The Saga of the Tree Rocks

It was just a pile of rocks but the pterosaurs gathered there.

Giant flying reptiles.

They would squabble over the best perch.

And swoop in low over the ground.

Until man came.

And he would perch on the rocks.

African Figures

The wall in the back is made out of logs tied together, they are actually supposed to be used as rafts.

The figures have a spear, a shield, a club and a pole for the rafts. 

There is also a rifle and a pith helmet.  The rifle here has had the sling broken off.

Even with only three poses the placement of the weapons and shields can make for a pretty good variety.

The guy in Western attire is designed to hold the rifle as the hunter, but he can hold a spear as well.

The sling allows this guy to act as a gun bearer.

MPC made African people in both ring hand and regular toy soldier versions.

This is the ring hand version.

As far as I know there are only three poses.

One in Western style clothing.

One with arms down.

And as you can see in the center rear, one with one arm up and one arm down.

Arctic Exploration

A nice Matchbox arctic vehicle.

I like these kinds of vehicles.

It works well as a civilian research vehicle, NGO vehicle, or military.

It comes in white and I will add it to my small cadre of Arctic exploration vehicles.

Much of the USA and Europe is covered in snow, even in summer so this can be used in a lot of places.

It fits in nicely with these Zvezda Cold War gone Hot troops.

These are US Army but I could see other forces using this vehicle.
