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.

Product description from Captured Prey:

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 will be cast in color and pre-painted, ready to make any bot in your collection shake a washer loose with fear when this imposing weapon is aimed at them! Articulated shoulders and elbows allow Mega Gun to aim his own weapon as well, making him the perfect scout or assassin. 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!

Mega Gun will be limited to 500 pieces, 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.

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.

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?

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

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.

Thanks! I don't know... he's about the same price as my BTS 03 set, but he's also probably better quality plastic, so I may preorder him. :D

Hmm, wasn't aware of that.

I hope there are some left for Botcon! :) I remember fiddling with the prototype in person and he was just a fun little guy. Looking forward to it. ;)

I may pick up a Browning. I don't need a mini megs. I always have room for Targetmasters. (I know, Browning was never a Targetmaster)

OK, I threw in for them.

I like target masters, and I like mini-megatrons.

About as "wack" as those knock off seekers you got there.

Brownking will be a cool addition to my Classics collection.

I'm on this train.

Honestly, I agree. I'm not a fan of the Targetroids for this reason, since three of the four make no sense to me. Likewise, I'm not big on the Prime and Soundwave headmasters (I'd be more for them if it wasn't clearly Prime and Soundwave turning into their own heads). In this case, I think Megatron is at least a sensible choice. And if this product does well, I suspect a lot of people will see their wishes for Targetmasters to go with Classics toys like Kup, Scourge, etc. fulfilled.

At first I passed on this idea, then I decided to go for it. I'll support these guys in the hopes that more targetmasters get made in the future.
