Hey guys I picked up this little fella yesterday, can anyone shed some light on him and whether he is worth anything, cheers
Would be about 2 inches long and almost looks like it was painted with a rattle can.

Plastic? I think Rob did hand-paint many of the early ones. Some on here will know more on that than me.

To be honest I don’t know what it is, it does look moulded as there is a bit of a seam on the bottom.

I agree mr fugly, there is a seam under the bib, by the looks of it it’s going to sell for 10 bucks haha. I think I may have counted my chickens before they came home with this lot

i'm not a collector but it might be worth hanging onto,polyurethane lures are still way nicer than the ABS ones in my opinion.Look how collectable the dolls eye Boomerangs have become Wink
