21CT 1:18 SCALE "M109 PALADIN PROTOTYPE" on ebay

Post by c44 » Sun Mar 21, 2021 10:51 pm

The seller who had the 21 CT French Government Building prototype for sale on ebay now lists an unassembled M109 in 1/18...

The item is a mess and the description reads like it was written to scare people off, but I would love to know the story behind it, I had never heard of this piece being planned...THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN SO COOL!!!

He also has listed some figures that never made it to market, some good, some not...here's one of the better ones:

WOW! That figure is interesting. Looks like a 3rd world terrorist/Bond villain.
What kind of machine gun does he have in his hand?
The pistol belt almost looks like it is a canvas material.

The gun looks to be AK47 with a BETA C mag

Not worthy of a separate post, but interesting enough, this seller now lists a 21CT prototype 1/6 M3 scout car troop carrier notable mostly in that it's made of wood!

Makes me wonder what other unrealized products 21st had up their sleeves...

"Makes me wonder what other unrealized products 21st had up their sleeves..."

I'm sure there were plenty of ideas kicked around back then, wish tko - area21 precedent
would fill us in on some of the products they were working on.

I think this Scout Car "Prototype" is something TTT would have loved in his collection.

Yah, TTT's collection qualified as a small museum...this would have been right up his alley...!

And somebody should write a book on the history of 21CT...although I'd probably cry at the ending... :wink:

It would have been an awesome line. They look a little clunky on the sculpting, but cool concept.

I bought the Sahara prototype toys from the seller, the ones that appear on the back of the sahara action figure boxes.

A different seller has listed a "1:18 Ultimate Soldier- Unreleased Prototype- SWAT- Resin Figure" along with resin prototypes of early 1/32 21CT figures---at a very reasonable price...scoop 'em up, somebody!!! Again has me wondering how many unseen 21CT products were at least a step further than conceptualization... :?: :?: :?:
