One of the Allen's (pretty sure it was the son) started Dusty Trail Toys, making McFarlane type figures, but better. They haven't made anything for some time now and their web site is gone, if it was ever there.

It is sad to see some of the figures 21st never made, among other things. Some very cool stuff, indeed.
But think of the stuff we haven't seen or even know about. :cry

Irish, if the judge and jury were 1/6 junkies, we would get off free and clear. ;)

21st always had the most diverse line of 1/6 on the market. I used to look forward to their stuff more than anything I do nowadays. (Maybe 'cause I was younger then... Plus the fun of the "hunt" of actually finding them in Toys R Us!)

It's a shame they couldn't keep up with the contsantly improving market of 1/6. They were more for collectors, but the collectors migrated to better stuff like Dragon and bbi and-- since they were too pricey to be a casual kids toy-- 21st had no market left to really sell to and they halted production on 1/6.

I really miss the spirit this company brought to the hobby. I'd love to see them try their hand at it again some day.

Love the German and Russian troops in the first post. Very late production 21C stuff was showing a serious attempt to catch up to Dragon and BBI standards of the time.

Fortunately, they are still around and turning out weapons sets. They aren't as detailed as current standards but a pack of interesting weapons for $8 to $10 US is still a good deal, especially if you want them for modeling fodder.
They recently announced their return to Toys R Us, which will hopefully counter some of the distribution problems they've been having with Wal Mart. It was frustrating when my local Wal Marts didn't get the last few batches of weapons sets in. I knew people on the West Coast who were buying them in bulk at blow out prices because their stores were over-stocked.

Who knows, maybe we'll see a comeback one day and then we can all get back to complaining about how their $15 carded sets just aren't as good as the $50-$70 sets from Toy Soldier, ACE, et al. :lol

Would I be totally out of my mind if I brought up the idea of trying to resurrect this product line? I'm sure the molds still exist, how hard could it be to contact the factory overseas and contract to have the figures produced?

I know I would nearly piss my pants if I found out they were being made....
