A special note about the Troopers, 60th Anniversary, Limited Edition, numbered, drum major figure.
After a 2+ year effort on my part to fulfill a mutual arrangement to produce this figure, and once 500 figures were ready, Troopers Drum Corps reneged on helping me market to their alumni of 60 years. They didn't want anything to do with it, denied we ever had a deal, and left me holding the bag for 500 figures, at a cost of well over $6000.00, PLUS the opportunity cost of NOT doing a figure for some other corps that would have embraced one.
So starting Oct 1st, I am selling this figure for $22.00 + $3.00 handling, a normally $40.00 figure. I apologize to everyone who paid full price, but I can't sit on 400 figures just because somebody got their nose out of joint or they have a personal problem with me or Drum Corps Miniatures. It is not my fault if these corps do not want free money just to send an e-mail out to their alumni e-mail list.
This figure was produced by William Britain, the oldest and most prestigious toy solder company in the world. Rarely do they do figures for other companies. What aa missed opportunity for the Troopers. I've always liked them. Old School.
