Over at our eBay store, we just loaded a bunch of old 2 and 3" figures we imported from Germany back in the 90's. The factory that produces these (Marolin) has been in business since the early 1900's, however during WWII the government took over the business and forced them to build compasses, and other military equipment instead of their famous miniatures.
After the war, and the unification of Germany, the family bought the factory back and found their 100 year old tooling in the basement! Production was started again, using the same techniques the their grandfather invented!
We purchased thousands of their plastic molded figures (which are like Schleich's, but these have the old world, hand painted charm that Schleich's "Made in China" do not).
So we have a bunch of them on eBay and more to be added over the next few days.
If you are interested in a bunch of these (like over $100 retail) let us know and we will be more than willing to give you a discount (upto 30% off) and may even have some other goodies for dealers who are interested in taking all of these great guys off our hands!
