When collector Andrew posted a pic of his one-of-a-kind Pumba on the awesome Woolworths LION KING & Coles Mini Shop 2 AUSTRALIA - Swap, Sell and Buy Facebook group, there was a lot of buzz amongst Ooshie fans.
‘That’s worth $$,’ said one social media follower. ‘I had one that the gold paint peeled off and took it back for a swap .... I should have kept it as it’s a one of a kind.’
Added another: ‘Definitely a rare, sell it on eBay for $1000.’
Said a third: ‘Rare ASF.’
Others rushed to share their photos of their imperfect Ooshies including ones with missing eyes, bizarre ‘scars’ and smaller ears.
In the end Andrew agreed to hang on to the Pumba in the hope they’re worth more.
He adds: ‘We will see how many miss prints are out there, maybe worth some money.’
