Underground Toys 12” Talking Plush Prototypes ( Unproduced Samples)

Designed by Just Play Toys, these unproduced samples had been created for an agreement between Just Play Toys and Underground Toys, to be sold by Underground Toys. When designed, the samples were sent to Underground Toys for comments and approval. The samples measure 12” tall and are missing the tag that would normally be attached to the side, the “I Talk” tag has not been applied and the weapon is very different than the version that had been produced. The sounds that were used for these samples are rougher in clarity and more drawn out. The samples came in a clear bag, a comment sheet for “first round approval” and a tag noting “sample” as well. These are the first plush prototypes I have had the opportunity to add to my collection and I am extremely excited for these additions.

Woolsworth 8 Pack MISB (UKG 90%)

So I admit it, I'm a baggie geek. However and with that being said, I never could have imagined adding a Woolsworth 8 pack to my collection. Heck, I did not even know they existed until about seven years ago when a collector posted a picture of one on Rebelscum. Though they looked odd, I have to admit they looked so awesome.

Unlike most of the Woolsworth 8 packs I have seen over the years, mostly on Facebook, specifically Frank's awesome Baggie Group, recently renamed Baggietastic Collecting Corner, this one is extra special. Based on information from the seller, this is one of three known sealed Woolies (Woolsworth) 8 packs with the figures sealed in individual baggies. The Jawa being one of the eight, makes it even better. The 8 pack has been graded by UKG (90%) and is sealed in a custom case.

The pack includes the following:

Palitoy Baggies:
Jawa (Palitoy I)
C3PO (Removable Limbs version)
Hammerhead (Palitoy B)
AT-ST Driver
Rebel Commando

Kenner Baggie
Gamorrean Guard (Made In Mexico)

To say over the moon is an understatement how excited I am as I post this. This is a true centerpiece for my collection and I cannot thank the seller enough for letting me add it to my collection.

POTF2 Ronto Jawa First Shot

I have to admit that after fifteen years of collecting or focusing on Jawas, I still get giddy when I find something that I have been looking to add to my collection for a very long time. Though being one of the most overproduced Beast Packs for the POTF2 line, finding any pre-production stuff for the Ronto or Jawa from that line is very hard. To date, I can think of a few box flats, one bagged sample,which I own and a few pictures of the very first shot that I am extremely happy to add to my collection.

The figure is molded in yellow (Back and Front Torso) and Black (Head, Arms and Bottom Torso) and is absolutely gorgeous. The figure is devoid of any copyright information and is sonic welded, so it cannot be taken apart. I doubted the figures existence for a long time, until a random picture showed up of this very figure being displayed in of all places, a Japanese Clothing Store where the owner displayed this amazing run of POTF2 prototypes.

Here is a picture of the other pre-production items that I have managed to obtain over the years for the Ronto and Jawa Beast Pack. A Box Flat (back), bagged sample (front) and same first shot. I am very happy to finally add this figure to my collection.
