What the heck are these?

I've had these for years and tried off and on to find out who made them and what they are called, but no luck at all.  I think they were made in the 1980s, but maybe the 1990s or both.  They are made of rubber and have holes in their butts for pencils.  The little dragon is fairly ordinary looking, but the mutant centaur birdman is one of the weirdest figures of all time.  So, does anybody know anything solid about these guys?









While we are at it, what are these guys?

  1. I had/have the dragon one in pink. I seem to recall getting it for a birthday present (probably in the mid to late 80's), with a pencil attached already.

  4. I've been looking for these for years, so I wish I had the name and maker, too. The only thing I know about them is that some say "Hong Kong." If anyone has any to part with, I'd love to buy them. (Email is malinablue@aol.com)

  5. Hello, I've been following your blog for a long time. Since childhood, I love plastic soldiers. I have some still from the cradle, the 80's and others that I bought later. More than that, I write to thank for the blog. I recently started modeling plastic toy soldiers and used their blog a lot as a reference and inspiration. And one more thing, are you aware of Brazilian plastic toy soldiers?

  6. Thanks for the kind words. I have a few Brazilian figures, but no real depth of knowledge. Are there any good resources on the web?

  7. Unfortunately not. We Brazilians are terrible with history and memory. I research occasionally on the subject and it is very difficult to get any information. Too bad we had a few things here but very interesting. Like those sugar bags that played soccer. Launched in 1986. By the way, this is my blog.
