Roboskull Blueprints - Variants

Following on from the discussion at

Eisenblut wrote that

The Baron wrote:In the BFTB toys archive is a promotional Roboskull blueprint that differs from the one boxed with the toy. On the back is a handwritten signature for Baron Ironblood. Do you know anything about this piece and please could you share if so?

So, this is the boxed blueprint

I'm sure I got both together with my first Roboskull at Xmas 1984. Not sure if it was signed. Was going to post on this thinking that both came with the Roboskull, but:

He told me that he met Ironblood because he won some kind of contest at a toy shop . i will see if i can get him to email me the picture or join the site.

Think mine are signed in marker pen so assumed they were signed in store by someone in character. The guy who i got them off said they were from a promo event in a toy shop.


So ...

Did everyone with the variant Roboskull prints get them via a non-boxed route?

Probably my parents bought the kit for Xmas and got the signed poster at an in-toy store promotion as Buddusky says. Dad then probably put them in the box and resealed it ... Strangely enough may have been from Fenwicks too.

Surely we would have heard about this before ...

... maybe the memories have been repressed

... or there are photos of scared parents with Eisenblut

:quarrel: "HELP! MY BABY NOOOOOOO!"

etc.
