Wow a real mystery :o I thought sure someone would have figured it out by now :D

I had thought maybe another Playmates line from around the some time as the Turtles (with companion figs) but didn't have any luck there either.

Nice spot on Ruff the Ref S4P, I now have one on order, thanks for the heads up :huh:

I also have Tad Pole, P Parrot and Nutty on the way - I narrowly missed out on the awesome Harey :D so he's now on my hit list. Interestingly these 4 companion figures from the Sewer Super Heroes range were available in various colors (Blue, Red, Yellow, Purple). Also if anyone is thinking of picking these up MIP, look closely at the picture - not all releases of Sewer Super Heroes included the the sidekicks.

There was also a Sunflower character that came with Rock n Roll Mondo Gecko - very cool.

I wonder if the blue snake guy came with a vehicle? That would explain the peg, a bit like these:

He's either an odd or foreign-release companion figure...or perhaps a vehicle/playset attachment.

Has anyone checked the Cow Boys of Moo-Mesa figures? They were made very similarly to the TMNT figures if I recall, and I know they were also by Playmates. Perhaps this guy's some mexican snake from that series?

Our glorious Milky Way is a tiny, infinitesimal speck of sand in this vast, incomprehensible universe. And somewhere in that Milky Way is our own solar system, less than one billionth of that speck of sand that is the Milky Way. And then there is our planet Earth, one hundred trillionth of that one billionth of that one speck of sand. And on this planet Earth there is DEV-0, an insignificant blemish with a lifespan too short to measure when placed in infinite time.

And you are here, with them, as so many specks of sand.

The only Cow Boys vehicle I could find was Iron Horse...

I don't think the blue snake came with that :lol: Anyone find any more vehicles??

Well, after reading more, it looks like the C.O.W. snake character always wears that Confederate hat, so it doesn't look to be the same character as our blue figgyy. :lol:

They must be TOUGH to find...I vaguely remember an odd Crusader figure popping up many years ago. None have shown up in my Toxic Crusader or Avenger searches lately. Wonder if Voltron issued mini-figures?

Will keep you posted on those Thundercat figures. I don't own any of the He-man ones, but I'm certainly hoping to grab Battle Cat and Man-E Faces before it's all said and done... :lol:

Thanks CTM! I was so desperate to know that I posted on a TMNT website but even they didn't know, they just pointed me towards ninjaturtles.com

I found it there along with this:

Nice find, Fitz!

I think it's neat that we pretty much all agreed it HAD to be a TMNT figure, even though we'd never seen it before. Look at enough toy lines, and you begin to recognize sculpting styles, plastic types, and plastic colors. For me, I think that's what had me most convinced. The color of that figure just screamed Playmates!

Bravo. Apparently, you win $-30+ because you order the things the figure came with!

:lol: yeah, that's not the half of it :p

It's a shame that those COW Boys didn't have companion figures, they would have been cool. Apparently they are Mirage just like TMNT.

But then again it's a shame that every TMNT figure didn't come with a little buddy -_-

Is Mirage a division of Playmates? I thought most of the TMNT companion figures were released under Playmates? I did know Mirage made TMNT toys, but that was later in the line right? Did Mirage make the clear companion figs?

The Toxic Crusaders are also Playmates. The design and coloring of TMNT and Toxic Crusaders toys are very similar.

I thought that Mirage was Eastman and Laird's company and that the Playmates figures were as such all joint ventures between the two companies??

I might be wrong though...

:doh:

Yes, that's what it is... Mirage is the comic book company that created the TMNT characters (and as you said, the C.O.W.-boys of Moo Mesa series), and Playmates was the toy manufacturer of at least TMNT. (I do think some of the newest TMNT figures were made by Mirage too though. I could be totally wrong though.) I'm not sure if Playmates made the Moo Mesa line too. Here's a list of Playmates lines @ Wiki, but Toxic Crusaders isn't on there, and they were def made by Playmates.

According to their Wiki page, the C.O.W.-boys were made by Hasbro:

In 1991 Hasbro Toys produced a series of ten action figures and one vehicle. Marshal Moo Montana was produced heaviest while the character Boot Hill Buzzard is the rarest of the set with only a limited number released. Of the three main heroes the Dakota Dude is the scarcest. In 1999 the Kid Stuff company manufactured a set of 3 inch tall action figures for its Moo Mesa Kid's Meal promotion. Articulated at the shoulders, neck and waist the assortment consisted of Marshal Moo Montana, The Dakota Dude, The Cowlorado Kid, Miss Cowlamity Kate, Cody Calf and the Masked Bull. These were available at participating restaurants.

If those snakethings and playsets are from a game, boardgamegeek.com may have a picture of them-- but good luck searching through hundreds of entries just to find the figures.

Goggles, eh? Man, i never would've figured that one out. I don't think i've ever even *seen* those goggles before, and i've dug through a lot of TMNT stuff in my time. :woot:

I'm happy that it did turn out to be a TMNT figure (like Soupie said, means our skills are in order), but it sucks that it's part of what's probably a pretty hard-to-find toy. The cool thing about a lot of the companion figures is that the toys they come with are fairly easy and cheap to find MOC.

Thanks Soups,
I was just going to post that little green cactus figure in the help section.
Got one in a figure lot some time back.
