A couple of months ago, we reported on the action figures of Frankenberry and Count Chocula. Plastic Meatball is also getting in on the action, with a series of figures based on iconic Kellogg’s cereal mascots. Toucan Sam, Tony the Tiger, and Dig ‘Em Frog are currently available for $15 each at Plastic Meatball.
Each mascot is modeled after its early 1980s appearance. The scale is said to be 3.75″, but clearly, Tony stands taller than the other two. So, the tiger may be that tall, with the others coming in a 2.5″ or so. Each figure comes with a blister card. Each cardback is decorated just like the mascot’s cereal box.
Follow your nose to one of the greatest product mascots in advertising history! This iconic bird is ready to fly off of the box and into your collection. Based on his appearance in the early 1980’s, Toucan Sam™ and his retro-themed Froot Loops™ package are just as you remember him.
Give him a smack and he’ll smack you back! This iconic frog is ready to leap off of the box and into your collection. Based on his appearance in the early 1980’s, Dig ‘Em™ and his retro-themed Honey Smacks™ package are just as you remember him.
He’s GR-R-REAT! Perhaps the best known animated cereal mascot of all time is ready to leap off of the box and into your collection. Based on his appearance in the early 1980’s, Tony the Tiger™ and his retro-themed Frosted Flakes™ package are just as you remember him.
I hope Plastic Meatball obtains the rights to the Quaker Oats mascots, as well. Who doesn’t want a Cap’n Crunch action figure? Maybe throw in a couple of Soggies. Hell, throw Quisp in there with King Vitaman (the original one) for good measure.
