Unidentified: Pencil topper monsters
What: Various monsters with holes underneath so they can be put on top of pencils. In the above photos, the gray animal warriors are made of hard plastic while all of the rest of the figures are made of eraser material. In addition to the animal warriors, there are monster heads, a dragon, and probably one of the most bizarre toys I own--a half-horse, half-human guy with wings and a really ghoulish face. They are all marked with "Hong Kong."
When: I got these in the early 1990s.
Where: Ironically, considering some of these are incredibly evil-looking/strange (Nazi skull heads, weird man-horse-demon), I remember getting them at a church bazaar.
