Yes, wasn't it though? cheers

Roger, at a guess, it is supposed to be a killifish, one of the annuals most likely- they have some wild colors and patterns, and I believe they were fairly popular aquarium fish in Europe in the '60s.

How cute! He does go very nicely with the pup fish (and I really love the Yowie fish, hope they keep making new species). What a great find. cheers

Got a few things at a flea market last weekend and a couple thrift stores:

Assortment of makes- Safari, Schleich, a PV frog, a couple Treehouse Kids Labrador retreivers, a bunch of Hong Kong figures (haven't seen those since I was a kid!), others I don't remember offhand and no-name makes, plus a few makes I'm unfamiliar with.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Edit to add this no name (not even China) but cool jointed guy, has lower jaw flips down too
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This Holstein is stamped just 'Kerry'. Stablemate horse sized.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This horse (Stablemate sized, and a decent looking figure) is stamped 'Marchon Inc 1993 China'.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This Breyer Family Arabian Stallion knockoff is Stablemate sized, marked 'Nylint'. Don't they make model trucks? If so I suppose this guy was an accessory to a truck/trailer set.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And finally, a Breyer woodie! I will probably try to sell him, but am enjoying him first.

Fantastic additions and a lot to find out! Thanks for providing what is marked, USA toy industry is quite rich, mainly during 1990's but we are not very well documented about them.
Your decent horse marked Marchon is a Grand Champions figure, please [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and you can find more info through links provided on it.
You can also find on TAI some info about [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] although it is quite poor yet.
The friendly looking creature Laughing looks somewhat like these therapsid protomammals,, surely an action figure like those JP, Sean maybe knows about it. study
Others are much probably complements to vehicle sets but we need to find more about that. Wonderful Breyer horse too! Very Happy

Wow! This is a very nice set of figures. Congratulations!

I think your creature with the articulated legs and jaw is a Dicynodont, which is a therapsid as Roger correctly pointed out. I couldn't tell you the name of the company, or the exact species, but it is a really cool and unique figure.

Thanks! After some scrubbing, I found '2005 Unimax' on an inner leg. I like him whatever the case!

Andreas, there is no mark- not even China- on the rattlesnake that I can see. my eyes are bad though.

You're probably right, Taylor. I figure a great many of these oddball figures are probably accessories to vehicle or action hero sets.

Roger, are there any figures you're curious to know about? Let's see, the kangaroo is Topps, there are a couple U.S. Yowies Series 1, the small sharks are SeaWorld...

After seeing a photo in the Search forum, I'm wondering about one of my Hong Kong finds. It is marked just 'Made in Hong Kong' on the recessed bottom. Could this be an Azur? It's a stretch, but not impossible- I live near Disney, and we get a lot of international visitors and immigrants here.

Yes it could be Azur. But i believe that figurines was sold by different names, like Nayab today. And thank you for the answer :)

With markings life is easier! Laughing
Your dino is from some action figure sets called Dino Warriors released by Unimax in 2005.
The creatures represented apparently are not based in real prehistoric creatures but the figure you are presenting is usually identified as a Dinodontosaurus by collector communities. I will check later other figures and see what could be of use for TAI but, meanwhile, if you spot anything missing there, just let us know. Very Happy

I liked the looks of one of the new Schleich dragons in a catalogue I saw, but didn't find any locally. So I bought it from H&H Winner's Circle after seeing them post it on sale. I thought it might get hungry on the trip, so I bought a AAA flying fish to go with it, what better food for aquatic dragons than flying fish? Here is the diving dragon!

Next weekend, my sister and I will be going to a huge international orchid show in South Florida. When we went 2 years ago, we also visited a big flea market that proved to have a lot of toys. I really shouldn't buy more orchids (looks like I'm going to have to move soon and I already have around 100), so I'm looking forward to hitting that flea market. I hope to have lots to show in a couple weeks.

I think it was a very good idea to get a flying fish to your dragon. Very Happy A dragonfish and a dragonfly would surely enrich the cast. Very Happy
Be aware to not get too much orchided and please let us know if you find some exciting toys in that flea market. bounce

Got back from the show and side trip to the Keys Tuesday night- here's my haul (minus an old composition tiger I found at a junk shop, I don't dare handle it much! It can be seen here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Lots of AAA, along with Safari (makes sense in Miami, no?) and Schleich, a handful of K&M, a couple Seaworlds, and Chinamals I just liked. No Breyers this time! Some I plan on keeping, most would be happy in new homes.

OH, I'd love to grind a little your new additions. You always find so many interesting figures and often some that may help us solving some little toy animal misteries.
Is there any chance that you make closer pictures with brand groups that I can see what you have got in a clearer way?
For example, among many interesting things, I see a bear (under the bongo), this bear, I am almost sure, was presented as a new release on 2004 Wild Republic catalogue for their large figures series. Some of these figures, look just AAA. Could you please check how is that bear marked? Very Happy

Thanks everyone! I like the brachiosaurs also, and have had the smilodon sitting on my nightstand the past couple nights- he better move on fast or he's in danger of staying. Laughing He might just love the Netherlands after the south Florida heat. Laughing Wink

Roger, I will break things into groups and take better pictures as soon as I get some time. There are also a couple interesting markings (frog over the octopus is 1991 D.M., for instance). In the meanwhile, the bear is indeed marked AAA. Here are a couple pictures of it (bear cub is also AAA).

Which mean its not a real dinosaur.   I boght a couple of these back in 2005, but i lost them to my childhood, and now there very hard to find. However, I dont expect maney people to know what these things reallly are, since the line was not really popular.

And that glorious orchid cheers

The purple starfish, - is it Safari ? We miss a picture of it in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ( Item no 277029 near the bottom ). Very Happy

Thank you, Susanne! The orchid says thanks also, it's still in bloom.

The starfish is indeed stamped 1999 Safari. I will get a picture of it as soon as I can and post it, so that it can be taken for TAI if you wish. I just tried, but my flash makes it look awful and it's dark now. I still have to find time to take better pictures for Roger!

Thanks, Takama! It's a neat figure I think, fantasy or not. I like fantasy too. (at least dragons) I may keep an eye out for the others now.

Hmm, dragonflies and dragonfish, there's a neat idea. I already have a fair China dragonfly, and I think the deep sea Safari toob has a dragonfish, no? I am getting that toob soon.

I think it was determined somewhere to be Austrolebias nigripinnis, the Blackfin Pearl Fish. It's a rivuline, which are related to killis.

Thanks for telling what is marked in these bears. It is interesting because Wild Republic large figures seems to mix moulds marked K&M with other moulds marked AAA in the same series. We never found an AAA mould marked K&M and all figures of that series marked K&M we never found them being sold as AAA. Laughing The bear cub is not in that catalogue but it was probably introduced later. Interesting also about the D.M. 1991 frog, it is not the first time we see a D.M. marked figure, I guess, but we never figured out what it means. These lots are always a box of surprises. Very Happy

Roger, I mean to get pictures of the frog also as soon as I can. I took this picture of the starfish if Susanne would like to use it for TAI, but I think the light angle is bad. I had to leave early and it was after dark when I got home, sorry!

After my internet has been out the past several days, I finally got pictures up of the frog for you, Roger. Feel free to use them if you'd like.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

From the same fleamarket vendor I purchased the AAA orangutan, I found this baby. As well as they match, maybe they are intended as mother and baby.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The collie has no stamp of any sort. Here he is with some of my other dogs. I think perhaps they're all accessories to dolls/action figures; I'm pretty sure the terrier is a Toto from a Wizard of Oz Barbie doll, and the papillon originally sold with a Justin Beiber doll.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

These mini figures- a bit smaller than toob figures, and with a detailed paint job for the size- are stamped Busch Gardens on the figures as well. There are multiples of the shown figures in the case, the tigers especially. (only 1 gorilla and a few giraffes) I'm 100 miles/ a couple hours from Busch Gardens here, so perhaps one day I'll get to go there and see what else they sell. I'd be interested in selling this whole set.
I did stop at Lion Country Safari when I went south a couple weeks ago (a drive through wildlife park near Palm Beach that my mom often took us to when I was a child); they had Safari figures, Wild Republic toobs and playsets, and 1 AAA figure (big lioness with 3 cubs).

Thankyou for the pictures Very Happy

Those dogs are all wonderful, - I love the face of the papillon, and the cairn terrier is ever so charming !
The rottwieler is the old type with longer nose, which is like a lot, and the collie is really lifelike Very Happy

Those Bush Garden models are fine too !!! Very Happy

I have been off and on looking for this figure for awhile now so I'm very happy- but even more so at how good people can be, even after all the horrible stuff you see on the news etc.

I've shown photos on here before of the dragon/fantasy sculptures that are my first adult collecting love. It is a small family owned company that makes them, and they maintain a strong relationship with their fans. The wonderful lady who sent me the seadragon after seeing I was hunting one is their artist/founder. She also sent me my first Yujin goldfish as gifts after I posted a question about them (this is before I found this forum). This company raffles off a free sculpture every month, has donated them to charity raffles and as forum-game prizes and pick-me-ups for members going through a hard time, and sends us specially made Christmas cards every year. They're good people.

Congratulations. It's a great figure of a great animal! It's too bad that they didn't design it to somehow stand properly! confused

But it is more stable than the similar weedy sea dragon figure

Yes- I just have it laying on its side at the moment. Too bad some sort of base wasn't fashioned for it, or sculpted on it, or splayable wired lower appendages or something. I was thinking of either trying to stiffen some aquarium plants as a base for it (glue maybe?) or look into some small branches and silk plants. I guess I could make something, but I'm not that confident of my skills on a larger scale like this.

hmm, I'll be back in the Keys next week, maybe I can find some good driftwood and/or coral/sponges/sea fans. There's lots of little nooks where stuff washes up where I'll be.

I haven't picked up the weedy yet, I still see it in stores so I keep putting it off. I need to get off my fanny and buy it. If I see some good base material, I'll pick up enough for two figures.

I just repurposed a small plastic cup to hold them up...but a small Sculpey stand could work.

Or maybe the Safari Sunfish stand!

The sunfish is a someday-want too, the one whale watch I've been on we saw no whales but encountered about 20 sunfish. My teacher kept saying they were unusual, but it was like there was a Mola party going on. This was in the Gulf of Maine, off Casco Bay. They were very interesting (and large) animals.

You'll have to hurry. The figure has been retired. I think I still have one in my store though.
