Mike, what 4th series prototypes were made?


I know you told me what was found in The Earth's big discovery, but I'm wondering what was produced from the 4th series as a whole.

Here's what you said was found from The Earth :

- El Dorado (1)
- Shockwave (1)
- Silicon (2)
- Quadrex (supposedly two, but the second was mentioned to me via second-hand info)
- Rocketman (1)
- Power Plus Superman unpainted hardcopy (torso, arms, and kryptonite piece)
- Power Plus Batman unpainted hardcopy (missing right arm and head)
- Power Plus Firestorm unpainted hardcopy torso and arms
- Power Plus Cyborg unpainted hardcopy torso (back half only)

I'm assuming you have a Quadrex, and I know Jason Geyer has one and Derek Ho has 1.5 of them.

What other prototypes were made? Were Executioner or Howitzer ever sculpted?

Also, what's the deal with the Mantis Mandible prototype on eBay? I've never heard of that one and neither have Jason or Dan.

Thanks in advance for any info.

Peace,

Chip

Fake. Completely fake.

I contacted the winner and explained things. He's trying to get a refund from the seller.

It's actually the Triceraton Cruiser from TMNT.

Steven,

No, I didn't bid on it. I researched it extensively while the auction was running (talked to a few ex-Kenner folks and poured through old Kenner paperwork and file photography), but a number of flags ultimately lead me not to place a bid. Alex Bickmore did a really nice job a short while after the auction closed in coming up with an correct identification as shown above.
