I used to look at the Krang expansion in my FLGS, not knowing if I wanted it or not. But now I have decided that I really need it. And now it is OOP.
And because I can´t get it anymore I have become really obsessed over it.

I found a few copies on amazon, somewhat overpriced ($79 for a single character?). I was seriously thinking about ordering it though. But it turned out that it wasn´t available for shipping to Sweden.

And therefor I ask the BGG community.
Is there anyone out there who knows where I can find a copy of it?
Perhaps someone is willing to sell their copy to me? Or in any other way help me acquire a copy of it.

Any help in this matter is very much appreciated and would allow me to sleep at night again.

Ouch, $75 for a character expansion. Just buy the TMNT version of Krang and find somewhere online to print off his cards until reprint...

Though it's been slow to come back, we have no reason to think that WizKids will discontinue Krang or any other expansion for MK.

I assume that they will come with a reprint of the old expansions and core game when the new expansion is released. For Germany, where isn't Krang available at all until now, some sources from Asmodee (new partner of Wizkidz for the German market) confirmed a whole reprint a whole reprint package with core game and all expansions.
So just wait a bit and everything will be fine we in Germany will get in fact two new expansions at the same time

I only started playing Mage Knight this year. I really liked it so I went to my local gaming shop to buy Lost Legion. Unfortunately, they did not have Lost Legion in stock, but they did have Krang. I bought the Krang expansion and ordered the Lost Legion one too.

I recommend Krang, but not at $75!!! It is just one character, so don't pay a ridiculous amount for it. Lost Legion is a much better expansion if you don't have it as you get a new Mage Knight (Wolfhawk), a new enemy (Volkare) and more map tiles and enemy tokens. I would save your kronor until you can buy Krang at a reasonable price.

Funny you ask...

I have been looking for it also and have it on back order. I also asked Wizkids on their Facebook page whether it would be reprinted. I'm sure they would rather I share their replies than have lots of people ask the same question (see below).

Short answer - they will be reprinting, they just can't say when. And there's a whole new expansions coming very soon which will offer much better value anyway.

So be patient and don't let anyone rip you off.

Hello - I recently bought the Mage Knight board game and Lost Legion expansion. Great game! However I would also like the Krang expansion and am having trouble finding it in the UK. Are there any plans for a reprint? Thanks.

Hi David,

Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us. Although we do not have a reprint coming right now, that does not mean we won't have one in the future. If you haven't already heard, we will be releasing a new expansion this summer, Mage Knight: Shades of Tezla. Keep a look out as we announce more information.

Thanks for your support.

Best,
-The WK Team

OK thanks. It's a shame there's no plan to preprint at present but you're right there is the new expansion to look forward to! Cheers.

We will be reprinting, just not sure when.

I bet lots of FLGS that carried this still have one on the shelf. It wasn't released that long ago.

That is a great relief. I guess I just have to wait then.
As have been pointed out there is a new expansion on it's way (and I still haven't tried Lost Legion) so I will probably have something to occupy my mind while I wait. I was just afraid that it was gone forever and that I would have to search every corner of the world to find a copy.

I haven't got the LL expansion yet, however I was going to pick them both up when I realized that Krang was gone. So I started to search for it.
LL is still available for me, but perhaps I should get it as soon as possible, unless I want the same experience again.
$75 is indeed ridiculous for a single character expansion. But for a moment I panicked and the obsessive completionist in me took over. Now that I know it will be reprinted, I'm glad that I couldn't order it.

If you played the base game several times, and if you like solo or cooperative play, then you really should get Lost Legion.

Lol!! Wow, that brings back memories. The other option for a figure is to grab one of the Bonebreaker Shaman that was released in the Mage Knight ressurection Heroclix set. It should be pretty cheap and its to scale with all the other MKBG figs (since they just re-used the board game sculpts in that set).

Thanks for the Board Game Bliss link. This will be my third try getting the Krang expansion. The first two resulted in emails from the company saying that they didn't actually have it, but would send it once they got it. So, I canceled those orders.

This time the page actually changed to saying "Sold Out" after I ordered the one copy, so it is looking good.

I'm willing if they have it to ship it at cost if they have it, but what's your upper limit so I don't pick it up and it's too much

Search of amazon today showed one at $59. Still too dang much but a slight improvement at least.

If it's more than $30 (without shipping) I think I'll just wait for the reprint.
Less than that and it's probably worth not having to wait.

Edit: I no longer need it

It now seems as if I might get a copy after all.
So if you haven't already bought any, there is no longer any need for it.
But thank you very much for the offer.
If you have bought one though, please send me a PM so that I know how much I owe you.

This thread made me aware that Krang was out of print, so I went and bought my FLGS's copy today ($20 American). Excited to try playing with him tonight!
