# Hermann Goering
Hermann Wilhelm Göring (or Goering;[a] German:12 January 1893 – 15 October 1946) was a German politician, military leader, and leading member of the Nazi Party (NSDAP). A veteran of World War I as an ace fighter pilot, he was a recipient of the coveted Pour le Mérite, also known as the “Blue Max”. He was the last commander of Jagdgeschwader 1, the fighter wing once led by Manfred von Richthofen, dubbed the “Red Baron”.
A member of the NSDAP from its earliest days, Göring was wounded in 1923 during the failed coup known as the Beer Hall Putsch. He became addicted to morphine after being treated with the drug for his injuries. After helping Adolf Hitler take power in 1933, he became the second-most powerful man in Germany. He founded the Gestapo in 1933, and later gave command of it to Heinrich Himmler. Göring was appointed commander-in-chief of the Luftwaffe (air force) in 1935, a position he held until the final days of World War II. By 1940, he was at the peak of his power and influence; as minister in charge of the Four Year Plan, he was responsible for much of the functioning of the German economy in the build-up to World War II. Hitler promoted him to the rank of Reichsmarschall, a rank senior to all other Wehrmacht commanders, and in 1941 Hitler designated him as his successor and deputy in all his offices.
Göring’s standing with Hitler was greatly reduced by 1942, when the Luftwaffe failed to fulfill its commitments and the German war effort was stumbling on both fronts. Göring largely withdrew from the military and political scene and focused on the acquisition of property and artwork, much of which was confiscated from Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Informed on 22 April 1945 that Hitler intended to commit suicide, Göring sent a telegram to Hitler requesting permission to assume control of the Reich. Considering it an act of treason, Hitler removed Göring from all his positions, expelled him from the party, and ordered his arrest.
As one of the most colourfull characters of the era, Goering was featured in many Uniforms and poses and is a must for most collections hence the demand still for his figures.

# Gross Admiral Erich Raeder

RaederCompELASTOLIN – 80MM – V.F.. Ref. OH7
Großadmiral Erich Johann Albert Raeder (24 April 1876 – 6 November 1960) was a naval leader in Germany who played a major role in the naval history of World War II. Raeder attained the highest possible naval rank—that of Großadmiral (Grand Admiral) — in 1939, becoming the first person to hold that rank since Alfred von Tirpitz. Raeder led the Kriegsmarine for the first half of the war; he resigned in 1943 and was replaced by Karl Dönitz. He was sentenced to life in prison at the Nuremberg Trials, but was released early due to failing health. Raeder is also well known for dismissing Reinhard Heydrich from the Reichsmarine in April 1931 for “conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman”.
Responsible for the build-up of the German Navy. R2

 

# Field marshal Paul von Hindenberg
Paul Ludwig Hans Anton von Beneckendorff und von Hindenburg known universally as Paul von Hindenburg (2 October 1847 – 2 August 1934) was a Prussian-German field marshal, statesman, and politician, and served as the second President of Germany (1925–34).
Very few figures were made as he died in 1934 and effectively became an ‘historical’ figure, rather than a current ‘hero’ figure. R2.

# S.A. Chief of Staff Viktor Lutz.

In 1922, after the War he joined the National Socialist Party (NSDAP) and in 1933 Adolf Hitler appointed him as the chief of police of Hanover. After the assassination of Ernst Röhm in June 1934 he became the chief of staff of the Storm Troop (Sturmabteilung – SA). He was also a member of the German parliament (Reichstag). According to official reports he was killed in summer 1943 in a car accident with his daughter, but it is possible that he was assassinated like his predecessor Ernst Röhm.

(A portrait figure representing Viktor Lutze was produced by Lineol and first published in the 1935 catalogue. This figure shows Lutze in SA uniform as chief of staff standing at attention. However it seems that this figure was not very popular, because it disappeared already the following year from the Lineol catalogues. Nowadays this figure is very rare and is therefore one of the more expensive personality figures. ) R 3.

# Field Marshal von Mackensen
Anton Ludwig August von Mackensen (6 December 1849 – 8 November 1945), born August Mackensen, was a German soldier and field marshal.[3] He commanded with success during the First World War and became one of the German Empire’s most prominent military leaders. After the Armistice, Mackensen was interned for a year. He retired from the army in 1920 and was made a Prussian state councillor in 1933 by Hermann Göring. During the Nazi era, Mackensen remained a committed monarchist and sometimes appeared at official functions in his First World War uniform. He was suspected of disloyalty to the Third Reich, although nothing was proved against him at this time.

# Commander Ernst Julius Günther Röhm
Ernst Julius Günther Röhm was a German officer in the Bavarian Army and later an early Nazi leader. He was a co-founder of the Sturmabteilung, the Nazi Party militia, and later was its commander.
After his death on 1 July 1934, it became necessary to obliterate any reference to Rohm, so all extant Molds were destroyed, as indeed were large numbers of figures.
