    Just wanted to let anyone else who might be interested know that the figure has been sold. I didn't think so many would inquire in such a short amount of time. Sorry I couldn't sell one to all of you. Best of luck to all of you on your hunt for Carnifex.

    Can’t believe the reissue didn’t get any interest

    I think it was because it was so long ago, now I feel MMC fan base has grown quite a lot. And with so many newcomers a reissue would actually work and be very successful.

    I agree, I hope MMC tries a set of pre-orders for Carnifex again even though they were probably discouraged by the lukewarm reception on their first reissue attempt. At this point, I think there's a clear consensus that Carnifex is one of the best figures in their Reformatted lineup, and with G1 MP demand and supply chilling out a bit, I wouldn't be surprised if more people would be interested in Carnifex now. Also, did their previous issue occur around the same time as Fans Hobby Double Evil reveal or issue, because that could have caused some deliberation in potential buyers. I don't think that would be an issue at all now though.

    I do recall LazyAza or RVDA mentioning that their big bots are loss leaders, so to speak, particularly since they hardly get remolds or recolors (Carnifex, Mors, Helex), but I still hope that they try it again later this year even if it's at a slight increase in price so that more people will be able to purchase him. He's definitely in my top 5 figures of my collection.

    I have him also and honestly while Optus Pexus probably is better, Carnifex is still my favorite not just reformatted but transformer period. So I want a reissue like You so more can see for themselves how great he is and get to enjoy Him as well. He just has such presence on a shelf it's hard to describe unless your looking at him in person.

    It's true Deathsaurus is my favorite character and will always be, But it's going to be hard to beat Carnifex. Besides Carnifex is here and I honestly don't know if Deathsaurus will ever be released. And before Someone says be patient I've waited years and there isn't even a colored test shot, while release after release gets done before him so I don't believe it's getting made but I so hope I'm wrong.

    Yeah I wonder how long they are going to sit on this and how long it's going to take before people start asking for their money back from all those pre-orders.

    It was a tfcon exclusive a few years ago. Like last year was DC's Batman (vexo prominon). Then before that was Marvel's Deadpool (stray shadow ghost). And before that was Marvel's/British comics Death head (Anubis) 20210409_162047.jpg

    Yea if this wasn't being made by my favorite company and a grail piece for me I would have canceled long ago, I've waited months/years for releases before but with the lack of communication from them and the release dates passing without a word from them, then saying it's a tooling issue months ago and still no colored prototype I truly believe it's not getting made and honestly it's the most disappointed I've ever been over a figure.

    Just wanted to give a shoutout to MMC's customer service. Got my reissues of OM Fraudo and Impetus 2 weeks ago only for Impetus to be missing his left thumb. After sending Ages 3 and Up a few emails over 9 days with form "we'll get back to you" responses, MMC got back to me in under 30 minutes are sending it free of charge and shipping ... give or take 5-6 weeks, but free is free.

    I’m sure they’ll get to him eventually. Can’t be that much longer

    I wish but it's been years and nothing, but hopefully you're right and I'm wrong.
