|Toys N Things figures|
What: A very cool fantasy-themed mini figure line that came out of the '80s. It consisted of eight different plastic, one-color dragons and monsters (surprise, surprise) packaged with a hollow plastic castle with a removable lid, allowing for the figures to be stored inside. There are two different versions of these: the original figures made by Arco and a later line using the same sculpts by Toys N Things. Figure colors included blue, green, orange and red, with the original line having a bright, waxy, almost translucent look to the plastic and later versions having a more matte look.
When: Originally early-mid 1980s, with versions being sold into the 1990s (I remember buying some at Toys R Us in the early-mid '90s. It's possible they were named differently)
Where: U.S. (at least), sold at toy stores, department stores, variety stores
Who: Originally produced by Arco, '90s line by Toys N Things
