This is a wild discovery! Everyone is careful to note that it's currently unclear as to what project this was born from, and it will be very fascinating regardless of what it turns out to be. Personally, I do theorize it stems from pre-production of the Ruby-Spears cartoon, given that it focuses on Gutsman, Cutman, and Protoman as villains. It would bridge the gap between the initial, very game-faithful promotional video and the oddly muscular final product. It's as if reception of the preview video was skeptical, and they began retooling the designs to make it more appealing to "boys ages 6-12."
