So I got a nice letter from Calvin, former head honcho at Flatt World last night correcting a couple of points from my piece and sending me a much better photo of the Zorro prototype that I have featured above.
The most interesting new insight I gained was that it was planned to have the Flatt World Zorro figure be in the Sony DVD menu of “The Mask of Zorro”. This would have been a ground breaking promotion for the time.
Calvin also went on to add that this was the figure he was most sad not to see go into production. He also believed the character’s international popularity would have seen this be their biggest hit. The only way to win that argument is likely to join his side.
This photo reinforces how nice the figure would have been.
