Matchbox Fighting Furies Cowboy Figures

Matchbox Fighting Furies Gallery

While the Fighting Furies wasn’t a giant success in North America, it did enjoy popularity in Europe, particularly the UK, that’s why the second line of Western Fighting Furies was launched there. US Matchbox catalogs showed these three figures but featured the words “Not Available in the USA”.  All photos in this gallery are courtesy of Bill Frost.

Crazy Horse was the only figure in the line that was based on a historical character.

These figures are very hard to find, horses are shown but one has never surfaced, it’s beginning to look like they never got made.

The Cattle Rustler Set.

War Dance Set.

The back of the card advertises a horse  but these to my knowledge have never been found.
