classic lion-0 looks great but i wish he was 6in and not 8in :sksad:
That new figure is AMAZING.
If Classic Lion-O is that badazz then I canít wait to see Mumm-Ra!
Even though they are not to scale Iíd use Classics Lion-O as Claudius, Lion-Oís father, in my playtime flashbacks.
Iím dying for NYTF and for a spy video of new toon footage.
That Lion-O is awesome. Too bad they only have two 8’’ classics figures coming out initially. I’d probably be buying waves if they had ‘em. Really looking forward to seeing Mumm-Ra, as well as price points, and when we can expect to see these guys on shelves.
I mostly like it, but it does look a bit too bright. His skin and hair colour seem way off, for example. It could just be an effect of the image, though, as its no doubt been tweaked a little in Photoshop. Iíll wait until I see pictures from Toy Fair, under normal lighting.
yup. I will definitely be buying this. I want to buy that sweet MEZCO 20" version. I love me some Thundercats!
I like the cheetara but it looks like you can twist her leg at the thigh. That particular articulation makes no sense to me
Osbert looks like something from icanhascheezburger.com
And it only kind of fixes the issue, she will still have a wider sitting area, but her legs won't splay out as much.
Oh yeah, totally getting these classic figures.
That pic with He-Man makes me sad. I wish Lion-O was going to be that size. :sksad:
I could however see an issue with if it was three and five inches though.
I kind of like that the 'Cats are larger. Because the body type is more lithe it kind of makes sense... almost like the difference between humans and Na'Vii in Avatar. It makes them seem more alien.
For me it would be disappointing to put these new classics alongside the the vintage figures if they were shorter.
Its the exact same as MOTUC, they are bigger than their vintage not shorter.
What sold me on MOTUC was holding He-Man and thinking they finally got it right, a smaller than original Thundercat figure will not make me feel that way.
I don't think people are necessarily "forgetting" anything. I think they have a personal preference. I understand your rational but alot of people like their figures to or wish their figures fit in together better. I understand why they are the way they are but I've always wanted to have motu and tcats figures that were in the same scale. So im personally disappointed by that aspect. I've heard a lot of fans talk about wanting the two lines to fit in together and be in scale.
I think there is definitely an argument to be made that you can sell more figures if you put it in the same scale as other popular lines that have a similar audience. This was brought up in regards to DCUC and MOTUC when the MOTUC first started. I for one would have started collecting DCUC had MOTUC been in scale with it for example and others have mentioned this as well. Mattel could have made more money maybe. Now I will concede that I have ended up really enjoying how chunky the MOTUC figures are but i'm still disappointed they are out of scale with DCUC figures... especially Superman and Hawkman.
I mean the MOTUC line is a good example. Its retro inspired yes, but obviously not at the same scale as the original.
I care less about the fact that theses guys will be completely out of scale with my dcu figs...motu and tcats are more linked to me. Its not even that I expected them to be....just wish they were.
Again I think its totally valid that you want big figures... but other fans always wished for smaller figures that fit in with their motu toys. Its just a matter of preference. Obviously both can't be pleased, I'm happy for those that like that its in this scale... but I'm personally disappointed. I don't think its going to be a deal breaker this time though just because that figure looks AWESOME! Me Want!
I could fudge the scale between Lion-O and MOTUC as long as he doesn't look like Gygor next to them.
Now here's to hoping the 8" classic collector line will last and gives us at the very least all of the previously released vintage figures and then some. I'd love to see the Warrior Maidens, Mandora the Evil Chaser and Claudius along with a lot more villains!!!
It would have been nice to have all figures in the same scale like 6". I don't mind the larger scale on the ThunderCats anymore. MOTUC are taller and muscular than most figures, and the ThunderCats are even taller now but slimmer. Just keep in mind that Lion-O is at least a head taller than the other cats which means they would most likely be the same height as MOTUC figures, so it shouldn't matter that much imo.
The way I see it;
Eternians are all equally muscular and tall. A lot more than Earthlings (unless Earthlings live for over 10 years on Eternia, then they will grow taller as well *Marlena*). This is because of the gravity, the suns and the center of the Universe. ThunderCats are just a taller race of Cats from Thundera and the Mutants grow taller on Plundar. Both races have a standard/slim bodymass unlike a muscular body from the people of Eternia.
