They never made Lasalle...


Thanks to Jeff for sending me this figure. The painter seems to have deceided the nearest figure to Lasalle was Murat (but see comment below). However, the FNCX codes are for the later (current)range, and have the horse furniture attached to the horse. The S Range personalities were coded NS - Murat was NS 9 - and no Lasalle is listed. When I have a chance I will post a comparison picture of this S Range Murat with the Minifigs 20mm/Alberken one.

I do not like to disagree but ...I too think that the figure pictured is Lasalle (Code FNCX7) as I have got one too. I also have a Murat figure (FNCX8) from the same range - I half-remember it was 'Napoleonic Personalities Range' and the Murat figure of that range is very different being mounted on a Tiger-skin Shabraque wearing a peakless Czapka with lots of feathers sticking up. The range must have been one of the last to be introduced with saddlery attached to the rider and was recreated in the new style (saddle on horse)

Happy to stand corrected - thanks for the information
