    One more reason why Thundercats wouldn't be cancelled or stopped, and they will be around for much time:thumbsup:

    Not really. The current roll out for the UK will carry on regardless of whether the line is over in the USA or not. The toys are manufactured way in advance of sale so we will still get wave 2 over here regardless. Now the amount of stock that makes it over here is whats questionable if production has suddenly stopped...

    Try Smyths toys. Currently 25% off, and buy one get one free on most of the range. Makes them about £3 each!!

    I got deluxe Mumm-Ra for £11 I think and got a free 8" Lion-o.

    Only problem is you can't order online from Smyths and there aren't any Smyths Toy shops anywhere near me :(

    I'm debating whether to order the Sword of Omens from Argos online... I have a £10 voucher I can only spend with them online. The toy is £14.99, but delivery charge is £5.95! :rolleyes: So it would make the sword £10.94 delivered... what do you guys think?

    Problem is, there really isn't anything else I need right now from Argos, so its the ideal opportunity to pick up a ThunderCats item :)

    If you want it go for it. Just think of half of the voucher covering the delivery costs. Oh, and argos have a toy sale on at the month which includes thundercats so u may even get it cheaper!

    £14.99 is the sale price ;) I'm also wary about buying toys from them incase they arrive in banged up package. I'd just buy a 4" figure, but knowing the case ratios, I'd likely end up with Mumm-Ra :D

    Just received these!! i got them in a special offer and wanted to share with you guys:thumbsup:

    I wonder why fans have dismissed the Deluxe Lion-O?? I had been reading the worst comments.Actually,he is such a cool figure and displays perfectly with the base.

    Comparing to the regular 4'', i'd definitely opt for this one, he has very few articulation points and since i am not getting them to play with!! but to have them displayed, this one is ideal. His stance with the sword upwards in great, and overall he creates a dynamic pose. To my consideration one of the best products of Bandai Thundercats.

    Wave 2 are starting to become available in the UK. I have just ordered wave 2 lion-o, panthro (10cm). Deluxe thunderclaw also available as well as wave 2 10cm mummra. Also to note they have released a new 10cm fig of cheetara. Think they have just downgraded paintwork as she is no longer glossy. Also available are the stylized single packs. The website I ordered from was very.co.uk but they also sell at woolworths & little woods. Can't wait for the others to become available :)

    mmm... where is Claudus? :( He should be available too, unless Bandai never included him the UK cases :mad:

    If we do not see Claudus released in this wave, then it could be a sure sign the UK is just getting leftovers from the US :(

    Wave 2 is surfacing in Ebay UK at some sellers. I'll probably wait a bit for their prices to drop and then purchase them!

    Bad News!

    Just phoned a specialist toy store in the UK & they said the UK will not be getting the new classic 6" lion-o or mummra.

    As soon as I found out I managed to grab the last 6" classic lion-o going on amazon uk. It must be an import as it set me back £24.99. These are going to be very hard to get hold of now :lionomad:

    I really couldn't care less for this awful Lion-O.''BADai'' is killing itself, they brought us an amazing, cartoon accurate, still modern take in their 8'' Classic line and instead of marching forward with this great line,they decided to go for the unacceptable 6'' Lion-O and Mamm-ra...
    So begone with it, it's better not releasing it to Europe

    Are there any official news about wave 2 in the UK/Europe? I see some figures on eBay (probably bought from the US) but not a single item from a big on-line store...

    @Lordore trust me, 6" Lion-O is pretty cool... in person! I didn't believe that I'd like it, but even the open mouth now looks somewhat fine to me. Mumm-Ra on he other hand could have been quite better.

    Also, none in Greece knows anything about the Bandai TC whatsoever. I contacted again Giochi Preziosi and AS Company and they had no idea when and if, while they both acknowledged the series.
