I definitely wouldn't have wanted to see two Mumm-Ras in year one. I like the way they did it because we have never gotten a great mummy Mumm-Ra. The ever living one keeps something to look forward to. If you want a long-lived line, the best way forward is to space some of the popularity out. It keeps interest and really builds hype. This has worked wonders for Masterpiece TransFormers and MOTU. To answer the question of why Tygra and Ever Living Mumm-Ra aren't more popular, it's very simple - we have figures of them. Even if it is from BanDai, that itch has been scratched at least a little bit. While we have nothing for Cheetara, etc. I know this lessons my anticipation for Tygra and Mumm-Ra, since they will simply be another version rather than the first time being realized. And I really love what BanDai did with both of them, minus Mumm-Ra's lack of accessories and cape. I am curious though - no votes for Lynx-O? He's my favorite of the 3 later Thundercats. I would also like to guess that we won't see Bengali and Tygra in the same year.
