    Will Gygor be re-released?

    Hi guys.

    This figure is like getting to nail Paris Hilton. It feels like I was the only one who missed out!

    The sell out was reasonably quick and I was wondering if there was enough interest for Matty to do a re-release. So before I head over to evilbay is there anyone else here who missed out who would want one? And for those that did buy one are they worth it?

    Cheers.

    Yes you do, you've just used a double negative!

    I think he should be. I gotta be honest in that at first I thought Gygor was lame but I still got him. Now I can't imagine not having him. He is a cool figure and with his colors he fits the old school look of MOTU that I like. If you don't have him get him.

    I'm guessing Gygor won't be coming back. Mattel are going to reduce the amount of re-issues they do in 2012 forward, because they say only the main characters tend to do well.

    Highly doubt it. As said, the re-releases are going to be fewer and fewer and Gygor certainly isn't an A-list character...not even close.

    Then...you also have the $30 price tag attached to it which makes it an even tougher sell.

    I think he will comeback to get rid of the left over stock, but not get a new run.

    I dont have Gygor(or Paris Hilton).

    I think its pretty, eh, 'cruel' of Matty not to continue with the reissues. Theres a couple of figures i missed that i would like a second shot at...

    Didn't Tytus have a re-release? If he did, then I'd think they'd do something about Gygor...

    The safe answer is "Yes" He will eventually be re-released. The question is when. It's a guessing game with Matty. They don't do things by order.

    I'm still waiting for Teela to get re-released and I need another Man-At-Arms.

    Yea, but I'm willing to bet that Tytus is just one of the "Re-Releases" that didn't fare as well as thought which made Mattel second guess and shorten these re-leases.

    The re-release stuck around to the VERY end and I'm sure that they still have quite a few hanging around for the ol' customer service stock.

    Tytus also sold out MUCH quicker then Gygor on the first go around *under 20 min. I believe* so I'm sure that had a lot to do with the re-release as well.

    The sell out took about 8 hours.
