    I would also like to see how it would look. I'm ok with mine as is, but I'm sure it could look better with the brown sleeve.

    It looks neat, but the angle of the photo doesn't reveal that much. Am I right in saying it looks like she touched up the eyes and hair too?

    You're very right. :)

    Has anyone from Canada received their figures yet?

    Here's a much closer view of their faces. She did a really great job, but I prefer the current faces. I do however like the eye colour much better. A perfect match to the cartoon I'd say. And kit's hair looks cool too. Great job Celesta!

    Her custom paint looks vastly superior. :D I wonder why Mattel messed up Kit's nose and lip paint.

    They didnt actually. Look at the cartoon. Her nose was white.

    Strange. I must have just always assumed the nose was coloured. But after further studying the animation the nose is correct.
    I think the biggest problem s the unpainted lip. That is indeed a mistake and really spoils the look of the face.

    Has anybody else received their kittens? Looks like almost everybody got theirs.

    I got mine a while back. They look good! Just the fact that we might not see the rest blows my excitement out the door!

    We will get most of the main Thundercats at least. Lion-O and Panthro are guaranteed. I am sure most everyone that has the Bandai Classics Tygra will put him in their display. Pumyra will just have to stand in for Cheetara and I guess folks will just have to use their original Snarf. As for the bad guys, Mumm-Ra and Jackalman will be vastly outnumbered. Sucks to be them.

    I'm already posing mine with the Bandai lot. Don't forget we have the 6" Bandai Classic Mumm-Ra as well and the 8" Red Lion-O to make the gang look a bit "fuller". Either way, I still have some hope left for at least the main cast to show up down the line a-la-Super-7!

    Does anyone have the Icon Heroes Mumm-Ra? Just wondering if that would fit scale wise with the Mattel figures?

    I just compared the IH Mumm-Ra to the Bandai Lion-O figures and the LJN figure. The Bandai 8" looks too big and the 6" looks a little small. The original 7" LJN figure looks to be most in scale out of the three.

    Bend the 8" figures' knees when you pose them and put the kittens on their hoverboards with stands - they'll look like a perfect match :)
