Does anyone recognise the two larger LEGO figures? They are from sets released in the 80’s and I am trying to find out what sets they’re from so I can hopefully build the sets with my son. One is a fireman and came with a fire engine. They fit perfectly between Duplo and LEGO but I can’t seem to find any trace of them, the closest similar product I’ve found is Fabuland which is all animals but the same size figures.

    Based on their apparent size they could be Duplo figures, but I couldn't find any exact matches in Bricklink or Brickset (albeit with an admittedly non-exhaustive search). Are you sure these figures are genuine LEGO pieces? Or they could also be mixed up from multiple separate figures: the legs do look like Fabuland, but the heads don't match.

  • @zovits good points, but both Duplo and Fabuland figures were designed to not be taken apart easily. Commented Mar 8, 2019 at 11:55
  • @RobertColumbia I know they weren't designed to be separated, that's why I'm sceptical whether they are LEGO figures at all. Nonetheless, "designed to be not taken apart" =/= "can't be taken apart", especially when talking about kids with seemingly unlimited creativity, tenacity and time. But the well-preserved state of the figures indicates the lack of forceful disassembly attempts, so I'm still not sure enough to warrant an answer.

  • The sets were identified as Lego Basics 390-1 and 392-2 and I’ve been able to assemble both from my hoard of bricks now that I’ve seen pictures of the vehicles. The figures have Lego stamped inside the legs so I was certain they were original Lego pieces.

    Thank you for your response. I also contacte Lego directly and they identified which sets they came from and after some rummaging I was able to piece the sets together for my young son to play with.
