Can anyone tell me about the hello mac plush?

I recently acquired (from a member on here) the hello mac plush.

I can't find anything about him online.

I'm wondering where and when he was sold?
Was he just a normal purchase?
How many more are out there?


Any body have any info, google brings up literally nothing.

It was for sell in an hello mac store all I know.. has NOTHING in common with that controller but it's pretty neat tho.

it was sold for 500 usd 3 years ago to a forum member including the controller.

that forum member stopped collecting sold it to one other collector that I don`t know it's name, so lets say nr2.

nr2 posted it what the value are. and resold it for 600ish with the controller to a customer called nr3

and I think was that forum member you bought it from, and I`m not sure but I think you want to sell it to a friend of mine? (small world huh..)

and now I see it again lol



PS: Toys R Us also had one with a giraffe..

Hey Vinyl, thanks for the info. He's not for sale I'm afraid! Just really want to know where he came from and why I can't find any info about him at all. There must be more somewhere? Do you know who had him first?

Hi,

Maybe not exactly what you are looking for, but like Vinyl said. It was sold in Hello Mac Stores in Japan and it is very likely that there are thousands of them considering there were over 500 Hello Mac Stores. It is just not the "typical" item that finds its way to the west.

If u want to know more about the Hello Mac stores in general you can check my history on it HERE

But how do you explain the lack of photos / info online? Someone must know something about them?

yeah This one as far as i know wasn't associated with the controller. However, there is a giant geoffrey plush that is apparently associated with the controller that my buddy bought from the juice.

I think the lack of info online is because you are searching sites that are in English. Since the plush was a japanese only item, you'd have better luck searching Japanese websites for him, although, I don't think you'd find much. It would be comparable to the Taco Bell dog plush, just a mascot of a store turned into a plush.

Thanks Solo,
I remember seeing this duo a long time ago, but now i am sure.

Do you see the logo on it's foot?

The company didn't start using this logo style on it's exclusive items until the mid 2000's.
If this Geoffrey plush was even closely related to the controller, the "R" in the logo would be like this:

I'm not trying to intentionally discredit anyone, because i believe when this combo was originally being sold, theJuice401 added it just as a bonus.

This plush is fairly current and can still be found online.

if that is true then the juice lied to him. he told him it was the only one to ever show up.
I see plushes that are similar but none like this one. The r on the foot looks the same as the R in the logo to me. Im not sure exactly where the differences lie.

Well, i'll correct what i said earlier...
Compared to similar plush online, it is bigger! Making it uncommon at the least, and would have value.
But it also does have the "star pelt pattern" consistant with the newer Geoffrey mascot.

What can i say, i know my toys and backwards R's. :P
