The first AA box we have had in stock (and one of only 4 or so examples that Paul Morehead, editor of PW magazine, has come across. Plastic 54mm scale. [Provenance: from the Sheffield collection of plastic and lead figures owned by husband and wife collectors - “It was late spring this year when I was asked to view the contents of a modest three storey house and from the moment I opened the door, I knew this was not the conventional fare. The gentlemen concerned had some serious collecting habits, one of which was model and toy figures, predominantly from the early 20th century, right up to today. It is very difficult to say how many, because of the style of lifetime collector he appears to have been. There were 10,000, 20,000, 30,000 - maybe more, with the majority not in boxed sets but as loose examples, with a cataloguing and sorting system and reference book collection that showed a real insight into the subject. On display, in storage, in display drawers, they were all over the house, and they sat alongside other collections.”]
