Stan Yannetta, 58, Heaton Gardens on Benton Road, Boldon has been collecting unique fibreglass figurines since he moved into his flat 17 years ago.

The grandfather-of-five now has more than 30 in his front garden, from his favourite comics Laurel and Hardy to Rambo and John Wayne, not forgetting the gorilla on the porch roof and the leopard with the glow-in-the-dark eyes on top of the garage.

How many do you recognise?
