Transformers Artifact of the Week: Unreleased Dr. Wu Sharkticon
In 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.
