He seems to have the same markings as the slightly larger red wearwolf, but he's made of a harder plastic. Is it a game piece or something?

Could be one of those mexican/peru MIMPs. I know they're smaller.

That was kinda my take as well, but I didn't think that those would have markings so similar. Like they're in different places on the body, but they're the same manufacturer info and point system and everything. But then I always assumed that Peru/Mexico MIMP were bootlegs, am I wrong?

I am pretty certain they are bootlegs.

 

Unfortunately I am not that knowledgeable on the subject.

That's really strange. I noticed him in your Instagram pic and was wondering what the deal was with that. As far as I know the Mexico and Peru versions were not in a harder plastic, but I don't collect those versions so others would know better. Very interesting piece.

Behemoth actually dropped some knowledge on me elsewhere, and says that this is a Sonrics Purple Werewolf from Mexico, and that they were packed with candy and comics and came in 16 different colors.

Where did you get yours? I just found mine at an obscure toy/hobby store north of the city I live in.

I can ID both yours and Truman's if you send me some pics of the feet and back.

The small Cromy figures from Argentina are hard plastic incidentally. I am pretty sure both figures are Sonrics especially the werewolf. I am not sure on the Vampiress without more pics.

Werewolf. You only get tiny wearwolves when you toss them in a hot wash cycle.

Hahaha I totally caught that and was like "well, no one else seems to notice, maybe it'll just get overlooked and I'll never have to hear about it" :D

So good. And, well said ;)

a few years ago i've posted photos of her, i'll see if I find the topic where they were.

 

edit : i've found the photos on an old CD.

I have some of the Argentinian figures, they are really really hard almost resin style, to be honest this one looks way to clean, everyone I have seen before has been stained in some way.

@Truman I dont know what to make of her. I thought she might be one of the smaller Cromy figures, but those do not have a point value on the back or printing under the base. Everything about her appears to be matchbox except the size. I would think possibly sonrics but the base and the point value dont match up there either. I really have no idea; and I have one of the most diverse collections of mimp around. The only thing I could guess is that  I remember a Mexican collector shrinking his sonrics figures to about that size using some sort of chemical. It was pretty cool to see little shrunken sonrics. It is possible that this is a Matchbox that is shrunk with a chemical. But there again, I am just guessing. The only release of mimp that I have not seen in person are from chile as far as I know; so I have experience with all of the known releases. Pretty unique figure. 

 

@Aikola Not all Cromy are hard plastic; only the small ones. There are full size versions in the standard 4 colors  as well as Cromy premium colors and translucent colors that are soft rubber just like normal Matchbox mimp.

Most of those are Sonrics, the Light Blue is a lovely colour.
