    I find the idea interesting. Can you please tell me where I can find similar toys from B5? Thanks!

      Wow!!! I wish that set was for sale. A set like that could be sold through a company like the Franklin Mint. I remember that they sold a Star Trek collectors chess set and the customer would get one or two chess pieces a month. Then once the customer had about half the pieces, they would receive the chess board it self.
      If this Babylon 5 set was for sale I'd order it in a heart beat.

        These appears to be one of a kind creations.

        On the home page (http://www.coalafilmes.com.br/olyntho/index.html), the artist, Olyntho Tahara, lists himself as a Modelista, Ilustrador, Escultor (modeler, illustrator and sculptor).

          I wonder why Dr Franklin looks so mad?


          Otherwise, great job, no wonder they won awards.

            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....

              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

                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.

                  Do you mean the Harlequin pewter miniatures?
                  The were quite well done!
                  Here are a few examples:





                  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 miniatures are fantastic! Thank god they are not for sale, I would among those who'd order them without a second's hesitation.
                    It's easy to find something worth dying for. Do you have something worth living for?

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

                        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.

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

                            Well, Jan, if you ever come by another one of those, just think of me!

                            I'm still looking to finish my collection...
