    Hi Hi!

    I was just wanting a bit of help from you experts about my Microman MC-14 Eggbot.

    Basically I have no idea how rare he is, or how I came to acquire him in the UK as a child.
    Does anybody else have one in their collection?

    Here are some pics:

    More pictures and information can be found here

    I also had a gold lion one, but he didnt survive childhood, though I still have the weapons.

    Is this any help? :) 

    Not sure on the rarity but there are always die hard collectors for the older/orignal lines of pre-transformer toys so it will appeal to them.

    I have the dark Egg Leo from BW. I would love to have more of them. Wish there would be a US release.

    I developed a real affinity for the Eggs a few years back and tracked down every variant I could find.

    There are actually two versions of this guy... MC-14 Metal Man was available in either the silver with black or silver with red. The other two (MC-15 Metal Leo and MC-16 Metal Hawk) were each available in either solid gold or solid chrome. There are bootlegs floating around as well.

    The others are, of course, the BW2 keychains (each with a "dark" variant) and most recently, their KissPlay counterparts. I have another set of the three that LOOK official (they have the Takara logo on the boxes)... but in the absence of any information about them, I'm assuming they're bootlegs as well.

    Hope that helps... good luck in the hunt!

    I have a sealed black and silver and a boxed red and silver. The red was the harder of the two to find.
