Found a set where that deer-antelope belongs.

Someone can help me with just a description of a figurine?I can't pass the pics on the forum now.

It is a star fish with 12 legs, 7 cms diameter. Center brownish with a wider lilac-violet circle and orange legs, all the surface covered with withe little knobs. The lower face is light pink with a central darker pink line on each leg.

It's marked "CE", "BULLY" and "MADE IN CHINA on the bottom of one leg.

I searched the web with Bully, Bullyland, Star Fish and the like but didn't find anything similar.

Sounds like a Bullyland figure. They have been around for a while so it could be a retired figure, that's why you are having trouble finding it via internet searches or dealer sites that sell Bullyland.

Could it be one of these: http://www.sandspielfiguren.de/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=2_14_257

It sounds like the Bullyland sunstar, Item No 67859. Which it appears they reissued in a red repaint version as well.

Sbell thank you, that's the one!  ^-^

A nice way to open the new year!

Thanks bmathison1972, the e-shop you linked looks very interesting.

I don't own these ones, just found the pics.
A strange Chinese toy labelled deer and looking like nyala with weird horns...



And a seal with extra pair of limbs


That seal is crazy cool. I wish I knew what company made it too, as I'd love to add it to my collection.
I like turtles.

I found this pic on the internet and would like to know if someone can tell me what producer is this. Looks pretty good stuff!



On the site there's a reference to a "local GoodWill store", but this does not help me at all.

It's the Safari Ltd Dinosaurs of China, Mamenchisaurus and it is very rare.

Yes, that's the one. It wasn't even that old, in 2010 I was still able to buy one from an online store but they soon vanished afterwards.

Thanks. I found the review on dinotoyblog and other pics on the internet, but the quality of the painting looks defintely lower (darker patches neater and less realistic) and actually different colour (green instead of grey). Does it depends on the light of the picture, or from two different lots?

I honestly think it depends on the lighting and the age of the figure.

The base colour is grey, not green, at least on my figure. But the paint job appears less sloppy on that outside photo than on mine. I agree with CetaceanFan, it's probably the lighting that makes the sloppiness less obvious. Still it's a very unique figure and I like it a lot despite its crudeness. :)

Hey!

I need some help identifying the brands of these figures.


http://imgur.com/aHXwt6M

I got this lion as a kid at the doctor's office. It says Jaru on the bottom; I think that may actually be the brand name but looking online for it comes up blank.
It is one of the most detailed chinanimals that I have, and I believe it may actually be the original model that inspired that cliche chinamal lion pose.
It's tounge and canines are sculpted into it, as well as the hairs on the mane, elbow, and tail. It's nose is very well sculpted, and it's body even has the indents showing its ribs (but not in a way that makes it look starving)!

This is a colt that actually came with a set which had a larger Clydesdale in it.
Whoever made this figure must've been really lazy because the only place with fur detail is on the face, and it only covers half of it!
The mother horse didn't have a brand name (to my memory) but did have "Clydesdale" in big lettering on the bottom.
The mother horse is very similar in color to the colt, having a medium grey pelt, a grey-brown mane and tail, and white hooves.
I got this at a place in Saint Louis called Grant's Farm if that helps any! :)

I have had this figure for a long time and I believe it came from an Imaginex set but I'm not sure if it did or not. I have two of them, but the other is horribly painted white with whiteout because little me wanted to make it into an undead steed from World of Warcraft. Needless to say it did not work out right. XD

This sheep looks like it may be a happy meal toy but it doesn't have the logo.
The whole toy is devoid of any logos, copyrights, or "made in x" on it.
There is a lot of detail in the curls, but not much else after that.
The head can turn and the legs can be moved but not much.

These two figures are favorites of mine.
The cheetah seems to be more popular as I've seen people with it, but it has no logo or anything other than a microscopic "CE" under its armpit.
The tiger only has "CHINA" in big bold letters on it but that's it.
I named the cheetah Lizzia after my WoW druid character :)

I got this lion cub as a prize in third grade and I've had it ever since!
It is really poorly made and is a classic chinanimal. The lion cub shares the same model as a black cat (panther?) that was also in the prize bucket.
I don't know who made it, but I do know that the same person who made it also made a panda with yellow eyes and blue claws.
He is going to be repainted soon!

Last one!
I got these ponies from the prize bucket too. They're very tiny (all three can lay in my hand and there's still room) and adorable.
The only hint to a brand is the K with a dot over it. The only labels they have are their breed names (appoloosa, freishan, arabian).
I would like to know the brand because these are my favorite ones of all!!!

I looked it up and I believe you are right! I think he may be a Chinese mold ripoff tho!

Found this on pinterest. I recognize the Mega Sofubi Advance Blue whale, but who makes the other two? That's the best looking sperm whale I've seen and the whale shark looks fantastic too. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks.

The comments say Kaiyodo (a fantastic /but very expensive/ Japanese model maker) so I'm guessing that's it!
