Greetings. I have recently acquired a 1979 Kenner Megabug Gladiators Scorpion which shows some very different qualities from the standard production version. In the pictures below I am referring to the toy on the left side - the orange plastic is a little more creamy in color and has no painted details, the claws and legs are a noticeably brighter shade of red, the driver is a darker shade of blue, the wheel rims and ball at the end of the tail are red, and most importantly - there are no copyright or COO markings on its belly or anywhere. I believe this toy to be a prototype/first shot and I'm hoping someone can help me confirm this. Megabug Gladiators are rare toys in general and there is not much information about them online. The one thing I did notice is that the Scorpion in the 1979 Kenner Catalog has a red ball at the end of its tail which has been painted blue, as one can see the red wearing through at the raised points. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
