Same figure + two heads = twice as much fun!

Yeah, there's nothing about him that screams "Raven version" at all. In fact, his burned hand would mean he's not from the Raven scene (except for the very, very end.)

The figure was going to be released with two heads. The protos that have showed up, however, only have him with the one melty one.

It really hurts to see these again! You know, with the excpetion of Marion's "cankles", these are some really beautiful figures! Look at Sapito's face...man, that is Alfred Molina! I really, really hope Hasbro finds a way to get these out there.

There are not many sets left...Mine, Les's, and this one are all I have heard of..I know there will be a couple of others.

One collector offered as much as $5k for my set last fall...I hope he sees that thread since mine aren't for sale.

Looks like a couple more of the "lost" figures have surfaced.

And this time, everyone can join the fun.

In a bold partnership between myself, originator of the "Tough Sergeant" prototype head offer and the supremely talented customizer extraordinaire Inky Skin, a limited number of prototype heads will soon be available!

Choose either that lovable turncoat Satipo or the iconic "Melty" headed Toht!

Hey, gang! We're going to be accepting orders up until the end of the month (aka the end of the week, aka Sunday aka Halloween.)

So don't delay! I don't know if we will be able to offer these in the future.

Don't miss your chance to own a sadly forgotten piece of Indy history!

Thanks to everyone for the response so far!

Maybe the recent news of the possible 3D release of the Indy films will finally get this wave on shelves!

Either that or the announcement that they are moving forward with another movie. That's when we'll probably see the Blu Ray release and the unreleased waves coming down the pipe. That's still years away though... probably 2013 before we really see Indy on the shelves again, no?

Hi Lance Quazar!

Do you have some new about the heads? Can't wait! :-)

I'm hoping that there might be enough of a fandom for Indy next year for Raiders 30th that we might be lucky enough to see these released. Maybe its a pipe dream, but who knows?

Even a limited release with a higher price-point aimed at collectors would be most welcome.

Just let us have those production figures, Hasbro!

It's a long shot, but I would also love to see these released next year to coincide with the 30th anniversary of ROTLA. This would work best as a boxed set - maybe as a retail exclusive or a comic book store/Diamond exclusive?!

I'd also like the extremely difficult to find TOD figures (from 2008) re-released in a similar way - a boxed set of these would be nice as well.

I've got that entire set in triplicate and I still would've bought it again if Target would've released a rope bridge cinema scene the way they did with Raiders, Crusade and Skull.

Those look fantastic. The painting really brings out the great sculpts. The Mechanic even looks like he's got a broken nose.

Makes it even more frustrating that we never got to see them go into production.

Those are simply incredible. My God.
Is it known if those are custom painted?

They look really nice!

So glad I was able to land a German Mechanic prototype figure. It was my Christmas present, "from me to me".
LOL!
