    Gotta say that I like the idea of Jazz carrying a backup piece.

    Wandered back onto this thread to cheer me up from blah Thursdays. Your Jazz/Megs/Elita-1/Scarf/Backup Piece photos didn't disappoint.

    People are insane... this thing will get reissued for sure unless official is announced.

    I don’t know. Haven’t seen Maketoys reissue anything else so what makes you think Downbeat will come back? I’ve learned to buy figures I like and resell later if I change my mind to avoid scalpers. Stupid Badcube Brawn and Huff...

    How many figures do they have though and only Giant got reissued? Doesn’t seem like a good record of re-releasing figures to me but that’s just my opinion. Hoping other people can get a Downbeat because he’s my favorite MP figure if I had to choose one to save from a fire.

    Pretty sure the Visualizers set was reissued. Everyone ran out of the initial release & then another batch ended up in stores.

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure MT has reissued stuff...

    --Powerglide/Seaspray minibots
    --Devy (yellow and green)
    --Guardia
    --Chromedome Headmaster

    I'm assuming there's quite an investment to produce a new mold. Can't see why MT wouldn't want to make more money off of it if it feels it can sell. Jazz is a very popular character and right now, there's no official MP. Yeah, I'd say there's a chance he gets reissued at some point.

    In any case, yeah, I'm not about to throw silly money at a scalper.

    Will they still take my money if they are filled with drool? After all its your fault, for getting my reissue hopes up.

    People freak out over prices, but you must remember some people don't give a f&^%. They have money to burn and pay for convenience. You don't need everyone to pay a high price. You only need one.
