Prototypes, Rarities & One Offs

This section is for prototypes, rarities, one offs and special orders.  

 

Over the course of time new ideas would have come forward and prototypes created, some would make it to final production others were scrapped.

Reasons for not making it to final production could range from too expensive to didnt work well as a puppet.  Some puppets may have only had a short run (usual runs of SL types were 40).  

 

Puppets such as the 63 Tortoise may have only been made for that initial run which most likely were shipped in America before the UK release, if a puppet sales perfomed badly its likely no more would have been made.

Here are some of those.
