Since when was the 4kids series slated to air on Kids WB instead of 4kids?

That said, prototypes are considered upper-rung collectibles not being mass produced. They are generally too expensive for me to consider, though if I feel it and see potential, I may grab one or more.

Since always...it was originally going to be on Kids WB but they changed it for some reason.

Man....that's freaking amazing. I need to commission someone to make me one!!! Might you divulge what you paid? My current original figure line is missing only a few figures...my eyes are moving to prototypes.... My wife will love that!

I wonder...in Star Wars Droids series (failed animated series) there was also an Uncle Gundy...
