Britain’s 15th Century Swoppet Knights
These wonderful figures have been well covered by a number of other sites so I’m not going to offer up a history of the figures because I cannot do it better than those who are so passionate about them ( I do have a few in my collection ). Suffice to say they remain one of the greatest toy soldier series in plastic ever produced and remain highly collectable but not out of the reach of the average collector.
Ebay remains the best place to pick them up although you may well come across them at collectors fairs or auctions especially if you are seeking boxed and complete models.
For more information on these figures I strongly recommend Steve Burns comprehensive web study of the figures and many related areas. http://easyweb.easynet.co.uk/goldkeep/Swoppets/index.htm
Here’s some of the figures I have found and sold over the last few years . The Yellow lance is a scarce variant and as far as I know is not a copy .
