I visited our local flea market a few weekends ago and found this:
I had never seen anything like this before and asked the lady where she got them (there were Mickey, Goofy and Minnie). I also found a black and white Donald and a color version (both called "Monochrome") and a small keychain plush with rope arms and legs. She said she got them from Japan. The tag says "Sega" and from what little information I've been able to find, they are used as prizes in the UFO claw machines in Japan, even though the tag says Elk Grove Illinois. I've found a few smaller plushes on ebay for outrageous prices. Does anyone have any information on these prizes?
