Downton Abbey

Randy Bond - 1Feb12 5:42AM

I am a big fan of the series Downton Abbey and wish someone would make a set of figures based upon it. It covers from the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 through WWI and into the 1920s. The costumes and sets are spot on and stunning to boot.

Randy those are great costumes & "look" for that era. BBC, AMC ("Mad Men" "Carlos") & HBO ("Boardwalk Empire" "Rome" etc.) are great at producing authentic looking costumes & "look" to the time periods they portray in their mini-series.
HBO begins filming this year an American Civil War mini-series called "To Appomattox" for release in 2013. Check out the website. Great cast too:

Imperial of New Zealand produced some fabulous Victorian era street figures.
Sadly, they no longer manufacture. What a bloody tradgedy.
I had more but lost them when burgled.

Since 1983
