    This is a great post! Waht a source of information. I can only agree with GSJ and thank you, Jeddah!

    As for the prototype figs, I happen to have a prototype fig of the tie fighter pilot with the George Lucas head and I can confirm that the likeness between the figure and GL is awesome. Also, the details on the suit and the removable helmet are mindblowing and do not match up with the figure that actually came with the tie interceptor at all. The paint job is so good you can count individual hairs in george's moustache.
    Finally, the proto fig is about 10% bigger than the final figure. It is made out of some kind of hard plastic, not ivory, which suggest to me that it must be a cast from a (ivory?) sculpt and there might be more of these around (but I would think not too much more). It has been suggested to me that these proto's where the ones used for the trade shows like toyfair and perhaps for the picture on the back of the box (but mine is not the pic on the back of the box for sure!)
