    Question about original ARAH figures

    Were there any 3-Ups made or just 2-Ups? I haven't seen either size. Are there any listed on the Yo Joe site?

    On Joecustoms, there is a thread, where Gyre-Viper mentioned and showed a 3 or 4-up Blanka head. But he was also unsure, which size it was.

    So, as far as I know, there are no 3-ups. The reason for 2-up and 4-ups was to allow the sculptor to sculpt the details on the figure. Then that 2-up would go into a pantagraph machine which would create a copy of the sculptor at half the size, which was 3 3/4 inches.

    Sometimes when something fragile or highly detailed was needed, then Hasbro would create a 4-up.

    YoJoe does have images of 2-ups in the collectables section under preproduction.

    I have attached a picture of the version 2 Muskrat with a non-production color testshot of the figure for scale.

    I hope that helps.
