Adolf Hitler action figure with adjustable saluting arm sold at auction


The rare models – including one of Eva Braun and a set of Nazi paramilitaries – were produced from 1935 to 1944



It was the must-have toy for kids in Nazi Germany...

And this Adolf Hitler figure even came with an adjustable right arm for Sieg Heil salutes.

The rare models – including one of Eva Braun, a set of Nazi paramilitaries and a wooden HQ – were produced from 1935 to 1944.

The figures were made out of sawdust and plaster but were delicate and few have survived.





The Hitler collection sold for £5,801 at Aston’s in Dudley, West Midlands, while the HQ set went for £1,202 at Vectis Auctions, Stockton-on-Tees, Co Durham.

Chris Aston said: “It was propaganda, getting children involved and into the Hitler Youth.”
