Unproduced - Dr. Mindbender



Action figures usually start as "Hard Copies". These models are used to create the molds, that are used to press out a run of "First shots" or "Test shots". These test shots are done in many different colors and lack a date stamp until the production run begins.

Pictured below are test shots made of a version of Dr. Mindbender that was planned for production in 1995. The 3-3/4" toyline was cancelled, so this figure was never produced. Picutred are the unpainted resin hard copy and the helmet that would have been included with Dr. Mindbender, and the painted hard copy, which would most likely be used as a paint master for the production color scheme. There is no date stamp on Dr. Mindbender.
