Very handsome dolls, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Powerful men in their time
Where did you find those? They're a little creepy!
Bill Phillips: RAF Cosford Museum. There is a large cold War Exhibition which is very interesting.
Great find Bill... they had more than a few hard headed leaders....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Stalin was a monster who made Hitler look like a moderate.

Can't say I like their faces, Bill
Bill Phillips: Apart from old Gorbachev they weren't exactly overflowing with charm

Who are these people, where are they, what are they doing, did you buy one, did you buy all three, have you run out of inspiration?
Bill Phillips: You don't recognise these soviet leaders? I was going to suggest a vist to this museum one day...

Are these the three stooges but who is the odd one out?
Bill Phillips: Stalin.....he was a monster!
I guess these dolls are caricatures to various Russian presidents, but I can't say I would want them on my sideboard. I've never heard that song before, but I liked it.
Bill Phillips: They are indeed. Stalin, Khrushchev, Brehzniev and Gorbachev

I am always impressed with things they make. I wonder if they make good money with these dolls, Maybe as a salt and pepper shaker...
Bill Phillips: Stalin as a salt shaker....now that's an idea

Do they fit one inside another?
Bill Phillips: I couldn't possibly comment.....wink
They don't look much like dolls to me. They look like nasties.
Bill Phillips: Well Old Gorby was all right......

Bunch of shiney domes.
Bill Phillips: Polished performers clearly
I don't like Russian dolls,they are full of themselves..
Bill Phillips: It's the way you tell them Frank grin
Not exactly a cheery bunch to display on the mantle shelf
Bill Phillips: No I wouldn't want them on mine!
They look like characters out of a comic Bill. The bad brigade
Bill Phillips: I suppose they are caricatures Janet
A most unusual group of characters.
Bill Phillips: Some of the most powerful people of their time Brian
Ohhh, can't imagine a child wanting to play with those sour puss dolls, Bill. Scary!
Bill Phillips: They are an exhibit at the Cold war museum at RAF Cosford Beverly
Mikhail Gorbachev is the only one to have come away with any sort of credibility.
Bill Phillips: Actually quite a lot. Stalin was probably the most evil man of the 20th century
Were these in a shop Bill? Quite unusual.
Bill Phillips: At the RAF Cosford museum. There is a large exhibition devoted to the cold war. Very interesting.
Nice montage. Totalitarian souvenirs!
Bill Phillips: They are indeed Dave
Some of them were frightening Bill! Fine montage.
Bill Phillips: Stalin was probably the most frightening man of the last century1
50th anniversary of Cuba. Very apt.
Who would want a Stalin doll?
Ha.. Aren't they just as cute?
