That version of Mumm-ra actually gets a cape and the sword of plun-darr, but a bandai 6" figure, oh no.

That's because the guys behind the minimates are actually excited about the line as opposed to Bandai.

In hindsight WB should have licensed Bandai for the new figures, and someone else to do the classics line. My only hope for new classic 6" figures is WB handing the license over to someone else. Hopefully it's not one of those contract deals where Bandai gets to sit on the license until 2014 or something.

Since there are limited answers as to where and when these will be made available, I pulled the trigger and grabbed a set on ebay for a pretty reasonable price.

These minimates are simply amazing. And, unlike Bandai, they already Know and make it open they'll be making 4 waves. For me I love mumm ra and so wave 4 with the man transformed will make an amazing addition

I had guessed that the people at Bandai didn't care about Thundercats. That's why they didn't seem to make a very good attempt at helping the line succeed. It's much better when you know that some of the people who work for the toy companies are actually passionate about Thundercats and consumers of the products themselves and know what the fans want. That way you would have people on the inside promoting better ideas, saying what the fans say and will do everything in their power to help the product succeed.

Ordered mine last night and I agree, the shipping was a very high for such a small item.

I ordered 2 sets this morning. I'm debating getting the thundertank to go with them, but I think I'll wait and see how much I end up spending at hasbrotoyshop first.

I'm hoping the minimates are successful enough where we get a set with Pumyra, Bengali and Lynx-O.

Yeah, we have to see Bengali, Pumyra and Lynx-O for sure. I am hoping they are the other three in the Wave 4 set with Mumm-ra the Everliving. I'm assuming Ma-mutt will come with that set too.

Yes I got them through shopafx.com For 3 packs shipping was about $15

as a side note...

If anyone has any questions in regards to Minimates, feel free to ask me. I have collected them for several years and have over 400. If you want to find out more info on Minimates go here.

The Thundercats minimates made me want to collect the real ghostbusters minimates. I love how the animation style transfers perfectly on to the details of these figures. I plan on getting all the Thundercats sets.
