    Well, it was obviously made as a companion piece to the Rocket Gun, as similar design elements are present on both. The small rocket on the top, and the ringed red plastic barrel stand out.

    Hey, this would work too...



    Thanks John!

    A definite improvement!

    Isn't that the new sign for the Blackhorse? I hear it's under new management.

    I watched that one from afar, I knew right after take off that rocket was leaving my galaxy.

    Fin, you know how to pick 'em...that's a neat design. I've seen the pressing for the body before, but not with the flared barrel. Congrats!!

    Yes, we'll all be walking our robot dogs someday.

    Toyman, nice piece! You can't beat MIB. This one, or a copy, shows up on eBay about once per year, but not in this condition, and it is often missing the grenade/missile. It is too bad it was not made in the color variation shown in the box artwork, most I've seen were yellow/red, that bronze/red version would be really nice.

    Yeah, and I paid $100 for mine...*sigh*, I guess I should'a waited.

    So, Ninoi, are all these guns we've seen from your personal collection?

    And all those who go to Botstock XII this year, will get to attend the auction live...now there's incentive for ya!

    That's good to know...so, you can block the muzzle with your hand and incur first degree burns, but it will not damage the gun.

    Alessandro, well, we really can't say that for certain; so far we have only been presented with three examples that happen to be copies, there may indeed be other completely original Russian designs we just have not found yet.

    Ervino...it's interesting that although they should be from the same set, the sculpts are different; note how the oxygen line mates up with the helmet in the figure on the left, as opposed to the one on the right. The line expands to twice the width, and the face mask is more wedge-shaped than oval.

    Ah, so this is very similar to the Lone Star Cosmic Jet Gun.





    I still like this design the best.

    THX...Hi, it's Tinplate6 here, and I have a non-toy related question. There is an artist who's work I admire, but I don't know her name. She is the one who designed your avatar. By any chance do you know who that is? Thanks.

    Hey,

    Just a quick note to let you know that there is a complete Elastolin set on Ebay for $399 http://cgi.ebay.com/Elastolin-Space-Figures-Complete-4-figure-set-/180637791131?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a0ed9f39b

    I just thought you might like to know.

    Steve,

    Ok, I'm insane over that glass bot. Is there a possibility you could create another one, and if so, how much would you want for one? Thanks.

    Fin,

    I've decided to add you as a friend since you have replied to all my posts with civility and candor. That, plus you haven't fired a broadside across my bow.
