Wow, didn't even know Hasdon't had gone ahead with a prototype of the mine car. Nice detail,and scale. Twice now the most fun playset of the series has been canceled. A three pack of dusty and disheveled Indy, Willie and Shorty would have been too much to take.....*luckilyIhavemyown*
While I think there is an excellent chance this is all faked, wouldn't it be great if they did another exclusive item for the 30th Anniversary of TOD? Maybe just a mine cart with a couple of figures, sell it at Comic Con....?
As history showed, they would sell out in seconds on HTS if nothing else.
That would make an excellent exclusive;let's hope Hasbro handled it a little better than the lost Raiders wave,however, (doubles of the same character packaged in, paint flaking off shortly after being opened,etc.)
I can't believe no one has snapped up that mine car; a few orders for someone with the ability to mold copies, and the thing would pay for itself. Has anyone requested proof these are Hasbro molds?
My days of wasting big bucks on prototypes is over.
While I don't think I'd get burned like I did buying the "lost wave" protos (as I can't imagine this will ever get a release), I do have an extremely spiffy mine cart in my collection already. At least as good as Hasbro's.
