    I wonder if some of the pieces, at least the red fins, were from this 1960 ITC motorized sub kit?

    I am not sure if these are classic toys, someone's customs or what, but does anyone know anything about these Civil War figures/dolls? I've tried looking up various civil War figures but my google fu fails me and I get mostly Marvel action figures with every search result.









    they are up for sale in a charity auction (I have only seen pics not the actual items) and I am intrigued but know nothing about them.

    The same auction has this lot up too, which also baffles me...



    I am guessing from the pics these are all 12 inch scale, but no solid information is provided with the pictures. My wife is working in that scale doing customs and might be interested in these, but she asked me to try to find out more about them before she decides and I have come up with nothing solid. If anyone knows anything or even has an educated guess about manufacturer, scale, approximate year they are from, etc. any help would be appreciated.

    I'm not sure but, I think those Civil War figures were from the soldiers of the world line, they were sold at Walmart in the 90's.

    About the Civil War figures:
    tjacwave50 is correct.
    Brand: Formative International. Boxes can be found with no store name or Target or Wal-Mart. Selling period is mid 90's thru 2001-ish.
    Here's a box-back from 2001.

    The basically covered all the wars including Desert Storm. An Ebay search for Formative International will now give you a better idea of all the quantity of product they put out.

    As for the final picture, I can only tell you about the Green Hornet (in hat and green eye-mask) and Flash Gordon. These two are the 90's Playing Mantis re-issues of Captain Action (originally released by Ideal in the 60's).
    Note: Captain Action was recently brought back again just a few years ago under a different brand name. These two are definitely the 90's versions, not the most recent ones.

    In the bottom picture the fellow in the long burgundy coat is Van Helsing by Jakks. To the right of him is Frankenstein from the same Jakks Van Helsing line.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Those Civil War guys were sold in different department stores in the late 90's

    I used to own the raising of the American flag at Iwo Jima boxed set.

    Think they were all sold under the SOLDIERS OF THE WORLD banner

    The same guys with different clothes were also sold as Rapid Deployment Force. There's one dressed like the Punisher.
