Being realistic...after what Mattel did last time, even if Mattel did announce they were going to continue Thundercats...it's not as though the vast majority of fans are going to willingly trust them again and throw money at them for their product. I think a fresh start with a new company is the best option all around. Sometimes starting over from scratch is the best way. Lots of companies have took over an out done the predecessor. Mattel WWE is vastly superior to the Jakks WWE figures. Hasbro's Lightning Collection Power Rangers are arguably the best Power Rangers figures ever made compared to Bandai's. DST Ghostbusters are amazing compared to Mattel's. NECA have out done McFarlane toys on pretty much every toy line like Predator, Robocop, Alien and numerous horror films. Hasbro's Marvel Legends are better than Toybiz's in every way, sculpt, proportion, paint and articulation. NECA have pretty much made the best TMNT ever compared to Playmates. I am more than confident that Hasbro, NECA, DST, Mezco or even Bandai could out do the Mattel 4 Horsemen Thundercats.
