Monochromatics... for a Captain's Sea of Stars...

Back - cape
"Monocromático" and painted version, Fabianplastica,
(Portugal ?)- Italy, 1979
Portugal has always been a country where "cheaper" man-power could be found in Europe, so it is quite usual for other European companies to send semi-finished products over here so more "labour-intensive" tasks could be done. Portuguese company Maia e Borges did a lot of painting for Schleich (Smurfs, etc.) but it seems they worked for other companies also... like italian Fabianplastica.

Since there are no markings on either one of the figurines, it is quite difficult to pinpoint where the toy itself was casted / molded.

Notice the reddish pattern in the plastic !
