Pictured above is the prototype for Sabre Tooth. While the figure was
intended to be a new character using the mold of Firefly
(1984) as a part of the 1988 Tiger Force line up, the idea was most
likely abandoned due to the figure's mold being temporarily licensed
for use in foreign countries.
While the concept was abandoned in 1988, the idea was revisited in
2003 when Hasbro released a Tiger Force set that included Wreckage,
a figure based on the unproduced figure from fifteen years beforehand.
While slight color differences exist between the two, Wreckage was a
dream come true for collectors who had long given up hope of ever seeing
this figure produced.
Also of note is the Collectors Guide that was available mail-order
from Hasbro Direct in 1993. It lists the unproduced Sabre Tooth, Rip
Cord, and Wild Bill
as members of Tiger Force.
