Toy Soldiers: TIM-MEE COWBOYS - Part 1

Tim-Mee Toys began making these 70mm cowboys in the late '50s, and near as I can tell, they're still making them. They also made Indians, GIs, Civil War soldiers, pirates, knights and others. Though not as detailed or realistic as the Marx figures, they had a certain charm. The sheriff figure above measures 3 3/4" from boots to hat. Looks a lot like Wyatt Earp, doesn't he?

Anybody else remember these?

The yellow one has it rocking.

Yes, my brothers had these. I think my mother made them quietly disappear after the dog developed an appetite for them.

Do I need to answer?
