The news and picture of Barszo's new Rev War figure seem to be generating some discussion out there so of course we thought we would add our "Thoughts". I love the Rev War period and F & I but sadly like so many I do not study the uniforms that closely. The barrel band thingee would have gotten pass me and I will no doubt add them to my F & I items. I guess I fall into the group that feels if it is red it is OK. Oh the shame. But that is just me. On the other hand if a ACW soldier is dangled in front of my I go on the offensive!.

The bottom line I guess is enjoy them. However if you notice something that bothers you it is fine to mention it especially if you get the chance too BEFORE the figure has gone into production. After all we all have different tastes and personalities.

Photo of Ron Barszo New Figure

I stole this. I love AWI but not so much his figures as the scale is usually too Small or too big and they tend to break. I am told or read that this pose will be released in Plastic ? Oh well enjoy

Still more on Scale

Ok so scale as you know is a big thing to me. Why the others IMHO cant get it right but CTS seems to. I think it is the base. Others all seem to use large built up bases whereas CTS uses more of a flat base that like Imex, Marx, and Accurate. CTS figures may be still be large but the absence of the built up base makes then less looking like hulking giants. I hope CTS continues this practice.

Sock Puppet

A. A fun toy
B. A sockpupppet is an online identity used for purposes of deception. The term—a reference to the manipulation of a simple hand puppet made from a sock—originally referred to a false identity assumed by a member of an internet community who spoke to, or about himself while pretending to be another person.[1] The term now includes other uses of misleading online identities, such as those created to praise, defend or support a third party or organization.[2] A significant difference between the use of a pseudonym[3] and the creation of a sockpuppet is that the sockpuppet poses as an independent third-party unaffiliated with the puppeteer.

On suggestion of friends IMEX has been called (not by us) and they are in Business. As to what degree we didnt ask. They seemed very upset that a discussion group had posted they were out of business. Oh well. We are told the site printed a retraction.

We are hearing reports that IMEX model company is no more. Imex had some fine ACW figures as well as the molds for Accurate figures. We are further informed that an EBAY seller has them in bags labeled Vinny Toys ?? or IMEX Billy ?

The Battle's End......

Farewell, Mother, you may never
Press me to your heart again;
But, oh, you'll not forget me, Mother,
If I'm numbered with the slain.

Here are a couple of REAL Super Bowls!!!
