Test Shot Prototype - Unnamed Figure



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 above is a test shot made of a figure that was planned for production in 1995. The toyline was cancelled, so this figure was never produced. The entire figure is unpainted, and there is no date stamp. Note that the legs and waist were originally used to create Lamprey (1985).

While the figure itself has no name, some have speculated that it may be Battle Corps Rangers Flint - depicted in Battle Corps Rangers painted artwork. The 1995 Battle Corps Rangers subset would have seen a return to more traditional military themes for G.I.Joe, but the line was cancelled before they ever passed prototype stage.

Also found have been schematics used to create the figure.
