Unidentified: Insect people vending machine figures
What: Rubber figures of half insect, half human creatures. Pictured are pink and blue versions of an ant woman as well as a beetle man (who is quite the dapper gentleman sporting a cane and bowtie), as well as a softer rubber, suction figure with a sculpt that looks to be based on the beetle man. I'm assuming there were additional sculpts, but not sure. These are charming in a very bizarre, cheap toy sort of way.
When: Probably 1980s
Where: U.S., probably sold in toy vending machines
