A big announcement came at Comic Con that Mattel has acquired the rights to produce new figures of Thundercats!

They will be based on the classic 80's cartoon and it seems they will be sculpted by the Four Horsemen -the talented guys behind the Masters of the Universe Classics figures.

On that note they will be done in the same scale, and with much of the same style buck and articulation of the MOTUC -so if you always wanted to have a crossover you wont' be hindered by size difference.

The line will begin in July of 2016 with a figure a month. The first figure will be LION-O followed by JACKALMAN in August. There will be a subscription exclusive figure of MUMM-RA in his mummy "decayed form"

They had painted prototypes of Lion-O and Jackalman on display but only a pic of the unpainted Mumm-ra during the panel reveal.

The line will be offered online though Mattycollector.com and will have a subscription service available. The sub's not yet up for sale but I'll be sure to post here when it is.

They look beautiful and will compliment the He-Man figures for when you want to have your inter-dimensional battles! Smile

Small update:

The subscription for this line will go on sale sometime in early 2016 so you've got a while to wait. Mattel has said though the full year's lineup will be revealed and it will include a good mix of heroes, villains, and allies.

I like the sound of that; including allies. While this undoubtedly means we won't get all of the cats themselves right away it also means we should get guys like say Hatchiman sooner.

Personally I'm hoping they give us some never released characters too like Willa and Manadlora! (It was mentioned they hope to get the Lunatacs out)
