Western front dio due to the Germans paining all hardware from 1943 in a dark yellow colour scheme.Therefore you can use this selling point with customers hopefully in order to get multiple sales!
    Comes with 1 launcher and 4 rockets, RRP $45.
     
    SS050 Nebelwerfer Crew figure with rocket, once again in Normandy, Winter and Desert with 100 of each available, RRP of $31 due to the simplified paint scheme of each figure.
     
    NAP021 Marching Grenadiers in Imperial Guard livery for the A version, B version French line infantry wear grey coats and Shakos and C version wear brown coats with Shakos. To keep costs lower we have put 2 figures in each box as we figured most collectors would buy multiples of these for their dio. We have been asked many times for French troops in greatcoats so hopefully these will hit the right button for your customers. Not only that we have reduced the size of these figures (photo attached to prove it!) so that they will also sit nicely with K&C or CS figures in the same dio. There are only 65 sets available (2 figures per set) for each version with a RRP of $64 for the set. No doubt some customers who bought the slightly larger firing Imperial Guard are going to mention these new figures will not match their current Imperial Guard. However our argument is are you really going to mix and match a firing line with a marching line? I think overall the reduced size will mean more sales for everybody as we know the size was an issue, although some collectors did seem to prefer it.

    King & Country's New Holiday Set in stock!
    (November 13, 2008)

    King & Country's new Holiday set now shippin!

    XM008-01 "Last Christmas of the War"
    As is K&C's tradition every Yuletide Season we like to bring out a very special Christmas set. This year is no exception...
    Somewhere near the front line a couple of GI's are heating up some "K" rations. A pair of hungry Belgian kids (and their even hungrier mutt) appear out of nowhere.
    These two guys do what any other GI's would... they welcome the poor little trio and prepare to share their hot meal. In the background a ruined fireplace forms a realistic backdrop to the scene.
    Packed in its own specially-designed box this unique and heart-warming scenario makes the perfect Christmas gift or addition to a "Battle of The Bulge" collection.

     

    Also now in stock

    Battle of the Bulge from K&C

    BBA026 "Wounded M4 Sherman"
    A hastily snow-camouflaged Sherman stands forlorn... its right track has ran over a land mine and the results are plain for all to see... a badly damaged rear end plus a split track. Two U.S. tankers consider the problem... and ponder a solution.

    BBA027 "So, What's new... Are we winning?"
    Three GI's sit around their camp while one reads "Stars 'n' Stripes"... The GI's own newspaper. Before long the whole platoon will get the latest news...

    BBA028 "Takin' It Easy"
    While one GI rests on his ribs drinking a coke... the NCO stands wondering where he got it from!

    BBA029 "GI drinking coffee"
    Other guys might relax but some poor schmuck still has to stand guard duty... well at least this is one cold GI who can enjoy some hot coffee at the same time.

    The Chicago Show Sept. 28 - Check it out
    (September 10, 2008)

    The Chicago Show is fastly approaching. We will begin our journey (1050 miles) on the 23rd.

     

    The actual show is Sunday the 28th from 10AM-3:30PM. Room trading usually begins on Wednesday for the early birds. We should be open in the Rolling Meadows room by Wed. afternoon.

    We will be displaying and setting up a little different this year. Do to the shear mass of products we bring every year we decided, with a little help from the chairman, to set up in the first floor just down from the lobby.

    Here is the layout...

    Location: 1st Floor - City Rooms (located across from outside courtyard and next to staircase that leads to the lower level, about half way between the lobby and the rear parking area).

    There are 3 adjoining rooms. Joining us in the city rooms....
    > Rolling Meadows - Hobby Bunker
    > Arlington Heights - Figarti Miniatures
    > Schaumberg - Aero Art - The St. Petersburg Collection

    This move worked out even better for us than we anticipated. As many of you know the hotel is going through massive renovations and it just so happens that our usual rooms on the 4th floor won't be completed in time for the show! What else..the lobby will be closed and everyone will have to enter the Hyatt through the rear of the building.

    for general information on the show go to:

    http://www.toysoldiershow.com/

    or call Don at (630) 497-1239 phone

    Hope to see you there!

    King & Country July Releases
    (June 13, 2008)

    King & Country

    COMING IN JULY?

    A big bumper crop of WW2 and a nice couple of Chinese Army sets.
    a)      First the ?fighting? Wehrmacht?
    These German Army figures were originally meant to be in action in June but the transport bringing them to Hong Kong was shot up by a pair of RAF Typhoon fighter/bombers. The shipment is OK but the truck is a total ?write-off?? no news on the driver!
    WS116 ?Officer Pointing?A conscripted Police Officer giving directions
    WS117 ?Get Ready!?
    As one Wehrmacht Panzer Grenadier watches the advance of the enemy another prepares to pull the pin on his ?potato masher? grenade.
    WS118 ?Moving Forward?
    A three-man rifle section (including a Schmeisser-toting NCO) stealthily move closer to the enemy.
    WS119 ?On the Road?
    In the weeks and months following D. Day German vehicles found it increasingly difficult to move undetected along French roads. Infantry moved forwards (and backwards) by the traditional method? on foot. An NCO leads two of his riflemen to the front carrying extra ammo and weapons.
    WS120 ?Walking Machine Gun Team?
    This two-man set is a ?companion piece? to WS119.
     
    b) The Imperial Guardsmen? Chinese style
    Two fine sets of richly detailed and colourful soldiers of the Emperor?
     
    IC033 ?Chinese General Staff Set?
    A superb seated figure of a Chinese General of the Imperial Household Guard? Next to him a small table with his helmet? leaning over to advise him is one of his officers. Standing protectively over his General is the personal bodyguard carrying the richly decorated umbrella? Fantastic detail and a welcome addition.
    IC034 ?Chinese Armourer Set?
    Standing at the forge this Armourer is ?beating-out? a new sword next to him his assistant is working the bellows helping to ?heat-up? the forge. Every Army should have its Armourer?
     
    c)      ?ICE COLD IN ALEX?
    From 17th. Century China we journey forward to the blistering sands of the Western Desert in the dark days of 1942? with our latest 8th. Army releases? and what a great selection too!
    EA027 ?The Desert Austin K2 Ambulance?

    This is a model I personally have longed to do for many, many years? The Austin K2 Ambulance.Back in the late 1950?s a great British War movie called ?Ice Cold In Alex? came out. I saw it as a kid and loved it. It tells the story of a British Ambulance and its crew trying to escape an embattled Tobruk and cross the desert to Alexandria in Egypt. The film covers lots of their trials and tribulations on the journey? one of which is that there is a German spy among them!!!

    Anyway it?s a great flick? see it on late night telly or failing that? buy the bloody ambulance!
    This very, very British looking truck comes with a driver looking out for any land-mines.
    EA028 ?Stretcher Party?
    Two Royal Army Medical Corps stretcher bearers carry a wounded Tommy out of the battle and, hopefully, towards the ambulance? the perfect add-on to EA027.
    EA029 ?The Crusader Tank?
    Many, many 8th. Army Collectors have been requesting additional armour for the 8th Army sets? Well, here it is? ?The Crusader?. Up until the arrival of the American Shermans and Grants this was the best and fastest tank the British Armoured Regiments had. It could be unreliable but its speed often got it out of difficult situations.
    Our model is in typical 2 colour desert camo and in the markings of the 3rd. Hussars of the famous 7th Armoured Division ?The Desert Rats?. Each tank comes with a commander and a seated British Infantryman.
    EA030 ?8th Army Tank Riders?  Another great add-on! Three Scottish Infantrymen in a range of poses that can fit on the Crusader or stand off the vehicle on the ground as you prefer.
     
    AVAILABILITY: Mid July
     
     


    King & Country Now in stock!
    (May 29, 2008)

    KING & COUNTRY
    MAY 2008
            Welcome to the ?Merry Month of May? and this month?s ?DISPATCHES?? As usual a few surprises and, I hope, pleasant ones at that!
            So, here goes?
     
    1.     
    a) ?Remember The Alamo!?
    These latest additions add extra ?depth? and detail to this series plus bring in a couple of famous personalities?
     
    RTA035 ?General Manuel Castrillon?
    One of Santa Anna?s generals? this mounted figure observes the action through his telescope.
     
    RTA036 ?Mexican Soldier with Ladder?
    Running forward this ?soldado? carries his own ladder.
     
    RTA037 ?Wounded Mexican?
    This poor soldier has been brought to his knees either by grape-shot or a well-aimed musket ball.
     
    RTA038 ?Fighting Duo #1 ? James McGee, Ireland?
    The first of these dueling doubles? the enemy are already over the wall and it?s a fight to the death!
     
    RTA039 ?Naval Cannon & Musket Set ? William Wells, GA & George W. Tumlinson, MO?
    Many of the artillery pieces used in the Alamo were ?dismounted? ship?s cannon? this set comes with two gunners (one wounded) and an extra Musket, satchel and powder horn.
     
    RTA040 ?Swinging Rifle ? James Buchanan, AL?
    Either out of ammunition or no time to reload this Alamo defender uses his weapon as a club.
     
    RTA041 ?Fighting Duo #2 ? Andrew Kent, KY?
    RTA042 ?Mrs. Dickinson & Daughter?
    Santa Anna spared no male survivors of the battle however he did release, unharmed, several females and children. Susanna Dickinson and her small daughter are probably the most famous.
     
     
    b) ?Classic Sherman Leads The Way?
    Among the great new WW2 releases this month is K&C?s ?Classic Sherman?. This is the 9th K&C Version of this great American Tank and the backbone of the Allied Armies armoured forces during WW2.
     
    DD093 ?The Classic Sherman?
    This welded hull, M4 Sherman is relatively free of battlefield clutter although it does have TWO different loads of extra supplies that can be placed on or off the vehicle as the collector chooses. This fighting vehicle also comes with two crew figures (a head ?n? shoulders driver and a half body commander) and mounts the standard early/mid war 75 mm gun.
     
    DD088 ?GI Tank Crew?
    3 U.S. tankers that go great with our new ?Classic? Sherman or any of our other U.S. vehicles. One standing sergeant, one kneeling NCO and one lying mechanic. Very useful!
     
    c) ?The Big Red One?
    Activated first in 1917 the 1st Infantry Division has seen continues action ever since? right up to the present in Iraq.
    Our boys (comprising five two-man sets) are in Normandy in June and July 1944 fighting their way up from the beach, into the bocage and beyond.
     
    DD095 ?The Rescue?
    One GI pulls his wounded buddy to safety.
     
    DD096 ?Over There!?
    A veteran NCO points out an enemy position to one of the new guys in the platoon.
     
    DD097 ?Two-Man Patrol?
    A sergeant with ?Tommy Gun? leads a rifleman cautiously forward? the enemy are nearby.
     
    DD098 ?Alive & Dead?
    A crouching rifleman approaches a dead Waffen SS trooper.
     
    DD099 ?I Need More Ammo!?
    While his kneeling officer provides covering fire? a BAR gunner shouts out for extra ammunition.
     
    SPECIAL NOTE: All of these new figures can work together or separately to form some very exciting display possibilities.
     
     
    d) ?And Now For A Little Opposition?
    Of all the artillery pieces produced by the Axis or the Allies during WW2 the ?88 is justly the most famous (or infamous).
    First designed in the latter stages of WW1 this gun was to be originally operated in the Anti-Aircraft role.
    However early successes in Poland and the invasion of France showed that it was equally useful in the anti tank mode. In fact the ?88 won its fame and laurels destroying enemy armour as opposed to enemy aircraft.
    This latest K&C version? our 5th is one of the most different?
     
    WS103 ?The Flak 18 (sf1.) aufZugkraftwagen?.
    This 12-ton monster mounted the 88 on an armoured half track prime mover body. Our model, one of K&C?s biggest, comes with a crew of 5 Wehrmacht artillerymen and is 3-tone camouflaged in the style of typical mid to late war European Theatre of Operations and perfect for a Normandy style scenario.
     
    IMPORTANT: Planned Production Number for this item is just 750 models. Order Now!

    1A. ARNHEM REINFORCEMENTS

    MG002 ?Airborne Jeep & Trailer?
    Jeeps played an important transport role during the battle? apart from a few Gun Carriers, jeeps were ubiquitous during the battle ? recce jeeps? ambulance jeeps? radio jeeps? and, of course, hauling trailers full of ammunition and supplies.
    That?s what K&C has produced? an Airborne Jeep & Trailer complete with 2 Paras? one manning a Bren gun and the other driving. Inside the trailer are two large basket containers of supplies.
    MG017 ?Para walking with rifle?
    Classic image of a British Para making his way into Arnhem.

    MG019 ?Airborne 6 pounder Anti Tank Gun Set?
    3 kneeling and crouching Paras ready to fire the A-T gun. These air-portable artillery pieces were flown in by glider and took their toll of German armour during the battle.

    A kneeling Para with his trusty MK. V Sten gun.
    MG021 ?Lying Firing Sten?
    Similar to above but in the lying prone firing position.

    This K&C model comes with a complete 5-man crew? 3 of which are full body. Our fighting vehicle is in the markings of 501 Panzer Abteilung as it would have appeared in February 1943.

    The Great War Series (World War I)

    #TGW-003

    "The Spring Offensive"

    Four 1:32 Scale (54mm) Pewter Figures and free Scenic Base.

    Figures can be displayed on or off base.

    General Ludendorff, commander of all German forces, realized that between the end of the British offensive of 1917 and the arrival of the Americans in the summer of 1918, the war must be won. Well aware that he didn’t have an inexhaustible supply of manpower to draw upon, his forces must be tactically proficient, brave and, above all, smart. All troops were to undergo special training. Experts and instructors combed through the ranks selecting the youngest, most fit and experienced soldiers which were formed into Sturmabteilung – Stormtroops. ...Their duty was to cross No-man's-land, bypass centers of hard resistance and, if possible, break through to attack the enemy artillery. Behind the Stormtroops were heavy battle units consisting of infantry, machine gunners, mortar teams, engineers and field artillery. This new theory of fighting was one of infiltration – the fastest, not the slowest should set the pace. If defended positions resisted too stubbornly they were to be bypassed and mopped up by forces to follow. Even tanks were to be bypassed, although their accompanying infantry were to be annihilated.

    ...Overwhelming speed and power; these then were the tactics of "Kaiserschlacht," the Spring Offensive.

    #TGW-S01

    War Torn Tress

    1:32 Scale (54mm) resin scenics. Sets consist of eight pieces, tallest 6" in height. Suitable for any battlefield recreation, any time period.

    King & Country September Releases
    (August 22, 2007)

                    New September Releases from King & Country!
    For Your Information...

    A. Britain?s Private Desert Armies
    EA017 ?Major David Stirling?
    Originally a Scots Guards officer the tall Stirling came up with the concept of small, fast moving, self supporting groups of soldiers creating death and destruction where the enemy least expected it? Behind their own front lines. Stirling wanted his men to use the desert? often under cover of darkness to strike fast and then withdraw as rapidly as they had arrived!
    EA018 ?The Watchers?
    Another major role of both the SAS and LRDG was to observe and report on enemy positions and troop movements. These could then be ?radioed? back to HQ for analysis or? action. As one of this 2-man set observes the enemy through his binos the other observes the landscape around them.
    EA019 ?The Imposter?
    Among both the SAS and LRDG were fluent German-speaking refugees from Europe. Here one of them pulls on the uniform of a captured Afrika Korps soldier whilst his mate keeps his rifle trained on the prisoner. Perhaps the German ?Imposter? is going to misdirect an enemy convoy or enter an Axis camp? the plot thickens?
     
    EA020 ?The Attackers?
    Sometimes action speaks louder than words? Two of our ?Free-lancers? prepare to take on the enemy.
    EA021 ?On Guard?
    Here, is the ?classic? SAS figure? arab headdress? British tropical uniform? full beard and ?Tommy Gun? at the ready.
    EA022 ?SAS Mortar Team?
    While an attack is about to go in these two SAS Mortarmen prepare to lay down a little diversion for the enemy.
    EA023 ?LRDG 30cwt. Chevrolet Uncamouflaged?
    The ?Classic? image of the Long Range Desert Group is the 30cwt. Chevrolet Truck? In the beginning these were bought from the Egyptian branch of General Motors and customized by LRDG men themselves. Mounted with an eclectic array of weapons?each patrol commander decided on what he required?the trucks were kitted out with extra supplies, fuel and ammunition for forays into the desert that might last several weeks.
    EA023 comes in plain ?sand? finish and mounts two machine guns? a Bren and a Lewis Gun. A crew of three in a motley variety of British, New Zealand and Arab head dress and uniform complete the set.
    EA024 ?LRDG 30cwt. Chevrolet Camouflaged?
    Another ?Chevy?, this time partly camouflaged with a pale sky blue pattern on basic ?sand? colour. This vehicle mounts a ?Boyes? anti tank rifle on the rear and also carries a ?Bren? just in case?
    Three crew accompany the vehicle and like EA023 wear the typical assortment of uniform and head gear much favoured by the Long Range Desert Group.
    EA025 ?The SAS Recce Jeep?
    The favourite mode of transport for the SAS was the Jeep, albeit heavily armed, and ready for any trouble that might come their way.
     
    AVAILABILITY:  
    EA017 ? EA022                           Early September

    American Civil War

    Our new Civil War battle sets bring you to the field of Second Manassas or second Bull Run. The battle of second Bull Run was essentially an attempt at drawing Pope's army into battle. Jackson ordered an immediate attack on a Federal column that was passing straight across his front on the Warrenton Turnpike on August 28, 1862. Pope mistakenly thought he had ultimately trapped Jackson in the area of Brawner Farm. The attack was met with the largest mass counterattack of the war and Pope was crushed. Only an effective Union rearguard action prevented a replay of the First Bull Run disaster. Our new metal 54mm figure line offers a glimpse of the Confederate and Union troops on that fateful day.
    These are strictly limited edition, hand painted sets.
     
    There are 12 sets and Individual items currently in the range. Including Infantry Artillery and Cavalry.

    World War II - North Africa
     
    In June 1942 Erwin Rommel finally pushed the commonwealth armies out of the garrison of Tobruk in North Africa. Whilst the Germans ultimately took the garrison, it was the commonwealth troops' tenacity at defending it that took a would be German victory and turned it into a legend of Anglo compunction. The Collectors Showcase is proud to celebrate this historic battle with the release of our Tobruk 1942 60mm first release. Included in this set is the Mark I Panzer, the dreaded 88, the BMW R75, NSU Kettenrad, Rommel and Adjutant and attacking German Panzer Grenadiers.

    King & Country August Releases!
    (August 01, 2007)

                

    New Releases from King & Country!
    For Your Information...
    1. AVAILABLE IN AUGUST
    A. ?Fields of Battle? STURMGESCHUTZ III
    FoB038 ?Sturmgeschutz III Ausf. B? (Battle of France)
    Here?s a great little late addition to all of those July ?Fields of Battle? releases ? our latest STUG. This mark III model early war version sports the snub-nosed 75mm gun and two great crew figures. To ?accessorize? the model and make a dynamic little diorama the set also includes a French Customs barrier/sign and an unfortunate Poilu lying dead in the dust.
          
    B. ?Death of a Tyrant?
    WS104 (SL) ?ASSASSINATION OF HEYDRICH?
    One of August?s big surprises will be this dramatic set depicting the well-deserved fate of one of the Third Reich?s most feared and despised characters?Reinhard Heydrich.
    Himmler?s own right-hand man, Chief of the dreaded SD and Reichsprotektor of Bohemia Moravia, Heydrich was also one of the main architects of ?The Final Solution?. He was stalked and attacked by two very brave Czech patriots in May 1942. Although his assassination led to the deaths of many thousands of innocent men, women and children this was proof, even to the Nazis, that they were not ?invulnerable?.
    This, our first ?Strictly Limited? of 2007 depicts the actual moment of the attack on Heydrich when he was fatally injured by the bomb thrown by one of the assassins. This special set includes Heydrich himself?his SD driver?and the two brave Czech patriots Jan Kubis and Josef Gabcik and a superb model of the Reichsprotektor?s Staff Car.
    Also inside the ?Strictly Limited? box is a four-page summary of Heydrich?s infamous career and important background details on the attack and its tragic aftermath.
    This particular ?Limited Edition? comprises just 999 sets.
     
    C. ?THE BATTLE OF CRETE 1941?
    Here at last, the long-awaited and much-requested German Fallschirmjagers (or paratroopers).
    Almost a platoon?s worth and they?re ready for action.
    These new pieces are in the standard two-tone ?jump? uniforms of 1939-1942 and are perfect for the campaigns in the Low Countries (Belgium, Luxemburg and Holland) as well as France and, of course their most famous battle, the Capture of CRETE in 1941. These airborne troopers also fought in Greece, Yugoslavia, the Invasion of Russia, North Africa?Sicily?Italy?France and virtually every German theatre of operations. Although wearing early-mid war uniforms these continued to be worn alongside camouflage versions right up to the end of WWII.
    Here?s the set breakdown?
    FJ001-07 ?MG34 Machine Gun Team?
    A machine gunner and his ?spotter? laying down a belt of covering fire with their excellent MG34 gun.
    FJ002-07 ?Mortar Team?
    A two-man team provide mortar support with their small, portable leGrW36 weapon. This little mortar fired either a 2-inch high explosive round or a ?smoke? canister.
    FJ003-07 ?Weapons Container?
    Most German paratroopers jumped with only their personal side arm (usually a Luger or P38 pistol) as protection. Rifles and submachine guns (as well as heavier troop weapons) were dropped separately in airborne containers.
    Here, one is being unloaded and weapons distributed by a shouting Fallschirmjager.
    FJ004-07 ?FJ Bugler?
    Battlefields are, by definition, noisy and often radios don?t work so?bugles are simple and easy to operate and can be used to help gather and organize widely dispersed landing forces.
    FJ005-07 ?Returning Fire?
    A great little fighting section of 4 Fallschirmjagers in action.
    FJ006-07 ?Prisoner & Escort?
    A well-armed and aggressive paratrooper brings in his British prisoner-of-war. Could be northern France or Crete?the choice is yours!
    FJ007-07 ?Anti Tank Gun Set?
    Three FJ operate an easily air-portable 37mm anti tank gun.
    FJ008-07 ?FJ Motorcycle Combo?
    A highly mobile ?fire team? on their BMW add extra firepower to the assault. Heavier transport and equipment was ferried into the landing zone by specially adapted aircraft (JU52?s) and gliders.
    FJ009-07 ?FJ Dispatch Rider?
    Good communications are vital to any battle or campaign especially involving airborne forces?here is a typical FJ rider on his bike.

    King And Country June Releases
    (June 06, 2007)

           

                COMING IN JUNE...from King And Country


    A)Hitler's Wonder Weapons...

    WS100 The Fuhrer's Last Fighter
    As Germany's military situation became ever more desperate Hitler directed his engineers and scientists to come up with all kinds of "wonder weapons" and "miracle solutions" that would reverse the tides of war. One such project was the Focke-Wulf "Rammjager".
    This little jet fighter was designed to be flown by semi-skilled Hitlerjugend pilots with only the most rudimentary flying skills. They were to ram their small flying bomb into the midst of the massed Allied aerial armadas then bombing the Reich by night and day. It was rumoured that an ejection seat was provided for the young pilots to get out before their aircraft??s final explosion although this cannot be confirmed.
    Our model, WS100, comes with a special "trolley" to transport the little jet to its launch pad plus two standing Luftwaffe figures-a pilot/instructor and a saluting guard. Inside the "see through" cockpit you can also see a seated Hitlerjugend pilot.
     
     
    WS101 The Transporter
    To pull and position the trolley with its "Rammjager" jet we have a neat little Sd.KfZ252 Halftrack vehicle. These were normally used as battlefield transports to haul ammunition and other supplies to forward troops. Our model is in camouflaged Luftwaffe markings and has a "commander" half-body figure in the open top hatch.
      
      AVAILABILITY: Mid June
    B) "Return to Normandy...

    DD075 "The Patrol Jeep"
    A great looking set...three GI's of the famous 1st. Infantry Division "The Big Red One" and their ubiquitous 1/4 ton transport. In the front an officer sits next to his driver. Providing the "top cover" a standing GI rests on his .30 calibre machine gun.
     
     
    DD076 "Combat Photographer"
    A special "tribute" piece to Joe Rosenthal (the AP photographer who took the famous Iwo Jima photograph) and the thousands of other Allied combat photo and camera men who risked life and limb to cover World War Two and bring us so many stirring and incredible images of battle and war.
     
     
    DD077 "War Correspondent"
    The "companion piece" to DD076 is our seated at his typewriter "Ernie Pyle" War Correspondent. This terrific little figure is full of character another "tribute" to the war correspondent Ernie Pyle who wrote the classic "The Story of G.I. Joe" which was later made into a great WW2 movie starring Robert Mitchum and Burgess Meredith as Pyle himself. Sadly, Ernie was killed later in the war.
     
     
    DD078 "M12 155mm Gun Motor Carriage"
    This is the first of King & Country??s KINGSIZE collection...a big, big artillery piece with no less than 5 full-bodied artillery men to man the gun.
    Mounted on a Sherman tank chassis the 155 gun was originally of French design. Adapted and improved by the U.S. Army, this heavy artillery piece saw much action in the European Theatre of Operations in the latter stages of the war.
    Our gun comes with many fine detailed features and K&C's very own battle-worn appearance. It will provide collectors with lots of extra fire support!
      
    DD079 "General Omar Bradley"
    The GI's General and one of Eisenhower's most steady and reliable field commanders. Bradley commanded the US 1st Army Group during and after the Normandy invasion...here he stands, hands on hips, in a typical pose.
    DD080 "General James Gavin 82nd Airborne"
    The youngest divisional commander in the U.S. Army during WW2. Gavin was only 37 at the time of the Normandy and "Market Garden" jumps. He also enjoyed a very successful post-war military and civilian career. Here, he is in parade dress, saluting.
    DD081 "At Attention"
    A proud 82nd Airborne trooper in parade dress. Looks great in multiples...
    And now here's a whole bunch of GI's...a mixture 82nd and 101st. Glider troops...all in action...and available as individual figures...
    DD082 "Kneeling Officer w/Binos"
    Leading the attack is this crouching officer checking out enemy positions 82nd. Airborne.
    DD083 "Kneeling Firing Rifleman"
    Another kneeling figure...this one putting in some well-aimed shots. 82nd. Airborne.
    DD084 "Standing Firing Tommy-Gun"
    An NCO adding a little extra fire-power to the "fire fight". 82nd. Airborne.
    DD085 "Standing Firing BAR Gunner"
    Even more fire to keep the enemy's head down! 101st. Airborne. 
    DD086 "Running Forward"
    Moving to a new location...101st. Airborne. 
    DD087 "Warning!"

    John Jenkins Designs - NEW French & Indian War
    (April 28, 2007)

            

    NEW from

    John Jenkins Designs

    6 new British 47th Foot Sets

    http://www.hobbybunker.com/categorylist.cfm?body=mfg&ID=142&mscID=614

    THE SIEGE OF QUEBEC

    BATTLE OF THE PLAINS OF ABRAHAM 1759

    NOW AVAILABLE!

    Although the British army which was besieging the city of Quebec had around 8000 troops.

    The force that Major General Wolfe took onto the Plains of Abraham for the battle was around

    4,500 men and 1 gun.

    The Marquis de Montcalm brought to the battle a force of around 5,000 men and 3 guns.

     

     

    The 47th Regiment of foot, played a key role in the French and Indian War.

    They were under Wolfe's command at the Siege of Louisburg, and were one of the key regiments

    in the British battle line at The Battle of The Plains of Abraham.

    Wolfe was so well-respected by the men of the 47th, that to commemorate the Death of Wolfe in the battle,

    the regiment began wearing a black line in their lace and were also given the nickname

    "WOLFE'S OWN"

    New Conte Collectibles ACW Painted Metal Sets
    (April 01, 2007)

        All new Conte Collectibles ACW Sons of the South just added to our website.

    Here is the links

    http://www.hobbybunker.com/categorylist.cfm?body=mfg&ID=4&mscID=615

    What Conte has to say about then....

     

    Dear Fellow Collector,

    We have just today (3/19/07) received the first advance shipment of the much talked about & awaited Sons of the South American Civil War sets. I am extremely proud of this new range of Civil War figures...without any doubt I can assert that this range sets a new standard for us and is an exciting step forward from our already highly popular range of Civil War figures  which have depicted the "Late Unpleasantness Between the States" for the past seven years.. As great as our previous Civil War figures have been, THESE take things to the next level......

    These stalwart fellows look more like living, breathing warriors than they do toy soldiers.  My intention was to create the utmost in realism with this range and make the collector feel as though you 'are there' just moments before  the Sons of the South crash into the Union line.  Intensity, determination, pride and self assuredness is amazingly 'written' onto the faces and the body language of these figures.....as is pain when the inevitable casualties occur.. These gentlemen will give their all for Master Robert and their beloved South.

    These sets are so unique that they all have been labeled as "Signature Sets" and make their appearance in deluxe new packaging.  When you hold these fellows they might at first seem more substantial  than usual due to the extra  'heft' of the pewter in the larger than usual bases/stands.  (We've received lots of requests -ever since our Rangers/Indians series was released-- that we increase the size & detail of the bases/stands of all of our other ranges.....we've listened.

    Seven new sets numbered SOS-002 through SOS -008 are in the warehouse.  The office is calling to confirm preorders first and then will commence general shipping . If you've been waiting for these please call or email immediately as this advance shipment will sell out within the next 10 days (and then it may be over a month or more until the next batch arrives)

    These sets are the first seven of 16 new ACW sets which were premiered in prototype form at OTSN and created a general frenzy due to the incredible sculpting, enhanced painting and larger figure stands/bases.
    These sets are ALL 'fine pewter' (not less expensive white metal alloys used by many in the toy soldier world). Additional 'waves' of this series will have hand to handsets and plenty of Yankee opponents.

    The prices for these sets are slightly higher than what we've charged for past ACW offerings  due to the additional pewter used, a more intricate level of painting &  the amazing sculpting .... resulting  in heretofore unseen animation and action.

    All seven sets portray tanned, weathered (sometimes grizzled & dirty), and weary Confederate veterans in action...in the midst of any number of historic charges.  Most collectors who see these immediately conjure up images of the final moments of Pickett's Charge.

    King and Country April 2007 Releases
    (March 13, 2007)

        King and Country upcoming April releases


    April will definitely be different this year with the launch of King & Country's entry into WORLD WAR ONE figures and fighting vehicles. Many collectors and more than a few dealers have been requesting that K&C produce WW1 figures for quite a while now. Well, it's finally happened! To be honest I've always loved this historical period and been fascinated by the many different battles and campaigns that the Great War offers to a military miniature make.
    So, K&C is going back to the beginning with "1914... The March on Paris". Our first releases are all German and are in the typical uniform style of the early war... "field gray tunics and cloth-covered pickelhaubs". These first releases are in "parade" mode... action figures will follow later. They are on their way to battle... the war is still a great big adventure... the grim reality of modern 20th century warfare is still in the distance... but not for long!

    FW001 "The Kaiser"
    Kaiser Wilhelm II... "Kaiser Bill" to the British Tommies --- dressed immaculately in his Feldmarshall's uniform surveying his troops.

    FW002 "Kaisers Aide De Camp"
    The monarch's ADC in typical relaxed pose.

    FW003 "The Crown Prince"
    "Little Willie", the Kaiser's eldest son... a military incompetent who was given, thanks to his father, a field command. He is dressed as an honorary colonel of a Lifeguard Cavalry Regiment.

    FW004 "Hindenburg"
    The fabled and imposing Paul Von Hindenburg --- one of Germany's greatest generals and future Chancellor of Germany before Hitler.

    FW005 "Mounted Officer"
    A mounted Major of the 13th Bavarian Rifles saluting.

    FW006 "Marching Officer"
    Sword drawn this officer of the 13th strides purposely onwards.

    FW007 "Officer with Flag"
    Another officer of the 13th carrying the German Battle Flag over his shoulder.

    FW008 "Bugler"
    This Drummer/Bugler marches at the head of the column keeping up the men's spirits.

    FW009 "Rifleman"
    Marching to the front confident in his cause... his officers and... his country.

    FW010 "Standing Rifleman"
    About to be inspected or on guard duty... the choice is yours.

    FW011 "Standing Officer"
    Another officer of the 13th awaiting orders...

    FW012 "Corporal Hitler"
    Although Austrian by birth Adolf Hitler eagerly joined the Bavarian Army on the outbreak of War. Personally brave he was awarded the Iron Cross and rose to the dizzy heights of "Corporal".

    FW013 "The Kaiser's Staff Car"
    A handsome open-topped, automobile complete with military driver and military police bodyguard.

    These few pieces are just the first of what K&C believe will be a very important project for collectors and dealers all over the world. Watch out for more...

    AVAILABILITY:Early April (FW001 to 012)
    Mid April (FW013)
    "CHARGE!"
    As if World War One was not enough K&C has a major addition to its "Age of Napoleon" figures this April... Some real "heavy metal" in the form of no less than 13 French Cuirassiers and one beautiful little "Cantiniere".
    Here they are in all their glory... stabbing... slashing... cutting their way into collections everywhere!

    NA111 "Cuirassier General"
    Wearing a plumed and feathered officers hat this senior officers puts himself in harm's way leading the charge.

    Carrying his Regiment's Guidon this trooper has just received a blow to the head.

    NA113 "Trumpeter"
    Sword drawn... trumpet bugle to the rear this musician prepares to fight...

    NA114 "Charging Sword Forward"
    A typical Cavalryman's action pose.

    NA115 "Falling-off Horse"
    An unfortunate trooper, his foot caught in his stirrup being dragged to his fate.

    King And Country March 2007 News
    (March 12, 2007)

                        

    New Releases from King & Country!
    For Your Information...

    All new WWII German Sets

    1. WHAT'S NEW IN MARCH?
    WS087 "HALT!"
    A 2-man motorcycle combo set. Two German "Feldgendarmes" have stopped their machine to conduct a "spot check" on all passing vehicles. As the driver sits astride his bike, his dismounted partner, machine pistol at-the-ready, flags down all cars and trucks.

    WS088 "ROAD BLOCK!"
    Two more "chained- dogs" or Feldgendarmes have dismounted and are setting up an identity check of civilians.

    WS089 "Dispatch Rider"
    A single Feldgendarme on his BMW motorcycle delivering an important message.
    From two and three wheels we go to four wheels for our next examples of German WW2 transports...

    WS090 "Opel BLITZ Truck"
    This, the most famous and ubiquitous German truck of WW2 has been a long-requested item for many dedicated K&C collectors. Our first release is the "Normandy" camouflage version --- a 3 colour paint scheme typical of the late war period. A seated driver... removable rear canvas top plus rolling wheels make it a vital part of any K&C collection.

    WS091 "GESTAPO ARREST!"
    With their chronic shortage of motorized transport the Germans were only too happy to confiscate all kinds of vehicles in occupied lands. One of their favourites was the Traction 11CV built by the famous French auto company Citroen.
    Here this little 4 door saloon/staff car is in the colours and markings of the dreaded Gestapo! An SD (Secret Police) officer and SD man closely guard a resistance suspects being taken for interrogation. Set includes a seated SD driver.

    WS092 "TOUR OF INSPECTION"
    This time our model is in Wehrmacht markings and camouflage and... has a very important passenger... Albert Speer, Hitler's favourite architect and head of Organization TODT... the party organization tasked with, among many other things, the design and construction of "The Atlantic Wall"... Hitler's chain of fortifications and obstacles stretching from Norway in the North to the beaches of Normandy in the West. Speer chats with an OT building foreman while a German General looks on. A seated driver is also included in the fully detailed car interior.

    WS093 "Standing Saluting German Officer"
    Dressed in full "fighting order", this young Wehrmacht soldier proudly gives the "regular" soldier's salute not the Nazi "Sieg Heil".

    WS094 "Standing German Guard"
    Well wrapped up in his long greatcoat this German "soldaten" with shouldered rifle is alert and ready for anything!

    WS095 "Marching German Officer"
    Striding forward this German Officer looks confident that he can handle just about any problem or situation put forward to him.

    WS096 "Marching German Soldier"
    Dressed in typical late war Wehrmacht uniform this rifleman looks even better in multiples!

    WS097 "Medical Evacuation Motorcycle Combo"
    Although short of 4-wheeled transport the Germans had a wealth of motorcycles. Here one has been specially converted to carry a stretcher and patient to the nearest first aid post.

    AVAILABILITY: Now ! ! !

    On the "Afrikan Front" there's also the release of...

    AK037 "Opel BLITZ Truck" (Afrika Korps)
    A very useful desert variation on WS090 complete with fully detailed cab interior... removable rear canopy... rolling wheels... an AK Driver and a battle-worn paint finish.

    Oh, and just in case you think it's only WW2 and only German we've also get a little package from Hong Kong.

    HK159 "The Metal Worker"
    Another superb little old Hong Kong vignette of street-life at the turn of the century. This time it's a "fixer" of broken and damaged metal ware... pots, pans, woks and all kind of knives, forks and spoons.

    AVAILABILITY: Mid March

    King and Country February Newsletter
    (February 11, 2007)

        
    New Releases from King & Country!
    For Your Information...


    1. WHAT'S New in FEBRUARY...
    The last few years has seen an upsurge in interest and collectability of the "War in the Desert"... North Africa 1940-1943... the battle between the British and the Germans and the Italians (and latterly the Americans).
    These latest releases expand and explore some lesser known aspects of this Desert War.
    SP028 "Desert Oasis Well"
    Water is the most precious commodity in the dry arid heat of the Middle Eastern desert lands and here's one solution... our K&C"Desert Oasis Well". A simple stone structure, unchanged for centuries, provides liquid refreshment for weary travellers and rampaging armies.
    This little well works equally good with Ancient Egyptians...Napoleonics... and, of course, our Crusaders and Saracens as well as Afrika Korps and 8th Army.

    AK030 "Desert Panzer II Set"
    An upgraded version of an earlier K&C release. This nifty little German tank comes with an aerial recognition flag on the rear... an AK tank commander and... 3 fighting Italian "Blackshirt" infantry in support.
    German and Italian forces in the desert had the occasional luke- warm support of some elements of the French Vichy Armed forces... in this case, their indigenous Camel Corps.

    AK031 "Vichy French Camel Corps Sergeant"

    AK032 "VF Arab Camel Corps Rider on Drinking Camel"

    AK033 "VF Arab Camel Corp on Guard"

    AK034 "VF French Officer dismounted taking a compass bearing... with sitting Camel".

    AK035 "Afrika Korps Motorcycle Combo"
    A much- requested item... Two AK riders on reconnaissance and they've spotted trouble.
    Special Note:This is a brand- new sculpted motorcycle completely different from WS74 set released in 2006.

    Finally, for this Desert War release we are releasing some badly-needed armoured forces for the British side...

    EA016 "Desert Vickers"
    Until the arrival of better armed and better armoured American alternatives Britain's Eighth Army had to make do with what was available. In this case the already obsolete Vickers MK. VI light tank. This model is a "desertised" version of our now retired FoB one and comes with 3 superb all-new crewmen figures.
    AVAILABILITY: NOW!


    2. "COMING IN MARCH"
    March is a bumber month for collectors of our World War Two Germans... No less than 7 different transport vehicles-motorcycles... trucks and... a staff car or two!
    Let's begin with one of our brand-new motorcycle combinations...

    WS087 "HALT!" A 2-man motorcycle combo set. Two German "Feldgendarmes"have stopped their machine to conduct a "spot check" on all passing vehicles. As the driver sits astride his bike, his dismounted partner, machine pistol at-the-ready, flags down all cars and trucks.

    WS088 "ROAD BLOCK!" Two more "chained- dogs" or Feldgendarmes have dismounted and are setting up an identity check of civilians.

    WS089 "Dispatch Rider"A single Feldgendarme on his BMW motorcycle delivering an important message.
    From two and three wheels we go to four wheels for our next examples of German WW2 transports...

    WS090 "Opel BLITZ Truck" This, the most famous and ubiquitous German truck of WW2 has been a long-requested item for many dedicated K&C collectors. Our first release is the "Normandy" camouflage version-a 3 colour paint scheme typical of the late war period. A seated driver... removable rear canvas top plus rolling wheels make it a vital part of any K&C collection.

    WS091 "GESTAPO ARREST!" With their chronic shortage of motorized transport the Germans were only too happy to confiscate all kinds of vehicles in occupied lands. One of their favourites was the Traction 11CV built by the famous French auto company Citroen.
    Here this little 4 door saloon/staff car is in the colours and markings of the dreaded Gestapo! An SD (Secret Police) officer and SD man closely guard a resistance suspects being taken for interrogation. Set includes a seated SD driver.

    WS092 "TOUR OF INSPECTION"
    This time our model is in Wehrmacht markings and camouflage and... has a very important passenger... Albert Speer, Hitle's favourite architect and head of Organization TODT... the party organization tasked with, among many other things, the design and construction of "The Atlantic Wall"... Hitler's chain of fortifications and obstacles stretching from Norway in the North to the beaches of Normandy in the West. Speer chats with an OT building foreman while a German General looks on. A seated driver is also included in the fully detailed car interior.
    WS093 "Standing Saluting German Officer"
    Dressed in full "fighting order", this young Wehrmacht soldier proudly gives the "regular" soldier's salute not the Nazi "Sieg Heil"

    WS094 "Standing German Guard"
    Well wrapped up in his long greatcoat this German "soldaten" with shouldered rifle is alert and ready for anything!

    WS095 "Marching German Officer"
    Striding forward this German Officer looks confident that he can handle just about any problem or situation put forward to him.

    WS096 "Marching German Soldier"
    Dressed in typical late war Wehrmacht uniform this rifleman looks even better in multiples!

    WS097 "Medical Evacuation Motorcycle Combo"
    Although short of 4-wheeled transport the Germans had a wealth of motorcycles. Here one has been specially converted to carry a stretcher and patient to the nearest first aid post.
    AVAILABILITY: Early March (WS087 to 089, WS093 to 097)
    Mid March (WS090 to 092)


    Also coming in March!

    AK037 "Opel BLITZ Truck" (Afrika Korps)

    Sad news from Hong Kong
    (January 29, 2007)

        I just wanted to share some sad news. Howard, Gerard's partner at Frontline Figures has passed away this week after a hard fight with cancer.

    Howard was a great guy if you got to know him at all. He was a quiet a man but he usually opened up at the Bar in Chicago or at the West Coaster. I always enjoyed chatting with he and Gerard and was able to form a good friendship over the last 9 years. Howard will be sorely missed by all.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Howard, Gerard and everyone at Frontline Figures and their families and we are deeply sorry for the loss.

    Keep up the fight Gerard!

    - Matt

    1/27/2007 From Gerard...


    "Hi,

    It is with deep sadness I have to report that last Wednesday Howard died

    in hospital after putting up a valiant struggle against cancer. We inHong Kong are all in shock but knew this day was inevitable.

    With Howard leaving us the company will not be the same. He contributed
    to Frontline Figures from its beginning. His master making carved (if
    you excuse the pun) a leading roll in this industry and many others have
    followed his path. Together we made masters of standards not seen in the
    industry at the time and have continued to push the limits of what can
    be achieved.

    Please understand there may be a few bumps in the road to come but I
    will continue the work both Howard and I started together.

    Best regards,

    Gerard Prime
    Frontline Figures "

    The Forum is Down for now!
    (December 09, 2006)

               

     

    12/31/2006

    The forum Should be back up and running by the end of the week.!

    .............................................................................................................................................................................

     It seems some joker has hacked into our forum. We temporarily  took it down. Hopefully the forum will be up and running on Monday or Tuesday. Thank you for all of you that made us aware of the problem. Unfortunately some people like to ruin things for the rest of us. The forum was the only thing that was affected by the hackers. It is basically a different website and hobbybunker.com is fully operational.

    "Tis the Season!

    Sorry for the inconveinence.

     

    12/12/2006 Update.

    The forum experienced a low level hack. The forum is a sub-website and appears to be the only thing that was affected. There is no need to be concerned. I will provide more details and let you no when it will be up and running again.

    Thanks, Matt
