More Details On Bandai's Thundercats Toy Line Surface From UK Toy Fair
Thundercats: Jay Cochran - 2011.01.28
Following the news of leaked images for Bandai's initial offering of Thundercats product from earlier this week at the UK Toy Fair, we now have some additional details about the toy line to share with you thanks to TNI Forum member Dark Horse who made the trip out to the UK Toy Fair this week.

According to Dark Horse Bandai will be releasing figures in 3 different scales, (4", 6", 8") plus a 8" Classics line which will start off with a Classic version of Lion-O. The articulation for these figures feature ball hips, shoulders and head as well as hinge joints on the elbows and knees. He says he couldn't tell if he wrists or ankles moved. On display was 4" figures of Tigra, Lion O, Cheetara and Panthro. Slithe though not present was listed on the year planner.

Dark Horse also gives us some details on the Thundertank vehicle which is being made for the 4" scale figures. He describes the Thundertank as having a neat design though somewhat small looking. The claws lift up and there's removable bikes underneath. The 4" figures will contain a magnet action feature that activates features on the vehicles and playsets. He also says that Snarf will be a pack-in with the Thundertank.

Other interesting tid-bits of info is that Wily Kit/Kat won't be in this line, at least starting out, This is because Lion-O is much younger in this new version of the series, and it didn't make since to have those two who were already very young in the original series to appear.

Dark Horse also mentioned that he saw a cool looking electronic Mumm-Ra room alarm toy which looks very much like the Mumm-Ra from the original series.

More details and images for all these will be fourth-coming next month during the NY Toy Fair which takes place February 12-14, so be sure to check TNI out then as we will be bringing you complete coverage of the event, including an official look at these new Thundercats toys.
