Deetail - Wild West - Cowboys

One of the things I like about the cowboy series is the many different paint schemes which gives them a uniqueness not found in the uniformed figures.

The first series 'dismounted' cowboys and the only set of Mounted cowboys were released in 1972.
The second 'dismounted' series was made from 1979 to 1998.
The third series was made from 1983 to 1988.
1st Series - Foot (dismounted) Cowboys Gallery of images
The first series cowboys on foot was produced from 1972 until 1983/88.
They first appeared in the 1972 Britains catalogue and were in every catalogue up until (and including) 1981. Four of the figures continued to be produced up until 1983, and the other two up until 1988 (the Mexican and the one handed standing gunsliger).
The stained paint version of these figure were produced up until 1982.
As you will see in the gallery of Images, there are a number of paint variations for each figure.

3rd Series - Foot Cowboys Gallery of images
The third series was made from 1983 to 1988 and the figures are the most difficult to locate across the cowboy range. Two of the figures are from the first series, and the next four are similar to second series but have noticeable differences. Luckily there's a big clue to third series,there are two colours, and one colour is always green or bluegrey.







Mounted Cowboys Gallery of images
The mounted cowboys were produced from 1972 until 1998. There appears to be more poses of 673,675 and 676 than the other three, not sure why this seems to be the case. There are at least two color schemes.
