    Given the lack of any sort of reissue in the past decade, they may be permanently lost.

    If it's lost this is another toy I wish the KO makers would jump on.

    I would imagine it's lost if it hasn't been reissued by now. That sucker would fly off the shelves.

    Maybe, given those molds predate Transformers. Can't say how much Takara/Tomy thinks it could sell a reissue Micro-change toy, or a not-too-high-profile character from Masterforce though (think the only reissued Masterforce character there's ever been was God Ginrai - AKA another Convoy clone)

    Yeah, why would it fly off the shelves? Not to mention it being another toy that will be a pain in the ass to import into the US or Australia.

    Because even after God knows how many Megatron reissues, they are still making them and they are still selling well. Gunbots hold a special fascination for a lot of collectors; I know a lot of people (including me) who would love to be able to get a Browning or a Magnum, but can't afford the several hundred they go for (even non-mint).
    Not that it would be relased for those markets anyway. I doubt that would be a factor, otherwise there wouldn't have been am MP-5 or and Encore g1 Megatron.

    Id buy it. Always wanted that figure. Always thought it looked cooler than Megatron.

    Object-formers, for a lack of better internet jargon, FTW. I'm glad Real Gear is continuing the tradition, and after Bandai's recent Gold Lightan releases we need some guns from Takara.
