The first solids-indians of 1955 came from moulds made for metal casting. The old lead figures already had seperate weapons to plug in their hands. When TIMPO switched to plastic production the holes to plug in the weapons were closed. Instead of a replacable weapon the figures like the spear thrower got a stick in their hands, that replaced the weapon, but in my opinion was too short.

  At this place the three riding indians are missing in my collection.

The following figures were made with moulds for plastic casting. Both kinds of moulds were in use during the early years of plastic solids. 





To the left three rare examples of riders from plastic moulds. TIMPO-conaisseurs will be surprised to discover on the right side the ancestor of the swoppet indian tribe sign.
