That prototype just looks so cool. Just even looking at it on my screen is out of my price range, though ;)

Hakes has some really unique pieces and prices to go with it which makes me write: Thank God for repro and Doc Mego!

Just curious about the Proto...It says the head is a resin cast head?? Isn't that a bit odd for a Proto back then? If I remember, some of the Apes Protos from the last big Ebay auctions that had protos had normal Mego heads with different sculpts or paint schemes. Resin Cast just seems a bid odd for an original Mego Proto. Maybe Brian can chime in on this.

Resin was quite common back then, it's just that so little has ever surfaced in the modern age. We get a lot of production samples but I personally own 3 or 4 prototypes that are made with resin and i got them from former Mego peeps. Here is one:
Memory cheats but I thought there was a resin headed Ralph Hinkley as well.

Is just the head a proto, or the whole figure? That looks like a standard factory made 12" Supes outfit. Or did they make that especially for the prototype too? Regardless, it's a great piece, wish I could afford something like that.
That Kresge carded RM Robin is sweet too!!!
