Pics of my Gollies from the
Note the pointed feet and large whites to the
eyes - this generally helps to distinguish them from the 1990's series
which tend to have rounded feet and smaller whites to their eyes
There are many variations on a theme with this series: the Cricketeers balls vary in size - ouch; the Fireman's nozzle also varies but this time in length; there are 3 visibly different Footballers, one has a distinctively smooth 'Bubble' coating; the Golfer comes with different coloured sticks - sorry clubs; the Jogger's feet can be square or pointed; the Lollipopman's pole can be long or short; the Motorcyclist's screen has different shades of blue; the Policeman's helmet sometimes has a bobble on the top; the Postman's pocket varies in colour; in fact too many variations to list here. Again, for those interested in checking the backstamps, there are 3 different ones with this set, and some of the badges come in all 3 varieties. Plenty of scope in this series to form a collection of its own.
