Miniatures from the Past

Tars Tarkus from Heritage Models
Here is a site with some photos and a listing of old JCOM miniatures from Heritage Models.  Take a peak at the Tars Tarkus miniature on the right; it shows the scale next to a miniature in the upper left corner of the image: seems pretty damn big, bigger than 15 feet?

I remember seeing some of these miniatures for sale back in the early 90s' at a game/comic shop I use to haunt.  Too bad I didn't pick them up at the time.

Also, the creator of the page has a link to The Barsoomian Language; it's an interesting read.

When will someone have a range of Barsoom wargame miniatures in 15mm?

Actually heritage had two scales. The majority of the line was 25mm but they did three or four 54mm -- Tars, Carter, Dejah to be sure, one other I think (Woola? Kantos Kan?) That's the 54mm Tars there; the 25mm one did not come in pieces.
