    EDIT: Apologies, looks like I misassumed. And that's a real word.

    I'm thinking you mean MP-05 Megatron, check fantofan.jp for some of the latest pics.

    There's a few different ones. MP-5 Megatron is the main one, but I've also seen pics of everything from Browning to Brave's Gunkid on here recently.

    How cheap? I've always wanted that guy, but I've never seen him at a price that's comfortable for me.

    Heh... considering the problems we may be having with MP Megatron, who turns into a GIANT off-scale handgun, I can see why doing a re-release of Browning might be more trouble than he's worth... besides also being a japanese-only character.

    Still, this figure rocks in my opinion... his styling and proportions are much better than Megatron's. Maybe one of those upscale chinese bootlegging operations will release an affordable KO version someday. :)

    It would be interesting if someone wrote those two into the the Transformers mythos, wouldn't it?

    Well, Browning was in the Japanese cartoons; he didn't size shift either, he was supposed tobe a tiny little robot.
    Heh. May as well complete the family, with Megatron's Dad, the Microchange MC-13 Walther P-38 U.N.C.L.E.:

    You may know this already, but just in case, please be aware that the one in that auction, as well as the one pictured in this thread, are actually not the real Browning but the pre-TF version. They're certainly not any less cool (I have the same one Wheeljaxx has), but Transformer Browning has blue as his secondary color, not red.

    Here he is:

    There's a link to a boxed pic there as well.

    I actually just finished watching the episode where Lady Mega just gave him to Cancer. So far, I like his character, I'd love for someone to re-issue him as well so he doesn't end up on my "to-get-list" although I oculd use the air miles he'll get me:D

    There was a time I really wondered why of the three, Megatron was taken from the UNCLE replica, and not Browning. Browning just seems far better proportioned and more G1 "Transformery"; that is, he seemed to fit in better with the rest of the Decepticons when you look at the design aesthetics of the rest of the early Decepticon army.

    I wouldn't mind a reissue or some such of him.

    I like the .44 Magnum, who I've dubbed "Treadshot" for his passing resemblance to the Action Master of the same name.
    Would love to get that one or a reissue Browning. I've got a version of the Browning toy and I can tell you now, as much as he might fit in with the rest, he is neither evil looking nor big enough to lead the Decepticons! The UNCLE version is by far the better Megatron - most evil of the three, and suitably imposing among the rest. Browning would just sorta fade into the crowd were he there in Megatron's place. A leader needs to draw attention and "look" the part, something that ol' Browning can't do as well as the UNCLE.

    Yeah I would love to see a KO version of Browning. Then at least I could afford one.
