    i've completed my list, even my grails, and i find myself strugeling to find some things i may just like to own, so i've turned my sights on diaclones that were never released in Transformers. just for something to keep me busy i guess.

    first on the new "short" list, is the .44 magnum micro change robo.

    questions i have:

    1) is there a KO version i should be looking out for
    2) is there color variations
    3) does anyone have detailed pics of robot mode and gun modes?

    This one is a Taiwan version and has diecast metal parts. Don't know too much about him, but I do know that this version legs are pretty easy to snap.

    The left leg snapped like 5 years ago so I glued it back together and has held up pretty well since then. You can still transform him no prob. If you're still interested you can PM me. I think I even have the box but it's pretty beat up. But remember this is the Taiwan version.

    no no no, ko, as in bootleg. there's no way I'll ever be able to justify spending more than $200 on a figure, so I'd be forced to get a knock off. and no, I don't feel bad about wanting a ko :p

    i got my browning over at the all spark, from a moving sale. its the kingdom KO, but still, only paid $30 for it. i'm in the process of vectoring a set of reprolabels for reprolabels.com, i just wish i had an actuall transformer version of the sticker sheet to get the chest sticker not included in the diaclone version.

    looks like i've secured a magnum robo, thanx to DavidLoPan, so on to the next bot on the short list....

    Scope man !!!

    yeah, when you've got nothing else to collect, you go for that stuff that nobody wants. all the times ive seen a scopeman on ebay, it's always been for like $25 or $70 for a takara version, now that i WANT one, they've gon up in price.

    Magnum is awesome, i have the GiG (italian Takara licensed) release. He rocks. There is atleast one variation, which has a different coloured barrel, or a chrome barrel, i forget. I love all the gun TF's...

    I really wish they'd reissue those gunformers. I'm sure they'd be popular sellers (even if not in America), seeing as G1 Megatron has been reissued so many times.

    I hate zombie threads. They get you all excited about clicking links only to find they've been dead links FOR 5 YEARS.
