PostSubject: THE PRE-PRODUCTION / PROTOTYPES THREAD    THE PRE-PRODUCTION / PROTOTYPES THREAD  I_icon_minitimeFri May 28, 2010 11:51 am

I decided to start this thread following the purchase and subsequent limelight of my Top Toys silicone mold of chewie's torso.  There were many of my fellow collectors asking a lot of questions surrounding the pre-production process and prototypes in general.

The thread is designed to show the collecting community the wide variety of prototype and pre-production items that are available for the entire vintage Star Wars figure line.  It is also intended that this thread will grow by other collectors here on the forum being prepared to share any items that they may have.  

Please note - items added to this thread may have changed hands. If you are the new owner and do not want it listed here then please contact a Moderator.



Moderator's note: Big thanks to Steve for starting this thread. Unfortunately he is no longer able to update the index, so the TIG Moderators will be taking on this task. Please continue to add your photos and discussion in the thread and we will update the index with thumbnail versions of the photos. We've also added a new part to the index where you can include non character items such as vehicle/playset packaging, three packs, etc.
Thanks! - TIG Moderators

Great idea Steve! I think this will be a wonderful resource to TIG!

Hopefully this will help our new collectors understand the process of making these great figures we all know and love!

Thanks for taking the time to tackle a project like this! Smile

I can only imagine what this thread will look like in time. Excellent idea Steve.

Are you mainly looking for things like molds, hardcopies, 1st shots, etc or are you also looking for Reference Photos, Cromalins, Proofs?

I was wondering about the bootlegs also. I got 4 sprues if your planning on adding the bootleg line in at some time.

To answer all of the questions so far:

1. I want to concentrate initially on vintage and licensed manufacturers.
2. Within that i am happy to add anything - molds, proto figures, cromalins, photoart etc etc.

If in any doubt send me a message or email with the pics and description and a decision will be made from there.

A new item added - chief chirpa LL mold purge.

Great thread Steve! Dig the TT Chewie stuff a LOT!
Will make a small contribution too. (so even Joe can see Razz)
Thread could become massive if 2D and 3D pieces are submitted, looking forward to it Smile

Not to spoil things btw but the polish unpainted torsos and limbs on sprues are 'just' overstock pieces just like the Uzay AAD and Vader limbs.

Martijn, thanks for the heads up on that. I was under the impression that the Polish sprues were pre-production pieces, at least thats what most are selling as. For overstock, they sure go for some mad money.

Dan,

I have a real interest in this particular part of collecting. I am no expert but it will help me learn as well as the other forum members. Just need more pics to add to the thread.

cheers

Hi Steve, congrats on a great thread for pre-production & proto-types. An area of the collecting world that is completely new to me - so I'm pleased to see the pictures up so far. Top marks mate! Smile
