Here's something I picked up a few months back, in parts, and I'm attempting to restore to toyshop shelf levels. Just need to find a way to secure the 6 rifle and 6 handgun bullets in the bottom area (where empty square is).

This is a Topper Toys, Johnny Eagle Lieutenant - WWII Rifle and Pistol Play Set, with display rack. This is circa 1965-67.

This was an awesome toy(set) as each gun actually fired real plastic bullets (spring loaded cartridge that expelled a plastic bullet). You could load six bullets into the clip, then like a real gun load a bullet into the chamber and proceed to shoot your friends eyes out. Needless to say, finding the small plastic bullets once fired was next to impossible. These were VERY dangerous toys, and didn't stay on the market long. The rifle also had an area to put caps that were snapped at the same time as the bullet was shot. Pretty awesome.

The pic below is my set currently being restored, the bullet pics are from the web.

Enjoy - Sad Violin

Wow! That's very cool! It's also interesting to think about how much toys have changed over time - can't imagine that making it to market now!

Look forward to seeing the end result!

I have a NOS container of Johnny Eagle Bullets for sale. I also have many Johnny Eagle items for sale. Including very rare Johnny Eagle store display.
I wish the site would allow me to upload images??

We only allow for external hosting of images. You can post them here, but you have to host/save them to the web somewhere else.

Sorry!

Yah, you need to link them from a Flickr or Photobucket type account.
