This set in the Export series features police figures. The five figures plus the motorcycle were repeated a number of times to fill whatever size box was currently being manufactured.

The small range of poses includes an officer in riot gear, one on a motorcycle and a dog handler. The figure on the far right appears to be using a radiotelephone.

To be honest we have no real idea what Italian police of the post war period looked like, and we could not find any reference material for this subject. However, since the set is of contemporary police, there would seem to be no excuse for inaccuracies in uniform or equipment.

As with all the figures in this range, and indeed with most Atlantic figures, these are very thin and not particularly well sculpted. Some flash is in evidence, and some of the figures bear the scars of mould marks. Of course these are very old, and at the time they had little competition. In many ways Atlantic set the standard, and they were made as toys after all, but times have moved on and they compare poorly to today's products.
