Rocket Firing Prototype


About This Item

Availability

Sorry, no recommended vendor for this right now

Description

1979

Kenner

Rumor has it that only 100 of these were made, and only 15-30 are accounted for. These were never sold to the public.

Two major variants exist: an "L"-slot rocket firing mechanism and a "J"-slot mechanism, based on the backwards shape of those letters.

Almost all of the prototypes are unpainted, blue figures. One version is known to have yellow legs.

The "L"-slot missiles have 4 distinctive "ribs," whereas the "J"-slot version has 8 distinctive ribs. Since this projectile separated from the figure, it's not necessarily paired with every prototype; some were lost.

None of the figures have a copyright stamp on the leg, like the regular release of this figure (which did not have a working, firing rocket).

Each prototype figure was loose, however, one version was shown carded at a Toy Fair expo.

Tomart's Action Figure Digest #20 has an authoritative write-up on the further back story.
