Lucky Luke,faster on the draw than his own shadow.
I spotted and won those above at Auction,and they went for a Song!Well i thought so. As for the opinions of others i cannot comment upon. You see i am no Seller out to make a fast Buck! I buy because it gives me great pleasure to obtain things for my Special Collection of Toy Figures.So a very fair price i paid,and the Seller in Portugal was very pleased with it. The pleasant lady concerned sent me a very nice E-Mail.They were sold as used,but are in very good condition. The figures are from the Yesteryear of 1973,and are based on the Characters in the 1971 Daisy Town cartoon movie. I was,and still am very pleased with them and they are in my DARGAUD Collection to this day. One day i might well paint them,and that will be a most relaxing time of fun in doing so,but writing and scratch building and the odd moment posting here has meant time just fly`s by. I need Uncle Ned`s TIME MACHINE!
However there was the Sleeping Mexican missing .
So a another Quest to find him was soon under way.
Soon i managed to buy this complete set,and even though made up from differing colored DAGAUD,plastic Bubble Gum Figures,it is a very fine set indeed. If you look above in the picture the Indian Chief is Yellow,but of course this is no slight upon him at all. It is because of him my first Lucky Luke Story was Penned. It happenes to be true.
The First Adventure
Lucky Luke a True Story of Misadventure
Clip, Clop, Clippery, Clop!
Lucky Luke arrived well on time upon my table,but the Indian Brave has very sad news to tell him.
The Indian Chief lay all chewed up." Now that is quite a shame." Luke,said as he finally arrived upon the scene. As he saluted a brave warrior the Officer with tears in his eyes and an arrow through but still in his hat,was stunned and even though his plastic chin was quivering,he was lost for words.The Indians although choked up with grief agreed with each other,that it was best it was him then anyone of them. The word went out upon fresh smoke signals which read, "BB,please can you try and find us another Chief to replace Yellow Hand?" Of course the reply was a resounding yes.
More and more western style figures arrived and they all thought, "Gulp! Gulp! That could have easily been me."
"My, O,My!" The elderly Gent said as he lifted his hat off in meaningful respect.
The Undertaker raised his hat a finger tip off his head and smirked a thin wicked smile. No sooner had he arrived in the collection on that very first day, and his business was up a running. His Pet Vulture elite and dangerous was beginning to get excited at the prospect of grabbing a wicked beak full of the yellow remains. It smelt very tasty to him. His taste buds were well watering his tounge.
The Daltons sashayed upon the table top,and as their shinny spurs sounded out their familiar ring.They lined up in aggressive mood." Does this mean our daily gunfight is postponed Lucky Luke?" The tiny gritty one oddly sounded out in the voice of,James Cagney! They all stood there grinding their plastic teeth. The red Mexican just snored his way through his endless sleep.
Lucky Luke on the right and his Deputy
"Yip! I guess it does." Luke ,replied in the distint voice of Gary Cooper!
"You aint turned Yellow have Ya Luke?" the Daltons bleated out. _______" Nope!"____
"That`s Lucky because the Playmobil Jailhouse is still in the Grand Children`s Toy Box,where it lay in pieces."
"Yes it`s sure a shame!"____" Yes indeed."____" Very Sad."
The Undertaker and his Vulture elite,are of course two which felt no sorrow.
So we now need a third do we not?
Meet Bella,our Bella, is the third one not feeling sorry. She being the chief culprit in this whole affair.Her whole look with that twinkle in her eye is one of, "Butter will not melt in my Mouth" Yes folks a complete lovable face of innocence! Yip, it was Bella our little Musky,that chewed up the Indian Chief Yellow Hand.
Watching on Mr`s B,and i, were amazed at the share speed of the process,as a battle field casualty conversion appeared in seconds. Go on laugh.
Was i angry? No i was not. Anything that ends up on our floor falls pray of our Pet,our little friend Bella. I cannot say,"i was pleased," But it was my fault entirely,because as i opened up the package that the tiny Button of a Mail Lady had delivered, it had dropped to the stone floor. Bella,was upon it in a quick smart reaction time. NASH! NASH! NASH! Such was the terrifying end for Yellowhand. It must be said that he tried to put up a brave fight,but plastic against white nashers, no chance.
I soon found these figures above,and one being the new Indian Chief Red Shirt.
So all`s well that ends well.
These are rarer then Hens Teeth
For a friend i acquired this full set,in Mint Condition. No money changed hands. It was a good trade where i received two Special FIGZ T Shirts,and he received his full set of Lucky Luke Figures.I could actually be the only one in the United Kingdom to have two such special items.
The Pleasant Good Bye
"That`s all for now folks." The elderly Gentleman said while raising his hat.
