Ohhh damn, they copied my idea for a species but did an infinitely better model than mine! I absolutely love it and if it's enough cheap I maybe should substitute my own model of the species by this one...

P. D. Do you have a link for the page where the figure is sell? I've tried to find it myself using the name of the chinese shop you wrote (i'ts TaoBao, where I already bought CBIOV figures), but I was unable to find nothing.

闲鱼 is a branch of TaoBao that specialises in second hand stuff, and is quite tricky to navigate. Especially since I dont think theres a desktop version available, only available in app form.

The large one (50cm) is being quoted at 1080 RMB, around 156 USD. No info on whether or not it comes painted and assembled. No info on prices for smaller options, which come in 25cm, 30cm, 35cm and 40cm.

I'm currently hesitant on ordering due to 2 sellers on the site using the exact same photos as seen below, just with a different signature at the bottom right corner. Dunno if both are legit, or if one of them is running a scam.
Here are the shop names of the 2 sellers:
闲鱼@小河马1983
闲鱼@zhangkaiqu1

There should be a link to taobao... I ordered from there once through a desktop, it should have a link somewhere

Because I want to know more

Does anyone recognise the company for either of these two miniature figures? (Each is a different company)



The crab, by the way, has been put aside for @bmathison1972 if he decided he wants it.

Someone suggested it looked like a yeti crab, and that let to me finding this close match (Fisher Price). It even has the smily face. But it isn't an exact match. A variant maybe: https://www.amazon.com/Octonauts-Fisher-Price-Creature-Pack/dp/B07YMQ2829

I found this outside my house on the ground just now. It might be from when I was a kid or it might have been left there more recently (maybe even less recently. Who knows?) It's fixed to a base that's another piece of plastic that looks like it broke off at some point.

I never realised the Octonauts released a yeti crab figure, but I remember the episode with it in  :)
Don't I take long uploading photos!

It makes me think Toy Major but I'm guessing there is no TM circled on its base

There is actually, but thought that was trademark. Never heard of Toy major before.

Hi!

I've bought this figurine in a set with Schleich and Papo figurines, but it hasn't any mark so I don't know the brand and the crocodile type. Can anyone help me?

Hmm, I don't recognise it but someone here may do, it is quite distinctive.

Welcome to the forum, by the way! We have a thread for figure IDs so I'll move your post there for you. :)

Does anyone know who makes this plush stuffed beagle?

Sorry if I am posting this in the wrong place, but I am looking to find the manufacturer for this stuffed beagle from when I was a kid.  Any ideas, or any suggestions on better threads/forums to post this?  Thanks!

@jytou85 is our new plush expert; maybe they can tell you!

There is a manufacturer identification thread. I will move this to that.

Not sure about the top one, but the XX on the bottom figure is the logo for Wing Mau (it's a 'W' on top of an 'M').

Hey guys, recently did a post of some old toy animals I've found. Here's  a whale shark with no brand logo I can discern from looking from the Toy Animal Wiki. All the bottom says is ''Made in China''. All I can say is that all the fins have these fin-rays that aren't supposed to be there.

Who made the American Paddlefish on the right? I found this pic on @sbell 's blog.
And how large is that Chinese Paddlefish figure?

The blog should have said (oops)...but it's a small run resin from Japan from a company called My Favorite. There's a few interesting ones, but it's the must have for me!

@brettnj  might have a link, I can't find it
