Plastic Figure News September 2017 Weston
Steve Weston has posted the following on what he will be bringing to Chicago.
This year, we will be bringing over the latest set that was issued by Engineer Basevich a couple of months back, along with the very LAST TWO sets of the Russian women/Special Forces set – if they don’t sell before we ship! These are the very last of his production, there won’t be more.
He has also sold out of set numbers 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 so if you want to get any or the set numbers above or below this, i suggest you don’t delay and pick them up from whomever.
We’ll have the Replicants Commanches, but sadly, the mounted versions are not quite ready, so won’t make the trip
I will have limited quantities of the ‘No Name’ Greeks and Vikings, plus the additional mounted Roman and Knight that were not available last year, along with a few more sets of the Romans, Russian knights and English knights that were so popular and which sold out on day one or two of last years room trading.
There will also be a few sets of the Action Castings ACW and ‘nam figures on offer.
Lastly, if they arrive before we ship, we will have the Chintoys brand new ACW Union and Confederate Staff sets.
We should be in room 5405 again, as usual.
Look forward to seeing anyone that’s making the trip there.

Plastic Figure News September 2017 Hobby Bunker
Hyobby Bunker has given a hint of what he will be carrying at Chicago that should be of interest to collectors.
I have a Mint Warlord Tower And Zulu storehouse Playset by Conte heading to the show. Both are from the original batch. I may also have a dozen Barzso Playsets if I can pick up this week.
I have also went and sourced some Russian Plastics. Including Engineer Basevich and Chin Toy. Who knows what will show up. I sourced the Plastic Platoon Vietnam figures (very pricey).
Beyond that we will hav ethe usual Marx and MPC recasts, odds and ends, foam, etc. My helper Joe will be bringing some of his collection of vintage Auburn Rubber and other items to sell.
We will be in the Ivory Rooms on the lobby level all week.
From these two reports we can see that collectorss may be able to get some of the new Russian items. Also that Replicants next item is mounted Commanchees which will go well with their foot figures.
