Duke

Description:

Pictured above is a mock-up prototype of Duke (1997). The most noteworthy difference is the use of the original arms and waist, which were not available for production.


Additional Images:

Another version of Duke was featured in an earlier concept for a boxed figure set. It featured a completely different paint scheme as pictured above.

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. Because this first shot was pressed from an existing mold, it has a date stamp. On the inside of the left leg is a date stamp "1988 Hasbro". On the seat of his pants is "Made in India - Funskool".
