Preiser took over a lot of activities of Hausser in 1981.
First it seemed that the whole range would continue. Almost all the figures were mentioned on the price list. There were even some new figures in the Elastolin style made by Preiser. Especially the Prussian infantry is very good.
But problems started soon. Production costs for the siege equipment were to high. They were mentioned in the Preiser catalogues but came never into production. More and more traditional figures disappeared from the price list.
Especially in the better German toy stores you can find some Elastolin figures made by Preiser. They are sold in small boxes and are still hand painted. You can download the Preiser catalogue here.
