FIXER ::.." wonder if you've already encountered these...
They're plush TMNT figures made by Play-by-play, a plush toy company from
Valencia, Spain. Apparently, they have a truckload full of licences. This is the list on

their website:

Strangely enough, the TMNT licence isn't on the site...
Well, anyway... Their TMNT plushes are great. Their shells, plastrons, elbow- and kneepads

are made in some sort of cool fake leather which looks really great. Also, the iron bars in

their arms 'n legs make 'em posable
They have this oldschool 'Muppet' quality about them.


I got my movie Mike plush today - He's HUGE!!!!

Here's a comparison pic with my old school Mike plush:
