Is there for a colonial game, a 28/30 mm figurine representing johnny weissmuller as tarzan and some of the other characters that can be seen in the 12 films where johnny weissmuller embodies tarzan?

The Foundry Tarzan looks more like Christopher Lambert and the Disney version than Johnny Weissmuller.

I think this figure from Pulp is the only one I've seen without long hair. Most are based on the traditional image of Tarzan.

Here's the Ral Partha Jungle Lord I remember from the late 90s, also with cropped hair:

The Ral Partha Jungle lord was always my favorite.

It was a after the true 25mm of their historic lines, so it fits well with other 25/28mm figures.

There is no Johnny weissmuller with foundry and for that of Ral Partha, this product was added to our catalog on Sunday November 27, 2011.

Yet there must be no problem of legal rights now ,So why does not persnne take back the true, the unique Tarzan ?

No other ideas?

Ron Ely with Airfix ? Too small LOL

Johnny Weissmuller taught me how to swim and worked for my Dad selling boats in the 1960s in Fort Lauderdale . He was an incredible person ! Ironically I just recently moved to Ocala ,Florida where the Tarzan shows where all filmed in Ocala National Forest !
