MasterShooter Collectibles

BrOOMstick is a fictional character created by MasterShooter Collectibles as a third-party Transformer homage to Fracas, the Targetmaster partner to the Decepticon Scourge.

The name BrOOMstick is a play on the nickname the character Ash gave his Remington shotgun in the film Army of Darkness.

Development

MasterShooter Collectibles released concept images of their first four Shooter Masters in September 2011.[1] BrOOMstick was known as "Minute Bot".

In October 2011 prototype pictures of the first four Shooter Masters were posted to their Facebook page.[2]

In January 2012 the first four Shooter Masters went up for pre order at Big Bad Toy Store.[3]

The four original Shooter Masters were originally scheduled for release in the 4th quarter of 2012.

In March 2013 MasterShooter Collectibles put in-package pictures of their first four Shooter Masters on their Facebook page.[4]

BrOOMstick shipped in April 2013.

Fictional biography

BrOOMstick vowed to retrieve the ruby skid plates that were scavenged by the resident of the building that fell on his last partner. On his journey, he was possessed by an evil spirit from an old book. Victory was won, even though it cost him his hand. He eventually built a prosthetic, but still likes to wield the chainsaw that he had used in the interim. He has now teamed up with the Sweepers who serve the Deceptive Constructs. The new partnership seems to have distracted him from his vow, for now.
