Sure will.
Hope it's not just a regular Luke/Yoda dipped in grey paint.   :-\

Had a chat with the seller before and he said:
"Yes, I am very sure that this figure is a genuine prototype figure by Medicom. It is made of high quality plastic, detailed sculpture with even edge and shape while the knockoff doesn't. This Luke & Yoda Kubrick prototype is an extremely rare item and it is the only one I've ever came across!"

He also mentioned he had some other Kube prototypes, but no more SW.

Well I hope my opinion is wrong but wouldn't you think Medicom would have destroyed or taken better care of the prototypes at the very least? To think someone possibly dug thru the dumpster to get these sounds far fetched. Although these could have come from an employee. But i think that would be dangerous to sell for that person. Prototypes (genuine) are rarely seen on Ebay and fetch for a lot of money. Although there are lots and lots of so called prototypes on Ebay, one can assume most are fake. With technology the way it is, im sure it's quite possible to make or simply repaint over one. The common collector including myself, would have no clue if it was real or fake but throw in the word prototype and waalaa. I hope i'm wrong just think not practical for this seller to have that many and it really didnt fetch all that much. Do they only make 1 prototype? or more?

To the winner - please post pics. I bid on this early on, but knew I'd never end up in the running. I would love to see what you get!

Those are some terrific comparison shots man.  In your first photo you have a third Luke Dagobah - is that just a custom?

It is the first one I bought, thinking it was the real one from the box set.
Later, after reading a post about fakes and scams, I realized it had the wrong hair and lightsaber.
Then I got the real one, and now the Prototype.
