Toy Soldier Saturday: REL Cowboys

I think this Rel outfit put most of their efforts into making dollhouses and dollhouse furniture and dollhouse people, but they took time out to make some odd-looking cowboys too. These guys were made in both hard (as shown) and soft plastic.

This guy, who belongs on a stage coach or wagon seat, is about halfway between hard and soft, and seems to be made of some sort of resin. I'll introduce you to some odd-looking Rel redskins sometime soon.

They are odd-looking. Kids probably like the soft plastic version.

Rel was the worst. The guns those bandits are pointing look like milk bottles. All of their riding poses had monstrously bowed legs and the men had their hands in their crotches. And yet, I had them when I was a kid.
