A toy figure of Adolf Hitler and a Nazi HQ playset produced between 1935 and 1944 have sold for £7000 at two auctions in the West Midlands, reports The Mirror.
The Hitler set sold for £5,801 at Aston’s in Dudley whilst the HQ set went for £1,202 at Vectis Auctions in Stockton-on-Tees.
The figure of the German dictator can heil thanks to an adjustable right arm and comes with a Nazi podium and figure of Eva Braun.
A second set is a wooden model of a Nazi headquarters building featuring a figure of Rudolf Hess and a range of paramilitaries.
The toys were used as Nazi propaganda to get youngsters into the Hitler Youth and were made by toy company Elastolin.
It seems dictators have stoked the inspiration of toy makers on more than occasion. For proof, check out the Mr. Dictator Head range from Stephen Ives here.
