FARLEY'S FIGURE OF THE WEEK: #138 "New Years Resolutions"

I'm calling this one "New Year's Resolutions!" What we have here is a sweet little traditional gloss toy soldier from TedToy Miniatures. This 54mm Union soldier looks to be intently jotting down his resolutions for 2017.  Ya know...New Year’s resolutions are a bit like babies: They’re fun to make but extremely difficult to maintain. A recent study showed that each January, roughly one in three Americans resolve to better themselves in some way. A much smaller percentage of people actually make good on those resolutions. While about 75% of people stick to their goals for at least a week, less than half (46%) are still on target six months later. It's hard to keep up the enthusiasm months after you've swept up the confetti. 

Ted Deddens and TedToy miniatures has graced the pages of FOTW several times now. His whimsical style of traditional styled soldiers has long been a favorite of mine. Sadly TedToy has recently been mothballed as Ted has moved on to work at W Britains as their operations manager. Rumors swirl that at some point the TedToy banner will be folded into the Britains orbit. One can only hope! I say good riddance to 2016 and soldier on to 2017!
