#543 SMURFS - VARIOUS FIGURES (1969, 1970, 1971, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977 and 1978)

In a previous entry I summarized the history of the smurf plastic figures by Schleich and Bully. Until now I owned 3 figures from Schleich (the king and two aboriginal Smurfs), but later I bought a lot of around 20 figures, all of which I´d like to present in this entry.
This time, all of them are marked Bully, and represent models made between 1969 and 1977. I have got another king Smurf and another aboriginal Smurf, so I can compare the marking on the bases, and how similar they are. Apart from a slight colour shade variations, the figures are identical.




So, using my Smurf Figure guide (#428), I have classified this lot according to the release year of each figure, and this is how I want to present them here:

1969 and 1970:

Astronaut and Smurf with Scarf (1969)
Laughing Smurf (1970) (needs to be cleaned)




1973:

Wild Smurf
King Smurf
Smurf with wings
Cook
Mocking Smurf
Physician/ Doctor






1971 and 1974:

Smurfette (1971)
Beer Smurf (1974)
Funny Smurf (1974)




 
1975:

Sitting Smurf
Upside-down Smurf



1976: (complete, only three figures this year, leaving out variants)

Painter Smurf
Clown
Ski Smurf



My clown figure was "Made in Portugal". Portuguese figures seem a bit rarer to find.

1977 and 1978:

Swimming Smurf (1977)
Accident Smurf (1978)
