    My cousins had The Lone Ranger and Butch Cavendish. We used to call him Black Bart. I don't think they had the posable horses, but I do remember a plastic horse. Lincoln Logs provided the town.

    Great line! I had such wonderful memories of playing with these figures. I currently have Lone Ranger, Tonto, and Butch Cavendish in their respective boxes. LR and Tonto are both bagged with all accessories. I've also got the Lone Ranger/Silver box set complete as well. I would love to see the pics of your collection! Sounds awesome.

    i realy like them because they are posable like mego and i think thats why many of us love them. the hands gabrile made were better and more workable to hold the accessories then megos . horses ive never seen so i cant say but they sound cool. mike

    I actually bought a Scout this past weekend at a flea market, with stand for $2.00. The seller thought it was a breyer horse. Worked out well, since I got a complete Tonto in a mego lot a few years ago.

    My Ranger is in need of repair and cleaning, and in need of Silver... but it's good to see Tonto riding high.

    I love this line.

    This was one of the best lines there has been made, hands down. So far in my collection of 10" figures I have : Lone Ranger w/ Silver, Tonto w/ Scout, Butch Cavendish w/ Smoke, and I also have the Carson City Playset. I plan to build a display cabinet for all my Megos, playsets, Lone Ranger figures and town real soon. Being a cabinet maker for a living should provide some usefulness,....HAHA! Anyway, soon as I get the time to do it, I'll get some pictures out. Catch y'all later!--B.

    Definitely want to see some pictures when you get the display built. Sounds like you have a killer Lone Ranger collection.

    I was fortunate enough to win a boxed Lone Ranger and boxed Tonto in this years Megomeet raffle thanks to a very generous donor. They are just fantastic figures. I had wanted a Lone Ranger to replace my childhood one for such a long time. The one I won was still sealed in the baggie but temptation got the better of me and I opened the bag after he`d been untouched for 30 years. I needed to see him with the mask and hat on again. They are now definately firm favourites as part of my collection.

    My dad is a big Lone Ranger fan, having been lucky enough to be a kid during the Ranger's radio heyday. So I've always had an affection for the Masked Rider of the Plains. My grandparents gave me the Lone Ranger/Silver and Tonto/Scout reissue giftsets for Christmas the year "The Legend of the Lone Ranger" was released. I love them and played with them a lot, but only the horses survived in any kind of shape.I picked up a decent Tonto back in the late 90s, but I just couldn't find a nice complete Ranger.

    A few years ago while on vacation my wife and I visited an antqiue mall. I looked over and there was the Lone Ranger, with his awesome painted box. As I walked over the William Tell overture played in my brain. I had to have it. Now I have them all displayed in a case that once belonged to my granfather. Pretty appropriate, I think!


    It would be pretty easy for me to plunge headfirst into collecting this line. Maybe after I get all the WGSH wrapped up...
