So, with the SDCC announcement that Thundercats is gonna get canceled, how much you wanna bet Mattel will blow out unsold stock dirt cheap?

Tcats fans get screwed again. And this time, the figures were nice.

Still, glad I held on to my Bandai Mumm Ra.

I'm not really sure how this is gonna go.  Some folks have hope that it will continue, and others think it's DOA, period.  My fear is that even if SUPER7 pulls this off, a THUNDERCAT figure will jump in price to maybe 40+ bucks.  Let's face it: THUNDERCATS aren't as popular as MOTU, so smaller production runs are a fact.  Sadly, that may mean higher prices.

But at the same time....you have people over on the ORG who keep saying they are happy to pay up to 50 bucks for figures.

The .org is full of retarded children, and sissy boys who never grew the fuck up. They are the internet equivalent of a short bus full of sniveling window lickers too afraid to step off and face the beating that is deservedly awaiting them.

And Val Staples isn't the bus driver, he's the pimple coated ginger with the scoliosis brace, in biggest need of a colossal ass kicking.

Sad as it is, I struggle to have too much sympathy for people who continued to give Matty their money after all the evidence of how unwise that was.

Well if you're a DC fan, you have many outlets to spend your money.  If you're a Marvel fan, same deal.  If you're a MotU fan, not so much.  Unfortunately, the attitude most of them seem to have doesn't evoke much sympathy to begin with.

Granted, just because somebody says something on the internet, it doesn't mean it's true.  But you have people over there saying that they buy 2, 3, and often more Subs just to support the line.  I shit you not, one guy said he bought 20 Subs.  I WISH I had money to piss away like that!  

As for THUNDERCATS, I guess it's just wait-and-see.  I honestly think the price will dramatically go up, and that's if it even goes through.  It's entirely possible that it won't go through, and THUNDERCATS dies yet again.

I fear MOTUC prices will skyrocket, much less Thundercats.

If that's the case, which sadly makes sense, I'm done with both lines.  This bullshit of paying 40 bucks or more for a Goddamned 6" toy is not gonna work.

So, it looks like we're playing the Wait and See game.  Hell....it might take a year or more for the licensing to be straightened out.  And even if SUPER 7 is allowed to do T-CATS, I wouldn't be surprised to see the price jump 10 bucks or more.  Ugh.

I could be wrong, but it's hard to be optimistic at this point.  think.gif

Yeah, it must suck to then have to pay domestic shipping on top of that  Cheesy

Seriously though, I don't mind higher prices (though there is a limit) if the product is well done. Mythic Legions was one example. Beautifully executed figures with tons of cool and relevant accessories and reusable collector friendly packaging.

Even without shipping Matty figs were getting ridiculously expensive.  I share NCM's concerns.

Sorry FISH, I know overseas shipping is just fucking ridiculous. 

But I'm just saying for me personally, some of these figure prices are really getting out of hand.  Everybody has to have some kind of price ceiling.
