    IF this is true, I'm glad I got Willis a few weeks ago as I HATE the toon look on the MPs, and I wouldn't be happy with a TakTom Hound right now.

    The TakTom one?


    It's not a matter of cheaper to me, as I'll pay a lot more for a design I like even if it's double the price of a design I don't like.

    Well I guess I shouldn't sweat too much for passing on this guy. With the official version coming, it will probably be a slightly more appealing design- only to immediately KOed at half that price point! :D 

    I'll either get a KO or an offloaded Willis. Patience is a virtue that always pays off. After some finagling and a little luck- I got my V2 Green TW Constuctor for $369 shipped, but only actually paid $200 out of pocket. ;) 

    He cost me virtually nothing in comparison to his release price.

    I wouldn't go off of that alone in assuming there will be no reissue. I'd have to hear news of no-reissue directly from FT, the horse's mouth.

    I wasn't happy with Willis so news of a TT is somewhat welcome, although I am losing faith in the official line because of the hyper toon look.

    I lost faith in takara at mp32 and mp33 basically sealed it. Ill still buy the mpms but hate the toon accuracy. When i saw that, i got excited becuase there will be cheap willis' on ebay. Same way i got sunsurge for $65.

    It wasn't the 4th production run. It was the 3rd at most. People seem to think the first couple of restocks were separate runs when they were just restocks. Still, all of these people were losing their minds paying $400 on eBay or filling the thread with reissue petitions. And it all evaporated when they eventually did the reissue.

    I'd still like Hound reissued so I can pick up a second copy but I can still see them not doing it.

    Well, if this is true, it will be a test of how good Willis is. I've always felt he's one of the few 3P figures that were done so well that I wouldn't buy a TT version if they ever came out with one. Potentially time to find out.

    Transformation decisions and loose ankles are a couple areas of improvement. A better face would be nice too. I think Willis did some things right, but a lot wrong and still leaves the door open for a better version.
