Have we heard or do we know that we'll be getting more classic figures? Someone told me that a 6 inch Wilytwin 2-pack is planned?

Apparently the Wily kids are being released in the modern 6 inch scale as a two pack, as heard in an interview in the news section here.

The 8" classics are definitely continuing, but no specific figures have been confirmed yet. Though considering they said we should have the main team completed by the end of next year, and that there are four figures coming out each year (starting next year of course), it's safe to assume that two of next year's figures will be Wilykat and Wilykit.

True, but as you said, those will be the modern designs, not the classic ones, and at the 6", rather than the 8" scale that all of the classic figures will be at.

4 a year, huh? Definitely Panthro, Cheetarah and the Twins are the most obvious choices. That being said, it'll be interesting to see if that theory pans out. I'm crossing my fingers for a Thunder Tank!

I hope they have more articulation than the 4 inch ones, even some poseable tails!

I thought it was 2 per quarter...

Plans have apparently changed. the 8-a-year bit of info was given out at Toy Fair, while the 4-a-year information was given at SDCC. While it sucks that they've cut the amount of figures per year in half, for what the classics line is, it makes sense. That and they're apparently going to be expanding it into "other categories", so that should hopefully help supplement the fewer number of figures we'll be getting each year.

4 a year huh? damn, now I'll have to wait about 5 years to get Lynx-o,Bengali and Pumyra. (Assuming we'll get both Mumm-ra's, the Mutants and maybe Grune 1st, and some retool/paints)

Are you talking about modern or classics?

Watch, they're going to pull a SDCC exclusive on us. I'm stoked about the classics though. No matter what they give us per year, does it really matter? I think that Thundercats are here to stay for a while.

SDCC exclusives are inevitable. I just hope they keep them to just repaints that might not fly at mass retail.

Assuming the line continues to sell well in the eyes of Bandai and major retailers for several years to come, than it doesn't really matter.

of course they are going to do an SDCC limited version. Thats a no brainer. Afterall, they made the SDCC version of Lion-O.

I hope its not a repaint but an exclusive figure.
