LONE STAR figures and vehiclesLONE*STAR Plastic Figures and Diecast Vehicles Archive

This is an archive listing of plastic figures and diecast metal vehicles made by Lone Star and is for information purposes only - to see what I currently have for sale click here.

Vintage 54mm scale (unless otherwise stated) factory painted plastic figures from 1955 - 1976. Vehicles are made out of diecast metal.

"Harvey Series" Plastic Figures

The range of figures made was comprehensive ranging from Robin Hood to World War II frogmen. They are as follows:

Knights, Robin Hood, Africans, Afghans, Cowboys and Indians, American Civil War, Foreign Legion, Anzacs, German Infantry, Red Berets Paratroopers, Royal Navy Frogmen, Royal Marines, Foot Guards, Guards Band, Mounted Lifeguard and a Highland Band. They also made swoppet type knights, Cowboys and Indian's and ski troops. They also produced a wide range of accessories. The items listed below are the figures in my collection. My collection is not complete and this should only be taken as a guideline to what Lone Star produced.

Reference Number Description
AFGHANS (ARABS)
AF1 - AF8 AF1 - Kneeling Firing, AF2 - Falling Wounded, AF3 - Standing Musket across body, AF4 - Clubbing with Musket, AF5 - Turning With Scimitar Overhead*, AF6 - Running with Scimitar, AF7 - Throwing Rock, AF8 - Crawling with Musket.

These figures were issued in white or grey plastic. The white figures are Afghans and the grey are alleged to be Arabs. If any one has a catalogue or box identifying these ranges a copy would be appreciated. Re issued by Toyway.

Anzacs (Kings African Rifles)
AZ1 - AZ10 AZ1 - Officer firing pistol, AZ2 - Kneeling with sten gun, AZ3 - Marching rifle slung, AZ4 - Firing sten gun at waist, AZ5 - Radio operator, AZ6 - Bayoneting, AZ7 - Crawling with bren gun, AZ8 - Bazooka, AZ9 - Throwing grenade, AZ10 - Kneeling firing rifle. The figures were also painted with dark skin to represent the Kings African Rifles. AZ10* was also released as a white hunter, Plastic warrior state it was made in white plastic so the figure I have here may be an Anzac repainted (Rifle broken). Re issued by Toyway.
German Infantry

These figures were issued in various colours of plastic, light grey for Afrika Korps, Dark Grey Storm troopers, Grey green as Japanese and possibly a creamy colour for Chinese troops. I have yet to come across a cream figure.
Red Berets
RB1 - RB8

RB6

There are 8 figures in this set, these are: RB1 - Officer with pistol, RB2 - kneeling firing rifle, RB3 - throwing grenade, RB4 - flamethrower, RB5 - waving rifle overhead, RB6 - kneeling holding rifle outwards, RB7 - standing firing and RB8 - advancing fixed bayonet. These figures were also issued in Blue berets (U.N.) and Green Berets (Commandos), these are harder to find. The photo of RB6 shows the variation in plastic colours the left hand figure being more green and the right brown.
Paratroopers
P1 - P8

P9 - P13

P14 - P18
There are 18 figures in this set plus a separate mortar, these were usually issued with grey helmets but were also issued in green helmets and with Blue as U.N. troops . The colour of the plastic can vary dependant on type of troops. The paratrooper with arms raised (Figure P13) is hard to find with the original parachute attached and is often mistaken for a surrendering figure. I have shown an example of each figure though helmet and plastic colours vary.

Diecast Metal Military Vehicles

Lone Star also produced a range of diecast military vehicles and trailers. There were two types of trailer, one was longer than the other and these along with the lorry and some of the other vehicles (g.g the DUKW) could be fitted with different weapons accessories. The fittings included Rocket Launcher (with one rocket), Rocket Battery (with 9 rocket tubes), Radar/satellite dish, Searchlight, Twin AA Guns, Single Browning MG. They were usually in green, although desert yellow was also used (sometimes with German markings) and a light blue was used for UN vehicles.

The vehicles came in an illustrated picture box.
