have never seen such items at a TRU. I did a google search "12 inch action
figures" and got lots of hits.
Primarily WWII, and Sci Fi but a good place to start. Also consider
checking out a Civil War newsgroup or Yahoo group for info.
militaryhobbies.com carries the full line of Dragon WWII figures. He may
have a source for you to contact.
Sideshow Toys has released several ACW, WWI and other offbeat types of
historical sets in the $30 range. They do complete figure sets and
individual uniform and equipment cards. They even released a cannon for
around $100. They have been out for a while so the older sets may have dried
up but they're always adding to the list. I think Honest Abe is in the
pipeline for future release.
Hasbro has released a few ACW and WWI sets under the G.I. Joe brand but they
are more toy and don't quite scratch the accuracy and detail itch. Hasbro,
however did release both a Grant and a Lee figure so that counts for
I think Dragon is just now getting into ACW figures and Napoleonic era.
I have bought from Good Stuff To Go, Toymaniacs and War Toys to name but
three online dealers that carry a pretty good supply of Sideshow among
others. They often run specials and if they are out of stock, that may very
well be the reason.
Check eBay. A lot of the time you can get a better price there from
collectors that got in on a good sale and over bought.
To reply, get the HECK out of there
