So today I received the parcel I was expecting Very Happy I bought it off Marktplaats, the Dutch auction site. My eye fell on the metal case in which six of the figurines were originally sold, but when I saw what was included, I immediately contacted the seller. I'm really happy everything went well and that they arrived safely today! cheers Here are the goodies I'm talking about:

This was the metal case that caught my eye, for I know Papo released mini figurines in such cases in the past

Fortunately, all the six original Papo mini horses were included!

But wait, there's more! This wonderful package included some more horses. Not of Papo or any of the major brands, but they go very well with the small Papo Mini horses! Included in the package were no less than 13 [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Micro Minis! I still have one set of GC Micro Mini Quarter Horses from my childhood, but it's awesome to have some others now as well, because I'm just in love with their size!

And to make everything even better, I found some other childhood animal figurines, which I think are from Grand Champions sets as well (larger scale, probably from the GC Mini series):

The Papo ones are numbered the same as the Club Earth horses. They are also marked the same, 'breed' with 'China' underneath.

This forum was surely missing Julie and her super abilities! These last posts are a kind of double topic with a huge interest. I hardly could notice that Papo mini horses were the same as Club Earth and it is clear in this thread. It shows how this industry works and how lots of moulds are marketed under several brand names. Lots of surprises to be found meanwhile.
About the Grand Champions, I once visited a website about their series and immediately I ran aways from it once when I noticed, I was lost in the middle of millions of horses. Laughing

Haha, thank you, dear Roger! cheers Always a pleasure to be on the hunt for figurines, information about them and sharing it with my fellow collectors Smile

I find it interesting to see Papo used those rather simple molds for their horses whilst their other Mini figurines are clearly made by Papo itself. Why didn't they sculpt their own Mini horses? scratch The horses from the Mini Farm series show us that they sure are capable of producing small horse figurines!

Haha, I can understand why you ran away from Grand Champions! All the pink and the amount of horses scare me now as well, but I used to love it when I was younger. I'm not a big fan of the horses with the fake hair, but I'm still in love with their tiny, solid plastic Micro Minis (even more than in the past) Smile
