Hah, I used to love these. I remember when you used to get them free with Frosties, I collected them for a bit. I also remember the hilariously misleading advert where they claimed to have made them "extra squishy", before showing someone squash one right down. Unfortunately that was a complete lie.

Oh my yes, I still have a lot of love for these, still actively collecting them. I'm on the LittleRubberGuys forum under the same name if you're ever up for an in-depth discussion? Crazy values, the guys on there will probably pay you a fair amount for that lot you have there!

I have all of the first and second series, but the THIRD series (in Argentina anyway) is crazy-hard to collect. Most of those figures go for at least $100 each. I have all of the Super Scary, all the Super Creepy, all the Dinosaurs, most of the Space Aliens, all the Wrestlers, most the Ninja Warriors... And I'm also a big fat loud-mouthed show-off :lol:

I mainly bought them to stick around my monitor, they do look pretty cool, I didn't realise they came in different multi-colours the later ones, I only picked up the plain coloured ones in the shop, probably other later series stuff still there. Might have to go back for a looksie, after looking up the ones I got, I realised that there were musle men in that box as well! doh!

Those Sirens... Are they the full colour ones from 2006-ish? Or the mono-coloured ones?

If it's a modern one, could I request it from you? Missing that one for some reason.
If they're the older ones, get thee to eBay immediately! Hundreds of moneys to be made!

Is this sort of price normal?

If so then I might think about parting with mine.

Yep, that's about average, if a little less than if it was put out to the American market. I'm sitting on a rubber goldmine, but can't bare to part with the little fellas!

They are coloured one's they look a bit like Siren from Final Fantasy very long hair and pointy ear's.. They came in a double pack with some other monster I bought from Poundland a few years back.. I always prefer the female figures for some reason :lol:

Pm your address and you can have one for nothing :D unfortunately the Card and the other figure(Wendigo) are missing.. I also have 20+ pogs of that Dog thing thing in your Avatar I will chuck in for free as well

here's a picture of it

Heh, yeah...

I decapitated a Tony The Tiger one once, and buried him at opposite ends of the garden.

Had to go to eBay ten years later for a replacement :oops:
