A few years ago there were some Roman Warrior figures at the dollar store that had mego scale armor that works great for customizing. Does anyone have any of this armor, or Custom dolls made from this armor?

Top dollar paid!

Now thats cool. As a kid I always wanted figures like these having seen those Ray Harry Hausen films like Jason and The Argonauts etc....is this the armour on Mego figures or the actual figures themselves?

Tell us more....!

The figures were bad HEMAN style figures.

THe armor is just the right size to use for customizing.

Unfortunately I have rather missed the boat on these figures and they are long gone. Could you check the pound shops in your area?

All I have found are the pix of customs made with them.

You can make cool customs for a cheap amount of money with them.
In this economy, that is all I have been doing lately Sad

I'm actually in the usa.
Yes, those particularly dodgy figures may just be what i am after Very Happy
I figured that some of the shite figures might still be out in your shops.
Not something you would look twice at I'm afraid.
I certainly didn't. However they are a real bargain for a Quid if you know how to accessorize the parts right.

If you can find any, I'd certainly pay you a decent premium for them.
I have such plans for these things, I just need to obtain them first... Rolling Eyes

So, you'll pay a premium eh?
Yet you know they're in shops?
How about paying $145 each?
Good price?

I remember seeing them online when they came out but haven't seen anything around my parts. Last dollar-store place I went into had knock-off dirt bikers in bright pink girl' packaging.

Funny how when things are plentiful and cheap we ignore them, only realising after they've gone that we might like to get some. But by then its too late, though you've got to admit a lot of the fun is in the search (am I talking about toys or am have I slipped into talking in metaphors about some thing else?)

And may I say what a fine example of good natured banter that is too - the site needs more of it.

Lot's of dodgy wrestlers and cyber ninjas in the cheap shops around here.
Once bought six big police men figures, ripped their heads off, glued on some Xmas tree baubels and made them into armoured robots.
They look great but they are just shells really.
