There exist a set of Laurel & Hardy figurines. They are small and probably plastic. They represent at least half of the Laurel and Hardy movies. They are very unique because they are made in a way that represents Stan and Babe in clothing they wore in specific movies. For example, Laurel & Hardy are dressed in blue sailor uniforms for Two Tars and white sailor uniforms for Men O' War. Stan is dressed as a maid and Ollie as Colonel Buckshot for Another Fine Mess. The boys are dressed in their minature costumes with play blocks for Brats, and with overalls and a piano for Music Box, etc, etc, etc. This is a really unique and beautiful set. The artist is said to reside somewhere in England. I really want to purchase this figurine set. I was hoping that someone on this forum could help provide me with contact details for this artist. I would be most grateful! This is a truly awesome collection! Evil or Very Mad

There are also statues of Mae Busch and Fin..."SO help me, BOB!!!"

The statue of Fin is so authenticly detailed that it's frightening. Put Fin on your desk and call him the head of your customer complaint department.

Is the Fin & Mae Busch figurines you speak of part of this particular set that I've described? I've found out that these are actually made of metal. There are 55 sets in total [44 sets 2 & 11 sets of 3]. I'm saving my money to buy them. They're awesome, but very expensive! Shocked

Thanks. Yes, those are the ones. A fantastic set. Various versions of these sets usually pop up on ebay every few days.

I can wholeheartedly recommend these figurines. They are produced by a company called Unicorn Miniatures in Tyne and Wear. The proprietor is Rob Armstrong.

I bought my first set at the Stan Laurel 100th birthday bash in Ulverston in 1990. 17 years later, I now have 23 sets.

Rob's a fine fella as well.

By the way, I'm not Rob's manager or agent, but if you send me a pm, I'll be glad to send you an address for you to obtain a full price list.

Thanks Andy. I have Rob's contact info. Now it's just a matter of saving money for the set. They cost about $2-2,500 U.S. for the complete set. There are 55 sets in total. BTW, does he make figurines of other classic comedians as well?
