Fighting Furies ad from 1975

I really dig this UK ad for the highly underrated Matchbox Fighting Furies figures, mostly because it gives you a drool worthy shot of the display box. In the US, for some reason the spokesperson for this line was Mason Reese (no fooling, check it out here) Matchbox also released a killer playset for this line that I really should own.

    Man. Those were the best. I still remember having Peg-Leg and the samurai warrior (with helmet, katana and plate armor) and bedouin trader (with that cool lonnnnnng musket) playsets.

    What was neat is I remember one of the sets coming with a fake full foot-in-boot to go over the peg. 18th century prosthetics was quite advanced!

    LJ: Ha!
