Transformers Artifact of the Week: Unreleased Dr. Wu Sharkticon

DSC03615In 2011 it was announced that third party Transformers toy maker Dr. Wu was making a non-transforming Sharkticon (I’ve seen it called both Shark Clone and Sharkticlone).  Due to how delicate it was, it was never released.  I’m unclear how many prototypes were made, but I don’t believe it was very many.  As you can see in the picture, this one is broken.  The tail broke off in such a way that I couldn’t get it glued back on, so I had to put tape on it.  It’s also broken at the end of the tail where the mace is, but the glue held on that.

It’s a very cool looking toy, very accurate to the Sharkticon animation from the movie.  It’s too bad it was so fragile that it couldn’t be produced.

Thanks for reading!

I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.

    It’s pretty cool, considering it doesn’t transform. I wish I could find an unbroken one.

    We missed you at Dairycon. Hope you’re feeling better.

    I saw a bunch of these sell on ebay about a year ago. Cheap. Regretted not snatching on them.
