If you have sons/grandsons/nephews whatever you may be interested in these. Bruder is about the last toy maker in Germany and exports a lot of their products. I've seen them for much much more in stores.

Heck stock up for Christmas gifts early. I know they have a reputation for being well made quality toys.

    I'll have to mosey over to the RK here and see if they are on sale there. I know a few kids that might get a kick out of some of that stuff.

    I think the sale is online only Mike. They will ship them to an RK store for you to pick up free.

    Those are really good toys, my 3 year old son has a few Bruder trucks and a loader, very well made and he loves them, a lot more durable than anything else too.

    Back in the 70s the border police were running VW bugs with Porsche engines.

    A friend stationed in Germany in the 50s remembers them using 55 Chevy's he would see them on the autobahn. I believe they were issued M-1 Carbines on the border. I remember seeing so market Bavarian police for sale stateside.

    One thing GIs learned real quick was not to mess with the Polizei. The stubborn ones with a few too many German beers in their gut for courage found that out the hard way.

    Wow, those are pretty impressive.  I would've love some of those toy rigs as a kid.  Great detail.

    Some toys were pretty darn good toys when I was a kid.

    However, there were times we had to improvise, a broomstick was my horse and a stick was my sixshooter.

    We had them.  They were called Tonka Toys, and companies like John Deere made functioning metal toys of their products too.  One of my favorites was the John Deere hay baler.

    I had a few Tonka toys as a kid.  I remember one particular light blue jeep that was fairly large and could hold a traditional GI Joe-sized action figure.  Hess trucks were a big holiday hit back then, too.
