Got them tonight. I'm really happy with them. Glad I went all in. Besides the kids and Pumyra just kind of being OK, the rest are awesome. Didn't realize they had ML style ankles too. I'm realizing how little I actually know about ThunderCats. I need to watch some episodes to refresh my memory/learn for the first time.

I'm glad you like 'em, BW.  They're very well done.  I only wanted LION-O and PANTHRO, but I think they're all fantastic.

I'm optimistic someone other than S7 can continue, or at least start over with the license.

I agree with you about another company.  From what I heard, WB ended things after S7 lowballed them.  Giving S7 a second chance tells me that somebody really wants to continue the 'CATS, and I figure that if S7 can't do it, they'll just move on to another company.

I often wonder about these kind of decisions. Isn't some money better than no money?

I know absolutely none of the details between WB and S7, but I find it a little funny that WB approached them a second time.  I mean....what changed?  Where there no other companies they could go to?  Or maybe they did, and they weren't happy with any of the results.

Never the less, I hope S7 or somebody can make about a dozen more CATS.  But then again, can S7 match MATTEL's quality?

Not when you think the license is going to be so mishandled that it hurts future chances at money via a new film or another company at a later date.  What's odd here is you can get Thundercats in 13" scale, Dorbz, Pops, and Vynl - but not good ol' action figures.

Perhaps they don't want the Orgers to attach themselves to the property.  Too late skippy.  slapfight.gif

I just saw that. 

It's probably better that they do something rather  than S7.

Looks like they were showing off the unused prototypes, probably to gauge interest in a resurgence.  I would love it if Mattel finished off the main group somehow.

I always wanted JAGA and GRUNE.  I hope these happen, but I'm not gonna hold my breath.  There are too many "if's" and "maybe's".

Have you guys read the short article about these over on TOYNEWSI.com?  The guy raises a lot of good points.  I hope this happens, but I'm afraid of them being 50 bucks a piece, or only being available in big multi-packs that are over a hundred.

A Mattel rep saying the burden is on the collectors is exactly the wrong way to go about this.  I get that it's probably a low-level employee hoping to drum up interest to get his bosses to pull the trigger, but blaming fans never wins them.
