Duke

Description:

Pictured above is a prototype version of Duke (1993) as the figure appeared in a Hasbro product catalog. Note the extensive use of metallic paints and the lack of a visor on the helmet. Also, the missile used is a painted version of one that came with Heavy Duty (1991).


Additional Images:

Pictured above is the silhouette of Duke (1993) as the figure appeared in the 1993 yearly insert catalog. The 1993 catalog used several silhouettes as placeholders for figures to come. The Armor Tech images appear to be silhouettes of production art rather than of actual figures. However, the description that accompanied these images gave some indication of features that were dropped before production. Originally referred to as the "Star Brigade Fighters" rather than "Star Brigade Armor Tech," each figure was intended to feature body-activated lights and sounds as well as spring-fired weapons. It should also be noted that the same silhouette that was used for Duke was also used for Gears (1994).
