Back in 2000-2005, 21st Century Toys made an awesome collection of WWII 1/18th scale figures, tanks, trucks, and planes. I managed to grab the Stuka, ME-109, P-51, Sherman and Panther. There was quite a bit more produced before the company went out of business. Wal-Mart and Toys-R-Us carried these wonderful toys. So every now and again I like to take down this collection and marvel at them before restoring them to their place on top of my library bookshelves.
I've got several of the 54mm guys in a box, I bought them for fun at teh various wall marts when they were available. Ones I got for 10-15$ are now going for 60-70$ at some businesses! Nice looking models
Wow...I didn't realize they had gone up in value so much. But with the company out of business, I guess that makes sense. Fun stuff!!
