Online toy retailer Captured Prey is apparently jumping into the ever-popular Targetmaster arena with their own new exclusive offerings. Their Targetmasters, Mastershooter MS-01B Brown King and Mastershooter MS-01M Mega Gun, feature designs similar to G1 Megatron and come in brown and black or silver and black respectively. The description for these new accessories reads:

Captured Prey wrote:Mega Gun and Brown King are the debut release of MasterShooter Collectibles! Limited in number and made with the expert help of a fan favorite third party company (who has asked to remain anonymous), these figures will be produced using high quality steel injection molds and durable ABS plastic!

Measuring approximately 2.2 inches tall in robot mode and 3.17 inches in weapon mode, Mega Gun and Brown King will be cast in color and pre-painted, ready to make any bot in your collection shake a washer loose with fear when these imposing weapons are aimed at them! Articulated shoulders and elbows allow each figure to aim his own weapon as well, making them the perfect scouts or assassins. The figures are designed with a stepped 4mm to 5mm peg handle, allowing them to be used by original Targetmaster Transformers, and almost all modern figures, too. And, as a bonus, an adaptor is released that allows Classics Starscream or any later version of his mold to carry Mega Gun along with their own weapon under the wing!

Both Mega Gun and Brown King will be limited to 500 pieces each, or produced to meet demand if more pre-orders are received. This item is currently estimated for release early in the second quarter of 2011.


The figures are listed for pre-order for $18 USD when purchased separately or for $35 USD when purchased together.

Captured Prey are a great shop. I bought some stuff from them at Botcon IRL, and I have to say, they were a great bunch of guys. If they had something I wanted, I would happily do business with them again.

As for the Targetmasters, they look cool, but I'm just not into 3rd Party stuff.

Hmm. (That's a positive "hmm".) The figure looks really good for Captured Prey's first product. Nice touch making him mountable on the wing of a Seeker. Take the scope/cannon off and I'd say it could pass for a Classic Targetmaster as well. The only not-positive thing I have to say about it is that it's got a bit of size to it. Doesn't look too bad in the hand of a Voyager though. Squarely on the fence with this.

I think it's a play on "Browning" without using the actual name.

Personally, I would have used B.M, but maybe thats just me. :lol:

Just want to keep the record straight and note that I'm only the seller on this, so it
is not exactly my product - Any credit for design and creation belongs to the person behind Mastershooter, the only piece I have actually "created" so far on this was to designate the product numbers :lol: . I do know the designer personally however, he is a member of the fan community in the area, and I'm certainly pleased to be offering his first product!

I'm a good friend with the guy who designed these guys and started up MasterShooter. He's spent a good amount of time and money on these. I've seen the prototype in person and it is a nice little targetmaster.

Im not big on the targetmaster thing nor have i ordered from captured prey but i can vouch for the guys in charge of it. I got a chance to meet them at botcon this pat year in orlando and they helped me out, showing where to go and what to expect. Class act guys and they are true fans of the transformers, I'd feel comfortable ordering from them...

I certainly hope you'll give us a try! The site depends on word of mouth like yours and customers giving us the chance to show them there's another game in town.

MasterShooter collectibles has updated their facebook page with prototype images of their upcoming MS-01M Mega Gun, a Targetmaster style version of G1 Megatron. This figure along with it's repaint MS-01B Brown King are limited release exclusives to Captured Prey where they are available for preorder.

I really would have preferred that they used Classics Megatron, we already have lots of little G1 Megatrons, from that first target masters style Megatron to the Legends class Megatron, and I thought there was another but I can't remember. Still, I'd like a little Classics Megatron, even if it's just his weapon mode, I'd be fine with that.

Been done. Some third party a while back released an accessory scaled to clasics Starscream of Clasics Megatron's gun mode.

Actually no they didn't. Fan's Project showed prototypes for a mini Megs gun in Classics and Henkei colours a couple of years ago but they never went into production and they have said that they won't be making them for release.

Seriously considering putting in a preorder for one of these. As long as we've got the site owner's attention can I ask if you ship internationally, specifically to the UK?

Glad this was updated with new pics cuz otherwise I'd never have known about this thread.

Pre-order complete. :CON:

Nice gun mode. How cute. I may have been interested if it had more ball joints.

That's really not a bad option for those of you who wanted a miniaturized Walther P-38 to mimic Megatron's smaller alt mode. I would probably order only one myself.

You certainly can, and I certainly do. :D Shipping is available to anywhere the United States Postal Service ships. First Class Mail would be the correct option to pick for these internationally. Unless you really, really want it to deliver within a week, give or take, then you could pick a Priority option.

Despite all the negativity about it, I think this is a great idea! Even if it isn't the best molded targetmaster, and it doesn't look quite like G1 Megatron in the gun mode, its still in the spirit of the old targetmasters. I would consider getting this if it were a reasonable price... and display it with my G1 Soundwave!! :D

:CON:

Hm. Not sure if you already knew, but these have been up for pre-order for some time. Pricing is $18 for one, or $35 for both (and believe me, there's not any huge padding in there, I know what these are costing to be made, nor am I making any large amount on them). Production run is limited to 500 of each figure.
