I found some of these on clearance at a semi-local train store. They are prepainted when I see them in person, which is not good, but for a variety of figures it takes a multitude of sources. Website says you can buy unpainted.

They are made for trains which means lesser details in the figures so don't consider them perfect. But hey, clowns, fishers, nuns, fire fighters, cops and public officials figures are all there.

Hmmn, they look pretty good. Definitely better than the Plasticville or K-Line figures.

those are pretty amazing as far as selection goes !

What scale is "O" ? 1/48th? 1/56th?

Hlaven Supporting Member of TMP20 Jul 2019 8:20 a.m. PST

I would say 1/48 scale

Actually "O" scale is 1:43.5 – see TMP link

Very interesting collection. Just about everything you would need to populate a little town facing alien invaders or a zombie outbreak. A bit pricy -- zombie figure, for example, $7.45 USD painted, $4.75 USD not painted.

Large catalogue.

Chick, you say "as far as the selection goes." What is missing :) They have everything even Sasquatch ($same as zombie)

Painted in the US. $3.00 USD a figure. Wonder if we can find the painters for our figures.

Bob, you may have misread. I wrote "As far as selection goes" which means I am very impressed with the amazing selection.

But generally the women sculpts don't carry purses !

O scale varies based on locale. I believe 1/43 is the U.K. In the U.S. O scale is generally 1/48 or one inch equals 4 feet. Both use the same track gauge.
