Mattel was the American distributor for Chinese made Yu Gi Oh figures in 2003 - 2004. The figures themselves are marked "96 KT" on the bottom and most are also marked "Takahashi" somewhere on the body. They came in single and three packs (in the USA anyway). They are made of plastic and range from 45mm to 60mm. These are associated with the cartoon and the game and all other things Yu Gi Oh. They are all characters in the game and have individual names, but I'm not that interested in the game. I have selected the figures that work best as fantasy toy soldiers. Some of them work magnificently.
