Interesting. You don't often see hard copies with the plastic ball joints since there is no way you could pop resin onto a ball joint.

The best prototype to own is the initial Casey Jones figure. Without the mask, he looked too much like the Mirage version of Casey. From '88 to '91, Playmates was really trying to appeal to those who made the comic book (and all of its spin-offs) a big deal in '86. It did not work for some reason. The Mirage universe was completely diverse from that of the OT (which was made for children). It's too bad the Mcfarlane way of marketing a figure with dual heads did not exist in the late 80's. Playmates would have definately sold more Caseys that way.

Yeah, I have never been one to be jealous of other people's stuff, but I have an unexplainable psychological need for that figure.

I've accumulated these from a variety of sources over the years, including eBay and from dealers like Hollywood Heroes (aka the "Toyhunter", Jordan H.)

Here's an unpainted hardcopy from the next mutation series:



And here's a Dwarf Don unpainted hardcopy from the Warriors of the Fogotten Sewer series:

Picked up the Killer Ant unpainted hardcopy quite a few years back as part of a large lot of prototypes so i can't put a specific dollar amount for what i paid for it specifically. In any case, you can still pick up prototypes for TMNT and most other toylines for pretty reasonable prices...it's only vintage Star Wars prototypes that are insanely expensive.

And yes Uncle Gundy was a character from the Droids series

This is my favorite thread in the forum right now. I wish I had some photos to share. So far my favorites are the early 2000 prototype Leo, and the Cyber Samurai Rocksteady. Amazing stuff overall. It would be nice to see some of these released as new figures, but I doubt there would be interest for Playmates to do such a thing.

I'd love to see what the Cyber Samurai prototype looks like!
