Instead my buddy Alan McGhee will have some of our products there so check out what he has. The show is Sunday the 29th in Lake Worth, FL have a great day if you can attend. It's always a great show featuring both new and old toy soldiers (metal & plastic)as well as action figures and militaria.
        As far as toy soldiers go we received the latest Thomas Gunn Figures, we expect the last King and Country releases on Monday and the newest First Legion is en route. We have also just added some plastic figures as well as glossy toy soldiers to our Rare and retired section and ebay (check it out). I also added some older King and Country US Airborne and Fallshirmjagers to the R&R section. Last week I added a couple dozen FOB's and RAF's to the King and Country Collection (EC) section. This weekend I will be adding some Iwo Jima items.

    Happy belated New Year!,
         The Holidays are over and I am just back from the West Coaster Toy Soldier Show. The show is usually in March so we had to scurry around to get everything ready during the Holidays. I had a great show and did a little sightseeing in between selling Toy Soldiers. The attendance was pretty good considering a date and venue change. We plan on being there again next year to support the hobby and the show. This week we are doing a little tiding up and restocking in the store as well as planning on giving the shop a little face lift in the coming weeks. I am also sorting out the rest of the massive King and Country collection along with a couple thousand plastic soldiers so hopefully we will be getting 100's of great items up on the site for you to browse through very soon.

    A quick pic from the West Coaster Toy Soldier Show..this is my long stretch of goods I had for sale.

    Greetings,
         It's been I will since I emailed so I wanted to waste no more time in getting some information to you. Firstly we hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and is gearing up for the rest of the Holidays. Secondly our catalog was mailed out last week. It is much smaller and in a new format than in past years. We hope you like it and it works because we fell like we can get smaller ones out more frequently to you. I hope to send them out every couple of months in the coming year.
        This weekend we have a few things happening. I am heading down to the last show of the year in Virginia this weekend. I hope to see some of you on Saturday. The rest of the crew will be here gearing up for Holidays sales and managing the gamers! Currently we have a Malifaux Tourney planned with an expected 24 players. There will also be a mini-Warmachine Tourney going on as well as other pick up games. We expect the gaming area to be packed.
        


         We just received a big restock of 28mm Plastic Gaming figures, Rule Books and other items from the UK yesterday so come and browse!  We also just received a huge shipment from our regular gaming distributor and we expect the New "Wrath of Magnus" and "Thousand Sons" Games Workshop release on Friday.
         In our metal soldiers category we just received the latest batch of K&C releases, and Thomas Gunn Romans and KM005 Mini-Submarine . In the plastic soldier category we just received the Classic Toy Soldiers North Korean Soldiers to accompany the Chinese Soldiers. This is only the second set of plastic Korean War figures ever made. Most WWII Americans would be suitable as opposing forces (TSSD, Airfix and Classic Toy Soldiers all make GI's). See below for link to buy. We also just got a second batch of the LOD Enterprises Greek/Trojan Chariots.

      null
    Our featured item this week is King And Country's new German Military Policeman--single figure LINK:WH059

    We are wrapping up September with some great new products. The New magic Card set is now in the store. Come on down pick up a box and draft tonight for FNM. We also have the new TSSD Vietnam figures, LOD Trojan & Greek Chariots and the new Paragon Scenics Alamo Mexicans, see below for links. We also want to thank all of you who attended the Chicago Toy Soldier Show last week. As usual we had a great time. Sales were great, Customers were happy and the bar crowd had fun as usual.

    In our metal soldiers category we just received the last batch of K&C releases, Thomas Gunn Releases and John Jenkins Designs. We got the word that the highly anticipated German 88mm Gun from W.Britains should be releases right before Christmas. We also have a limited supply of Figarti Panther G tanks on hand and are expecting another smaller batch in a couple of days. If you pre-ordered and provided payment they were shipped. We have some other pending orders waiting for confirmation.


    Here are a few of the mini-dioramas we made at the Chicago Show last week.

    Hello everyone we hope you are enjoying the last days of summer. Tomorrow my Dad will be representing Hobby Bunker at the Heart of the South Toy Soldier Show in Annandale, VA. Stop by and pay him a visit, it may be his last trip to VA (he has been on hiatus down there for a couple of years). I will be busy packing for the Chicago Show, coaching my sons football team and trying to squeeze in the UMass vs. BC football game.

    Just a quick note this week. We have the first batch of the King and Country September releases arriving this coming week. We also are now taking orders for the new TSSD Vietnam plastics soldiers that will be released at the Chicago Show in 2 weeks.

    So we will see some of you tomorrow? at the Toy Soldier Show
    At the Annandale VFD Community Center

    Annandale, VA 9AM-3PM

    If not we hope to see you in 2 weeks in Chicago!

    Many of you know we are in possession of dozens of Marx and MPC molds and have been re-issuing them for years. At this time many of the molds will be run for perhaps just one last time. Getting these items molded locally has been difficult this past year or so. The small companies get bought up or disappear. Some molds may get scrapped and other items will have a price increase. Some molds may be sold. At this point we are unsure of the future of the reissue business!
     
    If you had your eye on some of these items get them now before they disappear or prices increase. A few items such as the Landing Craft and Wrought Iron fence just came back into stock. We will be sorting and bagging a few more this summer. Some molds have been scrapped some items we have just dozens left on hand.

      Here are a couple New items...
    A new Version of the MPC WWII Playset and a Marx Missle Set as well as some Payton Military Trucks

    Memorial Day is Monday...take some time to remember the brave who allow us to live free. 
    We will be open Monday 10AM-4PM
     
            What's going on this month? Well I am currently half way through my 4 shows in a row craziness. I will be heading off to Texas very soon. The Show is at the Menger Hotel this Saturday and Sunday in San Antonio. I look forward to chatting with many of you at the show. We will wrap up things with a show in Annandale, VA on June 4th. Then I will have some time to breath and catch up on things. 
       We had a great time at the MFCA show as usual. There is a great group of guys that put the show on and the customers and patrons are always wonderful to work with. We had a few in the Hotel Pub when we arrived, Friday had a fine meal at Hooter's and of course stopped at the Blue Colony Diner in CT on the ride home. I didn't take many pictures at the show but I took a pretty good video of our booth. If you are on Facebook you can find it on our page. Link: Video
    Here are a few Pictures from Valley Forge and the MFCA Show.

    Our Featured item this week is  Thomas Gunn Miniatures New Winter German Sniper…Link: SS058 and Don’t forget the companion piece German Spotter. The figures are also available in Normandy Coloring.

    I’m currently catching up with family and I am grounded for a couple more weeks before I head up to Maine for the Huzzah Show. We just picked up 30 boxes of wargaming miniatures and accessories from a collection. It includes small scale ships to 28mm Sci-fi and everything in between. Come in and check it out or stop by our booth at Huzzah. Today we just received a pile of new games along with the last April release from King and Country.  We also just added many more items to our Rare and Retired Section and Old Britains section and we are in the process of updating Del Prado, Flames of War and a few other makers on our website.

    Our Featured item this week is  Thomas Gunn Miniatures New Australians... The Rising Sun range keeps expanding. The Japanese Soldiers are amazing as well. Link: Aussies!

    Well my trip to New York City was a success. I had an amazing time filming the Strange Inheritance Show, the host Jamie Colby was a pleasure to work with. I will be sure and spread the word when it will be airing on Fox Business and get a you tube link to share. I did some sightseeing while in the city including Wall St., The Trinity Church, Pier A, Fort Clinton (1812), Federal Hall and more.
    I wrapped up the trip with the New Jersey Toy Soldier Show on Sunday. Thank you to all that attended. Growing up in Boston and being a sports fan I can honestly say the NYC is starting to grow on me. The warmer weather has finally hit Boston so take a drive or take the "T" and come out and visit us. If visiting Boston you can park in the garage across the street from us on the weekends for free and take the "T" into town and of course say hello to us!  

    Here is a great Diorama made by "Harry" one of our forum members. "When the Forest Ran Red."

    Our Featured item this week is  King and Country's World War II - German Focke-Wulf 190A-4 (Winter) Link: LW062

    Well April kicked off with 2 great shows this past weekend along with a Spring snowstorm. Sunday morning I awoke to snow that lasted the entire 90 mile drive to Chicopee for the Wings and Wheels Show. The roads were tough to drive on and it was COLD but most of the patrons showed up to make it a good show. The store was very busy over the weekend despite having two local shows. We hosted two Magic the Gathering Pre-release's for Shadows over Innistrad. On Saturday we had 30 participants and Sunday 22. Both days we had to turn people away. We also had a Warmachine/Hordes Tournament going on in the gaming area. The HAVOC wargame show in Shrewsbury, MA had all the usual suspects and games happening. I brought my 9 year old son on Saturday and as usual he had a blast.

    This weekend we have our local NETSS Toy Soldier Show in Woburn, MA. Please come out and support us if you can. The next meeting of the Military Collectors of New England will be held on Thursday, March 14th, at 7:30 pm at The Hobby Bunker.  I hope you can be there!

    News head Aug 2013 
    Our featured item this week is the John Jenkins Design Great War "American Mack AC Bulldog Truck"  LINK: GWUS-01

         Well we are nearly half way through January and we finally got our first taste of snow. Our Magic the Gathering Pre-release was a hit. We sold out again. Thank you to all that attended.  Also we received most of the much anticipated World War II series from W. Britains (see below) along with a few other goodies. King and Country's New Easy Eight "Fury Tank" should be in the middle of next week so pre-order now to ensure you get one. We have also updated our Super Sale section, check it out for some great finds. 
          Last week we picked up a nice collection of WWII 1/32 Scale aircraft kits and aircraft books. Stop by the shop or check our ebay and amazon  listings. Here is a sampling. 
      

    Mark your calendars for the next East Coast Figure Artist meeting. 
    It will be held here at the Bunker on Sunday February 21st 1PM - 5PM
         
    Here is a great diorama by one of our forum members. With the snow hitting the East Coast I figured I'd "Green up" your day.

    Well we are already half way through November and the Holidays are right around the corner. The East Coast Toy Soldier Show in NJ has come and gone. We would like to thank all of you who attended and made the show a success. We would also like to thank all of you who attended FALL IN! in Lancaster, PA. We had some car problems and some technical difficulties but the show went off great. Tomorrow we will be heading down to the Long Island Historical Miniatures show in Freeport, NY. It will Friday 6-9PM and Saturday 9AM-3PM. Hope to see you at the show.

    Here is an action shot from the NJ show on 11/1. That is me kneeling down during the early morning set up.

    August News
    (August 11, 2015)

    We had a great time at Boston Comic Con last weekend. The crowd was huge, the hours were long and the costumes were fantastic! Below from left to right – “Skinny” Matt, Matt Murphy and Deadpool.

    deadpool

    Greetings! We are already in August. Time just seems to pass so quickly we need to get some important information to you.  We started August out at Boston Comic Con and then headed out to to Michigan for a toy soldier show.

    We have just added the latest King And Country and John Jenkins Designs to the website as well as some Old Britain’s and other recent finds from a collection we picked up. We also just picked up a few hundred high quality figure kits (54mm, 75mm, Busts, metal, resin and more). Check out are ebay auctions or stop by the store.

    We are still dealing with our water damage but we have the store put back in order for the most part. Hopefully we will get the ceiling put back together soon.

    Also this month we will be holding our 6th Annual Historical Game’s Day on Saturday the 29th. Come on by and enjoy the day. More info at www.bostontrainedbands.com

    King and Country June 2015 releases
    (June 03, 2015)

    King and Country June 2015 DISPATCHES

    JUNE 2015

            Here’s the “skinny” on this month’s releases.

     

    1.      APPEARING IN JUNE!

    A.     “BERLIN FALLS...HITLER ALIVE!”

    Just imagine, for a minute, Adolf Hitler did not die in his bunker amid the ruins of Berlin in 1945.

    What if...he had been captured alive by the Russians. What would he have looked like..?

    That was the unique little scenario we conjured up when we decided to make a special complimentary gift figure for all those K&C collectors attending our “Saturday Night Symposium” at the very recent9th Texas Toy Soldier Show.

    In the past when K&C has produced a small, specialized ‘run’ of figures like this some have ended up on ebay or elsewhere with very high prices attached!  This year we wanted to be able to offer other dealers and collectors who cannot attend the event the opportunity to purchase the “Show Figure” at a regular price.  So, we’ve made a few extras which will be available on a“first come-first served” basis.

     

    LAH195            “Hitler Lives!”

    As above, the now defeated Führer stands bruised, battered and dishevelled amidst the ruins of his “Thousand-Year Reich”.

     

    AVAILALBLE:    Early June

     

     

    B.      “KING ARTHUR & HIS KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE”

    With the story of King Arthur, his Knights and that very famous “Round Table” it’s exceedingly hard to separate mystery, myth and legend from the few known facts that are available.

    So, K&C has carefully picked through all of this information and selected what we think is a fair and balanced representation of one of the most famous stories in British history.  Collectors can decide for themselves whether we’ve succeeded in capturing the spirit and essence of these legendary figures from the Age of Chivalry...

    This release comprises the first three knights and King Arthur himself...the magnificent table and the King’s chair as well asa set of 11 individual chairs that surround the table.

     

    MK137             “King Arthur”

    Arthur was a legendary British leader of the late 5th and early 6th Centuries whose exploits are recorded in several medieval histories and romances.  In more recent times his story and legend has been moved up several hundred years and his appearance (and that of his Knights) is portrayed as much more typical of the 12th and 13th Centuries.

    Even in the 21st Century Arthur’s legend burns brightly thanks to theatre...film...television and books of all descriptions.

    Our King Arthur stands proudly...sword in one hand pointing to the centre, his crowned helmet in his other hand and a fierce but fair expression on his bearded face.

     

    MK138             “Sir Galahad”

                                     One account has him as the son of Sir Lancelot...another has him as the younger brother of the same Knight.  Suffice to say he was one of the bravest of the Round Table and was one of the three Knights specially selected to undertake the “Quest for the Holy Grail”.

     

    MK139             “Mordred”

                                     The “Black Sheep” or should that be “Black Knight” of the Round Table...Said to be the illegitimate son of Arthur and a traitor in his midst.  He was later to declare open rebellion against his father and would be killed at the Battle of Camlann where Arthur himself was also fatally injured.

     

    MK140             “Sir Lancelot”

                                     One of the most famous of the Knights and a great friend to the King...Alas however his love affair with Arthur’s Queen Guinevere ultimately brought about the end of the Kingdom and the destruction of the Round Table!

     

    MK143             “The Round Table & The King’s Chair”

                                     A superb reconstruction in miniature of the“Winchester Round Table” which can still be seen hanging in Winchester Great Hall in England.  This magnificent design bears the names of various Knights of Arthur’s court and was probably painted for a tournament in the time of Henry VIII (1491-1547).  The original wooden table itself has been dated much earlier to the reign ofEdward I (1239-1307) who was a great enthusiast of the Arthurian legends.

                                     Accompanying the Round Table is the King’s Chair, a wooden construction on which the King...and only the King...could sit.

     

    MK144             “The Knights’ Chair Set”

                                     A set of 11 identical chair/stools that are positioned behind each knight as he stands at the table.

     

    AVAILALBLE:    Early to Mid-June

     

    SPECIAL NOTE:        Other Round Table characters will be released at regular intervals.

     

    C.      “FROM ROUND TABLES TO RED FLAGS!”

    As usual we like to take you on a little journey with each “DISPATCHES” and this one is no exception...

    From the lush green vales and valleys of medieval England to the bomb-shattered ruins of Berlin in April and May 1945...in one fell swoop.

     

    RA064              “Raising The Red Flag”

    A Soviet soldier has climbed atop one of the architectural features of theReichstag high above the rubble-covered streets of the German capital.

    His machine-pistol slung across his back he is handed up a red banner which he unfurls over the defeated city.

    This small set includes our soldier hero...the Red Flag...and, of course, the famous Reichstag plinth seen in many photos of the event.

     

    RA065              “Death to Fascists!”

                                     Down below in the streets of the city small pockets of German resistance are still being “flushed-out” even as the red flag flies overhead.  Here one Russian soldier leans over a dead enemy and takes a “potato-masher” stick grenade out of the German’s belt...Let’s hope it’s not booby-trapped.

     

    RA066              “Red Army Officer”      

                                     While most of the street fighting has died down this officer is taking no chances...He puts a fresh magazine into his pistol.

     

     

     

    RA067              “Pointing Russki”

                                     Clad in his“poncho” cape this Russian indicates an enemy position.

     

    RA068              “Red Army Rescue”

                                     Under fire this Soldier carries a badly wounded comrade out of danger.

     

    RA069              “Dead Russians”

                                     Two of the fallen who have made the ultimate sacrifice for “Mother Russia”

     

    RA070              “Victory At Last”

                                     These two figures are again based on the same series of photographs that inspired RA064 “Raising The Red Flag”and go well with that set or...on their own.

     

    AVAILABLE:      Early to Mid-June

     

    D.     “COMMANDOS ON THE FRONTLINE”

    From Berlin in its darkest hour in May 1945 to...another dark hour sometime in 1942/43 when British Commandos took part in raids up and down the Nazi occupied coastline of Western Europe...usually at night.

     

                     DD256             “Advancing Tommy Gunner”

    This corporal carrying the Thompson stealthily moves forward stalking an enemy sentry perhaps.

     

    DD257              “Crouching Officer w/Pistol”

                                     A junior subaltern, pistol in hand, observes an enemy position.

     

    DD258              “Dueling Pistols”

                                     Another great little fighting duo...A commando shoots the enemy soldier while grappling his opponent’s pistol into the air.

    DD259              “Major ‘Mad Jack’ Churchill”

                                     Jack Churchill (1906-1996) was no relation to the more famous Winston but shared the same spirit and thirst for danger and excitement.

                                     Originally commissioned into the British Army in 1926 he left the Army 10 years later before rejoining at the outbreak of war in 1939.  After the Fall of France in 1940 he joined the newly-formed “Commandos” and rose, by 1942 to be second-in-command of No.3 Commando...A brave and energetic officer he was also a certified military eccentric...playing the bagpipes...using a bow and arrow in combat...and carrying a basket hilted Scottish broadsword into battle!!!

                                     He finished the war as a Lieutenant Colonel and was awarded 2 x Distinguished Service Orders.  He finally retired from the army in 1959.

    Here we show him carrying his “Tommy Gun” in one hand...and his famous Scottish Broadsword in the other.

     

    DD260              “Sssh!”

                                     A single commando warns his mates to keep quiet as an enemy sentry approaches...

     

    DD261              “Oddball’s Tank”

                                     As many K&C collectors’ already know we love movies...especially WAR MOVIES!  So when we came to do our “GANG OF HEROES” mini-series we knew we had to do this particular Sherman.

                                     Well, here it is...Loudspeaker and all with our crazy but cool tank commander in the turret and a couple of his guys popping their heads out of the armoured hull...where are they going...who knows..?  But there better be a whole big bundle of gold bullion at the end of it!

     

    DD262              “WarDaddy”

                                     Here’s another Sherman tank commander that might prove useful...

     

    AVAILABLE:      Mid-June

     

    E.      “DIFFERENT WAR...DIFFERENT TIME”

    From France and Germany in 1944 and ’45 let’s jump back across the English Channel and back 300 years...to around 1645 with our latest“Pike & Musket” release.

     

                     PnM036          “English Civil War Cannon”

    An alternative version to the Parliamentary cannon released a few months back.

     

    PnM037           “Royalist Gunners Set A”

     

    PnM038           “Royalist Gunners Set B”

     

    AVAILABLE:      Mid-June

     

    F.       “AND NOW TO THE ALAMO”

    The K&C “Magic Carpet” is certainly putting in some extra mileage this month...With a hop, skip and a jump we’re now in San Antonio and that famous siege of the Alamo.

     

    RTA083             “Jim Bowie”

    The famous inventor of the knife and one of the Alamo’s most famous defenders was actually on his sick bed when the final battle took place...Even though weak Bowie puts on a brave face as he shoots one of his Mexican attackers...His famous knife lies at his side on the bed.

     

    RTA084             “Mexican Casualty”

                                     Bowie’s bullet finds its mark.

     

    RTA085             “Mexican Bayoneteer”

                                     This soldier rushes forward to impale the stricken Bowie and avenge his comrade’s death.

     

    AVAILABLE:      Mid-June

     

    G.     WEHRMACHT ENGINEERS

    Many years ago K&C produced a little set of German Army engineers that proved very popular and are much sought-after on the secondary market.  So, we surmised maybe it’s about time we did some more...Here they are...

     

    WH024             “Standing Engineer”

    Shovel in one hand and dressed in the off-white “fatigue duties” trousers this soldier is awaiting orders.

     

    WH025             “Engineer w/Pickaxe”

                                     This soldier with sleeves rolled up is ready for work.

     

    WH026             “Engineer w/Land Mines”

                                     Among all their other duties engineers were responsible for “sowing” mine fields.

    WH027             “Engineer w/Wheel Barrow”

                                     Moving soil fromPoint A...to Point B.

     

    WH028             “Engineer w/Drill”

                                     One more soldier hard at work breaking up concrete.

     

    WH029             “Kneeling Engineer”

                                     This soldier using protective gloves is affixing barbed wire to a Mine Field “Warning” sign.

     

    WH030             “Beach Obstacles”

                                     These beach obstacles, sometimes known as “Czech Hedgehogs”, were scattered in their thousands all along the beaches and bays of occupied Europe.  Using old steel railway lines they were welded together and could rip the bottom out of any landing craft unfortunate enough to run over them at high tide.  This set contains 3 pieces.

     

    AVAILABLE:      Mid-June

     

    H.     “        DESERT DAIMLER ANYONE..?”

    I’m not quite sure how this one sneaked in to this month’s “DISPATCHES’ but here it is anyway...

     

    EA093               “Daimler Mk.2 Armoured Car”

    The Daimler Armoured Car was one of the most successful British armoured car designs of the Second World War.  Originally designed for ‘scouting and liaison work’ it proved its use time and time again in all kinds of hostile environments and situations from the early 1940’s well into the late 1950’s.

    Armed with a 2 pounder main gun and a 7.92mm Besa machine gun the Daimler saw plenty of action from North Africa to Northern Europe between 1941 and 1945.

    Our model is in typical 8th Army desert colours and in the markings of the famous 7th Armoured DivisionThe Desert Rats” and comes with a vehicle commander figure.

     

    SPECIAL NOTE:A European Theatre of Operations Daimler will be released later in the year.

     

    AVAILABLE:      This “Desert” version will come in Late June.

     

    I.        “BARBED WIRE”

    SP069              “BARBED WIRE”

    A roll or two of barbed wire always looks good on any miniature battlefield.     

     

     

    J.        “TIN PLATE WARRIOR”

    The second of our tinplate trucks is now rolling off the production line.

     

                     TP002              “The Opel ‘BLITZ’ Truck”

    A very familiar sight in any German vehicle convoy during WW2.  Between 1939 and 1945 many thousands of these trucks served all of the German Armed Forces.  The 3-ton version was the most numerous.  Although K&C produced a polystone and metal model some years back this is our first all-metal “BLITZ”.  Painted in traditional fieldgrey the open back allows for soldiers or supplies to be put into the vehicles.

     

    AVAILABLE:    Late June

    More May News!
    (May 21, 2015)

    I could not think of a better set to feature on Memorial Day weekend!

           I am currently wrapping up a few loose ends here as I prepare to head off to San Antonio this weekend for the Texas Toy Soldier Show. We would also like you all to remember Monday is Memorial Day. We will be open from 10AM-4PM.  We hope to see many of you at the Texas show this weekend and we hope all of you find the time to remember our fallen soldiers who died in defense of our great country as you relax with friends and family.

    My son and I had a great time at the Huzzah Convention in Maine this past weekend.  Here is a few pictures from the Con. My son is below patiently waiting for Mike Paine’s ruling on his Hanghai Raiders game (always a kid favorite).

    May News
    (May 15, 2015)

    Well it is May 15,  I am sure something important in history happened today. If not it will be this newsletter (ha ha). The show season is in full swing. We are headed up to Huzzah in Portland, ME this weekend. Come and check out this great New England gaming convention.

    Includes miniature games, board games, tournaments, vendors, raffle, and great company.  We also have some exciting gaming events at the Bunker coming up. Including the Heroclix State Tourney in June and the next Magic the Gathering pre-release scheduled for July.

    We just got back from the MFCA show in Valley Forge, PA.. The attendance seemed to be about the same as the last couple of years. We want to thank all of you who attended. Overall it was a nice trip. We hit Rein’s Deli (exit 65 on rte. 84) on the way down and the Blue Colony Diner in Newtown, CT (exit 10 on 84) on the way back (these our 2 of our usual and well recommended spots). Sales were good, socializing was fun.  I meet a few new collectors, chatted with all the familiar faces and met some of our forum members for the first time. Had a beer with Dave Youngquist and Doug Derth on Friday night (both from MI) and then we headed up to the MFCA hospitality suite for some drinks and a social hour. We left the venue a little after 6PM and got home around 1AM.  Below are is a picture of our booth and a great diorama built by one of our customers.

The snow is still about 18" deep in spots in my backyard and I can see most of my front yard hopefully the flowers will eventually find their way. We have just finish our whirlwind tour of shows for March. We wrapped up the month with a trip to HAVOC (Shrewsbury, MA) and Wings and Wheels (Chicopee, MA) and now we are gearing up for our local toy soldier show (thankfully the only one of the month). But May is shaping up to be show packed. We have the MFCA show the first weekend, then Huzzah in ME, followed by the Texas Show and then finishing up in VA on 5/30.  Fun fun!

    March News....
    (March 12, 2015)

    We are just back from the West Coaster (CA) and Cold Wars Game Con (PA) and are sifting through merchandise and emails! The Snow is starting to melt and parking in front of the shop is improving. This weekend we are heading to the New Jersey Toy Soldier Show in Edison. The end of the Month we have the HAVOC Gaming Convention(Shrewsbury) and the "Wings & Wheels" Model show in Chicopee, MA. Let us know if you want anything brought to you specifically for these shows.

        
         The Annandale, VA toy soldier show a couple of weeks ago was fun except for the 12 hour drive home in snow and sleet. It should have been about 7.5 hours of driving. I only made to central NJ and had to call it a night.  
         Massive Car Model Collection! We have begun stocking the shop and listing the rare cars on ebay. Stop by or check out our auctions.

    More Feb. News!
    (February 20, 2015)

         Well if you haven't noticed we've had a little snow up here in Boston. We would like to thank all of you that have braved the snow, traffic, parking nightmare and "T" closures to visit us. The City told us that all the snow in Malden Square will be removed next week, this will ease the parking crisis. Currently the garage is only open to monthly parkers.
         This weekend I plan on being in Annandale, VA for Toy soldier show. Let me know ASAP if you want anything brought to the show. With a little luck I will get down there and back and dodge this weeks storms.
         Massive Car Model Collection! We expect to be picking up over 300 car models next week so stay tuned!

    More January Things to know!
    (January 28, 2015)

     We hope everyone is staying warm this winter. So far we have been pretty lucky as far as snow storms go(shouldn’t have opened my big mouth yet). Speaking of winter, the above photo shows another great diorama by Alex Credidio. He is using mostly King & Country Battle of the Bulge figures and a Collector’s Showcase Sherman tank. We have updated the Spring Events “show list” so check it out to see if we will be in your area.

         The gaming area was packed this past weekend with a group of historical gamers, about 15 Magic players for the Pre-release and nearly 20 guys for the Warmachine Tournament plus a few other pick up games. We will have the new Magic the Gathering release(Fate Reforged) in stock for Friday’s sale date along with the new D&D Attack Wing wave, plus many other new games and re-stocks have arrived. We also got a huge restock from Warlord Games including many new items along with a few hundred new Osprey books This week on the hobby front we received a great selection of “Gundam” paint Markers, New Sci-fi and Super Hero kits from Moebius and AM, New 1/35 Scale WWII kits as well as nice re-stock of most of our paint lines. So what are we saying? We have created a hobby Mecca in the heart of Malden so come down and grab a shopping basket!   New Thomas Gunn Miniatures and John Jenkins Designs toy soldiers were recently added to our site as well as a bunch of plastic figures to the -Rare & Retired and “Russian made Toys” sections.
    Congrats to the Patriots! ”Deflated” balls won’t steer me away!

    As always any feedback of ways we can improve are always welcomed.

    (May 22, 2014)

As far as gaming is concerned we just received all the new May releases from Warlord Games as well as a couple new releases from the Plastic Soldier Co. Also in gaming we will have the new Warhammer 40K rule book for sale this Friday and the WizKids Heroclix Dead Pool packs are in.  We have also received a pretty good re-stock of Osprey Books in the shop along with many of the newer titles. Magazines! We finally revamped some of the toy soldier Magazines and listed them on the website. we also just picked up a collection of 1/35 Scale WWII models and resin kits.
           My father and a helper left for the 1800 mile trip to San Antonio earlier this week. Sadly I was unable to attend the show but on the bright side since we drove we will have a lot more to see at the show! The Huzzah con in ME was a blast. The show was well attended and sales were brisk. I brought my family up and my 7 year old had a complete melt down as we took him away from his wargame on Sunday morning to take in the sites of downtown Portland.

    May News
    (May 17, 2014)

          Already Mid-May! We are in the middle of our last hectic month of shows. I am looking forward to catching up in June with an entire month of no shows (no packing, unpacking, sorting and driving)! I guess I will actually have some time to play with my own toys and paint some thinks I have been meaning to work on. Next up is Huzzah in S. Portland, ME this coming weekend. The MFCA show in Valley Forge was a nice surprise. The foot traffic seemed to be a little down but the buying (at least at my booth) was great. We took of a nice variety of newer items, regular stock and a bunch of odds and ends from collections. Thank you to all who attended. The models on display were fantastic, there were modellers and painters from all over the world.

    King and Country May 2014 Dispatch
    (May 01, 2014)

    MAY 2014

     

            A couple of months ago I was getting ready to fly over to Los Angeles for the Annual West Coaster Show…Well today, as I write this, I’m preparing to head out again in just a few weeks’ time to the States but this time the destination is San Antonio for this year’s TEXAS TOY SOLDIER SHOW.

            As anyone who reads these “DISPATCHES” knows King & Country and yours truly are big “believers” in and supporters of Toy Soldier Shows all over the world.

            I’m fortunate to get to meet many of our collectors and also get to catch up with any of our K&C dealers who take part.

            This particular “TEXAS” show is being held over two whole days (Saturday and Sunday) during Memorial Day Weekend and is the third thatK&C and KINGS X have put on together and we hope will be the best one yet!

            However, as usual, there’s a whole bunch of new items to review and release…So here goes…

     

    1.      Ancient Greek Alternative Additions

    A.      When we first released this series more than a few collectors suggested that they wanted to “build-up” multiples of many of the releases…and they requested alternative colour schemes and shield designs.  Here they are…

     

    AG026       “Standing Hoplite”

     

    AG027       “Hoplite On Guard”

     

    AG028       “Hoplite Officer w/Sword”

     

    AG029       “Hoplite Soldier w/Sword”

     

    AG030       “Hoplite w/Long Spear” (Horizontal)

     

    AG031       “Hoplite w/Long Spear” ( 45‚ąė)

     

    AG032       “Hoplite w/Long Spear” (Vertical)

     

    Available:         Early May

     

    B.      “VIVE LES VOLTIGEURS!”

    VOLTIGEURSplayed an important role in Napoleon’s Army.  He decreed that each Infantry Line and Light Infantry Regiment should select their finest marksmen and most agile soldiers and form them into special units that would provide one company in each battalion.

    These troops would act as “skirmishers” and “scouts” to help protect the main body as well as moving forward in loose order to be the “eyes and ears” of their commanders.

    Tenall-new K&C “Voltigeurs” advance forward in “action” poses to get to grips with the enemy.

     

    Special Uniform Note:     Although wearing the same basic French Infantry uniform of the period Voltigeurs could be distinguished by their green and yellow epaulettes and collars as well as their black shako with the yellow stripe.

     

    NA273      “Mounted French V Officer Shouting

     

    NA274      Fr. V Flagbearer Advancing

     

    NA275      Fr. V Charging Port Arms

     

    NA276      Fr. V Trumpeter

    This voltigeur is carrying the hunting horn and wears the lighter blue uniform

     

    NA277      Fr. V Advancing Firing

     

    NA278      Fr. V Kneeling Firing

     

    NA279      Fr. V Advancing Loading

     

    NA280      Fr. V Charging with Bayonet

     

    NA281      Fr. V Advancing with Rifle Up

     

    NA282      “Fr. V. Advancing Pointing”

    AVAILABLE:      Mid May

     

    C.      “FROM NAPOLEONIC FRANCE TO WW2 FRANCE!”

    With the 70th Anniversary of D.DAY coming up in June we thought we would add a few extra pieces to collectors’ D.Day Collections.

     

    DD224      “M3A3 Stuart”

             The M3A3 served alongside the M5 in the “scouting and screening role” in most U.S. Army tank battalions.  Usually these battalions comprised 3 x companies of “Shermans” and 1 x company of “Stuarts”.

             Our model is typical of those that took part in post D.Day operations.

     

    DD228      “U.S. Army Tank Riders Set #1”

             Two kneeling GI’s, one with an “M1 Garand”, the other with the “M1 Carbinecan work equally well on the back of a fighting vehicle or on the ground.

     

    DD229      “U.S. Army Tank Riders Set #2”

             Two more GI’s, one kneeling, one sitting, armed with another “M1 Garand” and a “Browning Automatic Rifle”.  As flexible as the previous two.

     

    AVAILABLE:      Mid to Late May

     

    D.     THE RAF’s ONLY FIGHTER PILOT V.C.

    During the Second World War Royal Air Force pilots and other aircrew won a number ofVictoria Crosses, Britain’s highest military honor.

    Most of those awarded went to men from RAFBomber Command”…Just one, surprisingly enough, was presented toRAF “Fighter Command” – to Flight Lieutenant James Nicolson.

     

    RAF067(SL)      “Hawker Hurricane GNA”

             Last month we produced a new version of the Supermarine “Spitfire”.  This month we are honoring the other great fighter aircraft that won the“Battle of Britain”…theHawker “Hurricane – and a very special Hurricane at that!

            

    Flight Lieutant James Nicolsonwas a pilot with No.249 Squadron when on August 16, 1940 he was flying “GNA” on an operational sortie near Southampton when he was fired on by a Messerschmitt Bf.110.  Enemy fire injured him in one eye and badly wounded his left foot.  At the same time his engine was hit and the petrol tank set alight.  As he struggled to bail out from the burning aircraft another Bf.110 flew in front of him…Struggling to get back into his blazing Hurricane he pressed the gun button and saw his bullets strike the German plane.  After seeing the enemy aircraft crash into the ground, Nicolson successfully bailed out.

            On his descent, painfully injured, he had the bad luck to be fired on by members of the “Home Guard”,…fortunately their accuracy was not as good as the young Flight Lieutenant’s!

             On November 15, 1940, it was announced that Flt.Lt. Nicolson had been awarded the Victoria Cross for “Conspicuous gallantry and disregard for his own life”.

             He was later promoted and sent out to fly in both India and Burma.  By May 1945 he was now a Wing Commander but alas lost his life in a flying accident in the Bay of Bengal.  His Victoria Cross can be seen at theRoyal Air Force Museum, Hendon, England.

             Our 1:30 scale Hawker Hurricane “GNA” comes with an unoccupied cockpit and a standing figure ofFlight Lieutenant Nicolson.  A specially-designed, full colour box also includes a certificate about James Nicolson V.C.

             This “SL” edition comprises just 300 aircraft and figures.

     

    AVAILABLE:      Mid to Late May            

     

    E.      “ON A FRENCH STREET…”

    From the skies above Southern England to the streets of a Normandy village…

     

    SP056       “La Cremerie”

             Another addition to our beautiful series of French building facades…”La Cremerie” is a typical 1940’s style family-owned and operated little shop selling all kinds dairy products such as cream, butter, milk and, of course, a wide variety of excellent French cheeses!

             Despite some minor battle damage the store is still “open for business”.

     

    AVAILABLE:      Mid to Late May.

     

    F.       “WATCH OUT FOR THE PROWLING PANTHER!”

    Over the years, KING & COUNTRY has produced quite a number of different “Panthers”…Next to the “Tiger” it’s probably our most-produced German tank!

    Originally designated as the Panzerkampfwagen V it soon became better known as “The Panther” to friend and foe alike.  With this tank the Germans finally had a fighting vehicle that could counter the Soviet T34.  The Panther copied, adapted and improved many of the characteristics of its Russian opponent.  It proved to be an excellent combination of firepower, mobility, a wider track and good armour protection.  From 1943 until 1945 just over 6,700 of all variants were produced.

     

    WS272      “Panther Ausf.G”

    The “Ausf.G” version was reckoned, by most Panther crews, to be the best of all and the new K&C “Ausf.G.” is certainly the best we have manufactured!

    Our model represents a late-war, battle-weary, two–colour camouflaged “G” and comes with a tank Commander and plenty of space for either extra supplies or a number of tank riders.

    This is the first of two “G” models to be released…a second will be available later in the year.

     

    WS286      “Pointing Officer”

               Armed with an MP40 “Schmeisser” machine pistol this officer points out a possible enemy position.  This figure can stand easily on both a fighting vehicle or on the ground…The choice is yours…

     

     WS287     “Kneeling Loading”

     

      WS288     “Kneeling Grenadier”

     

      WS289     “Kneeling w/Rifle”

     

      WS290     “Kneeling w/Binos”

     

    Note:         All of the above figures can be utilized in or on vehicles as well as on the ground in action.

     

    AVAILABLE:      Mid to Late May
