Robin Hood Action Figures

A few days ago I posted that I had made some rather Robin Hood-ish purhases lately that I wished to share with you all. I know I have quite a few blogging friends on here that are fans of the wonderful BBC Robin Hood TV Show that aired from 2006-2009. So I thought you won't mind if I share my joy at finally having completed my action figure collection/family. It took quite a few months of searching online but I was able to piece by piece (or rather figure by figure) add to my collection and I now finally have all of the 5 inch figures. 

I am a little disapointed that all of the characters were not made. How dearly I would have loved a Will Scarlett (*sobs*), or an Allan A Dale figure and I could not believe that they didn't make a Much! But nevermind, I'm glad they at least made these few characters.

Here are a few closer photos of the figures.

Lady Marian and Robin Hood  

The Nightwatchman, Robin and Little John.
Note: This 'Robin' differs to that of the one in the
above photo with Marian.

:O That is so awesome! You lucky girl!
Oh goodness, they should have made the whole gang. What were they thinking?(; -Riley

Ahhhh! I am so jealous of you!!! My sisters and I would love these. I am so disappointed that they don't have Allen or will, why couldn't they instead of making two Marian, or two Robin have made one of each of then, then made Allen and Will? I am pleased that they have Guy of Gisborne though. :)

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh!!!! Where on EARTH did you FIND those? I love them!
Not make Will? *gasp* You must *always* make Will!

These are lovely!! Usually I'm not that into action figures but these are awesome! :)
I love the Vaisey and Gisborne figures, their cloaks and gear are very well done!

How dare they not make a Allan or Will figures?!?!? How can they pick and choose between Robin's friends? But saddest of all is the lack of a Much figure! They should have made Much above the Nightwatchman figure or even the Little John figure.

How neat that you were able to finish your collection! I bet this is your pride and joy right now. :)
You are certainly the envy of each of us Hoodian Fangirls!
Thanks for sharing pictures! :)

Ohmygoodness!! I didn't even know they had action figures for Robin Hood - I used to watch this show and loved it to bits.

And I agree with Miss Laurie - how can they not have included all of the Robin's gang??It's sacrilege. They didn't really need an extra Robin, did they? Much was my favorite *sniff*

OH MY GOODNESS MEL! THOSE ARE AMAZING. :O I simply cannot type without an over-dose of caps here. Oh my goodness. Those are. Those are. I can't even.

BUT THEY DIDN'T MAKE WILL? HOW COULD THEY NOT. *sobs dramatically* They didn't make Will? What were they thinking?

*goes back to gazing, star struck at these amazing photographs*
