| Way back in August 2012, Dan Norton revealed that WB had ceased production on Thundercats and that it would take "years to get it back on tv if we started today." Most fans moved on since then, with a few still holding out hope that someone, somewhere would get this show to continue. Well that can officially be put to rest.|
The Save Thundercats Facebook Group has posted the following bit directly from Dan Norton:
"Guys, I love you. All of you for so much effort that has been spent trying to get TCats back on the air. I'm sorry though, it won't be coming back. Chima sealed the deal. It's the end of the road guys. Thank each and every one of you for all of your efforts and support. Maybe, someday, someone can try again."
So looks like it's back to the drawing board in the hopes that Warner Bros can someday resurrect this franchise in a successful way. It's a little twist of the knife to our hearts to have to read this again. But it was fun while it lasted and we'll all be right here for the next chapter of the franchise and we still have love from companies like Mezco and Icon Heroes.

Part one of the Thundercats.ws site updates have been completed. The forums have been slightly reorganized. Some of the dead forums have been removed and merged together. This will help streamline the site a bit, and allow you, the fans, to better focus on the areas you've already been visiting. |
The next round of updates will likely hit after New York Toy Fair 2013. So stay tuned and enjoy!

It's been a while since we've updated the site. With the death of the Thundercats 2011 series and toy line, coupled with trickling news and the holidays, we've slipped on the news a bit. Thankfully, that isn't going to last much longer. Over the coming days and weeks you may notice some changes in both the look and structure of the site. |
We'll be doing a bit of Winter clean-up and streamlining. We apologize for the lack of updates. With great companies like Mezco (they're bringing us a Mega Scale Cheetara figure) and Icon Heroes (those series 3 Thundercats Minimates look great) still pumping out great stuff, there's sure to be some killer stuff for us in 2013. So fret not, and we look forward to gettign back to the line we all love...Thundercats!

| Pop Culture Shock has announced that their line of Thundercats Statues is no more. The Tygra and Cheetara statues will not be produced. Sideshow sent out letters to those who pre-ordered Tygra and then PCS responded, via Statue Forum, and confirmed that the line is indeed no more. Here are some quotes from Pop Culture Shock.|
"Well we did our part. We made an amazing Tygra statue. IMO the single best ThunderCats collectible ever.So there you have it folks.You can see the Tygra Here and the Cheetara Here.
But only a few ordered it. Less than 50% of the number we need to go into production.
Im truly sorry as i had high hopes for the ThunderCats line, but it seems that most fans only wanted Lion-O and Mumm-Ra."
When asked if the line is officially over...
"We only cancel when the pre-orders are very very low. So low that we would lose money going into production."
"The numbers were very very low. About as low as Lord Raptor which I DID go into production on (against my better judgment) and now have a warehouse full of them.
I cant afford another Lord Raptor situation.
You seem pretty reasonable and understanding. Im at a loss to see how others see this as my fault...
They need to blame the TCats fans for not ordering a gorgeous statue that Khurram Alavi spent months sculpting and Mike Najera did a masterful paint job on."
"If our deal wasnt up in 6 months Id regroup and try to sell them direct through me. I only have to sell half as many if Im selling directly.
However, the deal is up soon and I cant afford to write another giant check on the *hopes* that it works out. Just far too risky.
I think you are right in that the market spoke and most TCats fans really only want Lion-O and Mumm-Ra. To most that is as complete a line as they need."
"200 is our minimum to go into production but that doesnt fluctuate depending on the piece.
Tygra didnt come close to 200"
