Re: Stamps

Good choices. I'd definitely have gone for Hornby and Scalextric. Maybe not Meccano as it was part of the same stable as Hornby. Monopoly or Cluedo ? They're classics. Probably a girl's toy's going to be in there, some doll or other. Britains model soldiers maybe. Airfix, Dinky (or Matchbox or Corgi...

Stamps

I see Royal Mail are bringing out some stamps showing "Classic Toys" in August.

Wonder if Subbuteo is going to be on there ?

Obviously, now that the Germans own Royal Mail, they could go for Tippkick.

So - if you were choosing say, six toys, what would you choose ?

No Subby - too obvious .....

Re: World Cup hw box labels x 16 Set repro

To add if you want them shiny like the origs with a shiny coating just put clear sellotape over the top before you cut them out

Re: Mixed teams/players

I'm not disputing that. Recent pictures from their World Cup qualifiers show all their players who started the match to be white.
Exactly. Whoever did the painting didn't bother with the detailed research that you decided to carry out.

Opinions of the term vary amongst New Zealanders. Some find it highly offensive ......
Interesting views on a word that appears in the NZ national anthem.

Re: Mixed teams/players

It's come straight from the manufacturer, not from eBay or anywhere like that.
Nevertheless, my earlier comment stands. Someone made the decision to have those skin tones in the team.

Re: Mixed teams/players

Ah right.

Think it's a paint job by someone who's never seen an NZ soccer team in the flesh.
