Stuff is looking great. I'm sold on the Classics line already. I'm really curious to see the 6" figures still. I'm curious if they will flow well with other 6" lines.

Classics Tygra is straight up awesome. As is classics Lion-O. The 2011 figures are not too shabby either. The Thunder Tank is fantastic. Love the Snarf peeking out.

Glad that it's confirmed that Cheetara is 4 inch, not the classics. There was a bit of confusion floating around there for a bit.

Digging the "4 inch" Panthro too.

I wonder how long we will be waiting to see a Classics Panthro. I doubt we will see it at Toyfair since its not even part of the first wave.

I kind of hope Bandai has plans to expand the 8" scale beyond Thundercats...like maybe Classic MMPR figures in that scale with that format of articulation.

Might pick up Lion-O and the eventual Classics Mum-ra. The 4" figures don't look bad.

I'd actually pick up some of the first season originals if they were to do this.

Well see I'm noticing a pattern. The 4" Thundercats figures seem to be the exact same format as the 4" MMPR and now, Samurai Ranger figures. The old MMPR figures are arguably still the best MMPR figures, and IIRC, were 8" scale too.

Now if we're lucky, Tamashii(Bandai Japan's collectors' division), will be itching to make SH Figurarts Thundercats, and if that happens, collectors will go ape shit and preorder the fuck out of them. Helps that they're 6" scale IIRC.

I dig how the 4" figures have magnet activated features. Clever, and does not take up space unlike electronic and spring activated gimmicks! UNCOMPROMISED ARTICULATION FOR THE FUCKING WIN!

Looks like it, very interesting. Only articulation they don't have that would be very beneficial is the ab crunch. Other than that, I'm super happy for these.

I am very impressed with with Tygra. I have no doubt the whole classics line is going to be awesome. I wonder if they'll do vehicles and playsets to go with them?

That would be extremely awesome but I doubt we will see any. Being these are 8", a Thundertank would be pretty big. Well, unless it was just like the original that only held one figure (if I recall right).

I was wondering if the 6" line will get any, though?

Well it looks like Lion-O at least has a mid-chest ball, and Tygra may very well be sporting a NECA-style ball waist. These look fantastic, I can't wait. I hope the new cartoon is great, I'm not sure I'd pick up the newer styled figures if it's not.

Let's see some villains!

I can't wait to see more of the classics figures. The price seems in line with the DC Classics line so it seems pretty reasonable and less than the MOTUC on the Matty website.

I think Snarf peeking out of the Thundertank has me sold on that now. It's exactly how I'd want to display it.

More of a 4" collector than anything else, but I do find the Classics figures to be really tempting. The original cast wasn't huge so I think I'll have to go up my collecting scale since the full team wouldn't take up all that much room and they look great so far.

Hmm. I hate to be "that guy" but, I don't know about these figures. I always reserve full judgement until I have one in hand, but I think these figs are looking a bit dated. Who does a balled neck-joint that starts in the shoulders anymore? And what's up with the (bad) vintage styled musculature? Comparing these figs to other "Classics" styled figs we have today, I'm not that impressed.

Like everyone else, I'm excited that we're getting new 'Cats toys, but we shouldn't call just anything they throw at us "awesome". Not yet, anyway.

I'll be that "other guy" then. Its freakin Thundercats, they aren't hideous by any means at all. I'd much rather have something that was just short of perfect (and this has yet to be seen and won't be until they are in hand) than nothing at all. We have waited 20+ years for these and now we get them. Awesome.

the lion-o really does look fantastic, if not just for his glove lol. i will say this, i have a bunch of ultimate muscles from 02 or so, and they wont fit with heman. so if they stay like this they get their own shelf. i dont think they will mind
