Brown-King is a third-party Transformer by MasterShooter Collectibles and homage to the Decepticon Browning.
The name Brown King is a play on the name of the American gunsmith John Browning.
The toy design that would become Mega-Gun and Brown-King started as a 3D printed custom by TFW2005 forum member Insane Galvatron. He posted pictures of the custom in April 2010.
Mega-Gun and Brown-King were first teased on the internet in December 2010.
The [email protected] podcast for December 30th, 2010 Omegus Prime selected pictures of Brown-King and Mega-Gun as one of the New Picture Picks. He liked that they were designed domestically through Shapeways, and called the design "decent". Vangelus said he saw prototypes of the design at BotCon.
When the glittering and rainbow gasses from the mighty Unicorn mix, they not only create life, but "rip" the very fabric of space-time itself. When Mega-Gun was made, the rift torn between realities pulled in spare parts that Unicorn had ejected from his rear hatch and gave them life. This is how Brown-King was born. Our reality is like a broken reflection of his own. Upon realizing how back-sided this universe is, he sets off to help the automated robots (they need someone to jump cliffs). Knowing they cannot both exist in the same reality, Brown-King seeks to kill Mega-Gun to save not only himself, but everyone in our reality.
