“Research tells us that Ed Roth had the first of these little guys produced in 1962 and they were made in Japan. They had the large “R.F.” on their chest. Apparently there were knock-offs produced thereafter, including the “mini’s” and ones that either said “Finks” or “Rat Fink” spelled out on their chest. These were available in gumball machines, as well as being sold packaged with the ring they attached to in a box display.” Learn more about these amazing little totems and see a million more pics here >
