At least a few appear to be bootlegs of Street Fighter characters.

I've seen these but not sure how old they are, they look to be knock off Street fighter characters.

Thank you very much for your answers! In Italy they came out as a surprise in chips at the beginning of the 90's, they are the size of a kinkeshi, these in photos have been recovered in Serbia! So they were marketed not only in my country .. I would like to know their origins, as a child they were my favorite toys :)

I have a handful of these, so I assume they were also sold in the US.  I will check mine for markings when I have a chance, maybe something that may provide more info.

Thank you so much for your contribution! I am so happy for this! I'm curious to see a picture of them :) They are all branded with a "CHINA" and I noticed that unlike those distributed in Serbia (which I currently have) those distributed in Italy had more details in color (photo taken by an Italian friend)

Here are the ones I have. Looks like some small paint variations as well as two additional sculpts.
All marked ‘china’

I believe these designs were inspired by a mixture of Street Fighter, Dragon Ball
and Fist of North Star.

My theories of these particular molds:

Fat Yellow Man - Could be Karnov (Fighter's History) or Heart (Fist of North Star)

Purple Ninja - Geki (Street Fighter)

Red Kilt - E. Honda (Street Fighter)

Skinny man in yellow singlet - Sagat (Street Fighter) or Dhalsim (Street Fighter)

Blue Jeans - T. Hawk (Street Fighter)

Yellow Monk with prayer hands - Tien (Dragon Ball Z) or Dhalsim (Street Fighter).


I'd estimate late 1980's to early 1990's. The quality of these figures are actually
superior to a number of Street Fighter keshi and gashapon figures released

at the time.
