… that is, the 54mm "Pirates of Tortuga" figures by Cliff Sanderson, first released back in the late 70's/early 80's.

They came into the UK as imports and we have a sales list of 24 figures in the range from that time.

Today, John Eden produces them in the UK, and so does Fleurbaix in Australia. Each of these two offers figures which are not included in the old 24, but some of the old 24 are not being produced now by either maker.

Can anyone supply us with a complete list of this range?

Never seen or heard of them.

A link to pics would be nice, and appreciated.

"a little controversial in parts that range.."

Yes … we saw some of the models on display in military modelling shops.

I need to know how many figures comprised the complete range.

I remember when it came out..1976? and actually saw them, held some of them in the flesh and then the controversy began and was quite loud and they all seemed to disappear..can't remeber how many there were..

Cardinal Hawkwood02 Apr 2011 3:57 p.m. PST
