Haven't posted on here in yonks, but saw this on ebay: https://www.ebay.co....353.m1438.l2649

 

 

It's billed as a red Hydra but to me looks like a Sonrics figure from the flash and also the 25 logo looking slightly inverted. Yet its at £22 so far.so is it a legit red figure or are some people jumping on the idea it is due to the lack of description and the card (no names mentioned but a person in the past possibly listed a few figures with not totally legit descriptions) and people including me were caught out. 

 

Same seller has a 'red' Jotun Troll too. 

 

They also have sold sonrics in the past, but billed as sonrics. Seems a bit odd if these are, and I think they are, that they aren't saying it

 

Thoughts?

Wow - The price on that quickly spiked! Last I checked it was a little over £2. I did notice the red Jotun too.

Could these be from the Italian releases?
I only have a couple of Sonrics myself and therefore have little to compare these red figures to.

I think I've got sonrics of both these somewhere, can't remember as I've hardly got any figures I'm missing in ages. The troll definitely has some flash around the legs which goes well with sonrics. I thought the Italian ones were brighter in colour, but don't have any to compare with. They did have a lot of flash though so get where you're coming from :)

I'm sure they are Sonrics as the Hydra's points are in the wrong place. The top two are Italian and the bottom two are Matchbox.

I've an Italian red Coatlicue in my collection so I'll check it out and compare the colour - although it can be hard to do with low-res and poorly lit images.

@Dfrazzer
If the points are in the wrong place too then yeah, they're probably Sonrics. Although I'm cool with Sonrics as long as they're in nifty colours, obvious and sold as Sonrics.

Based on that it looks like Sonrics to me.

The neon red Jotun Troll could be Matchbox or Sonrics as the picture isn't very good so I can't tell.

As I mentioned on my MIMP Facebook group, I contacted the seller and they confirmed they’re not Matchbox of course, but are Sonrics. Foreign figures at least if not Sonrics.
