    I would like to add, that if possible, I'd like the separate skin tones to be less sharp. The transition to light and dark was always more subtle in the cartoon.

    I'm not sure how feasible that is at this scale though.

    As Wilycub did justice to Lion-O's face and Claw Shield (and even corrected the upside-down ThunderCat emblem on the Sword of Omens), you, Booshman, have done justice to Lion-O's skin tone. :)

    I think that they have to modify the face of the prototype, especially the eyebrows.I like with the modified eyebrows

    I agree with you.

    This is perfect! Why can't these big companies do this?

    I know, right? We all want our "ThunderCats" characters to be as show-accurate as possible.

    I just noticed this, but what about the silver trim on the belt and boots. In the cartoon and vintage toy it was white, so why are they silver now?

    Is there any chance the edited picture could make them white to see what it would look like?

    I like what I've seen so far. I have high hopes for the line, and hope it doesn't suffer from the all too common cost cutting Mattel tends to favor. Very anxious to see how Cheetara is executed.

    Thanks Boosham. I think I prefer the white. What do you guys think looks best?

    If the proper release came out like the last picture I'd be very happy.

    I have a question about the subs. They say you can't cancel subs. This means that you have to stay on the sub until all figures have been made?

    For that year, once you pay, you're in. You don't have to buy anything else after that.

    I t is just for the one year. Also as far as I know from friends that subscribed to the MOTUC sub, they do not charge you at once for all figures but just take the price of the figure + shipping as it is released.

    Okay thanks guys. This means that every year we need to subscribe again. I need to start to change my budget to include this.

    After seeing the price for Castle Grayskull be thankful there isn't a Cats Lair coming out this year LOL.

    You're the man, Booshman!

    Playsets are included in the sub? That really scares me actually. I'd hate to budget for a figure and then get charged 5 or 6 times as much just because a playset comes out that month.

    The castle was NOT part of the MOTUC sub. It was a separate preorder.
