UBER RARE 1/72 Thierry La Fronde, late 1950's French hero from Medieval Times. French version of Robin Hood. The box and figures are original. Figures are very clean, and quite flexible.
They are secure to the sprues. The box is not a copy. The figures are not 3-D copies. The inner cardboard "tray" is in fine shape.
1st set I have seen to have the tray. The plastic window is clean, flexible and correct thickness for that time period and securely glued in place. Copy boxes have thicker much more rigid plastic windows and the cardboard is thicker. The aging of the box, and plastic window are correct.
The set is complete and numerically accurate. Rumor around the campfire is Airfix made this set for the show's promotions. There is no evidence of that as there is no reference to Airfix anywhere on the box which may have been by agreement. Every set I have seen is loose, with copy boxes or missing pieces with no box. Listed as new because, in essence it is.
Box is in really good shape especially considering it's age, 60 years old approximately. All pictures in this listing are accurate. This is the rarest single figure set in this scale. Overseas rates will be adjusted by location. ALL manufacturers in this scale randomly and without notice change the plastic color of figure sets and model kits.
If color of plastic is a huge issue for you check to make sure I have the exact color you want. Otherwise I send what I have in stock. TeleFrance Films Thierry La Fronde MIB MOS 1/72 Original Issued" is in sale since Friday, July 27, 2018.
