    Pretty much since the first release of the Transformers brand in 1984, there have been figures who have made it into the prototype, test shot and packaging stage, but never released to the mass market. Just about every franchise line has at least one unreleased figure.

    So my question to all of you is, who amongst you has been lucky enough to obtain any of these unreleased toys?

    Do you have pics? Please share. I'm very interested in knowing just how many people ever manage to get their hands on these things.

    I can't remember the web site but someone owns the G1 Cartoon colored Astrotrain that was in all the catalog's back in the day. Now that is something i'd love to own.

    yeah, the Astrotrain from this picture

    It doesn't transform but its in the correct colors. I wonder why Hasbro decided to roll with the white.

    Wait, it doesn't transform? I guess it was just an early display model? Were the other toys in that catalog the same?

    I've got a couple of The Fallens from ROTF from the factory that are stamped "Not For Sale", nothing special but it's the closest I can come to anything like that. I'm really wishing I would have bought some of those TFA Thundercrackers back in November, but whatta ya do?

    There's a couple of sale threads in the Toy section for Gunbarrel, Reverb and Backtrack, three toys that were supposed to have been part of the 2007 movie line, but were never released.

    IIRC doesn't Transfan2 own a legit and custom set of those?

    I know G2 Protectobots had very limited numbers and were never released (with the exception of Hot Spot, he never had a G2 prototype).

    I have:

    Space Warp with Space Minicon Team (I found this last December at the mall 25 minutes from my house, he was only $50 - they thought it was OTCC Astrotrain)

    Henkei Black Convoy

    Henkei Test Shot Crystal Convoy (the colors are different than the release version)

    Henkei Blue Bumblebee

    I can post pictures over the weekend if anyone wants to see them.

    Attack of the clones, aahhhhh!

    Did anyone ever manage to get their hands on those few Transtech prototypes? (Cheetor, Screamer...?) I'm guessing no.
