Special Models


  • The 1992 prototype Ben used James' face.
  • Interestingly, Some of Ben's earlier 2002 models had the ledge on the back, unlike most other 2002 models. He shares this trait with Bill and Duke.
  • Ben's 1992-2004 models were identical to Bill's 1992-2004 models, apart from their nameplates depicting their respective names, and Ben's pupils looking towards his right. Bill's pupils look towards his left. Curiously Ben's prototype's pupils looked towards his left, while Bill's prototype's pupils looked towards his right.
