Logray Painted First Shot
On the left of this photo is a very interesting first shot of the Logray figure. It was injection molded in a whitish plastic and then painted with a rather dark and glossy paint. It was probably shot overseas by one of Kenner's production vendors and returned to the company for use as a photo and display sample.

The accessories are quite interesting, as they are made of a much more flexible type of plastic than that which was used to mold the production versions. Their consistency falls somewhere in between that of the production accessories and that of those affiliated with the internal first shot of the figure seen here.

Here you see the backs of, on the left, the first shot, and, on the right, the production figure. Note the lack of dates and copyright information on the prototype.

Lastly, we have a shot of the bottoms of the figure's feet. They have dried dabs of hot glue stuck to them. The figure must have been used in a Kenner presentation of some sort, perhaps even at Toy Fair 1983.
