Excel Toys' Little Legends of the West
Excel Toys released these "Little Legends" in 1973 and 1974.
Sometime in 1974, Excel added articulation and sold the line to Empire Toys, who produced many Legends of the West figures, horses, and wagons till 1980.
These "Little Legends" differ from their later articulated cousins in
not just movement, but in sculpting and quality.
These earlier figures are made of a higher quality plastic than the
later cheaper dime store style pieces released by Empire.
The major differences in the sculpting is that Cochise
and Wild Bill Hickok have longer tunics
and Buffalo bill has on a long coat and stripe pants like
his 9" cousin.
