Do you have copies or would it @ all be possible to get some nice clear pictures of the information boards & design sheets?

There's a couple of prototypes illustrated that I've never seen before, a prototype of the Sealion & (behind the carded :kiwi: ) a large playset.. it could be :qforce: (?) as I can see what appears to be a periscope & large missile.

Cheers


I'll ask Bob & Brian what he's happy to share; I'm sure he'll be fine with it. He's in at the museum next week to remove his treasured possessions.

The Sealion prototype was Brian's, which was sent out to an external design agency for styling to the final model. The other you mention is a picture of an injection moulding machine, to give a flavour of the technology involved, so not an exciting, unseen concept I'm afraid.

By the way, if any one suddenly felt they wanted to see the display before it comes out, don't rush down, because the museum is on a two-week annual closed period, so unfortunately there's no public access!

Man, my eyesight must be getting bad.

It's all very nicely displayed, a unique slice of :AFLogo: history, it'd be absolutely amazing if this display could possibly be loaned out or recreated @ the next R.O.R.C. event in any form.

That' up to Bob - except for the production Sealion and Roboskull, it's all privately owned by Bob.

So, there's not only the :qforce: sealion prototype but the prototype art, what looks like the original concept art and story for :baron: (in a similar style to that of :skeletron: revealed at RORC), and possibly something like a smaller original piece of concept art for :wolf: ??

And loads more on the development of :AFLogo: :enemy: ?

That's a major score. 8) :perfectten:

Correct on all counts, plus series one figure concept art too. The Red Wolf art was just scaled down to show how a figure starts life. That's another that Bob did, in the style of Greg Hughes original Ironblood concept art that is the backdrop for case two.

Bob kindly agreed to share these more close-up shots, which illustrate the production process for an Action Force figure. You should be able to see the associated text. Clearly the mould in stage 4 was just an illustration and not an Action Force original. Enjoy.

Thanks for that, great stuff :)
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?
