@G-Man - Can You PLEASE answer a question that has been unanswered for over 30 yrs. When the SENTINELS made their Debut in X-Men #14 they were coloured (the recognised) Purple and Mauve BUT in #15 and #16 They Are Gold, Red andPurple - Was #14 a mistake - which they corrected in #15 and #16 - BUT Feedback was so great they decided to go with the Purple and Mauve when NEAL ADAMS introduced the MK II's.
Subsequently, 1994 to be precise - on the back cover of T.O.M.I.T.T. X-MEN - Sentinel is depicted in the Gold, Purple and Red AND in 1995 on the reprint of the ORIGINAL run, they are depicted Throughout in the Gold, Purple and Red - WAS this purely Nostalgia OR an Attempt to correct a 47 yr old Mistake.
There is Only ONE Survivor of the QUINtessencial team that worked on the Introductory story of the SENTINELS - Unfortunately the rigours of time have left Him unable to shed any light on the mystery.
I enjoyed Your summary on the Sentinels, the SENTINELS are to the X-men, what the DALEKS are to the Doctor and the BORG are in the STAR TREK franchise, Cold, Logical, Relentless, without compassion driven by domination, destruction and assimilation (for "knowledge is power").

I wonder if You can Help me - You posted the article on MARVEL DIGITAL HOLIDAY SPECIAL #1 - my name is Rocco Pace (trask-01 on this site) of TRASK LEGACY - I am a collector of ALL X-Men items that feature the SENTINELS - I wish to add this item to my collection - to the best of my knowledge they have NOT reproduced it in physical print e.g. the SPIDER-MAN issue - Any help or suggestions most appreciated.
@philnoir: Hi Philnoir My name is Rocco (trask-01) of TRASK LEGACY - Since the inception of the X-Men mythology 45 years ago there have been approx. 130 configurations of SENTINEL to date (AND a handful I've yet to catalogue fully).
