Summary of 2007

We, all-in-all I had 90 posts with 392 comments this past year. On average that's a post about every four days, with about 4 1/3 comments per post . . . not bad, I'd say.

Have a great New Year!

Stokes,

Thanks for that reply. I've deleted it so that your phone number is hidden.

It does seem that our ISPs are not talking to each other, doesn't it?

Now I understand why you didn't reply to my question about some plastic figures back in early November.

I'll hope to remember to call on Saturday. Thanks for your response. And please let me know if your plans change.

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for your reply and removing my number. As for the plastic figures, three possible avenues come to mind:

1)Try the Trading Department Yahoo Group, which focuses on trading plastic figures. It's fairly new, but pretty active from what I've observed. See their address below. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TradingDepartment/

2) Visit Plastic Soldier review online at: http://plasticsoldierreview.com/

Then, look at the retailer links from around the world and contact a few of them about what you're seeking specifically. I gt lots of help from Russian, German, and Danish hobby retailers when I was tracking down all of those Revell figures a couple of years ago. You never know what might turn up.

3) Ebay, although I generally avoid the auctioned items simply because I'm inevitably outbid at the last moment and it's frustrating. BUT, lots of plastic items, soldiers and otherwise, turn up there, and many are simply for sale without the headache of bidding in an online auction. Again, you never know what you might find and at a steal.

Hope these suggestions might at least get you started.

Best Regards,

Stokes

Jeff,

Check out either Classic Toy Solders at:http://www.classictoysoldiers.com/

or epartyunlimted.com at:
http://www.epartyunlimited.com/cowboys-vs-indians-plastic-figures.html

You might be able to find something along the lines of what you're after .

Best Regards,

Stokes

Good Morning Jeff,

Here's another possible suggestion for some plastic cowboys:

http://www.angelfire.com/biz/toysoldierhq/Odd30mm.html

Look specifically at the information on wild west figures made by Spain's Novolinea. Nominally 30mm, and no longer in production, but if you feel like digging around a bit, you might turn up a set or two.

Best Regards,

Stokes
