20 / 25mm Western Figures

Giant, a Hong kong company, made most of its figures by copying larger 54mm figures from other makers, and having them shrunk to the 20 / 25mm range. Others have since followed suit, as exemplified by this recent Chinese set.  The 25mm figures are copies of 54mm Airfix pieces, and the accessories are scaled-down copies of items packed in 50 - 54mm scale bagged toy sets. Cheap or not, better figures occasionally retain details in the "shrinking".

These accessories are 25mm scale versions of those found in current full-size bagged playsets. Note the palm trees.  Oddities like this are common  with Chinese-manufactured sets.

These cowboys are 25mm size copies of 54mm Airfix Western figures.  Note the good detail.
