The only ppl that would be interested in it are justin chancellor fanatics. Don't get me wrong i'm a big tool fan and I love what justin does on bass but I wouldn't buy a signature chancellor whammy over it. Just like I love muse but you'll never see a 700$ deep impact on my board.
Yes, I find myself in the same boat as you on this subject. I dig some of the whammy effects and would likely use them in my music, but $500-800 for a pedal is just ridonkulous IMO.
A re-issue would be nice, but I'm sure we all know how that would end up...
1) The tracking wouldn't be the same
2) The tone wouldn't be as "...rich, full, or bassy as the original."
3) The pitch shift modes that are on the original wouldn't be on this one
4) It would have cheesy stuff on it to let people KNOW it's the Justin Chancellor sig model, so there is no pleading ignorance on buying the pedal
5) The price would be exorbitant for a mass-manufactured pedal
6) It would probably blow up on people or wear out ridiculously quick and have tons of QC issues.
If they do release one, I hope I have to eat my words up there and then I'll promptly buy one myself
