Default ThunderCats 2011 Toys Unveiled; Collector's Classic Figures!

Thought this needed its own thread!!!

Thanks to Dr. Slump!

In a few moments you will see footage from the new series and figures... just transferring London Toy Fair footage from my camcorder!

(No pictures were allowed so this is really gonna be brief!)

Edit: Here you go...

Sword of omens, Tigra, Lion-O, Cheetara, Panthro), the Thunder Tank (two separate words) and the... Thunder Bike!

Blurry still from my video... pictures were strictly forbidden, sorry guys!
The interesting part of this picture is the promo picture of the Classics line (20cm tall) Lion-O. Very similar to the Icon Heroes statue but with complete articulation.
Additionally, there will be 15cm (larger?) deluxe variations of the modern standard figures, with pretty much the same design.

A brief look at the new Cat's Lair. Or Tower in that case.

Finally, a picture of the new show character designs!

Chris here...

Oh my God, this is amazing!!!

You know what, I actually quite like the character designs they've come up with - even though they're updates, I can still tell instantly who's supposed to be who and what's supposed to be what, the biggest departure (and worst design overhaul) for me is Panthro, the rest of these...wowsers!

Feeling more optimistic about the new series now!!

Take care...

I knew there was a reason why I was still awake at 4AM, Chris!

I really like how the classic figure (from what we can see) is turning out! Damn, I'm gonna be broke this year!

Great stuff,

The sword telescopes out by the looks of it in the package versus on the shelf, nice design. Glad I'm selling off other toy lines to make room

I have a MOTUC subscription so that's the only line I'm actively collecting, but that line is super expensive. At least these will be mass produced and will cost a lot less that MOTUC.

I'm running out of space in my room though lol

The available playsets were only the Tower (replacing the Lair?), the Thunder Tank and the Tron-like bike (that can be stored inside the Thunder Tank). Each figure features a magnet and they communicate with the vehicles (maybe it recognizes each character but I'm not quite sure).

The figures are quite small, very similar to the Ben 10 toyline but much more articulated and very well detailed (if the identical figures make it to production). Panthro has scars throughout his massive body and they were actually textured instead of just painted.

Additionally, there will be deluxe 15cm versions of the new figures. Lion-O looked older in the pictured one and he wears a big armor.

The classic Lion-O was looking very loyal to the original design, I could easily compare this figure's picture with the MOTU Classics toyline.

I'm pretty much positive... but a little bit concerned about the classic: I'm not quite sure if it's only going to be Lion-O! :/

@Manny: I'm afraid the Classics will not be mass-produced. It said something about "Limited edition'...

Glad to see there will be new figures based on the original series as well. Hopefully there will be more characters than just Lion-O for the classic line.

Looking forward to more pics and details. WB and Bandai are going to make 2011 a great year for ThunderCats fans and collectors .

If you look at the box is says Thunder Lynx...perhaps it is an interaction feature similar to what the Laser Sabers and the Cat's lair used to have

I like the new designs for the new animation and I am very much looking forward to see the new show!
However I wouldn't want figures of the new designs because with most of my toy collecting habits I choose the nostalgic designs over updates.
So I'm super thrilled we're getting the classic design figures as well!
Those are the ones I want badly!
They are going to be 20cm That's huge, 8 Inches!!!
