    Well, from a business point of view, it makes perfect sense. Hopefully enough demand is there to push the re-release to happen.

    It's weird that the Carnifex reissue does not have that minimum requirement. MMC claims that big bots are unprofitable and yet they are reissuing ... a big bot. You go to the Carnifex thread and it's not as if people are constantly asking for a reissue.

    I think everyone who wanted Carnifex got him whereas going by this thread, a lot of people missed the Tyrantron train.

    That's exactly my point i.e. Carnifex should have been the one with a minimum run specified, but no, it's the other way around.

    Me literally two months ago: Oh well, he wasn't one of MMC's greatest. Too lazy to sell, I'll just donate him.
    Me two minutes ago: *sees Jaguar & upgrade vittles*
    :sly: ...:banghead: 


    Excuse me, I need to check out my local Goodwill.:confused2

    Oh, and the PS Hellion Stealth reissue was cancelled, but I don't think anyone cared.*

    *Apologies if you were someone who cared about that.

    Thank you.

    I really hope they get enough preorders for it to go on with production. I was late getting into MTMTE and Lost Light, and this Megatron was long gone and too expensive for me by the time I found out about it.

    Ive already got Reformed Mass Murderer but I would have been tempted to double-dip IF the "upgrade" they were offering was a normal-sized/shaped fusion-canon.

    I can live without the fillers and yet another head.

    there is a good shapeways cannon that with some black spraypaint looks AMAZING.

    And I am considering getting a 2nd one of this set down the line possibly so I can keep one as Lost Light Megs and one as Cybertron Gladiator Megs

    In case there's confusion, the new parts aren't part of the Tyrantron re-release. They come with R-40 Jaguar.

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

    So preorder Tyrantron if you really want it to make it happen.

    It's not as if he's hard to find. Plenty of used ones sold on eBay over the last few months.

    I actually picked up Carnifex from TFSource in May. I see him all of the time on eBay. Tyrantron was pretty hard for awhile. I'm actually kicking myself, because I just bought one from eBay. If I had just waited, I could have paid less for him.

    I guess the Fanshobby one stole some thunder from Carnifex.
