When I posted the first batch of these guys a couple of weeks ago (HERE), I said they made their debut in 1957. The Right Reverend Cap'n Bob Napier differed, saying they didn't show up until 1967. Sadly, he's probably right. If so, it means I never saw these guys as a kid, and Louis Marx perpetrated a ten-year fraud on us gullible snotnoses by manning their Fort Apache playsets with recycled Alamo defenders (you'll find those HERE) instead of cavarlymen. Shame on us both.
More Toy Soldiers HERE.
