I might be crazy, but I haven't given up hope yet.  I'm not exactly the most positive person, but I consider it a miracle that MATTEL agreed to share MOTU CLASSICS, which they invented and own.  I consider it a miracle that THUNDERCATS CLASSICS even exists after the failure of both the 8" and 6" lines.  Think about that!

Technically, who would have even thought there could be another MOTU line after the 2002 line died??  It's been going on 8 years now!

It may take a while, but I think THUNDERCATS CLASSICS can still pull through.  It probably won't last nearly as long as MOTUC, but I think there could be another 2 to 4 waves.

Super Power colored Supes, Bats, and Wondy can't even sell out at half-price.  They really didn't get the retail vs. collector idea with that line.

I was on the verge of ordering SP Superman.  Then I watched a review on YouTube and realized he's not the Carolina blue version we all wanted.  And had an older head sculpt to boot.  Ended up passing. 

If they wanted to end DCUC with Super Powers, there were a number of ways to go that would've put the exclamation point on the line.  Instead, they went for cheap, easy, and uninspired.  And it blew up on them.  Expect these for ten bucks at Ollie's soon.

I only bought one from China on eBay for like $14, which was still too much but not as bad as the ridiculous price Matty was asking.

I bet Degra is going crazy right now.

Two sets to keep mint, open set for home display, a set for the office, a set to play with in the car while at red lights, etc.

Does anybody here really want SUPER 7 to get the THUNDERCATS license, or do you just not care?

Just curious.  think.gif

I want someone that will create a cohesive, affordable Classic line to get it.  Super 7 may be too small to pull that off in the long run.  I love the figures the 4H did for Matty, but they're a bit bulky and wouldn't work well with a Thundertank.  Bandai's smaller scale figures of the new 'Cats worked well with their vehicles.  The figures were a bit simple though, as is Bandai's way.

If SUPER 7 gets the license, I think we could see a couple of decent waves.  But there's no way that THUNDERCATS could last several years.  I mean, sure....there's enough material, but I just don't see it happening.  I think it would last maybe 3 to 5 waves max.

THUNDERCATS simply aren't as popular as MOTU, and I don't see their fans being as rabid as HE-Fans.  But if SUPER 7 put the pedal to the medal, I think all the main characters would get done.

I have the 4" Bnadai line and all the vehicles and while they're fun, my heart is just in the 6-7" scale. I really do want Super-7 to pick-up and finish the line. At least one more sub of 4 figures plus the sub exclusive would be sweet. I just want the rest of the main players. Cheetara, Tygra, Grune, etc.

Yeah, if it goes through, I see no reason why we cannot get TYGRA, CHEETARA, SLYTHE, MONKIAN, VULTURE MAN, JAGA, LYNX O, and GRUNE.  Granted, I'm no THUNDERCATS expert, so I'm not 100% sure about the most popular characters.

As long as I get most of the main team members and villains from the first season, I'm good.  I don't care if they can't get around to making the robot bears or the Berserkers.  Grune the Destroyer would be cool, though.
