This was a popular theme in the UK during the 1950s/'60s, no doubt because of the TV series starring Richard Greene (I'll try to find a youtube clip), so I'll start with the Britains/Herald set, complete with original promotional leaflet. They were made 1956-62, plus there was a new Robin Hood set in the 1990s. The two boxed sets fetch horrendous prices (sometimes well over UK£1000 for the big set ) when they appear for auction on eBay or at specialist 'real life' toy auctions, and even unboxed figures regularly change hands for high prices for plastic figures, such as about UK£30 or so for a good condition mounted Sheriff of Nottingham.
