Manufacturer: Matchbox Item #3150

This is the first production run version, with the Matchbox logo on the front top. Another version exists with the logo removed from the front top of the outer box, before production of Freddy was ceased entirely due to outrage from some consumers.

“Each time you pull Freddy’s string, he has a special message just for you!” the box coninues the scary narration. The pullstring can be accessed without removing Freddy and has six phrases. “Hi, I’m Freddy”, “Welcome To Elm Street”, “Let’s Be Friends”, “Pleasant Dreams”, “Ha Ha Ha Ha!” and “Watch Out Freddy’s Back!”. No batteries needed! Freddy is 18“ tall in mint condition, from the fedora on his head to his red and green knit sweater, down to his black boots. Freddy’s features are artistically rendered, from his scarred face to yellow teeth and gnarled claws. Creeeeepy!

The outer box is nightmare-themed, in near mint condition, with very minor corner damage and a crease on the clear front window, and a slight scuff around the area where the pull-string is accessed. The box is 20 1/2” x 10” x 4 3/4” and Freddy is still twist-tied inside. Don’t let him out! Photos are of of actual item. Climate controlled storage and minimally handled. Sold as is.

Year: 1999
Manufacturer: McFarlane Toys
Condition: Mint condition in mint package
First edition vintage collectable

Yeah baby! It’s the one and only Austin Powers, nearly naked with a chest full of curly hair. Wearing only Union Jack underwear, Austin is totally shagadelic! This toy made the news in 1999 when some found the text on the package and the randy phrases a little too “adult” for children. There were multiple versions. This one has Austin saying “Do I make you horny baby, do I?” on the front, and includes a sexy dictionary, along with a mirror, a martini glass and olive on a stirrer. The martini glass and olive stirrer were very small parts, and removed from later versions because of the choking hazard. A second version was made with different phrasing (see other model by clicking here).

Austin is about 6” tall, and in his original packaging, which is in mint condtion. Mike Meyers provides the voice, which is in the base. The tab has never been pulled on either version, so it should speak when removed, but it’s not guaranteed. (Why would you ever open it anyway baby?)

Photos are of of actual item. Climate controlled storage and minimally handled. Sold as is. Only one available.
