    I'm probably in the minority, but I would love it the TC line used the same male buck as MOTUC.

    Mattel picks up ThunderCats 6 inch license

    Hey guys,

    News at SDCC is breaking that Mattel has acquired the ThunderCats license in the MOTU scale. It's preview night there so it's even possible we'll soon have pics of prototype figures. Toynewsi.com is reporting that they're spotted Lion-O and Vultureman.

    It's an exciting time to be a ThunderCats fan!

    Mattel producing thundercats figures is probably the greatest thing I've ever heard. I fully plan on buying 2-3 of every single thing produced for this line. I would actually buy a motuc sub this year regardless of the figures just so I can support Mattel. They have officially won me over entirely. Consider me 100% white knight from here on out.

    Nope we've never heard an "official" word from Mattel about getting the license, we have heard about Bandai getting the license however we all know their track record, they couldn't run a 500 foot dash let alone a toyline properly!!

    I am so excited for the Thundercats that I could almost cry. I've dreamed of a complete Thundercats Classics line for so long. I truly hope they get to do some of the characters that only featured in the cartoon ie Lunataks!

    Interesting! As bulky as the characters are in the vintage cartoon they'll fit in well with the MotU Classics buck!
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    Bitter sweet. Awesome for Thundercats fans. Horrible news for MOTU. A Thundercats sub will most definitely steal away MOTU subbers. Can't wait to get down to the exhibit hall to confirm.
    TOP WANTS:

    SONGSTER, LODAR, EVIL ROBOT, SAGITAR, HAWKE, UNCLE MONTORK & DREE-ELLE, TUVAR, BADDHRA, KARG

    I'd be happier if they put as much effort to the lines they DON'T own hook line and sinker like they do heman.

    It sounds awesome. I can't to see what it's like!

    I wonder though if this could backfire. People could decide to start collecting TC and drop MOTUC. If Mattel offers this in a sub model like MOTUC, it could cause some fans to pick between the two and actually cost MOTU some subscribers.

    HUGE news...People have been on this for YEARS! So happy if it's true! This is one of the FEW lines that would translate PERFECT into the 6" MOTU style buck made by Mattel/4H men. SWEET if true.

    Well, this is inevitable and was discussed even years ago that this would happen, but it's perfect timing to be honest. They need a meat and potatoes line with fresh blood. MOTUC WAS that for so long with all of the additions that Matty tried to keep as the toppings, but they all died off...Now we see it happening to MOTUC and things are on their last legs.

    In the HEIGHT of MOTU this would of been terrible to have both competing for dollars, but NOW, PERFECT.

    Who knows...they might not even have a 2016 MOTUC sub. lined up AND even if they did...look at the posts in the main forum...People ARE DONE at this point. I HIGHLY doubt ANY kind of full 2016 sub. would go through right now. Mini sub? sure..Could work, but not the full. Couldn't be happier. WE NEED this...and apparently so does Matty for any chance of that site surviving.

    I think that MOTU fans can look at this as a blessing more then a curse. They needed something new to keep things going and with this we'll still get the MOTU items, just probably not as many. Not by themselves though. MOTUC just doesn't have the legs to do it all by itself anymore.

    Very cool.

    I'm definitely a bigger fan of MOTU, but I could be tempted to add the "core" ThunderCats to my collection (e.g. Lion-O, Cheetara, Tygra and Panthro).

    I do echo other people's concerns about what a ThunderCats line would mean for the continued financial viability of MOTUC since Mattel would essentially be targeting the same, shrinking fan base.

    I wonder if Mattel will also do something more with the Voltron licence? Their Lion Voltron was somewhat impressive, although let down by the juvenile "action features". It might be nice to see a more affordable and "basic" Lion Voltron from Mattel.
