Vlix Painted First Shot
Vlix, perhaps a bit unjustly, is the most notorious unproduced Droids figure. This is because the figure was released in very limited quanities in Brazil during the last years of the '80s, as part of the Glasslite company's line of Droids toys. The figure you see here, however, is not the Brazilian version; rather, it's a Kenner prototype, produced at a time at which Vlix was still planned for release in the States. As you can see, the figure would have come with your standard AT-AT Driver gun. Maybe it's just me, but Vlix has always reminded me of that 7-Up "un-cola" guy.

Here's the back. Apparently, the mold this was produced from had not yet had the date/copyright details added to it.
