You may not ever see this fine (or large) a set of Bonanza
Action Figure Toy
memorabilia ever again all together in one lot.
As far as I know, these action figures were the first jointed,
representing popular TV characters that were ever produced.
These toys were made by the American Character Co. in 1966.
Cut and paste the below link to see the original 1966 TV ad
for these toys:
This sale is for everything you see in the photos.
If you have any questions, please ask. I'll answer very quickly.
After the photos is a complete inventory list of all the pieces in this sale.
Look at the photos carefully. I've provided good high resolution
photos and if you see a dink or a mark it probably IS on the piece.
It seems the softer vinyl of the saddles and bridles, if left on the horses
for a very long time, had a bad effect on the harder material of the horses
Where a horse is photographed with a saddle and/or bridle on - the horse's body
is damaged under the saddle (or bridle).
The horses photographed without the saddle and/or bridle are just as they are
in the photos. Some have saddle damage, some do not.
There are 2 sets of just about everything, some in better
shape than others.
First Set is in GOOD - EXCELLENT condition.
Second set is in FAIR - POOR condition.
Size: The figures are approx. 8 inches high ea.

Ben, Hoss and Little Joe Cartwright with hands, no damage
and all joints work.
They all come with their hats and all have gun belts, spurs and vests. Very
