King and Country: Dispatches

Hello there and welcome to the latest King and Country Dispatches, only with a bit of a difference. Read on and all will be revealed!


        Welcome to a “DISPATCHES” with a difference…From this month we’ve decided to limit “DISPATCHES” to news of what will be appearing in just that particular month.

        So no advance warning on what will be available the following month…sorry!  This way we hope to keep collectors and dealers focused on what will actually be ready and available for shipping over the next 30 days…plus why provide competitors with additional info on what we’ve got in the pipeline!

        Of course with all rules there will be exceptions and from time to time, if and when we have something unique, we will announce it in advance either with “DISPATCHES” or in a special announcement at any time during the month.

So, all the figures available for sale this month are the ones previewed in last month's post meaning, in short, that there's nothing new to report on save to tell you what's being retired. Heading for the hills this month are the following and, bearing in mind I've got no new eye candy to show you, I thought I'd add some pictures of all those figure sets heading for the hills, courtesy of the guys at The Toy Soldiers Club in Canada

I was fortunate enough to grab the last two on the shelves of K&C UK, 1 each of LAH 133 and LAH 134. Phew! I hope you're just as lucky with whatever purchases you have planned. Happy hunting!
