I would buy them all. About six months ago my then 2 year old son fell in love with Thundercats. We have the entire series on DVD and I bought him all the thundercats on ebay. I'd love a reissue thundertank most, that things is insanely expensive. You can be he's getting the new one.

I never had enough Thundercats as a kid, I know I had a Lion-O and a roleplay sword. I would love to get my hands on a few pieces I missed. A Cats Lair and a Thundertank for sure. I would dig a Mumm-Ra as well.

I only had, and still have, Lion-O, Mumm-ra, and young Tygra with Wiley-Kit. In terms of figures, at this point I think I'd go with the new classics line, but I would love to get the Cat's Lair and Thundertank.

I'm not a big fan of reissues myself, hurts the value of the vintage pieces.

I have everything I want from the line, so if they ever did relaunch a classics themed series, I'd only pick up a few pieces to have MOC for display purposes.

I'd rather see the classic look with updated articulation and sculpts. If they did things like have it so Panthro's spikes could come out and a translucent Tigra it would be even better.

I had a few from back in the day. I don't think I'd pick them up now though. Only reason I was ever into picking up vintage Joes was that they were at least ahead of their time on articulation. I can't do figures with that little articulation now.

Sorry, but no. The upcoming Classic 8 inch superarticulated figures are what I'm hungry for.

Well, if you're in it for resale value, then sure I can see why you wouldn't like it.

Having said that, TF reissues haven't hurt original values nearly as much as everyone feared back in 2001/2. Check out prices for a minty-mint vintage Bluestreak.

Still, I for one DON'T CARE about value - my original Thundercats will always be the original, and I don't plan on selling them. Having reissues of certain characters (I wouldn't want the whole line) would go down well with me.

I've got all the old figures - I don't know how interested I would be in re-issues.
Mostly I still need most of the accesories - so it might be a better way to get replacements, rather than buying solo accesories on ebay.

Again I dunno new sculpts with updated articulation and fewer gimmicks are appealing. Although I know a gimmick of some sort is inevitable.

I have a feeling the nostalgia factor of the originals would wear off quickly because of the new Classics figures. Maybe a limited run or an exclusive would be more appealing to the manufacturer.

I would definitely be interested in a reissue Panthro. Not exactly sure what happened to mine from when I was a kid. It would also make for an interesting "then and now" display with the new Classic figures.

Only if Bandai don't keep up the classics line. The only problem is that they would be a lot more expensive than they were back in the day but at least you'd know that you were going to get the majority of the characters plus vehicles although I only really liked the thundertank and am not too fussed if Bandai don't do vehicles for the classics line (would be suprised if they did). Back in the day I had the original thundertank plus two mutant vehicles (Skycutter,Nosediver) but back then I used to play with my Thundercats toys outside in the back garden so having the vehicles was more fun back then.

If it came tot he choice between reissues or the new classic figures, I'd definitely rather see the classic figures continue. I just hope that them waiting till next year to put out a second wave of them doesn't harm the line (going off of what I heard the rep from Toy Fair say in a video Lion-O and Tygra are the only two coming out this year).

I think Bandai need to release more than two characters in the next wave of the classics line if we have to wait so long for it. I reckon they'll release Panthro and Cheetara next but I want villians like Mumm-Ra and Grune in wave 2.

As much as I like only having two figures per wave, if we really do have to wait so long between the first two waves, than even I think we should get at least three figures, if not four in the second wave. At least one villain in the mix would be nice. My ideal second wave would be Panthro, Cheetara, and mummy Mumm-Ra.

I've actually ordered the Icon Heroes SDCC exclusive Mumm-Ra Staction figure off ebay because of how awesome it looks and the fact that the box looks just like his tomb. Plus I'm pretty sure that if I was at SDCC I would have picked one up. I figured it would be nice to have some kind of Mumm-Ra figure at this early stage seeing as how they've only released classic Lion-o and Tygra so far and I don't actually know when we will see a Bandai classic Mumm-ra. Hopefully it won't be too long.

They do not appear to be reissues. Just there to show the old with the new.

No. I don't think they should reissue the old ones. I think the Classic line is being made to satisfy the old school T-Cats fans. Plus there is more play possibility with the added articulation.

Yeah...as long as the Classics line doesn't fail me, then it will good enough for me where I wouldn't want originals reissued. The classics look close enough.

Not something I would be that interested in. Can get most of them cheap off ebay anyway. The only one i'd really be interested in is The Driller as he is hard to get and expensive.
