Probably the most dynamic prewar toy soldiers...

These Lineol Wehrmacht attacking soldiers were designed by Albert Caasmann (June 2, 1886 – March 23, 1968). Albert Caasmann was born June 2, 1886 in Berlin, Germany. From 1909 to 1919, he worked as a freelancer for the Berlin toy company Lineol, founded by Oskar Wiederholz in 1906. After service as a soldier in the First World War, he became the leading designer and production manager of Lineol from 1919 to 1952. He designed over 600 figures for Lineol, including soldiers, animals, Indians, knights, fairy figures, and railroad figures.
