You may be right that the clown is a prototype because of so many differences .

But most of the ones that are only slightly different and you can see they have been “fixed” are the ones I was speaking about. Like replacing the rhinestones and they didn't get the color right or glueing back the enamel.

I spoke with a dealer last week that goes to the warehouse sales and I was told he would buy solids with missing stones and replace them.
I was also told that EL is now going to limit sales to 6 items per buyer at the warehouse sale so maybe the market will not be so flooded or maybe the buyers will just take all their friends with them.

Anyway a prototype is one thing , a repaired solid is another. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

There is now also a market for fake prototypes. <img src='style_emoticons//unsure.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’unsure.gif’ />

EL shows us a film at convention of the prototypes and it is very interesting. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />
