Luke Bespin 1:1 Prototypes
In this photo are grouped quite a few different incarnations of one of the several Micro Collection Luke Bespin figure prototypes. The earliest one is located at the far right corner of the display stand. It's a lead casting of an early conceptual sculpt of the figure, generally referred to by collectors as a "Partha" figure due to its being co-created by the gaming company bearing that name. (It's actually likely that this figure belongs to the Dagobah set for which Partha made some early prototypes, but it resembles the dueling Luke Bespin figure to such a degree that this hardly matters.) Next earliest are the clear plastic and painted metal figures visible in the foreground. These are all examples of the first 1:1 prototype created to test the Micro Collection line. Click here for more information on this figure. As you can probably see, the painted examples all differ slightly in color. The rest of the figures are either paint variants, 1:1 resin squeezings or simple unpainted examples of the production figure. It's definitely a nice grouping of stuff.
