The Funky Chicken - Yet Another Mystery Figure
I'm spending an unhealthy amount of time dredging through the dark recesses of the spares bags at present, trying to find figures suitable for a career change, leading draught horses and carts etc around.
This fellow (there's only one of him - it's a montage) is clearly RHA, and his jacket without tails suggests he is a gunner rather than a driver (a distinction which S-Range Minifigs never got the hang of). What is he? What, moreover, is he doing? From likely date of manufacture, it might be the Funky Chicken, or possibly the Frug.
I thought he looked like a horse-holder, and maybe Alberken or early 20mm Minifigs, but I cannot find such a figure listed anywhere. Maybe he's a conversion, but I don't think so. Anyway, he's likely to find himself leading a limber around in the near future. He's 20mm - skinny little chap, as you see, but wiry.
