Hi, does anyone know if there was an unreleased Oktober Guard fig? Thought I saw something fairly recently on E-Bay, but I forget the details? I seem to recall a giant "X" on the back of the fig....I guess to show it was a prototype.

Anyone remember?

Thanks,
Eric

Are you talking like 25th? There is the canceled 25th Red Star...
but that's it as far as anything that has ever surfaced for the 25th-to-now-era.

What Gyre posted is the only thing i know of. Wish I could have gotten my hands on one of those test shots.. that ranks up there with the CS Scarlett as missed opportunities.

Yes, 25th......I thought it was a Red Star too, but wasn't he part of a comic pack? So thus, released? Was it a different sculpt?

Well not an entire new sculpt.. They added the newer duke arms instead of the suicide wrist. he was going to be a single card version of the CP character in his original 91' colors.

That would've been sick! I would've gotten that figure for sure! I love Red Star! I love his rocket launcher most of all! He was cool in the cartoon but I don't think they called him Redstar in it though.
