What a lucky find! Was it the same seller as the turtles? It seems that there are a lot of PV out there in Germany, animal collecting must be much more popular there than it is in North America...

Yes, the PV animals are from the same seller. They were offered with some no name figures of very poor quality under the table in a big box with a lot of other stuff.
So far, not a single seller ever thought these figures would have any value.

Andreas, there are so many flea markets and also many  special flea markets in Munich. Every weekend from Friday to Saturday. There are even sometimes " night flea markets".
With so many flea markets, the chance is good finding some very collectible figures.
But I usually only visit one flea market near our house. I go by bike very early in the morning  and stay there  for about 1 or 2 hours. On these special flea market last Saturday I
have also spend about 2 hours.
