West Coaster Toy Soldier Show
On March 10, MRS Bunkermeister and I visited the West Coaster Toy Solder Show. We had a great time and I got lots of new troops and equipment. There were a few guys there in period costumes and a few ladies as well. This guy was dressed as a British soldier during the American Revolutionary War. He is seen here sending a text confirming that the British are coming.
When I go to these shows I try and make up a list of the things I want to try and purchase. Mostly I was after 60mm Tim Mee figures and I did get some of those. Nearly the whole show was metal but there was enough plastic to make it worthwhile for me.
I got a couple slush cast cannons, and a slush cast pill box. I also got a few 1/72nd scale French Foreign Legion troops and some spacemen. I will post photos of them in a few days. Nick from TSSD was there with his wife and they looked good. Chris Brewer was there from the Brewer Brothers Kit Collector Show. More hobby show news soon.
