    I wouldn't count on it, but would love to see one.

    not likely. when it has to add the red barrel tip and the aggravation dealing with customs in other countries, it just doesn't make financial sense at the moment.

    Not in the states, that's for sure.
    The orange tip & customs probs would ruin the chances.
    Sorry.

    You probably wouldn't like Browning then, he's not Diaclone. Like Megatron, Soundwave, Perceptor, Blaster, and most of the early tapes, Browning is from Microman.

    Browning has always seemed like a cool toy, but I'd say reissue odds are slim. Tomy has only done one reissue from the Japanese G1 era, and that was a Convoy. Browning is too obscure to warrant a reissue unless Tomy starts to run out of reissue-able molds.

    Kind of a shame if you think about it, cause Browning does a much better job going from robot to gun mode than Megatron does. I have a knockoff of Browning, but I would love to see an official reissue. Transformer guns are very cool IMO.

    Close. but actually it is from Micro Change. a subset of Microman. just details that is all.

    Well you guys can find one. I found one. Takara brand too. Traded a Titanium Galactica ship for it haha. My friend got it in a toy lot and doesnt collect TFs.

    i have one, it's cool. i also sell the browning repro stickers sheets.

    browning hasn't been seen or heard from since masterforce, and even then was hard to find.

    he's one bad ass mother F#@ker too. he'll be one of the last tf's i sell when i get that desperate.
