MC-07 M1910 Gun Robo Browning

THE REASON WHY TOY GUN LAWS WERE CHANGED

I have to think that if I were to only put these pictures up and not write anything, then that would be more than enough.  These two "different" pieces are just plain awesome. (see how I didn't even need to put an exclamation mark at the end of that last sentence....I even said it in a level, calm voice because these pics don't need anything extra).  Nevertheless, I will still add some material so enjoy the content.








The FN Browning M1900 is a single action, semi automatic pistol designed ca. 1986 by John Browning for Fabrique Nationale de Herstal (FN) and produced in Belgium at the turn of the century.

SAME BOX, SAME GUNS........DIFFERENT COLORS

This toy come in two versions; the top box containing a darker chrome color with red highlighted pieces, while the bottom box holds a more shiny gold tint to it with blue highlights.

There are no difference in the boxes.






Browning is a Decepticon from the Super-God Masterforce portion of the G1 line.





Browning is one of the very few Transformers meant to be as close to 1:1 scale representation of their screen character.


The Browning also comes with two chrome handguns that along with being able to be held in both hands, can also be mounted onto his shoulders.


The yellow sight above the muzzle is also used to activate the firing mechanism in robot mode, since the muzzle forms his right arm and can launch his right fist.


There are also four fists; two left fists and two right ones.  The right handed ones are able to be be fired out as projectiles.

UNUSED STICKER SHEET

Single sheet folded instructions.







In his realistic pistol mode, he can fire bullets from his muzzle thanks to a spring-loaded assembly attached to his trigger.

Browning's anime character model is the bronze and blue color scheme of his Micro Change forerunner.

This fairly weak firing mechanism can also be triggered by pressing the small yellow sight above the muzzle.

A VIEW TO A KILL










The Browning came with either red or blue robot parts, in addition to a gold chromed contest piece. The blue version was released as the Japanese exclusive Browning.


These may look like a big piece, but if you were to compare them next to G1 Megs you would notice a considerable size and weight difference.......doesn't make them any less impressive.


We've long since past the time where collector figures of this quality are being made.  Laws, safety regulations, even society have almost made them a stigma to talk about, let alone display.....though it could easily be argued that figures such as these are less taboo, and more beautiful pieces of art to be enjoyed by collectors alike.

Cheers,
