Those are old packages. Probably over 30 years old during the Ral Partha days.

Man...I don't even remember those, and I'm well older than 30! LOL

We see this often in the firearms industry. High quality gun accessories like LaRue, Magpul and Daniel Defense being copied by Chinese makers. Stuff is cheap and in some cases dangerous to use. I’ve had a few Deputies show up to training with crap Chinese knockoff parts on their patrol rifles and made them remove the parts. As to miniatures, God only knows if the metals and plastics those knockoffs are made from aren’t toxic.

Cache is correct, they are old and from the Ral Partha days. Most likely from back in the day when Ral Partha licensed manufacturing to other companies in other countries. Just look at the orange packaged one, it even says that.
