Look at these toy-soldiers, chariot-wheels-- broken, horses :richelieu: and other things-- I think these should be considered as memoribilia.
Here are some information with pics that may interest you, friends.

Collectors, as we step through the time portals into Issue 43, it is 1959, not 2009 as you’d expect! PM sort of backs through into the New Year because at Playset Magazine, your fellow collectors, editors and readers all live those times, confident in a happy and prosper.

Issue 43 is at the printers and will as usual ship right on schedule with all of the following featured stories and more:

We are pleased to bring you one of the best interviews with Charlton Heston you will ever read, delivered by a source that may surprise some collectors: Jamie Delson. Jamie knew Charlton Heston on a personal basis and made many interviews with him and we are really delighted to make his story a part of ours for this exciting issue.

The newly discovered Ben-Hur set in the 2600 range – alluded to last issue is in the 2600 series range – reserved for Marx’ famously difficult to find “Half Set” sets usually marketed in dime stores and Ma and Pa type toy stores although this one was from Mexico and, we think, a contemporary of the larger and much better known American Ben-Hur sets. So give this one a minute or two to peruse – it has bronze-swirled accessories that are just awesome and we bring it to you first, right here in this issue, courtesy its discoverer, LaRue Hermic. Here is a shot of those amazing accessories – and they’re just one part of the full story on page 10 of this issue.

This Hest Fest special tribute carries you right up through the color centerspread this time, recreating many scenes from Charlton Heston’s best movies with toy soldiers. You’ll roll that wagon up the ramps during 55 Days of Peking, stand off the Mahdi’s troops in Khartoum; see the oddity of Yanks and Rebs joined in an attack on French Lancers in Major Dundee, and more. “We tried for a fresh and exciting approach to some of cinema’s action packed movies,” says Kath of this issue. “We don’t think this one will disappoint.”
