*shakes his head* Not likely. The manufacturer, Matchbox, would not have
access to the same budget that the production staff had, unless someone at
Harmony Gold were a complete %$#^head. Any show's production team that were
to do this sort of thing would be very foolish, as the costs of building the
prototypes and then putting them into production would bankrupt the
production company. What happened is that when the line of Robotech toys
produced by Matchbox for Robotech failed miserably, Matchbox yanked the
budget, stranding production.
