Hi my name is Martin and are new to the group, i recently got chatting to one of your moderators, Jim as i was successful in some of the vectis auctions, whilst unpacking my wins i noticed a strange red shadow as his head was an unusual mould and he had black gloves. I immediately began to search for images of the figure i was holding and could not find any, thats when i decided to contact Jim . Its taken us a couple of days , but i am delighted as a 30 year long action force collector to unveil my holy grail. What you are looking at is a prototype red shadow on a pre production mock up card with preproduction weapon and ammo. Jim very kindly contacted Bob Brechin who the lot came from and he confirmed this is 1 of 1 produced and the first carded prototype on pre production card to ever be discovered, enjoy the images, thanks, mart.

Very different head sculpt you can see the german soldier in it as there is no box attached to the back of the helmet yet.

Wow...that is amazing.

However....looking at the auction yours isn't the only one!

Lot3496 which sold for £60 has this red shadow....as does lot3499 which sold for £35!

See pictures attached. So who has the other? Have you checked the backs of other figures you won to see if any others are pre-prod?

Also on the one with space figures the front black straps dont stay back all the way to the trouser top as mine is because it was hand painted

You could be right. But be nice to check them all out.

Is yours resin or metal? What about the weapons?
