HO scale plastic figures

Continuing with the task of finding HO scale figures that will bring to life my nightclub street - see yesterday's blog for more details.

Today, I sorted the plastic figures that I do have into 3 categories:

1) not-relevant eg seated, with walking sticks or children.

2) standing

3) walking

Walkers in top row; standing in bottom row.

Close up.

The problem is that the walking figures (top row) aren't always obviously walking and those that are, are carrying bags of some sort - more passengers than nighttime revellers.

Also, all the walking figures are male.

Also, there are no figures that are walking and looking sideways at the same time.

I will have to augment what I have. Therefore I made two purchases on eBay.

Merrymakers from the German firm, Faller

Figures from some Chinese supplier
But, I'm going to do some more research as to what's available.

Currently listening to:

The latest 2 hour mix from Optimo on Rinse FM.

Last night's dinner:

Rib-eye steak, cabbage and potatoes
Currently reading:

Got 2 new autobiographies from library:

Chicken and tomato rolls for lunch.
The Janet Street-Porter memoir is well written, but her life repulses me so I won't go any further with it.

God knows what the other one will be like.
