Well, these days Christmas comes in a 'white van' for most people, with the odd red, yellow or blue one! Letters, parcels, supermarket food-deliveries, Amazon sub-contractors . . . and then there are the chocolate-brown ones! You know, the funny-looking "Who made that?" one's . . .although albinism has been known!
You can see the corporate colour-scheme (as distinctive as the UK's Royal Fail red, or the 'Euro-post' yellow) is carried over to the packaging, and the figures are a touch larger than 54mm at a small sixty! The set included 8 paper/card parcels; presumably hidden in the van - for safekeeping!

Update 19-12-16 - Brain has added an image of the cut-out packages, with the following note;
"As I said when I sent the pix I'm pretty sure that I saw the same
figures and conveyor in the UK which on further thought was a Farm
Tractor and trailer, hay bales, conveyor and figures. At the time it was
amongst Blue Box toys but it may have been just mixed in as there was

- I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play.
