K&M - rare or less known/unknown figures Empty
PostSubject: K&M - rare or less known/unknown figures   K&M - rare or less known/unknown figures EmptySun Nov 11, 2018 2:31 pm

This year I was able to get some K&M figures I never saw before - and I wanted to share these pictures here (even if some of these are already on TAI). Will add more soon that are still on their way.
Of some I was aware of their existance before (like the wyoming toad or the big sifaka), so they are not really "unknown" but think it is worth to show them here, too.
K&M has so many unknown and surprising treasures to unearth besides the rather well known tubes and bulks, that's what makes this brand so fascinating to me. Finding an unknown figure is like winning a lottery. cheers  (and I am always happy if I am pointed to figures I don't know yet ...)


Here is my absolute favourite: Spectacled bear, marked (very tiny) with species name + latin name (Tremarctos ornatus), K&M , no year. Obviously from the big (AZA-)Series, these were marked with species and also scientific name. Maybe that one is a young, not adult figure, since it seems a bit chubby and childish. Would mean there is an adult to hunt down, too:

My latest find on a local fleamarket is this lovely flying fox, marked only "Bat China K&M INT", material rather rubberish like the toad or the dragon

Wyoming toad, same mould like the african bullfrog, but different painting and mark: "Wyoming Toad China K&M INT" (little correction - the feet are different, so not exactly the same mould)

Here is the African bullfrog:

A jelly fish, marked "Jellyfish K&M INT"

this beluga is already on TAI, but think it was never shown here on the forums, so it might be of interest:

A komodo dragon made from similar rubberish material as the toad (have to check about its marking)

big Sifaka from the madagascar polybag - and surprisingly it is not hollow, despite the seam on its belly but massive rather hard rubber material:

have also this big cockroach from the same polybag, also massive:

for these maybe someone has an idea to which series they belong?

this orang utan baby, marked "Orangutan 2008 K&M INC" (indeed INC not INT), I don't know if it is from a tube or what else (more unknown K&M orangs to come soon)

little moray eel (maybe a pencil topper?)

Will try to update my latest K&M finds here regularly cheers

Have the mooray eel a little hole for a pencil?

The others looks very large. That is what i mean in the past with any surprises. The bear could be a cub.

But very very interesting.

It is sad that informations are very hard to get.

Ok, so that is the hissing cockroach from the Polybag. I have one, but I didn't know if mine was truly from the polybag or the tube set (with nothing to compare it to). Mine must be a tube figure, since it lacks seams and does not have such a detailed paint job! Thanks.

P.S. those toads are a rare treat, indeed!

some more recent finds:
a very big octopus made from similar rubbery material like the toads.
the mark is almost not visible, but since I know how K&M marks usually look like and since in this case I already had a certain suspicion I was able to identify the very blurry mark:

big bluespotted ribbontail ray, just marked rather neutral: "Stingray" no year (maybe there are other color variations?)

a hollow not very beautiful crocodile, probably from a polybag, and probably not very rare - I place its picture here for hopefully set identification, please. The font type looks rahter unusual for K&M - it reminds me to some vintage chinese markings (just can't remember right now which brand...)
