Miniature Vehicles 2, Hong Kong

I have already identified a series of toys called "Miniature Vehicles" that were made in Hong Kong. However there is a second series of toys, also made in Hong Kong, that uses the "Miniature Vehicles" brand. These items are also manufactured in a soft plastic. For the purposes of cataloguing my collection, I refer to this second series of toys as "Miniature Vehicles 2". This series of toys appears in yellow and brown, Matchbox style boxes, however I believe they were manufactured by the same company that manufactured the "Polythene Miniature" series as the vehicles and the reference numbers used are the same for both series of toys — only the series branding differs.

Having said that, it is entirely possible that both series of "Miniature Vehicles" were manufactured by the same company that produced "Polythene Miniatures" or they were manufactured by a third party and merely branded and packaged differently, according to whichever client was contracting them to manufacture. Either way it has proven impossible to determine the company behind the issue of "Polythene Miniature" branded toys or the company, or companies, behind the issue of "Miniature Vehicles" and "Miniature Vehicles 2".
