    I collect a lot of different toys, so some collections are smaller than others. I'm pretty happy with it, just need Mumm-Ra's Accessories. Evebtually I'd like to have Mummy Mumm-Ra, Hammerhand, Snowman, and Panthor. Oh, and a Jackalman, just to ride the nosediver. Why does everyone hate Tuska Warrior? He's one of my favorites!

    no collection is crappy as long as you enjoy it. I like how you got snarf on top going surfing 8)

    Every one hates tuska cause hes lame. I would have rather seen the unicorn keepers or quick pick or M.U.L.E as a figure instead

    Oh? Everyone hates the Tuskas because they're "lame"? I don't think they're lame at all and I like their leader Turmagar. Call me lame if you wish for liking them, but I do.:bengali:

    Hi Kyle, I'm sure your Thundercats collection will grow! When I started mine I was just going for some figures but I got all the good and all the evil main characters! Yes, it's very addictive! It even made me complete other collections! :)

    Take care and you can post the rest of your toy collection here:

    Yeah, you're probably right. Just like everything else I collect. "I'm only going to get a few..."

    It wasnt directed at anyone its just that a lot of collectors find Tuska so...ordinary? I think its because he is so common and its not as character accurate as some of the other figures

    I may be wrong, but I don't actually think Matt was calling the Tuska characters "lame", but more referring to the figure itself - I don't really have a strong opinion about the Tuska Warrior figure, I think his design is cool, but the character itself is rather generic, kind-of like a Star Wars Stormtrooper type character, so I can see where its detractors are coming from. Now, a figure of Turmagar himself, whilst you could argue that it wouldn't really be in-character to give him a weapon and a battlematic action, would have been cool, and I think more popular with some, because the character was actually given more development in the course of the series. :)

    Take care... :)

    My getting less crappy collection

    Just like everything else, this collection is growing. I still want a Snowman and Panthro. And a mummy Mumm-Ra. I'm going to get a weapon-less Panthro for now to drive the Thundertank. Check out my retro-fitted treads! I'm gonna need a bigger shelf, too!

    Here's some cool TC stuff a friend gave me. I remember the sticker book from when I was a kid, but nothing else.

    I was the exact opposite, Tuska was one of the few figures I never has as a kid. That being said he is one of my favorites as well. Oh is that the weapon from Krull in the background?

    Krull rules!!!!!! One of my favorite movies from the 80's

    Is it Krull? I never made the connection until I posted these pics. On 3 different boards someone has said that. I thought it was just a generic weapon!!!! I hope they didn't make Krull action figures, I'm out of room! I don't even remember the movie much, just the video game.

    Updated collection pix. Nowhere near as impressive as most, but good enough for me. I just got a Ma-Mutt on card with a crappy bubble )who immediately was removed) that didn't make it in the pix. You can see the rest of my collections here: http://kylestoybox.freeforums.org/
