|The picture below shows a larger view of this Complete Set of (9) Old Ajax U.S. Army Soldier Royal Pudding Premium Hard Plastic Play Set Figures. These playset figures are not dated but they are believed to be from the 1940s or 1950s. The hard plastic figures are all in Army or olive green and they were modeled after similar lead toy ''pod foot'' Soldier figures that were made by Barclay or Manoil.|
The Royal Pudding box advertisement is NOT included in this lot. It is shown for reference only. The Royal Pudding box back advertised the playset figures that could be ordered by mail. You could have ordered (4) figures for 25 cents with (3) package fronts of Royal Puddings Gelatin Desserts. Lemon Pie Filling, or Custard Flavor Dessert Mix. OR you could have ordered this ''Special 9 - Man Team'' (all different) for 50 cents with (3) package fronts. Also, on the original box was a paper cut out of one of the Soldiers with a fold over bottom for it to stand up.
This is the complete set of all nine different hard plastic Soldier figures! To judge the sizes the Communications Man or Radioman figure with his antenna measures 2-7/8'' tall. These figures appear to be in excellent or better condition as pictured with only very light wear from handling and storage.
