i got the 8 inch lion-o and tigra, but i havent seen any more in this size.

now i see a 6 inch line is out as well.

what happened to the 8 inch? are there more plans to release figures in the 8 inch line or did they switch to 6?

if anyone knows planned figures for the 8 inch line could you let me know? thanks!

the thing is i already spent money on two 8 inch thinking i could get the whole set that way. im not going to be happy if i have to buy lion-o and tigra again to have a matching set.

i can wait if they will make them. but if they just dropped it totally that will be very uncool.

thanks for the help guys. if anyone finds out for sure remember to come post in this thread!

from the interview with Bandai back in November:

Quote:
MTV Geek!: With the Classics figures being released in the 6 inch scale, what is the fate of the current 8" ThunderCats Classics line?

Brehan Maul: The move from 8” to 6” was not one that we took lightly. While very successful, the ThunderCats 8" figure line will not be continued in its current form. However we do plan to release the 8” scale in a limited edition capacity in support of those who have been with the line since the first release. Details are still being worked out, but all I can say is SHE is a fan favorite.
I think that is the latest that Bandai has made public on the 8 inch line

why? they said they're continuing the line and hinted at a female character being released (most likely cheetatra).

it sounds to me like they are going to be a pain to get. thats what i was upset about.

i looked at the 6 inch at the store today and they just don't look very good to me. especially for the price point.

ill hang on to the 2 i have and if bandai wants me to buy any more thundercats stuff they can finish the 8" character line they started...

that 14" mumra may go nicely with my 8" collection though.

We will likely know more in a few scant weeks at Toy Fair. If they have plans for any other 8" figures, our first chance to find out will be then.

Also, deleted a few posts. If you're not a staff member here, it's not your place to tell people what they should or should not be discussing.
