One of the reasons I always liked the ring hand figures is that they came in different colors. I could use dark green for Army and light green for Marines. Or Special Forces.

This patriotic group is very nice. The red were sold as firemen. I suppose because firetrucks were red. The white was sold as medical or ski troops, and I use them for that. The blue was typically Navy or Air Force but also as police.

The yellow was sold as farmers. Because corn is yellow? I would have thought brown, like the soil.

The purple guy for Easter? Royalty? Who knows?

Together they are quite the rainbow of colors, without painting and for different uses.
