The one-sixth-scale toy industry is largely populated with World War II figures, like these from Steve Allen's personal collection.
Steve and Margaret Allen of Bonner Springs spent hundreds of hours researching to create this prototype one-sixth-scale "toy" figure of a World War I Battle of Liege German infantryman. The prototype is the first in the Allens' planned line of World War I figures.
Steve and Margaret Allen, owners of Timewalker Toys & Collectibles, hope to have their first World War I toy available this fall.

Earlier this year, we brought you the story of Jeff Hanson, a Muscotah man building a museum out of a water tower in honor of former Chicago Cub and Hall of Famer Joe Tinker.
Tinker grew up in Muscotah, a small town in south Atchison County.
On Saturday during the town's Rose Festival, we checked in on the progress of the museum. There's been some work on the baseball, and iron "laces" have been added.
