Ggripptogg Vintage Prototype Picture Unveiled!

This week we’re taking a look at another one of the vintage toy photographs brought to us by Andrew Leung, Sacramento toy collector and owner of Toy Fusion.

This Ggripptogg prototype shows some significant paint differences from the final production figures. The red and black paint used on the prototype is far glossier, which makes sense, since in the final production figures the red, black and gray plastic pieces were simply molded in appropriately-colored plastic with additional details painted on top. This photograph appears to show a fully hand-painted prototype that has been painted with glossy paint.

In this prototype, the green blaze on the biceps and arms that is seen in the production figures is missing completely. In addition, the two green knobby protrusions on the figure’s forehead and the small details under the belt that are painted on the prototype, were not painted on the final figure.
