Just reviewed the pics and my favorite is the mechanic with the big hammer kneeling over the beautiful alloy engine.
My imagination runs wild. Whooeeee! :lol:
Cheers and Happy Collecting,

I've posted these shots of TSM's mechanic figures before, but as they were about 3 years ago I'll take the liberty of re-posting them again here :

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

I just bought some figurines by Arttista. These are made from pewter.

They look much better out of their packaging.

Picnicers. I first photographed them with the 1994 Capri, but what with the transistor radio and all, these look more like 1960's folks, so I swapped of the Capri for the 1962 Mustang II

My first impression of the hitchhiker was – Bob Dylan. :)

I've recently been buying more figurines. I'm learning that there can be significant differences in the size of the figures depending on who makes them. :evil: I'm leery now of buying "O scale" as opposed to 1:43.

I just received a set of 1970's style mechanics in 1:43 from TSM. $27 for 6 figures was Ok...ish.

Unfortunately the guy on the right took a tumble from the top shelf of my display cabinet and is now headless. Hopefully the surgery to reattach it won't be too complicated.

Maybe Dr. Ben Carson (neurosurgeon & presidential candidate) could be of some use here. ;)

So true -- O-scale figures tend to be shorter than 1:43 figures, I accept both, but do have to draw the line at 1:50 scale figures as just too small.

Corgi Toys 1505 Garage AttendantsChris Sweetman

Finally an actual photo of the Corgi Toys 1505 Garage Attendants that were illustrated in the catalogue above. This group of figures was one of five sets introduced at the end of 1962. Designed to enhance play with Corgi Toys cars and kits. They were made in Hong Kong but the sculpting was done in-house at Corgi Toys in the UK. All sets were withdrawn at the end of 1969 and over 100,000 sets of 1505 were made.

The group illustrated here are later production because they are slightly larger than the original issues.
