I'm not sure what you're questioning, Joe. It looks to me like one of those overwrought airbrush illustrations more than an odd prototype pic. The arms are in the back position and look like they're too far away from the body - bad artist's rendering. The perspective of the feet looks off too. Would have to see the actual catalog page for sure to know what's actually going on.

The description does say "Finished in two-toned (something) gloss enamel." Has to be a nickel plate that matches the on/off chest piece. Since they also did the silver MECHANIZED, it's not out of the realm of possibilities that there would be a hybrid. But why release a photo of this for marketing when they knew the bulk would be all black? Seems odd...

Interesting that is says "Operated on MEDIUM flashlight batteries." Definitely not short legs pictured, though.

Like their made up name - PLANET X.

That looks cool! How big is the scale? What did you make the saucers out of?

For anyone stopping by LA, there's a great exhibit of Harryhausen original models at the Academy in Beverly Hills going through August 22. I was hoping to see more from EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS, but they did have two original saucers and some of Ray's original storyboard drawings.
