I remember having these old TSR plastic miniatures as a kid. I can't for the life of me remember how I got them. Does anybody know anything about the miniatures in this picture? (I am selling them as part of a lot on Ebay).

Just curious.

*squint* Looks like you've got some of the D&D 1" PVC figures... Kelek (black robed wizard), Ringelrun (White robed wizard), a couple of Stronghearts (armored guy) Um...Warduke (evil looking one), Skyla (the female wizard) and a couple of Zarak (little gobliny guy). Going by memory here. I think there were 8 different figures (Mercion and Elkhorn being the other two). Not sure if they're worth much (unlike the Tiamat figure...), though I know Skyla was only produced in this size. They never made a bigger figure of her like they did the others. Hope that's mildly helpful. :}

Any ideas about how it was packaged/sold?

I went home a few months ago and found these in a dark corner. I remember having them as a kid. When I went to grandma's, I didn't have any dice and yet wanted to play a game of D&D. I remember putting a piece of tape on the back of each one and writing a number on them. I would then throw them all at once. I would then take the number on the back of the one that went the farthest and used that. They're in pretty good shape all things considered. :D

Ahhh, the memories. I really hate to see some of this stuff go. But you gotta let go sometime...

I think they were sold both separately and also all together in a boxed set. I know a friend of mine has some of the singles. *laugh* That's a pretty unique way of doing dice rolls. Hey, whatever worked for you. ;}

I'm sure if you websearch a little you might be able to come across a checklist with values and such that may help more if you're wanting to get that in-depth.


Waterdeep? Never heard of it.

The Toyarchive is a good web site featuring the AD&D action figure line from LJN. You should be able to find the information you are looking for somewhere within this site:

STA:  Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Action Figures & Toys

A shop for Action figures from the UK (don't know if there still in business):

Those were some good links Ralf, thanks. I didn't see the bullywugs or carrion crawler in the monster section though, so maybe their lists aren't complete.

Wow, that was a neat link - how do you find this stuff? Mainly, I was just trying to remember how I got these (I would have been in elementary school at the time). I figure they'll sell for whatever they sell for, and I highly doubt they'll dwarf the L3 in the auction they are with. Although I do have the "uber-rare" Skyla  :o

I don't recognize the group pack, and seeing as how I have duplicates of some, plus figs that weren't in the pack, it couldn't have been from that. I guess I might have picked them up in a garage sale. No telling. Maybe I stole them from my older brother.

When they pry them from your cold, dead hands, you will have to let that stuff go. :lol:
