Back in the Rogue Trader era Games Workshop produced the RTB01 Space Marines, a boxed set of multipart Space Marines in plastic. They were and still are today a very popular kit. Multipart kits of Space Marines following the RTB01 model with multiple options of heads, bodies, arms, guns, knives, backpacks etc were only produced in plastic, right? Well it seems not. At least one multipart Space Marine set was produced entirely in metal, but was never released. Fortunately it was discovered in Tim Pollard's collection:
Here's a close-up of the two head options:
Unfortunately Tim doesn't remember much about the history of this set except that it was given to him at the time he was working there, and he was told it was rare! So, what do you think? What can you Space Marine experts tell us about the various components and minutiae of this kit? What weapon options do you see? What mark of Space Marine, if any, do you think this is? Please share your thoughts.
Have a good Christmas, and I'll be back later in the week to share another unreleased and unseen Space Marine with you.
