Group Description

Photo copped from eBay - see seller nickismia's OTHER cool stuff! . . . THE collectibles of the new millennium are the
charming, disarming, and often crude inoffensive and/or offensive solid or hollow PLASTIC FIGURES - usually what toymakers call "knockoffs" - which represent the best and worst of entrepeneurial HONG KONG from the fifties to 1999's takeover by Mainland Communist China.
Since literally billions of copies of American and european plastic figures were knocked off in thousands of copy
poses and color variations, it MAY take most of the 21st century to collect, or even catalog them. The figures we are dedicated to ARE all MARKED "Hong Kong" without exception , however; that means we're dealing with a CLOSED UNIVERSE here!! THIS LIST, begun by an erstwhile, part-time collector of plastic figures (since 1955), will serve as a clearing house for a small but dedicated coterie of plasticsfanatics.
