|Chewbacca Unpainted 4-up Hardcopy (583-019)|
|The prototype shown here represents an example of a
4-up used in the production process for Kenner's Micro
Collection line. The 4:1 size difference in comparison to its production counterpart makes it a visually appealing prototype as far
as displayability. This particular Chewbacca pose is designated by the unique product number 583-019. The first three digits indicate its
presence in the Death Star Escape playset,
while the last three indicate the particular character/pose. The material most commonly used in the creation of micro 4-ups, including the
example seen here, is referred to as dynacast, a green colored urethane.|
Above we see the back of the 4-up.
The final photo shows the base bottom. Notice that air bubbles generated during the casting process have been meticulously filled in with a pink material.
