Hi fellow Thunderfans. I am working on the much wanted Thunderstrike. Ever since i saw the pic of the prototype when i was a kid i wanted this toy. I was also a bit disappionted the prototype did not look like the show but i still wanted it. I bought the lasersabers as a kid just so i could have the card with the thunderstrike prototype pic and i would look at it for hours.

Now i decided to make it and make it closer to the show instead of copying the prototype. I am making two of these and will end up selling one on ebay eventually. I will need to eventually work on the side cars but for now i am working on the middle part. I will also make a removable briale board for Lynx-o. Fellow fans, let me know what you think so far and why o why did bandi never think to make this toy when they owned the licence for our much loved Thundercats.

Hi fellow Thunderfans. I have almost completed one of the side cars. In my 20 years of experience in customizing toys this has been one of the hardest toy projects i have worked on. I still need to finish painting the side car and adding stickers. I finished the interior and made it look like it does in the show. The side car clicks onto the main one and can be removed when you pull hard. I used clear acrylic cabinate fastners to do this. I wont be able to make a second side car for now untill i buy another toy vehicle i expanded to fit Thundercats toys. I will post more pics soon. Its a super large toy and I see now why they made a small prototype version in the 80's.

I really would have liked bandi to make this vehicle to spare me the hassle of making it. They would make mad profit. When the Thunderstrike debuted in the show I was very excited and couldnt wait to go to toys r us hoping it would be made for retail. after seeing it in the back of the lasersabers packaging i went everywhere looking for it. So mad they did not make it. Fellow fans let me know what you think!
