    I've a terrible softspot for Gun Robos, in large part because i know they'll never really be repeated.

    Another great read, thanks all your work Maz.

    Neat!

    Great work! It's not often you hear about these guys.

    Wait... Do brownings hands fire off if you pull his trigger in robot mode? That would be Awkwarrrrrd. Or is it just the yellow trigger switch on the side of the barrel there?

    Good article, I always enjoy these.

    If I can pick the brains of people who might know better than I, how much does the first pictured Browning go for in that packaging, I have that version of the toy MIB but with yellow weapons not chrome.

    Thank you. Presumably worth very little? It's a great quality KO.

    Yet another great article from Maz! :) 

    I'm thinking the value of a mib piece is around the $70-90 range. It's the one I had, and I recall someone trying to do a price check here some time back.

    I want to say I have the Kingdam KO. Very nice quality. Love it like an original (which I don't have). If you end up finding one at a decent price, even loose, it's a good buy.

    i actually think brownie looks better then the megatron gun design.

    and i like the .44 too.

    both designs are vastly superior to the megatron one.

    but megatron is still cool :lol

    Honestly, the mib price is probably dated. I'm a bit unsure as to what one would cost nowadays. I know I paid $25 for mine when I bought it in 2002 :lol 

    The major differences that I know of are the box has different text and the accessories are not chromed.

    Hope you don't mind if I share my gunrobo collection. Minus variants, I believe these are all the realistic guns ever made.
