Looking for something else entirely and came across this gem. Can't remember where I got it from now and had only been sorting out Minifigs catalogues a few weeks back… totally slipped my mind. Anyway, full scan on my blog.

Back a few years someone posted a Minifig catalog book, saw lots of my figures listed.

That is a classic.

I remember the store near Victoria Station in London and the number of purchases I made there. In retrospect to me that was my favourite time as a gamer as I was able to go into a store with my list of what I needed to complete my armies then seeing what they looked like and leaving with what I needed. Insatnt gratification ! Online shopping is good but no where near as fun.

7p for a 25mm fig – gross profiteering.

Redblack, I also find my memories of my early wargamimg years more pleasant and I miss those days also. I was like a kid when a package arrived from the UK.
Sometimes though I wonder if in fact it is just my youth I miss?

I recognise that catalogue. It would be from when I started on all this in the early 70's.
Airfix, but Minifigs for birthdays and Christmas,packed in sawdust.
Very nostalgic.

Red, the Victoria store was a great trip back in the days. The shop of dreams. Sad when it closed
