Does anyone know about obtaining either of these old figure lines from Falcon. I have been trying for several years to do so and have been unsuccessful.

I would also be interested in anyone has any to sell. Thank you.

The original owner past away a while back

The new owner hasn't done much

Good luck, Hal.
The age of "true 25mm" is long gone.
There's no money to be made bringing these ranges back into production.
Now, it's 28mm+.
All the old classic ranges had single poses. Today, all the current ranges have multiple poses. Classic example would be Queen's Rangers Hussars. There were MAYBE 20 men in the war. Perry has 6 poses. I have them, by the way. grin

Far too many of these ranges still have the molds, but the owners/heirs refused to sell them to someone willing to produce because "someone" told them they were "worth more than that!" So they sit, not making anyone any money at all.
Some molds were just thrown out.
Some have legal barriers to their being put into production.
Yes. That's all rumor. But I believe it.
Some have new owners who charge extortionate prices. That unfortunately is not a rumor.
I moved on.

Hal;
Keith who has the moulds has talked a lot about bringing things back. But he's in the medical research field and the father of a bunch of kids. Well, I suppose pre-teens, now.

Had a chance to speak with him and Frank at Historicon in 2019 and they're still trying to sort out what they want to do…

epturner ..they are still available .under Matchlock miniatures.

John the OFM20 Jan 2021 5:00 p.m. PST

Watch out.
There are 2 Falcon Miniatures. One in Britain and one in the USA.
I'm pretty sure Hal is asking about the American one, and that Eric answered.

I made an error in my second posting. Instead of needing lists and 25mm SYW from Frontier, I meant 25mm SYW Falcon. Thanks. Hal

jurgenation;
I don't think Matchlock has the entire line. I'll take a look, though.

Thanks.
