Benbros Wild West 
Benbros Toy produced from 1951-1965. Started by Nathan and Jack Benninson  at Benbros (London) Ltd. 145 Gosport Road, Walthamstow, London

Figures were produced from about 1951 till sometime in the mid 60's.

The hollow-cast figures included the wonderful Robin Hood set, which is difficult to find complete and a very good range of mounted detachable wild west figures. The cowboy figures are often confused with Timpo. Try putting a Benbros Wild Bill Hickok side by side with a Timpo Buffalo Bill and a Charbens Buffalo Bill to appreciate the differences.
