Hello!

My wife was going through our old things and found unopened Del Prado figures. There are quite more than I remembered. I don't need them. They are from all different genres. Do gamers still use these as they look quite old but all unopened brand new just forgotten little detailed soldiers.

Please if anyone knows about them I would be grateful for advice as I have looked online and they seem to be more popular in the USA 🇺🇸 than Britain unless I am mistaken.

Kind regards

I have a few, mostly gifts from a friend, that I display, but don't use. These are the larger 54mm figures. Most require significant repainting, as they are fairly simply done to begin with. That being said I do like the look of them and they end up making a nice display.

Hello David.

Thank you for your reply.

From the look of them they are in perfect condition, unopened and quite impressive. So they are best for a display ornament? I am just not familiar with these and it was a surprise to find them. Do you think anyone would want them? I am quite happy to sell them all. I have no idea of the value of them.

Kind regards,


Klaus

They are about 60mm or so. You can game with them, or supplement 54mm plastics with them. They don't have much resale value. The last couple I picked up I bought for $5 USD apiece.

Thank you 79thPA.

I think they are some type of heavy metal! 😂

They are wonderful I want to keep them but Mrs BossyBoots has put the lot on EBay now which upset me. She will probably list me for sale next knowing her.

But if anyone knows what type of metal they are made from I would be grateful as they are quite heavy (like my wife). Could they possibly be lead?

Kindest regards,


Klaus

Perhaps you should list her on eBay too.

I hear others have done it, and it is surprising the amount of money people will offer for wives, girlfriends, and significant others.

Might be able to buy some more Del Prados…….

While they are pretty nice figures (well the one's I have are) they go fairly cheap. I picked up 6 mounted in a German flea market in Stuttgart for about $30.00 USD. I felt I got a great deal, also. Might be interested, Klaus, to maybe add to the collection wit pics.

Thresher01 sounds like a jolly good idea!

I'm trying to sell them or gift them not get more as I have no use for them. Even though they are old, style and probably quite rare. But listing my wife does sound like fun. *evil cackle*

Best regards,


Klaus

Dye4minis,

Thank you for your reply. They are on EBay which can be combined shipping to the USA. But my wife took the photos which are not the best. But I can take them off EBay if you like some of them.

If you would like a link or list or photos you are most welcome. I really do like them but so just have no use for them sadly. Mrs BossyBoots has given me orders! You can name your price for the ones you like.

I don't know how to upload photos as replies but I could always upload on a different post unless that breaches TMP regulations.

Kind regards,


Klaus

Here is a link to one of them. The photos do not do these justice. If anyone would like them at a lower price you are most welcome. Sad to let them go but there are more miniatures I would like. If this breaches TMP policy my apologies to all. There are many more on my EBay but I can take them down and combined shipping to other countries is of course possible.

Kindest regards,
