John Allen 2009 figures
JOHN ALLEN 2009
This Catalog page shows HO (1:87) John Allen figures currently available from 2009 Q3&Q4.
The figure picture is below the description of the figure.
Gordo Sorfeetz is the oldest of the Sorfeetz brothers gang. His name is dual purpose-
- Gordo is short for Gordon as in Gordon Varney who applied John Allens story telling pictures to advertise his Varney products. Gordo was my first released figure and was named as a tribute to Mr. Varney.
- Gordo is also the short familiar name for Fat one.
- Gordo is armed with a hand gun with extra ammo in his gun belt. In his left hand is a clay Pulque cup that he refills more often than his pistol.
Gordo is available as a painted figure for $7 each or $3 as a raw unfinished casting.
Mitad is the Middle brother in the Sorfeetz gang and his name means middle in Equadorian Spanish. Mitad is armed with a rifle and two bandolers of ammunition. Mitad gets quite a bit of unrequested advise from his older brother. With characteristic aplumb, he says advise is worth what you pay for it.
Available fully painted $7 or unpainted RAW casting $3.
Pequeno is no longer available until his mold is redesigned
Retired Diesel Salesman
The retired Diesel salesman (RDS) or hanging man was the key element in one of the most remembered John Allen photographs.
