Need expert help in identifying this robot!

Postby prehistoryanimal » Mon Dec 31, 2012 11:48 am

Hi there,

Can anyone help me identify this transformer, please? I consider myself pretty knowledgeable, but this guy is outside my realm of expertise.

1. He transforms into a revolver. Legs are metal. No safety color or cap. Makes me think he comes from the 70s or 80s.

2. His shoulder cannon dismounts and then becomes the barrel of another gun! It's spring loaded inside, so I think it can fire bullets.

3. The second gun has a trigger piece that attaches to the barrel/shoulder cannon to become the second gun.

4. Oh and the barrel/shoulder cannon can also be mounted on top of the robot in revolver form to become a scope a la Megatron.

I've posted this on other TF forums and no one has a clue what this is...

Help me Seiberton Energon Pub, you're my only hope!

This is what I've found. Not 100% it's the exactly the same

" it is Not from the Transformers line, but was made by Diaclone Takara Toys in Japan, same line Megatron was used from. Megatron,Browning, and Magnum all are from Diaclone, made in Japan. Thanks"

New pics added as I find time.

Nope, way off. Even I'm stomped as to what it is. Does it have copyright markings of any kind?

It looks that that guy in gun mode, but the bot mode is completely different.

Thanks though!

No, no manufacturer's stamp on it at all :( No copyright, no date. Feels old though, haha.

Weird... If it has no copyright stamp, chances are it's a Knock-Off of a different toy. Tell you what, why don't you ask CollectionDX? They have a wider understanding of toys and collectable items, Im pretty sure, at least someone there knows what it is.

Not Takara Tomy. More or less those Taiwan/China not TFs TFs. TFs or transforming 'bots are really HOT in China.
What I did IS uncalled for. Next time, instead of thinking 70 x 7 first I immediately responded to an insulting post with another insult. I should not have stooped to that level. My apologies for not upholding/following the site rules.

I do this on my own volition and no threats of sanctions have been meted/threatened yet. If there is, I accept it (sanctions) whatever the mods see fit to dish out.
