Britains Swoppets Archive

This is an archive listing of Britains "swoppets" and is for information purposes only - to see what I currently have for sale click here.

54mm scale plastic figures with moveable/interchangeable parts. These were factory painted and made during the late 1950's to early 1970's. All figures are in the correct poses and are complete with original accessories unless otherwise stated.

WILD WEST

First released in 1958 and replaced by the "deetail" range in 1971. There were 6 poses in each series, foot figures were issued with a set head, torso and legs combination. Mounted figures used the same combinations of torso hand head/hat but only 1 set of mounted legs were produced each for cowboys and Indians. The figures also came in certain colour combinations such with the Indians being painted in certain styles and cowboys having particular combinations of colours such as white torso & tan legs, red torso & grey legs, yellow torso & blue legs, etc. Mounted figures were first issued on the Herald horses, however, with the release of the 2nd series cowboys in 1965 four new horses were released and used for all mounted figures. The standing horse was discontinued in 1968 when the 2nd series cowboys were discontinued. The only other figure to use this horse was the Indian Medicine Man and at this time it was changed to the rearing horse.
