    Bandai might be bad, but Jazwares has them beat. I've had their 4" Street Fighter figures fall apart on me and break out of the package. Bandai's ThunderTank can't support the additional ThunderRacers weight -- and those vehicles were advertised and hyped that they work with the ThunderTank!

    As much as we complain about QC on MOTUC, there are much worse companies out there.

    I'm not into that lion-o head but when I own him I may change my mind.

    But I really wish they were in scale with each motuc and thunder cats.

    This is terrible. Not only are they not in scale with the MOTUC, they look awful.

    Liono looks like he has a degenerative hip condition, and the his upper body is literally held together with screws.

    I will definitely wait to see what the other characters look like before I decide to get any of these.

    That Liono head makes no sense. I have never seen him make a face like that. Can anyone post a screenshot of the cartoon close to that? My only guess is that they did that face to make little boys like Liono more, too bad he looks dumb.

    I just hope the 8 Inch Figures continue and Chetara and Panthro look as cool as the first 2, and don't cost twice as much.

    Whoah, crazy seeing the pics I posted over on the Fwoosh pop up here. That was a bit of a surprise. I totally feel why everyone is bummed about the scale difference between MOTU and the new Thundercats though, its sucks. But the Lion-O fig on its own is still a pretty rad figure.

    Those Thundercats figures are hideous! The screws are unforgivable.

    Thanks for this thread! After seeing the screws in the backs of the figures, I just cancelled my pre-order.

    Everyone knew Bandai would blow it, I'll save my cash for more He-Man figures.

    Wow this doesn't look good for Thundercats Classics. First their figures are to big compared to MOTUC and now they are to small. It's like they want this line to fail. What a shame, cause if they were in scale I surely woulf have added them to my collection. Now I can wait for TC in the 7'' scale, which will never happen.

    I personally love the look of the 6'' Thundercats, and feel they fit great with the anime inspired 200X line. Though I would have preferred the classics to stay 8'', I will simply invest less money into them.

    I just don't get all the griping about. Some of these posts belong on another website I discovered. Its called whitepeopleproblems.com.

    They are just toys.

    Some of us aren't "white people", Sky.

    A lack of torso articulation, screws in the back and non-painted joints effect everyone!

    Why would the MOTUC forum care about DCUC?

    Definitely not perfect, but I still like LION-O. I'm a fairly decent customizer, so painting the ankle pegs and screws will be a cake walk.

    Granted...I should not have to do that, but such is life.


    And technically, any MOCers shouldn't even by bothered by the back screws. ( just sayin' )

    Honestly I can live with the screws, not every figure is completely glued, I am used to seeing screws in Transformers, I mean even MOTU has visible pegs, granted they are color correct, but nonetheless still highly visibile...only now are they starting to really use pegless joints...and how many years has it been? Vikor was the first..I believe to have pegless boots, but arms and knees still have connectors showing...They are not highly visible silver screws, but is it really that big a deal...I mean really....almost everyone views they figures from the front..so is it such an issue that they're on their backs?...you're not being asked to pay a premium for these figures like MOTUC...so why worry about the screws?

    I don't like the new Lion-O face, and the figures seem to look a little cheaper, and more plastic than MOTUC, but depending on what the others look like, and if they issue a new Lion-O with a regular face, I could be persuaded to buy a few...screws and all, I mean the regular 6" 2011 line has them...and no one said that the new 6" Classic line was Adult Collector only, like MOTUC are.

    I don't mind the visible screws on Transformers either, but it's more acceptable on those since they are robots, and they have far more moving parts.

    Other toy companies make super articulated figures without any need for screws to hold them together. Look at Hasbro's 4-inch figure lines like Star Wars & G.I. Joe. Bandai should be capable of doing the same.

    They should, and can...the 8" don't have screws on their backs...so I don't know why they do it for the smaller scales....I know others don't have screws, but they have some sort of pegs or something besides glue holding them together is my point...no they shouldn't have went with this approach, but no one seemed to mind the 2011 6" figures having them...only now that Bandai scaled back the Classic line to 6" people are just picking them apart, granted I don't defend the use of screws, but it's not really an issue on a non Collectors grade kids toy, that an adult collector might pick up. Now if MOTUC started using screws, then by all means pick them apart all you want, as that is not acceptable for a $20+ Collector grade, collector funded toyline, which Thundercats is not.

    This puts thing in perspective... I'm glad that despite the DR/Matty screw ups, the figures are still kick ass...
    Are those the 6" or the 8" figures? Seriously, ***!?!

    I bought the 8" figures, I will continue to buy those if they keep making them. These new 6" ones look pretty terrible.

    All I know is if the 8" figures become more expensive because they are "exclusive," then I don't feel they'll be worth it...
    Yeah, I take that as "We'll certainly be releasing the 8" figures whose tooling we already paid for!"

    I imagine Cheetarah would have been up next with an entirely new sculpt that may need to earn back its investment. I can already see 7 exclusive variants, including a muddy SDCC 2012 version!

    I don't know if this is the first, but the line that gave birth to Marvel Legends and helped set the current standard in 6" figure articulation was Spider-Man Classics back in 2001. I wonder if that led to everyone labeling their ideal modern figures of iconic characters "Classics." Never really realized so many lines used it until now.

    Screw holes...not so good. I read somewhere that they were going to address stuff like the black plastic pegs you see on all of the modern design Lion-O's joints next year. Screws seem like a similar distracting visual to me. I think Bandai's doing a lot of nice stuff with Thundercats, but you end up with all of these little reminders that this is a company that's largely known for producing toys of robots.

    If I had just one Thundercat, I'd be fine with my 8" Lion-O since he's pretty close to excellent. Moving to 6" so that a larger line is more manageable and the figures can mesh with the 2011 design figures makes sense. It still stinks that I've got a Tygra that will be retired and my new Lion-O will be constantly screaming his face off. Those screws in his back must really hurt.

    Yelling Lion-O and Mumm-Ra are the new 6" Classic figures...with screws.

    I actually saw them..mind you the first ever TC toys in a store around me in a local Target yesterday, and while I didn't like the head, and they looked a little more plastic, than the 8" they really were not all that bad...not like horrible...but they are less of a figure than the 8" were to be.

    I don't have him in hand yet, but just looking at pictures I can say I feel he's too skinny, I don't like the open-mouth head, and his joints are still unpainted. ARGH! *shakes fist at Bandai*
    Pretty much all this Dan- I pity the poor 6" Lion-O that would try to tangle with Mosquitor!
