Mego prototype walking Twiki figure

Mego Designer Tory Mucaro happily elaborated on the process, the figure is made of Carbolon casting material used at Mego. He mentions ” I would guess the original pattern was sculpted on the outside, and we poured RTV molds and cast duplicates to be used as sales samples”

This item was purchased from a former Mego sales person, so it makes perfect sense.
