Rare McNugget Baddie listed on Facebook Marketplace for $1000

A rare Macca’s item has been listed for sale for $1,000 – and you can’t even eat it.

From February 14, fast-food lovers have been able buy an adult Happy Meal, which comes with fries, a drink and a choice of either a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets or a Big Mac.

But, with no Macca’s Happy Meal is complete without a toy and the new meal hailed the return of the iconic ‘90s collectibles the McNugget Baddies.

The Golden Nugget McNugget Legend is one of the rarer items in the McNugget Baddies collection. However, one lucky diner was able to get their hands on it and they’re hoping to make bank off of it.

The McDonald’s Golden Nugget McNugget Legend, which is from the Kerwin Box range, has been listed on Facebook Marketplace for $1000, where it has been listed for two days.

The seller describes it as “very rare” and requests the buyer pays cash only.

“The McNugget Buddies were first introduced to Aussies in 1998 as part of a limited-time Happy Meal featuring glow-in-the-dark McNugget Buddy collectibles,” Amanda Nakad, director of marketing for McDonald’s Australia, said.

“They’re best known for their wacky adventures, wild imaginations, unique personas and interchangeable outfits.

“No matter how long it’s been, Macca’s fans never forget the feeling of opening a Happy Meal box to see the surprises inside.

“Fans told us they wanted to celebrate that quintessential childhood experience again, so we’ve delivered for the big kids.”

Frost, who created the “special set of Buddies”, said the figurines “each represent different aspects of self-expression” and described the collaboration as “unreal, a dream come true”.

“McDonald’s has been a great partner from day one, and they’ve truly allowed me to create without limits,” he said.

“I hope the Kerwin Frost Box will serve as a reminder for people to hone their creativity and not be afraid to show the world who they really are.”

The highly anticipated McNugget Buddies arrival Down Under is the first time the toy has been available in Australia since they were axed in 2019.

This time, each one comes with their very own collectors trading cards, which Macca’s said is to “take the big kids on a trip down memory lane”.

The jury’s out about whether the Golden Nugget McNugget Legend is worth parting with $1000 over though.
