The site looks to finally be gone. Bandai's main site has removed all traces of and references to Thundercats as well. Not that they had updated it in ages. Also, not surprising, but I guess worth noting.

I'm personally going to take this as a good sign that Bandai will not be renewing their license for the rights to Thundercats toys.

I would assume that if they were even remotely interested in coming out with some kind of Thundercats classics line they wouldn't be erasing all traces of having ever had anything to do with it.

I wish I knew. I'm hoping the rights revert back to Warner Bros. by years end. I'm sure there's a clause in there about inactivity with the license.

That would be nice. If so I hope WB is still committed to continuing with some line of figures.

Thank god .... Bandai is a second rate toy company who's figures never really appreciate over time .... Hopefully a reputable company like hasbro can pick it up , that would be my dream scenario lol ... Don't get me wrong , these figures were actually some of bandai's better work .... But their whole handling and lazy attitude towards the franchise has really pissed me off lol .... Bitter much

If Hasbro builds figures like their Marvel Universe line or Marvel Legends I say Hasbro all the way. DC 3 3/4 figs suck as do all non MU /GIJOE lines nowdays.
