    Well, I actually ended up cancelling my preorder. Not necessarily because of the apparent deficiencies in the figures, but actually because of the William Stout Collection... Those figures really highlighted to me what can be done in this form factor and at this price point. The sculpts, the paint... Comparing them side-by-side to my MOTUC and CG figures just really highlighted how simplistic these figures really are. Just a whole lot of "blank" canvas, really. Doesn't seem like great value for the money somehow. So while I like the TC property, I actually decided to switch to Mythic Legions. This line seems like such a lot of fun - great execution and so much potential overall for building a collection.

    But I am super-curious to see how the new wave of Super7 figures will turn out. The WSC hopefully marks a turning point for quality...

    What I want the most:
    - Cheetara
    - Slithe
    - Monkian
    - Alluro

    What I think we'll get:
    - Jaga (because he's already been revealed)
    - Monkian, Vultureman, or Rataro (holding back Slithe for a future wave)
    - Bengali or Lynx-o
    - Hammerhand (marking the beginning of the Berzerkers in the line, although I'd personally prefer the Lunataks first)

    I think all waves will have an oversize figure, maybe the next wave is Slithe or the kittens 2-pack and if they keep the same logic 2 heroes and 2 villains.

    I say do Cheetara in the last wave. Let Super7 get other female figures out and do all the QC and fine tooling they need so that by the time Cheetara is due, she'll have zero production problems =)

    Yeah, I agree with Jaga. I completely forgot that he was supposed to be a part of Mattel's line... and since Grune is in wave 2, I think it makes most sense to put Jaga in wave 3.

    I don't think that we will see Bengali so soon after Tygra though. I would love to see Lynx-O! Plus, Vultureman or Ratar-O would be awesome!! (Both are some of my favorite toys when I was younger.)

    Personally, I would prefer the Berzerkers over the Lunataks... I never really had an affinity for them. But Hammerhand? Top Spinner? Ram Bam? Cruncher? I LOVED those guys as a kid! (I wonder if Super 7 will make them based on their original figures, or the cartoon... they were so drastically different from one another...)

    I think that Hammerhand could actually count as an oversized figure. Especially if they give him a monstrous mechanical arm/hand!

    I’m guessing for wave 3:

    The kittens 2 pack, since we saw Wiley Kat in the Super7 video with Pumyra
    Hachiman, I think Cheetara and Java will lead the later waves either 4 or 5
    Slithe, next big name villain with Monkian, Vultreman, Ratar-O with the next three waves
    Hammerhand with the Berserkers coming out in each next wave

    With the limited runs (characters) of Thundercats in the past few years, if/when they actually produce stuff like Slithe, Hammerhand, Driller, Cruncher...I think people will lose their minds. its going to be great.

    ....AND, WHAT IF they make a Tongue-A-Saurus!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm actually hoping they only trickle out the mainstays. I'm cherry-picking, so the longer it takes to get to Cheetara, Monkian, Slithe, or Vulture Man, the more money I can save over time.

    Just for fun, a couple of aesthetic improvements on Mumm-Ra, to make it more proportionate and accurate to the Tsuguyuki Kubo's design.
    I think his arms and shoulders are too thin and the torso should be similar to work they did in Grune as I mentioned earlier.

    Just out of curiosity. Do you post these suggestions anywhere else or just here?

    In some other forums too. Another reason more than curiosity?

    Just wonder what the potential impact is of all of us brainstorming and such if it's basically confined to here. My personal involvement with anything message board related is essentially just here, and even with that, I can often go a week without even logging in. So admittedly, I'm not exactly doing much to spread any sort of word....

    You obviously put more time into it then most with the diagrams and such so it would be a shame if it were not seen elsewhere in hopes that S7 actually sees these things. Now while I personally don't think that it's necessarily to change everything under the sun and I think that most things are fine, there's a few that I wouldn't mind seeing addressed.

    I won't go into those again as I've already posted them within this thread, but was just wondering I suppose how many of these concerns were being shared aside from this thread.

    I’d like a Mongor and Safari Joe. I know they aren’t as popular as other characters but I remain hopeful.

    I'd like to get them eventually. I'd like to complete the whole vintage LJN run like in MOTUC we completed the vintage figures.
    Personally I'd like to complete the core Thundercats and mutants, then go on to the rest of the LJN figures, and only then go on to previously unmade characters. Its important to CLassicize some of the LJN figures that were action feature heavy though.

    I hear what you're saying. IF the line has any risk of ending prematurely (due to lack of sales or a licensing issue), I want Super7 to focus heavy on getting the core, A-list characters done. The LAST thing ThunderCats needs is yet another toyline with missing ThunderCats or Mutants. HOWEVER, the only way we're going to get some of those more obscure, never-done-before characters is if they're offered alongside A-listers. If Super7 waits until all the heavy hitters are already done before offering the likes of Alluro or Willa, we'll never get them. Sales will plummet with no A-listers left and the line will end.

    It's a tightrope walk. I hope Super7 has a solid roadmap already laid out.

    Both of them would make AWESOME figures in the Four Horsemen's hands. And I think they have a strong chance of getting made since they were in the LJN line.

    I would totally be down for a Mandora with her Electro-Charger as an oversized offering.

    I also would love to get Willa and Nayda... maybe even in a two-pack!

    I would LOVE those a Willa & Nayda two pack and Mandora with her bike. I really hope they end up releasing those characters in exactly that way.
