Tim-Mee made 6 foot and 6 mounted 70mm Knights plus two different knight horses. Four of the knights came with separate lances that were connected to them in the mold. Of course these all seem to get lost over the years. Lances were molded with the figures. The mold was made in the 1950s and run through 1964, and then stopped for 1965-67 but then run again from 1968-1972. The mold was then sent to Mexico where it was used.

Tim-mee made a nice set of eight Robin Hood figures to compliment their knights. The red figure on the lower left with the bag of loot curtesy of Les Gardner. These figures were not offered for sale as many years as the knights and are harder to find. Final year of production was 1964.

The Pirate set was available in three sizes. Set #167 as seen above would have about 15 assorted pirates plus the seven piece accesory set. The smaller sets (#497 49 cents and 297 29 cents) contained fewer figures and no accessories. Like most Tim-mee sets there was no guarantee that each bag would have all of the poses in a set. The mold was last run in 1964 and then sent to Mexico where it was used.

Like the other figures in this era most of these ACW figures are about 70mm in scale with the exception of the mounted officer (top row left) who is closer to 80mm. Expect both blue & gray color variations and some may have traces of paint. The mold was made about 1960 and run to 1964, but not 1965-57. It was run again from 1968-73, and one final year in 1978. In 2004 the mold was sold to Wild West Toys in Texas.

Tim-Mee also wholesaled their Civil War and Indian figures to Halsams for inclusion in their Fort America playset. Box lid shows Lido figures but as Lido went out of business in 1964 Halsams must have switched to Tim-mee for figure supply. Although we have see a few sets with Lido figures they usually have the Tim-Mee ones.
The two Tim-Mee ACW figyure molds still exist. Each has 15 cavities and at some point (early 1970s we think) the mounted cavalryman shooting rifle was placed in one of the molds. These molds are now owned by Wild West Toys Inc in Texas. You can buy reissues from them. http://wildwesttoys.com is their web address and then click on the link to playset items.
