Not a massive fan if these things, but this combo could tempt me. Ever living form Mumm-Ra looks pretty decent.

Did you guys see the packaged images? The set also includes the sword of plundarr, and extra set of hands for mumm-ra, and an alternate young version head for Jaga. This is a must have!

Hadn't noticed the extra stuff. Pretty cool they did young Jaga. Is SDCC the only place to get this or is there any difference to the pack contents if bought elsewhere?

So i hate to be "that guy" but I contacted Icon Heroes to see if they currently planned to continue on with the Thundercats Minimates line after the release of this as the Thundercats HO series....after thanking me for the support this was the reply,

" Unfortunately there are no more planned Minimates after the San Diego Comic Con and the ThunderCats Ho sets."

So if you are a fan of this line GET THEM NOW!!!! Sales can always influence the future of product lines. Personally, I am a HUGE fan of this line and would love to see it continue.

At some point, the law of diminishing returns kicks in. After the next two sets, they would need to start scrounging for characters with mass appeal. Sure a few other characters would be a given or cool, but people who just want the main characters will have them all after these next two sets. The sets become less and less appealing and a harder sell. They're already dealing with a double niche market (Thundercats fans who also happen to like Minimates).

If they did a set with Captain Shiner I would be all over it. Maybe Shiner, Safari Joe, Turmagar and Hatchi Man, with Berbil Belle thrown in to finish the Berbils.

Definitely, the sets that are available are the characters with the most mass appeal. Bengali, Lynx-O and Pumyra don't even bring in the "love" that the original cats do. It is just a shame. I was hoping we may see a Lunatak set to finish the whole thing off. It would have been perfect, they could have had Luna as the Mini figure that came with. Unfortunately, Amok probably wouldn't have made the cut. I know the Lunataks aren't huge favorites of Thundercats fans around the world but it would have been nice to FINALLY, see some official Thundercats merchandise of them.

I would give my left nut for a Lunatak set. Um...Maybe not a nut but something important.

Hey Guys! I just got this set in the mail from AFX and I can't tell you enough how awesome it is! Not only does it come with all those Mumm-ra and Jaga extras mentioned before, but it also has an extra chest piece for Grune, featuring the t-cats symbol so he can pal around with young Jaga! It also comes with and extra belt for Lion-o and harness for Panthro from set 1 since those seemed to be plagued with paint issues. Here's some pics!

Hi, does anyone know what the difference between the SDCC version of this set and the November retail release version? BBTS has two different preorders up and it's confusing. Thanks guys.. love collecting these minimates, I have every set so far.

Thank you Lody. I grabbed a set from AFX's site but wasn't sure if there were any differences.
