    I asked MMC about a reissue about a month ago on a Twitter. I got no answer, but this suddenly happens?

    I feel confident taking full credit for making this happen.

    You’re welcome.

    Yep, I love this guy. Perfect aesthetic for my CHUG collection. Shoulder transformation is my only gripe, but he's great.

    yeah i figured, but i have some figures that aren't fully cartoon accurate like Quakewave and Brawny so maybe he might be fine, i'd like to see him next to other MP Decepticons to get an idea

    Funny that they are making such a big deal about the rerelease. Picked mine up just a month or two ago on clearance.

    They probably could have just restocked stores and no one would have noticed the difference.

    I am sure they will, but perhaps a month after or so. They'll call it "warehouse find". Last time I remember there was a huge scramble by people to get their hands on those harpoons. If PSX were to list the item now, all those other stores won't be getting any preorders in.

    Guys, I think demand hits Carnifex and its upgrade kit hard as MMC is NOT reissuing them, according to action robot.

    MMC must be blind. I think it took a really long time before this thing sold out the last time around, and within the first 4 months a retailer, A3U had to do a discount on it. Competition is also tougher this time around because of FatHobby. Now that thing sold out in weeks, and is now being reissued.

    Come on MMC, just release Hellex or Tesaurus already.

    Eh. You know this one. Try to whip up the hype a bit to knock out the extra few sales. That said, it'd be a hoot if some company just rolled it out and said: "Here's some shit we found in a warehouse or something. Buy it or not. Whatever." Then smoked a pound of weed and passed out.

    Can't agree more. It is a weird choice to re-release, there are many others

    Well, that’s crushing news. I was really excited that there was a reissue coming.

    I think its just bad marketing. They reissue an older figure at the same old price despite having a MAJOR competitor doing a G1 version of overlord. Meanwhile, IDW itself is a smaller niche. Now, if you remolded carnifex to look more G1 inspired, i think that would have sold wayy better. Or just lower the damn price? MMC stuff is often regarded as overpriced, considering what you are getting. The fact that the reissue price is the same, means they very likely overestimated the demand.

    My absolute favorite figure I own are have ever owned, but I'm am not only a really big fan of idw but of overlord as a character, but with that said i can see how some would think he is overpriced for most because it's such a niche character and I can see the hesitation for some. But I would buy him again in a heart beat he is a great figure imho.
