if Slithe's normal pose is with his arms up and you cant make them stay down, that is just sad.

Whats the point of the new Mumm-Ra???????????? Tiny Wings??? We already have the DX version. we need more?

Lion-O with slight modification with the Armor of Omens.....boring.

Panthro with arm armor and wierd expression....really?

Claudis. he's good.

The EoT set is kinda cute. Don't think I'll be getting it for myself, but depending on the recommended age it's approved for, I might get it for my nephew. Pass for now.

Panthro's arm armor is pretty cool, and while I see what they were trying to do with his expression, it really does just end-up looking like lipstick. I wonder how the 6" figure will look when they inevitably do the same for it. Pass.

Lion-O's new 4" figure is interesting. Looks like the new claw shield is based off of the old concept for the armor, rather than the one used in-show. Hopefully they'll correct that for the inevitable 6" version. Pass.

Mumm-Ra's 4" figure is actually pretty cool. I wasn't expecting the wings to be added, but it's a really nice touch. Hopefully they have plans to do something similar to the 6" scaled figure. Pass.

Deluxe Panthro and Slythe aren't too bad, for what they are anyways. I do like how they've incorporated Mumm-Ra's lantern into Slythe's gimmick. Hopefully that thing gets released outside of that set. I'm also hoping that Slythe get's a 6" figure at some point in the future. Pass on both.

4" scaled Claudus looks pretty cool. Since I doubt we'll ever see him made as a 6" figure, I'll most likely get this. The sculpt looks pretty good, and the articulation doesn't look like it'll be too hindered. Only thing really missing is the claw shield, but that's not a deal breaker. He's the only figure pictured here that I know I'll be getting.

didn't see the second pic of him at first. I wonder if Lion-O is in mid transformation or will he be able to make the gauntlet grow without a full transformation?

Cladus is win but my son has been asking for Jaga

Other than that-I hope there is more to Slithe than what is pictured.

Don't need extra armor Lion-o or smaller wings Mum-ra and both Panthros are a pass since I have the 4inch and 8 inch deluxe already

I may have to get a second Lizard Cannon to swap arms with Slithe, love the Jaga lantern that comes with him. Claudus looks great, definite buy. I might get the single carded Mumm-ra too. I like the new Lion-o but I'm pretty content with the first release.

Besides the lipstick-looking gums, I'm liking the new look on Panthro. Lion-O... not sure of how I feel about him yet, that gauntlet arm looks too ridiculously big.

Digging the new gradual armor upgrades. Can't wait for more. I might have to pick these 2 up alongside mumm-ra. The rest are pure pass though.

Mumm-ra I might reconsider since i already have the open winged version, but that one will look better in a sword battle with Lion-O than the one with wings wide open.


The armor upgrades are story-centric. We'll be seeing them start to show up within the next 10 episodes or so, probably within the next 5 somewhere.

I'm done with the 4inch line, so they can keep their Cladius and Slythe. After how crappy the entire team looks together (seriously, Tygra and Cheetara are the worst), I'm just going to stick to the 6inch figure. If they do Silverhawks in 4inch, I'll probably get them, but other than them, I will pass).

Wow, an entire wave of peg warmers. Claudus is the only one worth buying and I'm sure it'll only be the fans and collectors. I can understand putting in a Lion-O but another Panthro?? A new Cheetara would have been nice with her Cleric garb. They could have made Leo and his girlfriend the Panther girl or that cool Solid Snake Lion guy from the past, he looked bad-ass.

I figure that is what Lion-O can do once he gets one of the stones for his claw shield, but Panthro is a suprise.

Maybe in this series when Lion-O does the "Thundercats Ho!" with the sword it transfers updates to other members of the team, and they will wind up with their own armors as well by the time they have all the stones.

The one that had an outfit a lot like the original Lion-O's? That would have definitely been interesting to see in the toy-line. Though very doubtful do to his very limited screen-time.

I honestly hope that isn't the case. I would rather the other cats get their own upgrades without being dependent on Lion-O yelling ho...

I've given up on these. Great promise but fizzled with the lack if articulation. Great for kids not fr me as a collector. These things are now flooding the shelves.

Ya lak of articulation on slithe is bull what the hell is the gimmick he slaps barrels ? I'll still by him even tho it looks like a happy meal toy. I will be getting Mum ras tank don't mind that the normal 4" figs don't fit since it dosnt have a window or cockpit you can't see in. Probly get the armor of omens it will make a great statue for a dio or something then basic 4" lion o, claudes,panthro.

I was soooo stoked for this line. The cartoon mythos is great but the figures well...I let the lack of articulation compared to my other collection{MU} not sway me and I dove into this line. However seeing the new product I gotta say my love for the new Thundercats{the toys not the show} is fizzling out. I can't see anything from the new stuff I really have an interest in. The best figure is Claudius and that's sad. They had a real shot with the tank and most all of us were looking forward to Slithe. Now we get a tank that can't be used with any figure except the small special one that comes with it, heck even the Armor comes with a regular 4" figure. Then there's Slithe who apparently has to hold his arms up because of a stupid gimmick. Gotta say Thundercats! NOOOOO!

Don't know if you guys noticed, but Slithe has ball jointed shoulders with a swivel.

You won't need to have his arms up constantly. And it you put his arms down, pushing the action feature lever will just make his arms go up instead of down.

I'm more upset about there not being elbow articulation.

This gimmicky one doesn't mean there won't be a regular one on the way later in the line. With the exception of Grune, all the other Deluxe figures have had non-gimmicky releases, and I'll be surprised if the same won't be true for Grune and Slithe.

I'm loving the fact Claudus is there. A great homage to Mr Kenney.
Hope more 'classic' figs turn up. I'm going to the London toy fair in January so maybe Bandai will reveal more

You know Ill bet Slythes arms will be a bit poseable or at least have some elbow articulation to make him into a passible pose.

I am going for this one, claudius, and mummras tank

The problem is, there are a lot of gimmick figures which suffer in articulation (see Slithe's legs for example, which are not even moveable) due to the gimmick. This would have been fine in say, 1985, but in 2011? Really? It's like we are going backwards in engineering. I'd like to point the designers to Superman TAS boxing Darkseid/Superman (from 1990) or Deluxe Animated Optimus Prime (from 2007), both toys have pull-back punching action AND are well-articulated and Prime can even transform into a truck...

Then again, this is Bandai. Just compare their Power Rangers zords to any Transformer, and you'll see why these toys end up this way.

I am quite sure however, we will get a normal, no-extra-action-feature Slithe down the line. I will stick to the 6 inch figures with the main cast, and get guys like Claudus, Slithe and (he is 100% coming someday) Jaga in the 4 inch line. The 4 inch main cast are all quite forgettable.

I also wish they had bothered to paint 6 inch Panthro's nunchucks, I mean, really, that's just lazy.

If this was Mattel or Hasbro, we would probably have upteenth Lion-O figures with new action features, BUT (like in Star Wars or Justice League), we would also get guys like the Drifter, random Lizard troopers, Leo, Elephants, Berbils etc... in every wave. This series has such a huge cast of well-designed guest starts, it would be a pity if they did not get made into toys.

Yeah, I wasn't too worried. So far the toys seem to be sticking close to the show and not going for frivolous redesigns that are toy only. So to do two like this so fast when there are so many others that could be covered still, it had to be something that was going to be happening pretty soon in the show.

Probably ep 14-17 somewhere Panthro will get his new arms. Either power gem related, or the berbils make new arms for him.


I also like this slower rate of release though. Saturate the market with a current wave until everyone has it, then move on to the next, rinse and repeat. This way everyone has a chance to get what they want.

Claudius is a definite buy for me, maybe a Slithe, gotta see him in person, also that ultimate zord armor Liono looks like i'll buy. that means they'll make one for Mummra...unless theyre jerks

lol at angry liono with Quagmire-found-internet-porn arm and angry face panthro. In all honesty Mummra looks like a good mold, but i already have the deluxe first release
