    Once again a great review.

    Such a shame that the guy who owned S&T pulled the plug on the company and that the masters for these figures have apparently been lost to the hobby. It was a lovely range.

    U have to whole heartily agree with Steve. I was lucky enough to ad a few of these S&T 1/16th guys to my grey army over the years plus some of the 1/35th. They are all very nice figures and sorely missed. Regards, Brock

    Great figure range .....and what a 'tease' for those who can no longer get them (legitimately).

    John Rosengrant himself has been selling some off on here that he says he rediscovered when he moved house, but he's charging top Dollar.

    Like all rare things the price goes up, the fewer around the more the price goes up it happens with most things. Just like the price of one-offs, if you ask one of these great sculptors to do you a single private piece it might end up into the thousands so getting one for around the prices they are going for now 10 or more years on I think is a fair price. Great sculpted figures are still the cheapest "real art" around I think :)

    I've seen them go for less, and I was lucky enough to get an unstarted S&T "Chosin Few" set (which for years had been my "Holy Grail" kit) in straight trade for two other 1/16 figures (one of which was an S&T 1/16 German) from a member on here. But I agree 100% that these are mighty fine figures, and I also take your point. They are worth whatever someone somewhere is willing to pay for them. I guess it depends on how badly you want something.

    Wingnut Wings WWI aircraft kits are another example - Peter Jackson pulls the plug on the company and the result is skyrocketing prices on eBay as suddenly everyone and his dog wants them. I think there's also a lesson in human psychology in there somewhere: the desire to own something that's "rare".

    I had the S&T "Chosin Few" set and when moving house it just vanished I have no idea how or where it went. Never to be found again even years after move :confused:

    Quality figures, such a shame they have ceased as they really stand the test of time regarding sculpting and casting.

    Isn't it strange, that's also happened to me a couple of times: Figure in the stash then suddenly no longer there and seemingly vanished without a trace. Nothing rare/expensive/irreplaceable fortunately, but still maddening and very puzzling.
