Experiment 1006 Background
The Playtime Corporation creates Experiment 1006 or The Prototype or The Claw. Also, its creation date is presumed to be earlier than the creation of Huggy Wuggy – a little monstrous toy.
Unlike other popular Poppy Playtime Toys, The Experiment 1006 was a mysterious yet super intelligent mechanical entity. As for the true spirit of the antagonist, it appears to be incredibly dangerous and is also thought to be the leader of other vengeful toys.
Also, there are some speculations roaming over the internet about this mechanical entity that has gained enough attention from gamers.
Experiment 1006 Appearance
Appearance-wise, the Prototype is quite complicated, as it resembles humans and crabs at the same time. The body’s trunk is somewhat human-like, with all the bones of the rib cage in the chest and the appendages attached to the main trunk. Like the superior appendages, the backbone area is covered with red wires.
Moreover, its face and superior appendages give a robotic appearance. Also, his eyes are dark red, and the teeth are sharp saw-edged. Coming to the arms, the region above the elbow is a vast black mass covered with red wires, and the area below the elbow is just like human arms, with the bones exactly like the ulna and radius. Furthermore, his hand resembles the claw of the crab, with five finger-like segments.
Also, gamers have noticed that its legs are similar to arms, the portion above the knee joint is robotic and covered with red wires, and the inferior part is human-like, with the bones resembling a tibia and fibula. The feet of the Prototype are more like paws than actual feet.
Experiment 1006 Personality
The personality of the Prototype is still a myster for the Poppy Playtime fans as we have seen several virtues through his short yet impactful debut in the game. Such as, violence, intelligence, sharpness, and manipulation are the most significant vistures that we noticed through his performance.
It is important to mention here that although, the Experiment 1006 is a mechanical entity, Mommy Long Legs call him a male.
Precisely speaking, he is a sharp, cunning robotic character with an extreme sense of planning and manipulation that is the tru spirit of any mechanical entity. Also, he is seen to use fellow characters and the player to achieve his needs and destroy other experiments and characters.
Experiment 1006 is known to be violent for his brutallity for the scientists who was studying him as a unique mechanical entity. Moreoover, we have seen him sharp and intelligent as he can mold things according to its needs and use them for its benefit; for example, it utilized a digital clock to form a laser pointer, which was later used as an escape tool by the Prototype.
Also, we have seen that Experiment 1006 strengthens his body by picking parts of other characters and toys throughout the factory and incorporating them into his own body to enhance his power and physical abilities.
Experiment 1006 Death
This evil-doer character from Poppy Playtime is still alive, as we have not witnessed his death. Instead, one of the VHS tapes states that he murdered the scientist researching this brilliant mechanical identity.
Experiment 1006 Speculations
There are three significant speculations which are mentioned below.
It is speculated that The Prototype is trying to save the kids and experiments from Playtime Co.
- Experiment 1006 is mainly about saving kids from the factory owners in one of the VHS tapes in Chapter 1, and he says that “Coordination and cooperation are in his skillset.”
- This mechanical entity represents Elliot Ludwig, the CEO of Playtime Co, who wanted to make himself immortal through any means.
For this purpose, he worked on experiment 1006 and transplanted his brain into a robotic character so that he could live forever in that character’s body. The result of experiment 1006 was the Prototype, a brilliant and cunning antagonist of Poppy Playtime.
Also, his appearance ( entangled human bones in the wires) shows that he was once human.
- Initially, it was created to be a living toy for children. However, it later exposed his vengeful and extremely dangerous side. He later succeeds in escaping the factory and killing the scientist studying him.
