So are these "prototypes" on ebay...

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

So are these "prototypes" on ebay...

Just that? Or are they basically loose carded samples? Just curious if anyone who'd bought one knows if there is copyright info on them anywhere?

Edit: that was kinda vague. The movie toys are what I'm referring to and basically just asking (besides the Starscream that was posted that read "NOT FOR SALE" on the wing) are these any different than what I'd pull off a card come June.

Thanks

It depends on how early we saw them.
The very early ones will have less paint applications, maybe non functional gimmicks, if they are really early etc.. Then they are considered Protoypes

But as we get closer to release date, they are probably run samples which will differ slightly if at all from the final product. And we know them as Test-Shots which is just to say they are having test runs in the machine before the full scale production. So maybe colors will be slightly off at best.

Most of the ones we've seen lately will be no different than what you will get from your local Target or TRU in June.
