I recently received a small rubber Emperor Newt (or Mandarin Salamander) from an eBay lot and it's marked Great Explorations China 1995. It's not the best quality figure, but it's a neat representation of a pretty notable amphibian. I've seen knock-offs of this mold that are glittery and with no maker's mark.. so I assume this is the original.

Has anyone ever heard of this brand before?

Hi MolarLion Very Happy
I don`t think we have "met" before ?

They did a great job in my opinion, - and a lot of work making it green and then painting it all over Shocked

It is lovely, I would not mind owning one, but I don`t have any knowledge of the brand. I am no expert.

Hello Molarlion!
Thanks for the picture, unless the number of toes are correct! :)

I couldn't find anything on the internet about this brand either, so for now it stays a mystery... Rolling Eyes scratch
