Probably more accurate than the Endfield/Baker film of some years ago......(though I didn't have the sound turned on).

There must have been an awful lot of work gone into it.

Having a couple of Lego mad grandsons I can really appreciate the amount of work that went into this. Brilliantly done.

My son just told me he's tracked down the company that made the figures (not Lego). The figs. cost £15 each! A helmet £1.50. Your grandsons will have to save up their pocket money Frank...or stick with the starship troopers and unicorns..

Hi Julian,

I have been a wargamer and figure collector for most of life (I must get out more or get more friends), though I've never collected 'lego' type figures (I've converted some for the kids) but I have seen a lot of these 'conversions' made and sold on places like e-bay - they started off being made by individuals for fun but then the idea grew, into more commercial ventures.

Obviously 3D printers have been a right asset to people.

You can now get all manner of historical, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter figures.

They sell as you say between £4 and £15 or so each - some even more.

ta

Simon

Now Frank, if you were to sell off the contents of your wine cellar - you could probably buy them a real Chard.....
