Cool.

So, is someone planning on checking out Bandai's booth and reporting to us?

Joe Moore 07-11-2012 06:54 PM

We have a full team at the show for all of our sites. If there's anything to be seen, we'll have it here.

Great! Excited to hear any and all news!

McSoundwave 07-12-2012 02:45 PM

Hmmm. So the only way to get the decrepit version of Mumm-ra is via that two-pack?

Yup. Sucks for those of us who already bought the Ever Living Mumm-Ra figure separately! Gah!

Mezco are almost leading the way in the modern 'classic' TC's line. Shame they didnt freelance their sculptors and designers to Bandai. Although i know its all about business and making an affordable small toy that can be pushed out, still bring back LJN

SDCC 12 - Few More Mezco Thundercats Pics

McSoundwave 07-13-2012 05:07 PM

"Glow-in-the-dark" ever-living form!?!?! Whaaaaat!?! :eek: That's way too gnarly. Even though I already have the single Mezco release, I might have to pick this two-pack up as this gimmick added some incentive beyond just the decrepit version. I sure do love me some gitd! Anyone have pics of him "glowing" yet?

wes2882 07-13-2012 09:03 PM

What's next from Mezco?
 
Really excited to get this Mumm-ra exclusive and Panthro! Any way of asking the fine folks at Mezco for a little hint of who/what is next to come? Or at least get some assurances that there IS more to come? I was burned by Hard Heroes (and Bandai), but I really have high hopes from Mezco!

User897 07-17-2012 11:15 PM

I ordered the Mumm-Ra 2-pack from Mezco as soon as I heard about it, before SDCC. They took my money lightning-quick, but it still hasn't shipped. Joe, do you or anybody reading this have a ship date? They have not responded to my emails at all.

* EDIT *

A bit of an update. I found out why they didn't reply. My emails BOUNCED, from all of their accounts.

These are all no good:

info@mezcotoyz.com
customercare@mezcotoyz.com
sales@mezcotoyz.com

I've used the contact form as well:

http://www.mezcotoyz.com/contacts/index/

But, no replies there either. I am going to try the toll-free number tomorrow (1-888-996-3926).

Joe Moore 07-18-2012 09:58 AM

Probably won't ship for a few days, if not longer. Recovering from a con like SDCC isn't something that most companies do overnight. Especially when they are distributing items themselves.

User897 07-18-2012 09:07 PM

Indeed.

I tried the number, but got a "mailbox is full" recording.

grune7 07-19-2012 02:35 PM

I wouldn't worry. I don't think they sent out shipping notices and that they shipped them out before the con. I won't know until I get home tonight but I recieved a package today i believe is the exclusive mumras

User897 07-19-2012 04:40 PM

My order status has updated to SHIPPED via UPS, but they did not provide a tracking number.

McSoundwave 07-19-2012 04:57 PM

:mad: I want to order one of these sets, but f'n Mezco doesn't ship to APO addresses. Boo! :rolleyes:

User897 07-19-2012 06:39 PM

No shipping to Army Post Office addresses? BOO! That's just un-American! I mean seriously! Even Army Brats gotta have their Mumm-Ra fix! Do you have any family/friends nearby that could help out and have it shipped to them?

Yes, bloody wankers those Mezco folks are. :p I do have peeps back in the states I could lean on to help me out, but I don't want to burden them with the minutia that is my toy hunting. They have other, more important things to concern themselves with. Plus there is the standard cost of shipping to them domestically only to have them turn around, double-down and forward to me over here. All told, it's not really worth it. I can just purchase elsewhere for approximately the same cost and have it shipped direct. That is, unless, I can proctor a trade for a MISB set via one of these boards. ;)

Once yours arrives would you do us all the kind service of posting pics? I'm particularly interested in seeing the glow-in-the-dark feature inherent in that EL form figure. Thanks in advance!

User897 07-20-2012 09:01 AM

Gladly. :) And thanks for your service, McSoundwave.

User897 07-20-2012 07:39 PM

To my surprise, it arrived today. I live in NY, and it was shipped from NY, so that was fast!

Here's some pictures:

http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra001.jpg
http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra002.jpg
http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra003.jpg
http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra004.jpg
http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra005.jpg

My initial concern was that the added glow in the dark paint would detract from Mumm-Ra's blue appearance in regular lighting conditions, but that concern has been lifted. Mezco did not over-do the additional paint, and he looks great.

Up next, I am going to attempt to take pictures of him glowing in the dark. I gotta get the tripod and stuff for that to even remotely work.

User897 07-20-2012 09:44 PM

I was unsuccessful in getting any glowing shots. I am going to try and shoot video next and hopefully the camera will pick it up.

Now that it's opened, here's some more:

http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra006.jpg
http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra007.jpg
http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra008.jpg
http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra009.jpg
http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra010.jpg
http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra011.jpg
http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra012.jpg
http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra013.jpg
http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra014.jpg
http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra015.jpg
http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/...Mumm-Ra016.jpg

The last picture shows the slight green tint of the glow paint. That's just because of the flash and it does not show or detract from the figure at all to the naked eye.

I just tried to shoot video, and it didn't pick it up. I'm not sure what to try from here. My camera is an Olympus FE-310 if anyone has any ideas. The only way I could get it to work is with a blacklight, and I don't have one.

McSoundwave 07-22-2012 09:06 AM

@User897...thanks for the pics...set looks good, but that was to be expected. No worries about not being able to showcase the GITD feature. Tricky proposition I'm sure. In any event, in your opinion, how well does it "glow"?

But cotdamn...I need to get a hold of that decrepit version. This set is a must!

User897 07-22-2012 11:21 AM

The glow works really well. Every bit of blue skin glows in the dark from head to toe. His face, toes, everything. It is brightest on his hands, as if he is focusing some kind of evil energy there to attack with. The glow lasts all through the night, too!

Nice! Sounds like pure win!

User897 07-26-2012 04:15 AM

I was just thinking that Mezco could enlarge the decayed form Mumm-Ra, put a coin slot in the back, and a stopper in the bottom, and they have a coin bank.

kevster 07-26-2012 10:33 AM

They look great. personal preference is that they're too big, other than that they look great. To me second only to the Icon heroes stuff.

Bravo!

THIS is how Thundercats should be done.

User897 08-09-2012 10:52 PM

I have a blacklight coming in the mail, so hopefully I'll be able to get a glow in the dark shot or two.

User897 08-10-2012 09:05 PM

Finally got the blacklight. Here we go:

User897 08-16-2012 09:06 PM

Wow, I guess interest in this has gone down the crapper. :(

McSoundwave 08-17-2012 02:19 PM

:p Naw...interest is still there. Thanks for taking the time to post the "glowing" pics btw. Even though I'm sure it look worlds better in person as the pics don't do it full justice, I still get the gist. This set is awesome; a must-have for me which is why I'm elated to find...

SDCC 2012 Exclusive Mega Scale Thundercats - Glow-In-The-Dark Mumm-Ra Two-Pack - Thundercats (2011) Figures

Done and done!

Bam bitches...get 'em while you can!

User897 08-17-2012 08:52 PM

Umm, pardon me, but....

Why not get the set from Mezco and save some cash?

Mezco direct no shippee to APO so that's not an option for me unfortunately. :(

User897 08-19-2012 09:23 AM

Ah, that makes sense. Well, no it doesn't (BOO on you, Mezco!), but you know what I mean.

Lody 09-14-2012 04:05 PM

Found Panthro at Toys R Us today for $29.99

rapido3 10-11-2012 12:36 AM

Is it known whether Panthro is the last one of these? Or is there plans for more?
