Nice toys right?

Still see them around?

Probably not since these were the first Real Toys to be sold in recent times. I think this was around 2005 or 2006.

Now, one thing that can be said about the Toywizard is that he is an excellent judge of value.

In his eternal wisdom, he allowed all these toys, which were previously in his magical toy chest, to be sold and did not bother to keep one for himself!

Now these Real Toys cannot be seen on the market anymore and upon seeing these photos, the Toywizard says that was a real smart move genius.

Seriously that was an epic smart move. I even recalled telling myself how nice the castings were. These were not cheap spin offs as they were pretty heavy, had good details and had excellent finishes.

So if you see the older casting Real Toys such as this on the market, check them out. You'll be pleasantly surprised at how good they are.

My only consolation is I regained my sanity in time to at least keep these which I still have, which are not for sale.
