French Foreign Legion

I was lucky enough to find a box of the ESCI French Foreign Legion in 1:72. The box was old, creased and a bit yellowed but the box art isn't faded. A plus for me since I dig good box illustrations :)

These figures have been elusive for me since I had refrained from buying them when I was a kid since they didn't fit in the WW2 genre that was - in my mind - more popular. That is, until I got interested in 19th century adventure stories, especially with the aura of mystique that shrouded the French Foreign Legion.

Beau geste, anyone?

I was hooked! Sadly though, this set had vanished from local stores until recently when a collector decided to unload his set.

More on these fellows soon!
