PostSubject: Vintage plastic animal haul ..............   Sun 24 Feb 2013, 13:11

Recently I have had a few days holiday and what better way of spending one of those days than to find:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], on Flickr

Key:

White horse by Matchbox for their King Size K18 Dodge Kew Fargo Articulated Horse Transporter introduced in 1966. Four horses were included in two different poses.

Cat group by Timpo, reference number 1090, from the mid 1950's.

Piglet is by Britains Herald, reference number H1567, and has the "Herald" symbol on the belly introduced in1956.

Pig by Timpo - reference number unknown.

Howling wolf with front leg tucked under body is by Timpo, reference number 6022, from the mid 1950's.

Two fighting bulls are by Corgi Toys and one was included with their Lamborghini Miura from the late 1960's.

In the background is a Hong Kong copy of Britains Sable Antelope. This would date from the 1960's.

BTW I obtained all of these for the princely sum of £1! How am I going to live for the rest of the month? Laughing

Thank you Andreas. Matchbox did this horse pose in two different sizes. One size was for the King Size Horse trailer and the other size found their way into either an AEC Horse transporter or a Pony Trailer in the Matchbox 1-75 series.

The fighting bulls are fantastic poses and these were made in Hong Kong for Corgi Toys.

As for the wolf I agree it is a great pose but ...... it is hard to make it stand correctly and a slight knock of the table and it tumbles over! affraid

Thank you Susanne. Very Happy

I had a feeling I would be lucky when I began to sort though the tray of animals on the stall. When I found the Corgi Toys fighting bull I knew it was a golden vein! :)

Chris, I really hope you can find a way to live the rest of the month after such an investment. Very Happy
Congratulations for finding these great figures. I love specially fighting bulls, they have a lot of action and it is not surprising that they were made with a Lamorghini once, as you know, their symbol is a bull. Very Happy
Maybe someday you can find a horse with a Ferrari, a lion with a Peugeot, an elephant with a Bugatti Royale or a Jaguar with a Jaguar! Very Happy

Thank you Scott - I now have three of these bulls. The first was with a Corgi Toys Lamborghini Miura set. Never thought I be able to obtain these bulls without buying the toy car! Very Happy

Thank you Christophe. Did you have to buy the Corgi Lamborghini to get the bull? I am so glad that I was able to provide you with your madeleine de Proust moment. I have to admit I had to look this term up.

Makes for an expensive bull Scott. affraid

This is the set I bought around thirty years ago for about £10! The box is the first issue one and hard to find nowadays.

I guess I got a bargain because each bull cost me 8p 12.5p! Laughing

I can't remember that Lamborghini... I was not car toys oriented Wink

For the madeleine de Proust, I couldn't find an English equivalent Embarassed

It is not often than we see Crescent figures! They are great! Very Happy
It is also good to know that there is always a reason to be headless! Wink

Ex lead mould - means the model was first issued in hollow-cast-lead. Britains then used this mould to make the plastic version.

Thank you Roger.

I need the base of the keeper for a version from the Chimps tea party set. The dealer gave me a cut price if I let him have the head back.
