1981 Gabriel Toys Lone Ranger Catalog
The Lone Ranger was riding high in 1981 thanks to a popular Saturday morning Cartoon series (by my favourite company Filmation) and the promise of a big bugdet film (that didn't work out so good).
So Gabriel Toys blasted the toy shelves with two distinct toy lines, a relaunch of their popular 1970s 9" Toy line and a 3 3/4" line so you could have Tonto get a sasperilla in the Creature cantina!
Just like the 9" line before it, the 3/4" line was made with a lot of care and quality. I wish Gabriel had gotten more licenses...
Not enough figures in this scale can kneel.
Radio controlled VINcent, never got made either but the walking VINCent did, unfornately it's a pricey UK only figure.

While it's terrific to see the Lone Ranger and Tonto, most of the supporting cast of figures didn't return.
Toy guns and the Lone Ranger are pretty much a given..
