    Ok, got mine yesterday, and they both look fantastic. I only wish Pumyra had been a little shorter. She seems out of scale with everyone else.

    Yeah I saw that and it's very disappointing :( Same thing happened with the MOTUC Glimmer. What is really annoying about it is there are already tooled female parts that SHOULD have been used instead to keep Pumyra in scale :/ Queen Angella is shorter than Glimmer so that crotch piece and legs should have been used.

    They might've been going for that whole "combining the old show with the new show" thing again since in the reboot Pumyra was taller than Lion-O.

    In the 2011 series Lion-O was slightly taller than Pumyra. The Mattel figures height difference reminds me of Leo and Panthera.

    I'm probably in the minority here, but I think Pumyra is bloody brilliant! She's a gorgeous figure and I'm thrilled we got her. I was looking forward to her the most and I'm very happy that she got made. I'm not too worried about her length because scale wise she still fits in perfectly with the rest of the figures. Mumm-Ra is a great looking figure too. I prefer the closed cape though. His staff is excellent. The Totem of Dera is a nice little addition.

    Maybe that was who I was thinking of.

    Yea I remember Panthera being quite tall too. Then again, she looked like she didn't belong in the TC world - but that's a comment for another thread. I still love my Pumyra though. She must have had some of that water from Treebeard's fountain....

    I'm just waiting on a Pumyra and Mumm-Ra now that was sent in the same parcel as my MOTUC November items. Oddly my December items showed up earlier this week!
    I'm guessing the delay is more than likely down to a customs fee having been slapped on the parcel.

    Well Pumyra is now a year old and even though she is a tad tall, I still adore her, and next to the kittens she's my favourite of the lot. I have however been wondering why on earth she is so tall, when the prototype wasn't? I think I may have the answer and it can be either or:
    The pegs that stem from her "pelvic frame" if I can put it like that are too low (or too long). If they were up higher, the legs would've been at least 70mm shorter. It could also be that the crotch part was too thick and hence the legs could not go up as high. I'm referring to the thick crotch portion on the new wave 1 of S7's MOTUC figs. That might have been the reason the pegs were so low to still keep the frame of her hips.
    The other thing I have realized is that even though her actual legs are the same length as the other MOTUC females, that they could have made the top half slightly shorter. At this point in time she looks like a supermodel with extra long legs sticking out of her skirt. If it had been shortened somewhat, she would have been the right height.
    So that got me thinking - is it possible to maybe shorten her legs beneath her skirt? It's not like anybody will see it. Then she could be the right height. Has anybody thought about this?

    Sadly all the female characters made on the MOTUC buck body are too tall compared tot he male characters.
    A more experience customizer could probably give better advice on how to try and fix the legs.
    All I could suggest would be to remove the legs and cut some off the top of the thigh and drill some new holes for the hip pegs.

    Finally have the Mattel Pumyra.. Hope I can still get the other 3 Mattel releases I don't have (Panthro, Mumm-Ra and the Wilykittens) before Super7 stuff comes in and drain my funds.

    Thanks, I hope so. There are some differences to the Matty one and S7 reissues to warrant owning both IMHO.

    Same as I did in MOTUC CG, i have all the Matty CG ones together with the S7 CG waves (except for Power Con exclusives which is so difficult to find for us outside the USA ).

    Hope in this Thundercats line I can do the same, optimistic since wave 3 was announced and i guess by wave 4 it will almost cover the main heroes and villains (glad I'm not too attached with the Lunataks).

    I own the Mattel ones and preordered the S7 ones. I have been thinking of maybe retiring some of the duplicates in my display but some of the differences actually make it worthy of creating “other” characters in my display. I’ll use the growling face of Lion-O for my evil Mumm-Ra / Lion-O in disguise, the Panthro will be my Spitting Image version, Mumm-Ra I will have hanging out with my S7 Ultimates Skeletor from CG in the upcoming Snake Mountain set, (they’ll be plotting inside at the throne room) while I guess Jackalman can join him. So I definitely have use for both versions in my display.
    Hope you get those PowerCon figs. They’re beautiful indeed.
