    I saw no thread for these toys, so I made one. Found a lot of them (made by Simba, of all companies! the irony!) out yesterday in Interspar - googling the toys, I see that the american releases are oddly not the same as these. I will provide photos later, forgot to take any, sorry.

    The Blind Bags are pretty awesome quality, and the characters are easy to identify by feel (easier than MLP FiM ones, at least). The US version seems to have only a limited number of characters based on the pics I saw, this one has more. The toys are extremely well sculpted and painted, the photos on the packaging actually look worse than the real deal! :)  And as the set contains a lot of Lion King 1-2 characters too, who (I think) never got toys at the time the movies were released, this is a good chance to get cartoon-accurate versions of them.

    -Kion (regular, roaring and chase metallic)
    -Bunga (two versions, one oddly a more blue-ish color as well as a chase metallic version)
    -Beshte
    -Fuli
    -Ono
    -Kiara
    -Timon
    -Pumbaa
    -Rafiki
    -Zazu
    -Mtoto (an elephant kid)
    -Janja (the main hyena kid antagonist of the show).

    There are also larger "Versus" packs for about 20 EUR - these contain one of the main characters as a larger toy with moveable legs, and one antagonist who is a single-molded toy, plus one decoration/action item. I saw 5 of these:
    -Kion vs. Janja plus some cliffside wall that cracks in two. Janja seemed the same as his blindbag, just larger.
    -Beshte vs. Makuu (the crocodile leader)
    -Fuli vs. Reirei (the scheming jackal girl)
    -Ono vs. Mzingo (the vulture lackey)
    -Bunga vs. ... another Janja. Seems like the same mold.

    If you ever find yourself with an extra set, I'd be interested in the Fuli, Beshte, and Bunga battle packs. I haven't seen those in the states.

    I tried looking for them for my two younger ones (they enjoy the show) but the line isn't out in my country.
