AAA LTD: Mythology Figures

I have not found much information about AAA Ltd., but they seem to have specialized in high quality animal toys that were mostly sold in museum and zoo gift shops.  I have not found any information about this set of mythology figures, but my guess would be that they came in a tube.  There seem to be 9 figures, but I don't know for certain that have a complete set. These figures are made of a soft rubber like material and fit in well with tube figures like the Groovy Tubes, Safari & Plastoy tubes. The giant is the largest figure at about 55mm.

Is it just me or are these guys hula dancing?

My 45mm Army

One of the things I love about the DFC figure set is that they are not all the same size.  The monsters are larger than the knights and wizards.  Most of the human figures in the set are 45mm, while the monsters range from 45mm to 60mm. I like the difference.  DFC set the standard for 45mm human fantasy warriors and there are lots of traditional 45mm toy soldier knights, vikings, romans, ninjas and other figures that can join in the fun.   I have put together my own 45mm army of figures to help those DFC knights.   I have picked a lot of different figure lines for my army, but only those I actually like.  The new Toy Major knights did not make the list because I don’t like them much.   I have also left out rare stuff like Rubenstein figures because they are too expensive for army building.   So, here is my 45mm army:
