    I know it's a Megatron gun. I just don't know by whom. Which model is this and who made it? Does anyone know? Greatly appreciated if you do!

    Looks like a cheap knockoff Megatron gun that would come with a seeker or Soundwave. Do you have something you could place by it for scale?

    I've seen that before but can't remember which one it goes with. It isn't off a KO. I remember the stock comes off so you can put it into the hand hole.

    Found this in the DX9 Toys X-13 Mightron thread. I don't know how to link but I took a screenshot. The bottom one looks similar Screenshot_20200316-014813_Google.jpg

    I don't, unfortunately. Saw it in a seller's lot. He also doesn't seem to know the original source for the gun either.

    No. It's a lot larger. It's intended for 5mm post fists so standard Legends/Deluxes/Voyager/Leaders etc. can use it.

    I haven't checked TFWIKI thoroughly for every model of Megatron's guns. My current recollection is that all of the guns have the standard Walther P-38 look. I'll check them over again.

    It's still not the same if you compare the two.

    Agh. Does anyone know? Will update this entry after another look at TFWiki.

    I've seen it before too because I have it for one of my figures. That long handle is a give away because it was designed to fit in the hand and the stock was angled so it wouldn't hit the lower arm. I thought it looked weird when I got one but I can't recall which one it was for. I only collect MP so unless I'm way off it's for a MP of some kind.

    It looks *similar* in design to the gun that came with Revoltech Starscream. Maybe an upsized, slightly modded version for a KO?

    That might be where I saw it. I have that figure but he's still in the box.

    Looks similar... I wonder if it is an upscaled, slightly modified version of this. I'm still looking.

    I suppose you have no intention of opening it up hehehe.

    Oh no problem opening it. I'm just at work right now but I can check it when I get home and take a better picture for you if that's it. It might be the same one that came with Prime or Megatron as I have those as well in boxes on the same shelf. I'd display them but I never got around to it. I'll check for you. Just set a reminder on my phone :p

    I'm grateful for the considered effort, but there won't be any need because -

    Outsider4Life has provided the solution! Wow! Thank you so much! This is a rare piece indeed! I remember this set but I did not know it came with a Megatron gun until today! Thank you! This case is closed! TFW2005 is the best!

    That and the Shockwave gun are the only reason I bought that kit.

    That's half the kit. It's two guns, a head and a replacement for his fist. Good stuff. I have one on my CHUG shelf.

    I know. I tried using the rest of the kit to turn a GDO Wheelie into a Shockblast but it didnt turn out well.
