First CollectA figures are from 2006 and in 2008 they retired a foal. Actually they replaced it with a different number and painting but kept the mould. study

Thanks, Roger and Takama sunny
Does anybody know where do the names like Epoxx, Procon and RSPCA fit in ? scratch

I have ones with those names on the tag( and Natures Wonder), - and lots are marked Procon.

Some even have tags with both Procon and Collecta on them Shocked

Correction :
Ups ! I just saw on Toywiki that Procon is the Parent compagny

Although who opened the topic doesn't look interested anymore it is a pleasure to know that the info is interesting for you.
As you noticed, Procon is the name of the parent company and Nature's Wonder the name of the line of animals that was only cmposed of some of the 2006 figures later available under name CollectA.
I suppose you mean Epixx, like it happens with AAA, if I'm not wrong, some brands use CollecttA figures and sell under their names. Epixx is an example and Gulliver does the same in Brazil. I am not sure, if someone has a better answer I would also be interested in to know. Very Happy

I am VERY interested to learn more, but this is already very helpfull cheers

So, to recapitulate ...please correct me, I am probably wrong ) :

The owner is Procon, who launched the animals in 2006 under the name Procon.
In ???year ? the name CollectA took over as the brand name

They have been sold under several names in the years 2006?? to 20xx??

Germany : Epixx
USA : Nature`s wonders
? UK ? : RSPCA

More ? bounce bounce

Gulliver : Russia

About Gulliver in Russia I don't know anything. scratch
Gulliver is a Brazilian brand of toys that produced some little plastic animals like these you can see in a Brazilian auction site:

They are distributing CollectA in Brazil under a different name and another line of large animals that is not related with CollectA nor even with these vintage figures here linked. Anyway, the website of the company, is clear saying that it was a brand founded in Brazil and talk about lines from which these little animals belonged. study The vintage line is called Misterious Africa! Suspect afro
