Pet Mascots by Play Box Toys?
« on: November 30, 2017, 08:08:34 AM »
I was browsing MH Merch for Crescent figures and I found these. Does anyone know how/where (etc) these were released or have any other info on them? I tried Googling but couldn't find anything so I figured I'd ask here :)

I believe some of these did get released in the UK. IIRC they have switchable heads and about two inches tall. I saw them in TKMxx a couple of years ago, I think.
There are many of shades of grey between black and white.

No, those are the Monster Cross pets. As far as I can tell, these are different (just happen to have similar molds).

These figures were released by Play Box Toys de Ansaldo for the South American market in 2014. They were sold in tube packaging 4-packs, blind bags, blister card 2-packs, and all together in a travel case (https://i.imgur.com/SLGaoEz.png) They used to pop up here and there online, though I haven't personally seen them for sale in a long time. Here's an old listing for them on their website: http://www.playbox.cl/modulos/productos/ver.php?id=41785

Watzit, Count Fabulous , Hissette, and Crescent were all recast from the "Cross Pets" line that was more widely available, while Shiver, Daddy-O Longlegs, Neptuna, and Sir Hoots-a-Lot were unique to this line. I've always wondered if the latter four were simply intended as an eventual second wave to the Cross Pets line that was just never used, only to be reimplemented here.

AWESOME, thank you! That's exactly what I needed, that's super helpful, thanks so much :) Looks like I've got something new to look out for, then!

It is interesting that this line has more chars than the Cross Pets line.. I wonder what happened there, too.

No problem. :) I hope you're able to find what you're looking for. I'll be sure to let you know if I ever come across them again.
