    Our friends over at Bandai sent us the following press release! We should expect the new ThunderCats toys at US retail very soon!

    This thread is going to explode

    What fantastic news about them now in stores

    Just wish that they will hurry up and get them in stores in the uk-I will have to get them off eBay now and pay the shipping fees-looks like I will have the USA and uk figures-o well

    What a day!!!

    It looks like the new figures are popping up all ready. I'm loving the packaging on the classic 8 inch figure. Soo good that you can see the figures.

    What a 24 hours we have coming up

    I'll check the TRU inventories tomorrow.. But I highly doubt they've hit retail shelves yet. Just last week TRU made their order to Bandai. =/

    I tried ordering from Kmart a few days ago, twice. Both times came back as out of stock order canceled in an email after check out was completed.

    An word on what Amazon is going to sell themselves? They've gotten the roleplay stuff and the 4" line, but the 6" and 8" Classics right now are limited to their 3rd party sellers. I'd like to be able to order right from them since we have Prime.

    From bbts when I try to buy a t.cats figure

    PLEASE NOTE: This item is only available to ship to addresses in the USA and Canada. Bandai America requires that this item ships only to North America. Orders & Preorders with shipping addresses outside the USA & Canada will be cancelled; we apologize for the inconvenience.


    This is a shame as it will have to be eBay if any people want to buy them who don't live in the USA.

    I received the Thundertank from Amazon today. Claws flip out from the paws, which I hadn't noticed before. SNARF now has black pupils instead of the solid green eyes. I like the light up eyes, but the generic voice actor and engine sounds are meh. The back storage hatch can be opened with the figures magnet, which is kinda a neat feature.


    Here is an image.

    Looks like Santa came to see you today! I am getting jealous with everyone getting toys already.

    Although I would have them open and playing with them as the show aired tonight, gotta keep them in the packaging this time (well, I will probably with 2 of everything)

    I'm honestly considering going on a toy run today. But I haven't done that since wave 7 of DCUC came out. It's just such a burden on gas money. I don't really think stores stock new waves on Sundays either. Oh well. I can wait till Friday I suppose.

    I got mine a few days ago and think they're fantastic! One of the reasons I gravitated toward the 4" line was that I could grab the whole team together in one shot. They looked great packaged, each with they're own artwork on it.
