One Man's Trash...
Here we have the junkyard theme. Two designs from 1990, both curiously called Junkman, one by Mike and the other by Jim. Playmates passed on both.
A third design, submitted to Mirage in the fall of 1991, featured a junkyard robot made from cast off stereo equipment. Mirage passed on that one.
Playmates even went so far as to have their rendition sculpted up for presentation.
They would do this sometimes when they felt particularly strong about a certain character. Still, no deal.
