These figures were produced at the height of ‘Beatlemania’. Each model was individually boxed for fans to assemble with printed instructions: ‘A few simple pieces, a few dabs of paint and John (Paul/George/Ringo) will be your own!’ They wear the collarless suits, Chelsea ‘Beatle’ boots, and ‘moptop’ hairstyles that became the group’s signature look during their early fame.
