In theory anything mass produced with a mold will have some prototypes as they test the mold, the plastics and the engineering of the figure. What we consider prototypes are mostly just test shots from a new mold.
Just not many are as coveted, sought after and distributed like Funko does. Most wind up in a Chinese factory bin or corporate office dumpsters. Back in the 90's I knew a guy who knew a guy who used to raid the Toy Biz office dumpsters for 5" Marvel test-shots/prototypes.
Yeah, I'm sure they have to exist they just aren't sought after. Someone has one, somewhere though
