Is this an Argentina only release? I've never seen it before. I don't immediately think it's a bootleg because of the box...

Infos?

100% bootleg, looks cheap.
P.S. 90 years old sounds funny as shell!

Damn look at that packaging; a lot of effort went into that bootleg.

Playmates didnīt manufactured anything in Argentina. The Turtlecopter, along with the Turtle Tank and the Turtle pick up 4x4 were made by a toy company named "Plastirama". As you can see there were out of scale for the figures (being too small for the figures to fit in) and incredible simple in design. But at least they made the effort to imitate Playmates toybox art and the box design and colours.

Other vehicle came out too, and were even worse, like the famous "Moto Ninja" (Ninja Cycle) that was huge, made of a hollow plastic and with two wheels that were imposible to roll in any surface.

Does this have copyright info on the box? Its simple yet a good addition since there is no pickup truck of anything else, official or unlicensed. I honestly think that should only be worth around $20 due to small scale, lack of detail, and a sticker on the hood that belongs in a Ms. Pac-Man line.

These are rad, but pray tell, WTF is "Real Turtle Action!"?
