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?
