† Footnotes:

50009 Possibly inspired by fictional detective Charlie Chan’s career spanned 1928-1947.
50011 Modelled after the 1967 Famed Film model; Sasquatch is the Canadian version of the Yeti, which in the Lovecraftian Mythos would be the Wendigo, or Voormis. This figure could also serve as a Star Wars Wookie.
50012 The very real villain Jack the Ripper (50012), who murdered prostitutes in 1888 London. See also footnote for 50059.
50021 Cody’s (50021) “Buffalo Bill's Wild West” show toured the U.S., Great Britain and Europe from 1883 to 1908. Of the personality attractions was Chief (50113?) Sitting Bull.
50023 "Doc" Holliday (1851 – 1887) was a dentist turned gambler who fought on the side of Wyatt Earp and his kin at the 1881 gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona.
50039 The Gug is a Lovecraftian Dreamlands monster.
50051 Nothing at all like a Replicant hunter from a 1982 film.
50054 Fictional hero of 1770's California.
50059, 50060 Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s London-based sleuth Sherlock Holmes (50059) held his fictional career from 1880 to 1914. He was accompanied by his sidekick Dr. John Watson (50060). Often set against the very real villain Jack the Ripper (50012), who murdered prostitutes in 1888 London.
50065 Similar to the hero of a series of Australian post-apoc films released in 1979, 1981, and 1985.
50066 From Olley’s Armies Hellsbile Zombies, by licence from Bob Olley.
50069 See footnote for 5066.
50072 First use of this American symbol was during the War of 1812.
50079 From H.G. Wells’ The Invisible Man, written 1897.
50091 See footnote for 5066.
50093 Perhaps inspired by James Bond’s Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
50105 This American frontiersman was engaged in this occupation around the year 1806.
50106 This uniform was in use in Britain from 1863-1948.
50109 Inspired by James Bond Goldfinger’s Oddjob with his killing hat?
50113 See footnote for 50021.
50114 The Chupacabra is a modern day legend among Latino populations in the Americas.
50119 Style of dress is appropriate for the 1848 California or 1896-8 Klondike (Yukon) gold rushes.
50135 Famed philosopher Socrates lived c. 469 BC–399 BC, sentenced to death by poison hemlock.
50168 This would make a wonderful Creature from the Black Lagoon.
50170 Possibly inspired by the fictional evil mastermind, Fu Manchu, whose career spanned 1880-1940.
50187 A modern melding of the cartoon characters Dick Dastardly and Snidely Whiplash? Check out how closely Ridolfi’s RCMP officer was released.
50192 The Scout hats indicate current day uniforms only.
50195 This uniform was in use from 1897 to at least 1904, but not after 1910 and so must be not RCMP but its precursor, the NWMP. The uniform is exactly as was worn in Dawson at the height of Yukon’s Klondike Gold Rush of 1896-8. The NWMP became RCMP in 1920, but at this time, the breeches were riding breeches - with bulges at the hips, so to be accurate, this figure would have to be remodelled to be used for the 1920's. Note also how close in time Ridolfi’s Smedley Cloverdash (50187) sculpt was released, leading one to believe that perhaps this figure was inspired by the antithetical cartoon character Dudley Do-Right; and indeed, at the time of this edit, among the tags for this figure on the Reaper webstore is the name “Dudley.”
50202, 50203 Suspiciously like the agents “K” and “J” from the film M.I.B.
50207 The Krampus is a nasty companion to Santa Claus.
50208 The modern day Santa Claus was established in 1773.
50217 This figure looks suspiciously like the Pulp era vigilante known as “The Shadow.” Was it the inspiration? Only “the Shadow knows.”
50226 There are no listings for this product code on the website, the CasketWorks catalog, or the NIC’d catalog at the time of this edit.
50230 Jules Verne’s fictional character Nemo (aka Prince Dakkar) sailed his voyages of the Nautilus from 1865-1867 or 1866 -1868 (explanation here).
50237 A similar hero appeared in 1912 pulp magazines.
