The first two characters pictured here are mine, these are the ones from England. You can see the colors are weird as I have mentioned and the pointing is not as good as in the original set. They still have the green bases that all the figures except lowly and the motorcycle dog have. These do say 1977 on them. I think they no longer mention Hong Kong the name is change here. I think they actually say something like Singapore.
I wanted to mention something from the rabbit figure. You can see the head is not the same as in the hospital patient from the Doctor Loin set. It has been re sculpted it is smaller as the figure is a bit taller. One my dressed rabbit the head does not turn. I am pretty sure this is the case for all of these new figures.
You can see the two figures in their own cars below. There is a missing headlight on the pickle car. This happened basically the day i gave it to my kid. So be warned a kid that likes to throw things may not be the primary target for a toy of this time. Especially if you are spending the sort of money it requires to get them off eBay. Those prices are rough
This get me to the figure for the banana car the gorilla. I do have him but my kiddo likes to squirrel away here toys in all sort of little hide holes. I regret to have broken him off his base as well. That is how i know the heads don't turn on these toys. The colors of this toy are much more in line with the originals not so garish. The eyes of the figurine are like those in the new pig and rabbit toys.
