Toy Mormons!

It's either several nice readers or one reader with two "handles" on two other internet sites, BUT, I've gotten several tips (Thanks!) on a toy Mormon figures. Of interest is the Mormon Hand Cart set with figures close in size to 54 mm and mid 19th century clothing.

They haven't got to UTAH yet and already there are 4 kids. (Just one wife so far.)

Other figures include heroes and villains from the BOOK OF MORMON in a 3 " size.

What child doesn't want to play with Moroni and Joseph Smith action figures?

The series has action Mormon missionaries.

The Mormon missionaries I met 20 years ago were two women. One very "handsome" and the other a little too intense. Nice ladies. Mormons don't ask for money and they give you a free book of Mormon so I enjoyed talking to them.

 There is a Pewter version of "sister missionaries." This may be the "intense" one...

 This figure may be the "handsome" one...

You can get Mormon figures and toys from Latter Day Designs

New Ray Amish

I got the tip from this gent....

The Toy Soldier Depot in Maryland has the figure set. The set has potential for Civil War civilians but the women's clothing suggests the 17th Century. We shall see.

Maybe some slight "Green Stuff" work and a mono chrome paint job.

"Pantomime" General George Pickett

A quick conversion of an Armies In Plastic figure to General George Pickett...

I need a General Pickett for some future entries. Stephen Lang's movie Pickett was fun ...

Mr. Lang just didn't play him "oily" enough. As Jack Deth in The Trancers said: "Dry hair is for Squids!"
