hotspot mutant ninja turtleTwo of the rarest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures Hot Spot and Scratch will be fighting their way into Vectis TV and Film auction on the 15th April. The models from the Playmates Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1992-93 series included two of the range’s rarest figures – Hot Spot and Scratch.

Hot Spot is a mutant Dalmatian dog; he wears a firefighter badge and is an ally of the Mutant Ninja Turtles. Estimate £140-£200

Scratch is a mutant cat; wearing a prisoner suit, he is one of Shredder’s mutant allies. Estimate £50-£70
