    Oof. I was going to copy the link to The Chosen Prime, where I bought him at regular price just 2 weeks ago. But yeah, looks like now he’s out of stock. I didn’t realize stock was running low. I hope he gets re-released for you.

    Surprised we haven't seen or heard anything (at least, not to my knowledge) about a mould reuse for this one.

    When it was rumoured that MMC would release a Unicron trilogy based character, I was expecting it to be an Armada Megatron from this one (not that Nitro Convoy wasn't nice).

    I was coming here just for this. I was messing with mine just now and realized he has had nothing even hinted at for a reuse/remold. I'm curious if one is planned. It's not like there isn't other decos that could be used from the various incarnations.

    Has there been any official forearm fillers? I've not kept up on any info about it.

    This is what I want to use as my definitive megatron but he’s out of stock everywhere. I really hope he gets restocked soon.

    They do rereleases, so it might help to be patient. Spartan was similarly sold out everywhere for a while and they did another run last year.

    Same here. I dragged my feet on ordering and now I'm SOL. Really hoping for a restock.

    If you have deep pockets, he’s still around in Europe.

    But, I am positive he’ll get reissued. As far as I’ve seen he’s a very well recieved figure, which he deserves because he’s fantastic.

    I dragged my feet on this guy as well and missed him, but like others said, it seems very likely that it'll be reissued at some point. It was a good figure of a popular character... seems like if things like Impactor and the DJD guys get reissued, this one has a good chance as well.

    Just set an eBay search to notify you of whatever you’re looking for, in this case MMCs tyrantron. Someone will sell one sooner or later. But it won’t be me, I love my tyrantron :)

    Hope this gets restocked soon as well for original asking/retail price. $120 is my limit.

    I don't really use ebay. I'm hoping an online store gets him in stock

    That’s too bad. I would have liked to get a second one to display in miner mode. Or as the perfect gift to another collector. Thanks for contacting them.

    But, if anyone has misplaced/broken parts of their Tyrantron, it seems MMC can still fix it. They replaced my lost miner head not long ago.

    Edit: Still hoping for a convention exclusive repaint :)

    Technically they said:
    We won't say never but this character is very unlikely to be reissued

    @LazyAza is there no chance they'll reissue tyrantron?
