    Hachiman does look incredible. A definite purchase for me.

    Iím waffling on Hachiman. I told myself I was only doing Cats and Mutants, and so far Iíve stuck to that. But man, heís cool.

    Wily-Kit looks great too. Much bigger than the Mattel version perhaps? Though, I'm not a fan of her winking head... it should have been an open-mouth battle head.

    Shiner is one of those figures that I had as a kid, so he holds some nostalgic value for me... plus, his crossed arms look cool.

    Alluro... meh. (I'm sorry... the Lunataks unfairly get all of my TC anger because I blame them for the downfall of the cartoon series. I just never liked them.)
    I mean, there are almost as many episodes after the Lunataks debut as before and the show was renewed twice after they debuted.

    I think Thundercats did pretty well. Silverhawks didn't even make enough of an impact for people to remember the first season roster additions and I doubt most people remember any of the Tiger Sharks villains.

    Well I ordered Ratar-O because I believe he worked with the MutantsÖ and Hachiman could fit with an independent villains display. If there are any others

    To be sure.

    For me personally, the show took a steep dive after the Lunataks were introduced... and, apparently, they weren't too well-received because they ended up bringing Mumm-Ra back as the main villain.

    He starts off as a villain... only because Mumm-Ra tricks him.

    Eventually, he becomes (and remains) a good guy.

    Exactly! And I think thatís kind of a common thing in Thundercats, isnít it? Thereís a misunderstanding but the guy we thought was bad ended up as a friendÖ.isnít that how the Snowman and Mandora episodes went? You could do a little display just with this idea.

    So Iíve been looking at Thundertank reviews and it seems like thereís a trendÖ small reviewers who just like toys and like to show videos of them for their 1,000 or so subscribers love it. Bigger ďYouTubersĒ seem to think there are major problems with it. Seems like a case of people compromised by the YouTube algorithm and either exaggerating or casting honesty aside to drive engagement.

    The usual suspects on YouTube LOVE the tank. They got that free sample itch. But honestly if people enjoy the tank; Iím happy for them. Itís big and itís bulky and fun.

    Thereís just too much wrong and laziness behind what went into it for me to appreciate it.

    Brian was warned several times the hatch had a fan logo. He didnít change it. He was warned when raising the height of the rear to adjust to back treads to be elevated above the front claw. Nadda. The lines on the tank are nothing like animation. Nothin. The final even has a ton of holes in the front face to hold the canopyÖ. This could have been a side peg or friction.

    Truth is, when an issue is brought up, super7 brush it off. They have your money and thatís that. Take it or leave it motto is what pushed me away from their ultimates. So long as people like that one guy who does interviews just keep smiling and singing to Brian, people will always get 50 percent of what should be.

    The LJN mumm-ra was even glossed over by the YouTube loyalists and has the wrong bicepÖ. No one said a word. Lion-o even ended up with the wrong boots.

    Despite the positive or negative reviews of the Thundertank, my opinion of it is still the same. It may not be perfect, but it still looks great and really is a great toy BUT...IMO it is not worth the money. $500? Nope. I paid less than that for Galactus and he's awesome and well worth the money. No complaints about him at all. There's no way that the tank should be more.

    If it ever went on sale and I could get it for $300 than maybe but I don't see it ever hitting that.

    My main issue with the T-Tank (other than price) is its display value... meaning that it takes up a LOT of horizontal real estate in a display and doesn't allow for all of that space above to be occupied sensibly.

    With something like Castle Grayskull, you can pile figures up on, around, and in the vertical display piece and it makes for a nice-looking, sensible display. The T-Tank could look silly with a bunch of figures pied up on top of it...

    Its disappointing to hear in the last 'We Want More ThunderCats' YouTube interview, that Snowmeow isn't in development or seemingly even being considered at all really. He should be the next special item for ThunderCats IMO. I consider him a character and thus much more essential than any vehicle. I'd certainly consider him more much more essential and iconic then the Electro-Charger bike we already got.

    This and the Bluegrass from the other thread are incredibly cool. Can I ask how you got them?

    I wish more artifacts or treasure came with Wilykit. Would really sweeten the pot for those of us who have the Mattel set. Kinda feels like we are getting less with the cats lately.

    Alluro and Shiner look a little too basic for my vibe.
    I'm an idiot that army builds s7 things like bats and troopers. But I learned it better to just get one here and there or if the prices drop on Amazon get more. For the most part s7 stuff don't sell out.

    Is it really "that" shocking though? Let's be honest.....They'd sell a handful *relativity speaking* and then people would be thrashing around in the water like piranhas waiting for the price to drop. They have next to no investors for this stuff anymore aside from the actual customers that want it and CAN'T wait. Retailers are taking a bath 10 times over with their product and even a large portion of collector community won't pay full price anymore. The gig is up.

    There's just too much cost involved to make something like that with many more cons then pros.

    That's a good point.

    Jay C. did a review of the tank and he said he has a spot for it which is on top of a dresser. It's not even part of his Cat's display. It's just in a corner. To me, that's dumb. Why buy something like this if you're not going to display it properly?

    Made an unexpected purchase today at a comic shop by me. They had all of the Silverhawks and LJN wave there. And I almost didn't even bother to check the prices cause most everything else was ridiculously overpriced...$25 marvel legends & $20 reactions were both $35 lol.
    But to my surprise all of the Ultimates were $5 cheaper than their usual prices. Im guessing maybe its because they didnt have the mailer boxes. So anyway, finally got LJN Mumm-Ra.

    Oh yeah, and the Silverhawks look really good in person....Bluegrass especially, who I was thinking was maybe the weakest of the wave from the reviews I had seen.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also forgot to mention they also had that terrible Andre the Giant figure, no mailer box either and they wanted $70 for him so yeah, I dont know what was up with the prices.

    Snowmeow is one of my biggest wants. I love the Electro-Charger with Mandora, but I would have much preferred Snowmeow if there was a choice. I hope that they do try the crowd fund method for him!
