In 1974, Matchbox toys ventured into the action figure market with the Fighting Furies, a series of well made Pirate action figures that had piles of adventures to choose from. Fighting Furies is often forgotten when discussing 70s brands and that's a shame because it's really high quality stuff.
Thanks to the generosity of Lou Melograna (Megolike.com) and Bill Frost, Plaidstallions now hosts one of the most comprehensive Matchbox Fighting Furies Galleries on the web:
In addtion to having the 1974 Matchbox Fighting Furies Catalog, we also have galleries devoted to the packaged figures and outfits:
