Since the plastic shots were being prepared for potential marketing photos, each shot was carefully handled as it came off the mold to insure straight rifles, swords, spears, bows, etc. Our goal was to create realistic color schemes without painting.The different horse molds, f or example, were shot in white, then blending to tan, blending to darker browns, then blending to grays and then darker into black. In another example, the cavalry molds and all civil war figures were shot in both light and dark blues and grays. All Alamo Mexican soldiers were shot in tans blending to various blues and reds. The results were some very nice color variations.
But each color was also shot uniformly for each standard color-because toy stores would need standardized colors. In 1981, however, the Vietnam War had gutted the U. Public's interest in toy soldiers, Romans, western themes, and even Robin Hood themes. The marketing plans failed, and 99 percent of the plastic figures and accessories were placed by the last investor into a nice storage facility.
