Got my Thunderkitten set yesterday.  Now I'm really upset about the situation.  These are excellent figures.  I really hope they work out a deal and complete the core team, and the top four bad guys left.

I don't think Super 7 has quite the resources or legal team that Mattel has.  But I do hope more TC's get made.

Got mine yesterday as well.  Haven't opened the box yet, but they look great!

Agreed.  It's an incredible start to what could be a very nice little line.  At this point, I don't think the Realists are even thinking of 2nd and 3rd string characters....they just want the A-Listers done.

If this is really gonna happen, I would still like JAGA and GRUNE, but I'm not holding my breath.

Granted, if each figure costs 45 bucks, that's going to suck donkey ass.  Thumbs Down

I think every MOTU figure has been delayed this year so this isn't a big surprise.

I guess it's better than cancelling and sending us our money back.

I'm disappointed we're getting night stalker instead of Stridor,wonder why he wasn't chosen first?

Hasbro's been doing something similar with Transformers lately.  If you know you're going to re-paint, release the less desirable one first, so people are more likely to buy both.

I suppose if MOTU and Thundercats are both on their way out....and Matty has quit....then that's the end of anything niche from Mattel.

Not all that surprising.  They're not really set up  to do that.  Hasbro doesn't do much of it either.  It's too bad though.  Although I really had no dog in the fight, it's pretty obvious that for the right property, there is a market.  It's finding the right niche with a rabid, loyal fan base that's the problem. 

My consolation is that anything Mattel does with the DC license now has to be retail.  Unless it's a convention exclusive.  And in the event that it is something I want, I'm already prepared to pay through the nose for it.  To a point.

So, I got charged by Matty and the Thundercats is the only sub I have.  Does this mean that the first figure is on it's way, or soon will be?  I haven't gotten any email from them.

LION-O is supposed to ship in late September.

I agree, GARD.  There really is a niche market out there for lots of stuff, but I hate how smaller lines cost more to produce.  I understand why, but it's annoying.  I suppose a cutback on articulation might help, but people may not care for that.

I got two emails, each saying I was charged for Sunder and the horse.  I shouldn't get Lion-O until they all ship in December in the bundle.  We'll see what really happens.
