what on earth is that!? What's it made of? regular production plastic?
Dose anyone know how common PRE-PRODUCTION SOFT PROTOTYPES are for the 1982 motu line ?
I was sold what seems to be a two bad soft prototypes and am trying to get it authenticated by CIB :COLLECTIBLE INVESTMENT BROKERAGE , but the web site is weird .

yes , mattel took some of there existing figures to experiment with , in this case to see how two torsos would fit together for their TWO BAD figure .
have you guys see anything like it ?
no it didn't ,but i'm in the process of getting it authenticated with the original designers .
I am curious, is there any country mark and year left on the back of the He-Man part of the figure?

No offense meant at all, but that thing looks fishy, the artist would have a ton of extra work cutting those two production figures apart just to melt them together again. I just don't see that being practical or by all means normal for what it's supposed to be (a prototype). These (from what all records show us) have always been clay pieces or wax sculpts, many times hand painted.
Of course the artist could have used anything to pitch a figure, even melting production figures together (who knows ) but to be honest, this is looking a lot more like a custom fan project
If I remember right, this figure was sold some years ago in argentina. There was a seller who sold a lot of customs figures, for example Filmation characters, built statues from crappy figures, made "stone washed" figures etc.
I do not think that this Figure is the real deal.
FIGURE twists for a power punch!

The same thing we see in Mattel publications.. figures on the photos are always the latest production variants matching the time of publication, so you never can see on their photos some early Skeletor 1981 and He-Man 1982 on the same photo...

All this lot comes from a former employe from Mattel, the former employee sold a big lot of produced items and prototypes to a seller on ebay, this seller is not an expert on prototypes but he know it was preproduction material. He sold a few items as prototypes but the descriptions wasnt accurate so you can tell hes not an expert. The piece it keep my atention was a hard copy hand painted (you can tell from the pics the figure was a hard copy because it was easy to see the green color of the urethane in some parts and not rubber bands in the legs) that confirm all of them were real, so I bought all of them. Then a week latter the same seller sold a lot of production figures and there were the "Two bad" ( skeletor/Heman) and the heman/Moss man, the auction ends really cheap and I forget to bid on it, I put in contact with the seller and the seller confirm this lot comes from the same former employee, I kick my self for that, so latter on the final buyer put them as prototypes on ebay and I paid for my mistake, I paid a lot of money but is worth it.
This could be a new sitcom with He-Man and Skeletor as one person
