Hi! Last year, I talked about how National Geographics Society worked with Playvisions to sell figures Under their names. I posted my whales National Geographics blister card to prove it. I told you about other sets that were once sold (1999?) in Toys'R'Us. There were sets with only small figures, but there were sets that included a large figure along with two small ones.

Lately, I found, on EBay, I was able to buy one of those "one big fig-two small figs" set: "Predators", with the picture of a tiger. The set included the large Playvisions Tiger, the small Playvisions Serval and the small Playvisions Cougar. Other sets like this are visible on the back of the blister card.

Archaheology in pure state. cheers
Vallérie, it is very interesting and obviously I will complete the information on Toy Animal Wiki according with what you are presenting. A primitive page is already created, later I'll add more information and the blister pictures here presented. Very Happy

Wow, these are amazing finds! It makes me wish they were still producing figures like this. I've never even seen the big Play Visions before.

I am planning to buy the Bears set next month. I bought my Félines set on EBay as well, and the others are in my Watch List. Man! If only I could find the large Playvisions Bowhead Whale...

Oh! By the way, in the Imperial thread, I also added my bean bag Manta Ray blister card. On it, we can see all the other figures of the bean bag series.

Of course! But I cut the bubble off instead of tearing it from the card. This way, the card remains intact and the figures are loose. I get best of both worlds.

You've found again another little treasure. I just added your pictures of the cards [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
I know you're doing a big effort to get these sets but I am sure they worth it. Very Happy
Could you please only confirm if the fox is marked number 2 and year 1996? As far as I know, these National Geographic sets are later releases. scratch

There still is Something that bothers me: on EBay, there is a Bears set still on sale, Mint On Card. And you know what? THE BACK OF THE CARD IS DIFFERENT FROM MINE. As a matter of fact, the card still on sale on EBay shows more sets than mine shows. For example, I see a set including a sea turtle plus two other animals I cannot identify for sure (picture is two small). What should I do? I'm not interested in having figures in double. But this blister card really is Something. What if someone else on this forum buys it and puts the card on TAI? But I cannot force anyone to buy it just to satisfy my curiosity...
