That's 2 questions.  ;D

I have the box, somewhere, but I don't think there's a name, in English, on it. These are 20 yrs old, so the secondary market is probably the only place you'll find them.

Same. They were made exclusively for a Japanese department store and are not blind boxed. While Frankenstein's Monster is the image on the front of all the boxes, the character name in Japanese (and number from the back of the box) is printed on the box. They're much larger than the epiphany figures but not quite as tall as the Yanoman releases.

Here's my set of the "cake toppers". They are French and porcelain and they're actually meant to be baked inside the cake, not for decorating on top. They made a second set, which I don't have...

I like them.  Well, except for Frankie's green jacket.

Yup. They are called "feves" and were baked into Easter cakes. They traditionally made lots of little porcelain figures. I would imagine they would tell you there's a toy inside the cake, so you could pick it apart and not break a tooth.

Here's the back of the little sign-type figure...

Just learned they were made by a company called  "Nagasakiya"

Google says it's a big dept. store chain that also does some manufacturing.

Nice to finally know who made them, thanks! I only have two of them--the Creature and the Moleman, with their boxes. I got them at a collectibles/antiques show years ago. They're packed away right now but here's my Moleman...

Of course! Are you not aware of the Mardi Gras King cake tradition?



Whoever finds the porcelain (generally baby) figure gets to (or has to) throw the next party.
