Default Munchkin RPG

I certainly came late to the Munchkin game, and have only recently heard of the RPG released a few years back, which now looks long OOP.

Are there any plans to reprint the books?
Did anyone here enjoy these games?

Any info will be helpful!

The books relied on the now-withdrawn d20 trademark license. They would require a great deal of revision (to very old files) to remove those trademarks, and IMO they aren't worth that much effort. We don't expect to be reprinting them or releasing electronic editions.

Would it take a lot of effort to just release them as is as pdf files? I'm not being sarcastic, I actually don't know what would go into it

Judging from Andrew's answer, releasing them as-is is not an option. They were initially released under a set of licensing conditions which is no longer in effect, so regardless of how much effort it might be, they can not legally put out that material.

Precisely so.
