    Picked this one up because he had an intact neckerchief and belt plus a the spurs and spur straps. The neckerchief is almost always broken where it connects in front. Plus one can never have too many cavalry figures.
    General Custer was released in 1968 and sold through 1977. In 1975 his accessories went from black to dark blue and silver so that puts this one at 1968-74. He was part of the Johnny West series of action figures which was sort of a western equivalent of GI Joe. I put the kepi hat on this one (came with 3 hats) so now he is trooper Custer. The other cavalry figures were molded in a flatter steel blue which I prefer.
    Last photo Trooper Custer is on the right with some of the other cavalry figures. I think Captain Maddox wants his neckerchief.

      It amazes me that all the little accessories haven’t been lost through the decades! Your toy collection is in a word.....wonderful! To bring all these lost little figures back together again takes time and effort! So much fun to see!

      Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. Getting those little accessories is the hard part.

      I have one like it that I bought new on the 70's, don't have all of the accessories anymore. I also have the Indian with the mohawk but he's missing a hand. Used to have the cowboy and cowgirl but not sure what happened to them. Also have the horse somewhere.

      Thank you very much crewnail. As far as action figures go these are a lot more affordable than GI Joe.

      I've never seen any at garage or estate sales, probably have to be an online purchase.
    8. fortapache fortapache, 20 days ago
      I see loose ones at the vintage fleas and boxed only online. Make sure the neckerchief is intact along with the belt.

      Fortapache looks like you may have the entire collection or close to it, very impressive. I'm tempted to start my own collection, my wife would probably shoot me if I start collecting another something.

      Thank you very much crewnail. Yes I have all the US issues of Custer.
