Men Of Gondor

 
28mm Games Workshop Men of Gondor.  
A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down, but it is not this day. This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!

100 Toy Soldiers Comicbook Ad

As a kid, I've always wanted one of these "footlockers" with a hundred toy soldiers but I couldn't figure out how I could have possibly ordered one. At that time, the Peso-dollar conversion was US1 to PHP4 I think. The soldiers, tanks, jeeps, battleships, etc were flat, easily broke and were not of the same scales. Nevertheless, the nostalgia factor rates high for me. Nowadays, an incomplete set ells for around $30-$50. Here's what these figures look like:
