Comic Book Series (1991)
Griffin, along with Haniver of the 2006 series were the only 2 monsters with a prototype version released in early production. The prototypes are very difficult to get ahold of but were not that visually different. It is unknown why only these 2 figures had prototypes and why they were actually released to the market.
