Not in my area, anyway. I live in a NW suburb of Houston, TX, called Cypress.

Target = NO
Walmart = NO
TRU = Haven't checked because they are too far to go without air conditioning in this drought!

Is there anyone near my area that has something to report?

You really should make that trip to TRU, regardless of the heat. TRU has had them for about two weeks now.

In the Indianapolis, IN area, I still haven't seen them in any Wal-Mart stores. I have yet to look in any Target stores. (At least on the South Side.)

Hi all,

Is there any word on when the thundercats toys will come to Canada. I called my local toys r us and they suggested a mid to late September time frame for the release of the toys.

Any additional information will be greatly appreciated!

Not necesarily all of them. I was at the closest TRU to me last Friday, and they still hadn't put out anything (not even Mezco Lion-O), so I would recommend calling before making the trip.

Mine just put everything out on Tuesday. One of the guys that works there said one dude bought all the Classic Lion-o figures. I expect to see them on eBay here locally soon.

I've found everything thats supposed to be out, but seeing as the D.C./MD sighting thread is mostly dead of post, but full of views I'm holding my sightings to avoid giving scalpers the info....I've run into a couple fellow fans out on my trips and passed the info to them personally...but when you have 6 post and over 200 views after I asked people to at least introduce themselves I'm a little suspicious of who's actually viewing the thread.....stuff disappears almost instantly here in baltimore.

all of the TRU'S are cleared out here except for the $12.99 Lion-o & Tygras. K-mart and Wal-Mart still haven't got them.

TRU is getting them but I called around and spoke to the employees. They are getting ALOT of calls about them so i if I were you, I would venture out to TRU.

Not when the car interior is over 100 degrees. It makes me sick. Looks like I'll have to stick to the 3 Classic figures I got through the mail, at least for a while.

TRU is DEFINITELY the store to check. That's where I've gotten most of the 4" line. Local Targets don't have anything and I haven't checked the K-Marts but that's moot since TRU has them.

It took me 4 Walmarts and a TRU to get the 6" figures I wanted. Found a 6" Lion-O at one Walmart, and the last WM I went to actually had all the Thundercats merchandise out. I only bought the 6" Panthro. Regret not getting the Classics and the 6" Mumm-Ra, as these things rock.

I got all the basics along with the 6-inch Lion-O and Thundertank. In my area (Long Island, New York) only TRU have been getting them and it seems they are selling out quick. Which I see as good news.
How is the DX Sword of Omens? because that and the 6 inch Mumm-ra are my next targets

The Dx sword is great, for $20.00 it's a steal, the mini or reg to me is a rip off even at $10.00

I have almost all of the 4", I need Panthro 4" keep missing him I wonder why he's hard, maybe because of the thundertank, I have 2 liono classics, tygra classic, and all 3 6". It's weird I found Cheetara and Grune quicker than Panthro, it's gotta be because of the thundertank.

It's because Bandai's assortments are ran by idiots. The basic case lay out is:

Lion-O x3-4
Mumm-Ra (Mummy) x2-3 (WHY?!)
Tygra x2
Panthro x1
Cheetara x1 (I've seen one case that has 2)
WilyKit x1
WilyKat x1

There is no case with more than 1 Panthro, Kit, or Kat. We all know why Cheetara, Kit, and Kat are 1 per case, but I can not for the life of me figure out why they made Panthro 1 per case. Panthro is the Green Ranger of ThunderCats. He's the beat all end all fan favorite. Everyone wants him. And why is Mumm-Ra 3 per case? Panthro should have been at least 2 per case.

In fact, I think the general assortment should've been:

Lion-O x2
Tygra x2
Panthro x2
Cheetara x2 (or just one if Bandai is really that scared of boobs)
WilyKit x1
WilyKat x1
Mumm-Ra (Mummy) x1

That makes all the figures everyone wants well proportioned and the ones only collectors will get not clog shelves.

They must be the same guys who made all those MOTU 2002 case assortments loaded with He-Man and Skeletor

Most stores (i.e. Target and Wal-Mart) are probably waiting until it nears the Holiday season before putting out the bulk of the toys. Obviously not to say they won't put stuff out before then.

target is waiting for their reset, but as for walmart it depends on the store itself cause they are not required to have the figures so its up to the person in charge of the toys to decide if they want them or not. Well at least thats what i was told when i asked. With the way they're selling though im sure every store will be getting them eventually, they would be stupid not too.

I went to target and walmart in mira mesa last night and found nothing. I only saw some figures in toysrus. I asked the walmart worker if they had anything for thundercats and he said only toysrus had them and that walmart was not allowed to carry them yet. What ever that meant. He seemed a little annoyed so I didn't ask anything else.

ah i checked the ones in shirley, riverhead & holbrook. Checked holbrook again yesterday and it looked liked they got another shipment (and more than just 1 case) but they didnt have what i wanted. Checked another walmart too and they had nothing but the person i talked to said that walmart is not suppose to be carrying them but they werent suppose to be carrying smurfs either and they got them. Pretty much they're like target, they have no clue what they are getting until the shipment actually comes in. TRU is the only one thats guarantied to be getting them on a regular basis right now. Best thing to do is talk to the manager and see if they will hold the figure your looking for when they get a new shipment, most likely youll be like me and be put on a waiting list. The main problem right now is most of the figures come 1 per case. And of course the only figure i want is 1 per case.

I agree, checked yesterday and they still don't have them but they can get in REAL STEEL figures? WTH? But seriously I hope they carry the deluxes when they get them in since I can't find them anywhere but TRU and seem to always miss on Grune.

My nearest Walmart still doesn't have the toys. There was one lonely Tower of Omens playset on the bottom shelf. All the pegs were there with Thundercats stickers, but not one figure was there. The strange thing is, they usually don't open up the shelf space until the toys arrive. It's been three days now and all they have is the one Tower set.

I called my TRU yesterday and they said they had no idea when they will get any Thundercats stuff, she said to check back later. I looked up Bandai Canada and it was odd because it said they are going to release stuff in the U.S. and Canada at the same time???? I just want me some thundercats!

Only store I've seen 'em at is TRU and all they had were a couple of 6 inch figures which I have no interest in. I just want the 4 inch figures. Walmart and Target haven't put any out yet.
