FIRST, A small correction to my previous post where I referred to the Giant of Hong Kong Medieval Knights and Castle Set as 1/72 scale. Actually these small sets were HO scale making them 1/87 not 1/72.
Today's set was purchased as an opened, but otherwise mint set but I noticed a couple of peculiarities. The header card states 'Romans and Castle' yet clearly shows Medieval Knights! DOH! This Roman/Medieval, supposedly mint set had not a single Roman or a single Knight. Instead the bag was packed with Mongols! LOL And actually I'm okay with that - it helps to broaden the collection a little and the castle is awesome, just like I remember them as a kid! I loved these diminutive sets when I was a young 'un.
The header card is marked 'YF' - who is 'YF' anyway? A subsidiary of Giant Plastics? A knock-off company? I had heard through rumors and propoganda that all the tooling from Giant was sold off to another Asian company and subsequently destroyed for its scrap value. True? I don't know. Someone else said this was a 'later' set. Later? How much later? The castle walls are quite crisply molded with only a little flash at the connecting tabs and they're in such good shape they appear almost as if they were made yesterday.
The set includes the 16-piece castle, 4 mounted warriors, and 12 foot soldiers in multiple colors. The castle measures 7" (17.78cm) square , the gate wall is 2 1/4" (5.71cm) H to the top of the gatewhile the other walls are 1 1/2" (3.81cm) Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
I just didn't have the time to photograph the little figures individually - I don't know when I'll get around to it.
