    earlier this year I got a great (relatively) deal on magnum robo. then a ko browning came up, and while I paid more than he's technically worth, I got him for about 1/3 of what a real browning costs. after all this, I decided why not, and got a reissue megs to go with my goodbye set. so, here's the family (albeit in individual pics, since goodbye's in florida and I'm in Mass.).

    While technically you're right, he certainly isn't a realistic gun, which seems to be what this collection is about. I wouldn't display him with the rest of those guys.

    Anyways, congrats! That's a mighty impressive looking group there, especially considering the rarity of some of them. Which one is the KO? I can't remember which one's Magnum and which one's Browning. How is the KO's quality? All of them look pretty authentic. If you hadn't said so, I would never have guessed one was a KO. Neast stuff, and thanks for the awesome pics!

    Megaplex's colors are the same as Goodbye Megatron's, so it's not much of a different figure. However, if you wanted to include color variants, there's a black Megs with brown handle

    What about Quickswitch & the recolor. One of the modes is a gun. Amarda Lazerbeak also alone with all the Targetmasters

    Me too. His MP-05 has the right parts and will stand up. Mine has/does neither of those things.

    Yeah, he wants to fall forward. His ankles are too loose and he feels front heavy. On top of that, I tried to transform him just now. The mixed up piece wont collapse into the body, thus he can't be transformed. Nor will his shoulder panels line up with his forearm panels. So he's got this uneven back part of the gun, with a front part of the gun that won't collapse down. This is the biggest mess of a TF I've ever seen. Especially for the price. If it were not for the other people on the board having received good ones, I'd say it was crap engineering.

    ha, you guys are bustin' my balls. I was just considering it the three "gun robos" from microchange, plus mp5.

    chaosbringer_00, the second picture is the ko browning, I think called kingdam browning. the difference being that this one only came with one gun instead of two, and it's yellow plastic instead of chrome, and the interior of the legs is red instead of the blue they're supposed to be.

    insanegalvatron--I had the same floppy/won't stand up problem you're having. he needs some screws tightened. here's what you need to do: extend the parts that I've circled. there's a screw in there on each side, and when you tighten it, it helps him stand much easier. I've noticed that anytime there's a "joint" issue with this guy, it's either because some screws aren't tight enough, or they're too loose. hope this helps. I was really disappointed with him until I figured this out.
