As far as I know, most older CollectA/Epixx are marked "Procon"  scratch

Hello Alvaro,
very beautiful knights.
I do not collect animals, but knights, romans, fantasy figures, etc. in 90 mm size ( the same size of BBI figures )
I have a special love for BBI knights and romans, because they are very realistic. I have a lot of them...
In one of your photo there is a red knight ( perhaps a crusader ) with poleaxe.
This knight exist as standard on the bbi catalog as a templar knight on horse, that in is white, not in red and it has a lance with a little flag, not a poleaxe
Do you have also the horse of this figure ?
I am very interested about this figure...
Best regards
Stefano.

Hello Hawkins,
beautiful figures. I have them all and I search others ( they are discontinued ) to enlarge my army.
They are by Schleich and by BBI.
The white knights are all crusaders of the teutonic order, a german religious military order of the middle age. They appear as teutonic crusaders because of the white tunic, gold cross and the crested helm.
The red knight is a french, because of the lily, the simbol of France in the middle age.
The Schleich serie of the lilies knights represent french knights, but I do not know why Schleich made them red, because the tipical colour of french knights was blue ( the flag of france was blue with one or more lilies in gold or other colours ).
The Schleich serie of the lions knights represent english knights, because they have the lion simbol , that was the simbol of England during the middle age. I do not understand why Schleich made them blue and yellow, because the tipical colour of english knights was red or red and Yellow ( the flag of England was red with three yellow lions ).
Lions and lilies are opposite armies, because France and England fighted for more than 100 years ( the 100 years war ).
Best regards
Stefano.

Hello Suzanne and all,
the situation is not clear at all.
In Europe they were sold as Epixx by Revell. When these figures were available, the Revell web site had a section dedicated to them.
In USA they were sold by Blue Box Toys as BBI. Some of the figures are also today in the BlueBox Toys web catalog.
Years ago I saw on the web some figure card market Comansi ( + BBI, if I remember well ).
If I remember well, the majority of the figures I bought ( here in Europe ) had the card marked BBI ( when I buy a new figure, the first thing I do is to unbox it and to put the box in the garbage...).
Examining some of my knight figures, some are not marked at all, some are marked under the feet ( made in China and BBI ).
To complicate the things, Blue Box Toys sold only on the american market some special colours french and english knights, that were not available on the european market. I have only two of them and I need a lot of them to complete my english and french armies of the 100 years war...
The official production ended some years ago, but an italian firm continues a limited production of the romans and of the knights ( not the whole original ranges, but there is not an official catalog to exactly know).
Best regards
Stefano.
Note: if someone want to sell his / her roman, knight and fantasy figures by BBI / Epixx I will be very happy to recruite them for my ever expanding armies...

Hello boys and girls,
I have two new chapters about this argument.

The first is that there are some out of catalog BBI figures, that are colour variations. To my knowledge:
n.3 fantasy figures
n.1 knight ( the red crusader of the image by Alvaro ).
The fantasy figures are / were sold in italian shops under the trademark BBI and the name of the distributor ( Energy Toys - Rome - Italy ) stamped on the box.
I purchased two and I wait to purchase the third, that is the ork in red version. This figure is wonderfull, as his "twin", the standard green one.
The knight is a crusader with a red tunic and yellow cross on the shield, that you can see in an image posted in this topic by Alvaro.
In the Alvaro' s image this knight is on foot.This figure can stay as on foot as on a horse ( like Papo knights ).
BBI sold it in sets with other standard colour figures. I think these sets were for the US market, I have never seen them if not on the web. The knight has his horse with tunic in the same colours. The weapon is a lance with a little red flag, instead of a hellbard, as in Alvaro' s image.

The second is that some weeks ago I discovered BBI knights copies in an italian shop. I purchsed three.
They are cheap. I payed them 3 € each, instead of the normal price of the original BBIs, that here in Italy costs 5-8 € each ( foot figures ).
The box is similar to the BBI one, but without the name of the producer stamped on and an adhesive with the name of the italian importer.
The figures seems to be the exactly the same of the BBIs, also about the colours, but made with a very low quality plastic and badly Painted. Something to avoid to purchase. I wasted my money, but I was curious to "study" these copies.

Best wishes
Stefano.
