As most of you know (especially the Transformers Fans) that Toy Fair 2012 UK happened last week. However, only authorized media were allowed to take photographs. One such media organization is ToyNews Magazine. They have shared some images on their Face Book page.

It's not much, but here are the ThunderCats related stuff. Check ‘em out: Toy Fair 2012 | Facebook

For those who do not have access. I mirrored the Images with this Post.

Enjoy!

This line of chibi-cats is getting interesting. If I'm able to get a Mumm-Ra either on his own, or in a smaller than six pack, I will. He's too hilarious to ignore, lol.

Hopefully they show off at least some of the next waves figures at the New York toy fair. If I'm not mistaken last year's toy fair brought us first looks at most, if not all, of last years products. Would be nice if the same happens this year. I'd love to see who all will be coming along in the Classic line this year, and whether or not the inevitable 6" Modern Panthro v2 will be properly colored.

Thanks for the info and link. Unfortunately, nothing too exciting shown.

Just hoping that they'll show an 8" Cheetara.

I hope we get a glimpse at the new 8 inch and 6 inch line. They finally have these at my Local Walmart and I freaking love the 6 inch figures. Mumm-ra just needs a Cape and Ma-mutt and Lion-o just needs a none yelling face with snarf and I am freaking hooked. Would love for Tigra and Slithe, Pantho and Monkian, Cheetara and Jackalman. I would dump all my other collecting for this 6 inch line. I really hope it takes off.

Yeah, this line is going nowhere! Probably won't last another year.

Toy Fair is less than a week away. Bandai will be there in full force (as will we). Expect new Thundercats products and toys there.

I love how people say the line is going nowhere and is moving slow when it hasn't been more than 2 months since we had previews of new figures.

Toy Fair shall be epic this year. I feel it in my bones. If it's anything like last year's, there should be enough reveals to keep any Thundercats fan happy (well, most of us anyways).

Yeah. Though if you were to compare it to something like Transformers, it would seem kind of slow. All things considered, the line is moving at quite a nice pace.

It's completely unfair to compare this line to something like Transformers. Thundercats was never as popular a brand in the 80's, was off toy shelves for near 30 years, had no marketing, no movie, no tv show...Nothing until this new show came along. And while it is selling relatively well, it's going to be years (an take a monster hit movie) for it to drawing in the same type of cash as a brand like Transformers to justify the constant over saturation of the product with no down time.

Wasn't saying it was a fair comparison, just brought it up as I'm sure most of the people saying the Thundercatrs line is moving slowly are using Transformers as their idea of how they think it should be moving along.

Wasn't directed at you, but at the idea of product saturation to the level of a Transformers (which is how many people are going judge this). It was more of a general statement for people not to panic. Thundercats is essentially starting from scratch in the market and needs to grow over time at its own pace.

Exactly. Which is why I'm really hoping that CN doesn't screw over the new show. If the show continues to do well, it'll help the toy-line out a bit. The toy-line continuing to sell well will also help Bandai increase it's presence over time. Would be great to see Thundercats turn into a major presence again, but it's going to take a while for it to build up steam.
