These are not militaria but they are about as Communistic as it gets.

Lenin
Stalin
Brezhnev
Gorbachev

Is the white haired (4th) one Khrushchev, Andropov or Chernenko?

Not really my thing but still came home with me. Has anyone seen these before? Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

The character with with the white hair would be Boris Yeltsin, I believe.  Interesting collection.  Would you care to tell us the source of them, or, what they are?

Pick them up at an antique shop. They are made of lead(?). Other then that I have no source for these. Wonder how many more are in set?

Yeltsin being the tallest is 2-3/4 in tall.

Yeltsin looks like Steve Martin.
Nice set of figures. I've not seen that type before.

Those are nice bits of history.  I have never seen them either.  Very cool.  Thanks for posting them.
