    I spoke with MMC weeks ago about their Carnifex plans… and they don’t plan to make a Masterforce repaint for Carnifex. They are open to the idea of making an upgrade kid for Carnifex if they see that there is enough demand for one. On the MMC Hub Facebook group I made a poll to see if people were really interested in such a kit and also to see if adding IDW related upgrades besides the Masterforce stuff would get more people on board.

    Since a lot of you guys commented on the Carnifex thread that they don’t use FB, I’m doing a poll here too for those that couldn’t vote on Facebook.

    The plan is to show MMC that making an upgrade kit is worth their time and money.

    I commented on the Facebook hub and im here to say the same thing. Yes i would want that. I want the power masters of course, but what i also want very badly is g.i.joe style figures of Giga and Mega in their normal clothes.

    If they offer the harpoon to everyone, will they also go back and offer all their previous PSX exclusives for sale individually?

    I know it's rotten not to want someone else to have or enjoy something you got "exclusively," but what is the point of it even being exclusive then? (Again, this is about the harpoon still)

    What other IDW stuff could they offer though?

    I'm not interested in a G1/Masterforce kit, but wouldn't be against it for others. Hope you guys get one.

    I'd prefer Mp style human figures like spike, Daniel or marissa. Or at least ones of similar size.

    Bit of a biased poll to be honest.

    I have zero interest in a Masterforce kit. That doesn't mean I'm afraid of tiny people. Nor would I scream in anger if they made one because I know plenty of people ARE interested; I'm just not one of them. So my actual answer would be "No, but I'm not opposed to one."

    Well, everything else is MP scaled, so that is what I'd be looking for, plus they would work well with the power maters. Also if they snuck in the Decepticon Headmaster JRs as humans it'd be an awesome set. At Joe Size the cost would go up a lot, and not everyone would want them in their collection. Their outfits would severely limit articulation anyway.

    Yeah im down for a masterforce kit.

    If they bundled it with IDW parts I would just sell the parts off .

    However, if the kit retails for something like upwards of $35, I would not bother purchasing on the primary market...too much hassel for unwanted items.

    Instead I would buy on the secondary market from someone who bought the kit for the IDW parts but didn't want the G1 parts. Something for them to consider...who has more inelastic demand, the IDW only collectors or the G1 only collectors.

    Thats a cool idea actually.

    I just want the harpoon. If anyone wants to sell me theirs at a fair price, hit me up.

    It should include the harpoon, the idea of store exclusives is as anti-collector here as it is when it is done with videogames. It's not a practice we should encourage.

    If by Masterforce set what is meant is a pair of little powermasters for his chest cavities, then yes, I'd be interested. I'm not up the lore enough to know whether that's IDW or not, so not really sure how to vote. If the figures are humanoid instead of robots, I'd be disinterested. I'm expecting powermaster-type mini bots.

    That's exactly what the poll is about. Two powermasters for his torso above all else is what is being considered here. MMC versions of these two guys:

    Anything else is a bonus/extra/addition to them that mmc is gauging interest in.

    Megablocks does those halo/assassin creed mini figures. If they did a mega and giga like that I would be down.

    Giga, mega, pieces to make a more cohesive base mode like ramps (although the current one is okay), AND maybe a couple idw things. I'd give away the harpoon because it would never see use by me. If it could actually hook onto overlord's eye that could be cool, but otherwise doesn't it just dangle? Verity in her exo-suit could be nice, but then I'm sure the kit's price would start to skyrocket.

    No interest in the slightest. I would have loved the harpoon, but I paid the extra shipping costs for PSX to make sure I got the harpoon already. I'd rather get an entirely new figure in the G1 vein before I tried to make adjustments to this beautifully IDW inspired version of the figure. Just my two cents. I wouldn't be upset if an upgrade kit was offered, but it wouldn't be for me.
