|8D8 Unpainted First Shot|
|8d8 is one of only two 33/4" action figures to have been sculpted as "2-ups," or at twice their production scale. As you can tell from a look at a re-cast of the original 8d8 hardcopy, it's just about 8 inches tall. The figure subsequently was scaled down during the creation of production tooling. This first shot (which is pictured beside a standard production figure) represents an early test of that tooling. It's shot in a non-production combination of tan and brown plastics, and has neither holes in its feet nor the date/copyright information on its leg.
Here's a look at the figure's back.
