The ponder theory on pricing is going to be £20 or so.

Here is a higher res version of the image and you can see quite a lot of the detail of the figure, this looks like a proto to me, the modeller has used orange clay for the body from the finger prints and areas where the clay has missed the joints of the shoulder.

It's a large format so don't try to upload on a phone, may take a while.

God what is going on in the heads of these designers with this blocky crappy vintage look?

At least the vintage looked good at the time, but these just look worse than the vintage ever did! My god's are Hasbro smoking herbal recreational substance when designing those?
