Hi friends, was just on eBay U.S. and discovered this listing of mixed mimps: https://www.ebay.ca/...qYAAOSwcjhay~pa

 

On first impressions, it looks genuine and relatively same size as any other regular Matchbox MIMP but not entirely sure though. I only know of a Cyan Winged Panther figure. I'm assuming it's not a Mexican Sonrics or an Italian release, but it looks exactly same shade of orange as the mini boglin on the bottom far right of the photo.

 

I remember this subject being brought up by somebody a couple years or more ago. From what I recall, it was an eBay listing for a single loose Winged Panther figure in orange, but because of the picture quality, I don't think any of us ever identified it's authenticity or not. Unless of course one of you has that very figure, in which case please come forward! :)

 

If this is the real deal, then there's probably many more yet to be discovered. Like the sculpts featured here on the front of the Decipher board game (i.e. Orange Great Beast, Orange Griffin and Cyan Cockatrice). http://www.raumhafen...M.P. Board Game

 

:thanks:

I saw this and I concluded to myself that it's neon red. I've seen cameras do very weird things with that color, including making it look like that orange. 

 

EDIT: that Mini Boglin was also made in the same neon red, so I'm guessing the same thing is happening there.

I'm guessing it is NR considering the colors look off. But can't be totally sure
