TOMART'S ACTION FIGURE DIGEST (LIS PROTOTYPES AD)
I finally found that weird ad that appeared in Action
Figures Digest, #71, the January 2000 issue (it
actually came out in December 1999).
The ad is on the back cover, and I noticed that the
Jupiter-2, and the 2 foot Robot are reverse images
(check out the hatch on the Jupiter, and the soil door
on the Robot's treads).
But the weirdest thing of all, is the unusually
colored 10 inch Robot in the lower right-hand corner.
It was never produced! If they were going to make it,
wouldn't it have made more sense to make an
Anti-Matter version instead of trying to make it
sort-of-appear like a Remco toy?
(Editor's Note) Believe it or not, Trendmasters was
planning on releasing an all red Robot for every 30
Robot's per case shipped. Sadly, these Robots were
never made by Trendmasters.
