    We'd NEED ZATHRAS (ALL 11 of them).
    I'd buy them for sure.

    I remember writing Harlequin UK back in the day and asking, "What, no Zathras?"

    The were quite well done!

    I have about 9 of the boxes and am still looking for the rest, but they are extremely hard to find as they came as a limited edition back in the days.

    Those are the ones. Trouble is, they don't come painted so the one set I did have I sold almost immediately. I just don't have the skill for that.

    Amazingly well done, except for Zack, Lochley & Morden.

    Those are so cool! I don't think the Franklin expression is quite right but that's a quibble. Love how the sculptor captured some of the characteristic poses, too.

    The closest commercially available figures I've seen even slightly comparable to these were some small pewter figures that were out back in the day. I don't think they were nearly as good as these, though. Or at least they weren't when they were unpainted. I never saw any painted ones except on the boxes.

    Those are really great! I try to stay away from stuff like that just because it can easily get out of control, but I'd break my vow to get those

    Oh jeez, those are really great.

    My kids saw them on screen when I looked at them, and immediatly wanted the Shadow, Sinclair, Londo, and Morden figures. "Can we go to Target and get them?"

    Oh, to experience B5 heartbreak at such a young age....

    I wonder why Dr Franklin looks so mad?


    Otherwise, great job, no wonder they won awards.
