    So apparently they're going to be showing these bad boys off at SDCC this weekend. Lion-O and Vultureman have been spotted so far, but I haven't found pics yet.

    Can you imagine if Mattel and Warner Bros. ever collaborated on a "Masters of the Universe/ThunderCats" crossover line? :liono

    I am so excited about this! I have collected the MOTU line from Mattel since the beginning, and as it winds down, this is the perfect line to start up! Thundercats has always been my first love, with MOTU following it, so it will be amazing to have the two in a similar scale and perhaps style. That being said, I really, really hope the Horsemen nail this! I am almost always floored by the work they do, but there have been a few face sculpts (Frosta!) and paint choices, etc that I have been a bit disappointed with. In Thundercats…I must have perfection! They are too awesome to not be done absolutely right! I have faith though. Can't wait to see some pics.

    30th Anniversary of ThunderCats is shaping up so well :).

    Do you guys think this will be sold in stores or exclusive to MattyCollector.com?

    I think they should be sold in stores, considering these are in VERY high demand from the original fans and this is a great way to test the retail market again for the cats.

    Either way I'm excited!

    I'm gonna bet they'll be MattyCollector.com exclusives.

    I am so pleased with this news. As much as I have mixed feelings about Mattel, I can't argue that overall they did a good job with MOTUC and if they can do the same with Thundercats I will be more than happy.
    Keeping them to just Matty Collector is a better way to do things as if they were at retail and didn't sell then the line would probably end up getting cancelled before completing the main cast.
    I hope we get some different body variations instead of the standard MOTUC buck for all the figures.
    I will definitely buy them. :thumbsup:

    Sources claim it's going to be a continuation to the ending MOTUC line.

    Instead of MOTUC 2016, subscribers will get TCC!

    Cannot verify myself so it's not final, just friends who are working at SDCC. :rolleyes:

    I highly doubt it will be a continuation of a different brand. You cant have a MOTU subscription and end up with ThunderCats, right? MOTUC will most likely be "Rebranded" in 2016, it's not clear how yet. ThunderCats will probably have the same subscription model, but it's a new line altogether. But like you said, we'll have to wait for the Mattypalooza Panel.

    I am super excited about this but starting to wonder if it a subscription model how much it might be. Hopefully I can fit it into my budget because I would be thrilled to buy all of them!

    I wonder if the value goes up for Bandai Thundercats now that we have new figures from Mattel?

    These should be sold in stores along with the option to buy through Mattycollector.com

    I was actually wondering the opposite. If with fans allocating money towards Mattel Thundercats would drive the demand/price down on the Bandai line? I will still be attempting to buy all the Bandai Thundercats variations I can afford either way!

    :D

    The Bandai figures aren't very expensive right now anyway. I literally bought all the 6" figures, including Tygra, for $5 each.

    Tygra for $5???? Lucky you!!

    Super psyched about Thundercats from Matty! Seriously this is perfect timing for me... I hope the 2001 designs are made alongside the Classic designs, just like MOTU! :thumbsup::thumbsup:
