PROTOTYPE MAJOR. DON WEST ACTION FIGURE #02
Trendmasters designed action figures of the whole family, but not everyone made the final cut.
For the Don West action figure, a utility belt was designed and prototypes made and plastic
molds were created.
This is the earliest test shot of the belt and tools. There was pegs designed to hold the drill,
pistol and rifle not yet added here in the early development prototype. The rifle here is custom
made to fit this belt. Later cancelled, a new rifle was made for the retail toy which is bigger
and has no holder for the belt. So the rifle here is also an UN-Produced accessory.
The helmet shown here is also in early prototype test stage with no pegs to fit face mask to helmet.
This is truly a beautiful and rare set. Only a dozen or so was put together.
