Alter Barnaby Brooks Jr. Plush
So I broke
down and got the Kotetsu plush. Then how was I supposed
to resist Barnaby, even if his pre-order and release date was
That's one secret of Tiger
& Bunny: you can't pre-order just one.
This is how he arrived, with his plush

And here is the sheer adorable.
This plush once again has a lot of things going for

little of both, I'd bet.
