What a big discussion about a mix-and-match testshot!
Strange how easily parts in the wrong color or mixed-up parts look so different!
If all parts were in the familiar colors, then probably...
Seems to me that this thread hasn't seen so much interest in the last months: not much new postings, no new pictures, not even ebay-pictures.
Is the topic "prototypes and testshots" no longer an...
Haven't seen a lot of the newer figures as testshot yet:
No Modulok, Unnamed One, Entrapta, Sweet Bee, Arrow, NA She-Ra, Tung Lashor, Gwildor, Mermista or Spinnerella.
And no 2015 figures neither....
Nice way to start army-building?! :elgrin:
I loved the mini-figures from day 1, since they were shown as prototypes.
I'd lost my hope to see them one day, but then they finally got produced.
I'm a bit sad, they don't have the same size as...
Did you see this one?
An testshot MOC.
Wow. I'm flashed. But it seems logical: they need to check the position of the figures in the blisters too!
There was no statue in 2012, only the giant Grayskull.
I'd like to see both in my collection.
They are both really cool filmation characters.
But if I'd to choose, I'd pick Huntara!

It's more a Starla with a Tallstar-head and a Glory Bird without armor, but with a Zoar-stand.
I was wondering too.
You see quite a lot of testshots on ebay these days, but they're all older characters. Maybe you're right and less and less testshots come to the marketplace. Future will tell.
I would not try to remove the black spray paint.
I've seen testshot-figures, that someone tried to clean from the black color. They looked awful, because the black paint remained in every small...
Darthdrew: Thanks for your Statement.
Nothing really new for me, but interesting to read because you brought all the Facts together.
So thank you for sharing your knowledge with us!
These two were sold on ebay 10 hours ago:
Nice testshots again.
I like the look of King He-Man and of his testshot as well.
Thanks for sharing all the fotos!
Just ended on ebay:
So much new pictures since I visited this thread last time!
Thanks for sharing!
Especially the Snake Face rocks!
I'm not a fan of popping-off vintage-heads. I had some difficulties in the past to put some heads back on the figures.
But I wanted to make some fotos and show you the copyright of my...
I just checked my head of my childhood-Skeletor and there really is a copyright on it. I lifted the head of my Black Face Skeletor a little bit, just so far, that I could see the place where I...
Did you see those two guys?
Both ended in ebay about an hour ago, when I was still lying in bed...
Not the best testshots I've ever seen, but some of the really first MotUC-figures.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
That's what I'm worrying since I first saw one of these Black Face Skeletors: why isn't here any color left in his face.
There were quite a few discussions in...

Here are two pictures that haven't been shown in this thread yet, I think.
A lot of testshots were to be seen at the german Grayskull Con...
I'm sorry, if a thread about this topic already exists, but I couldn't find it.
So I have this awesome Skeletor in my collection:
It's a soft-headed Spain...
But that's the good news, if you meet one of the villains: nobody died in the MotU-world before we got the MotUC-bios! :hmlol:
That's reilly odd.
King Grayskull was the first figure to be released.
Maybe when his regular version with the orb came to the release, the casting mold for his cape wasn't available any more. So...
ebay is strange... Haven't found the Netossa yesterday...?! :hmeek:
Have you seen this guy already?
Hey cool thread!
Saw one with the same topic on the german website www.planeteternia.de
Here are some pictures from my childhood:
Christmas 1984 with my first two MotU figures:
As much as I am an Evil-Lyn-fan, I'm not sure if I want any more varaints of her. Her 200X-look was great and the filmation look was cool too, but I don't think I'd like to buy some more variants of...
Thanks for sharing the pictures of Netossa and Jitsu.
Haven't found the Netossa on ebay, is she already sold?
Both look cool as testshots, but I prefer testshots with more colors.
A really cool question!
As some of you already wrote, I also think I'd be afraid of most of them, if they suddenly stood before me in real life. I mean, I never thought of this before, but to meet...
