My set is missing one figure. Any ideas for figures that are the same scale that work well as a replacement?

My only idea was to check out some sports themed miniatures for model railroading.

Martian Metals made the figures. The 15mm Traveller figures are still around on discount sites, the same scale as the Grav Ball figs. Not sure when or if Martian Metals is still in business or which company ended up with the molds. I got the complete set of Traveller figs in 1981.

The model railway N gauge isn't the same scale. 15mm (the Grav Ball figs) is a popular miniature gaming scale and there are numerous Sci-Fi figures out there that could be replacements.

I used some old electric football figures (without the base).

I will check out the martian metal metal figs.

I never thought about using the electric football figs that is an exelent idea.

Thanks for the advice.

That's what I used when I used to own the game in the early 80s.
