Sounds like the Thundercats could be making a comeback.  A new animated series has been announced (2011), could a toy line be far behind?

Answering myself here, but apparently Bandai has gotten the master toy license for the new series.

Eh...Bandai.  I like the look of their Ben 10 stuff but I don't think I'd be interested in this line.

Damn I am so heart broken that Bandai got the rights. Why could it be Mattel and the 4HM  :-[ >:(

Cheetara's still kind of hot.  :P

Couldn't really tell much about the figures from the photos that got snuck out of the UK Toy Fair yesterday but they look to be about the size of the Ben 10 figures.  Anyone see any good, clear shots of the figures?

I like the look of the series so far (haven't seen the toys), and I'm glad to see the property is coming back.  I was a big fan as a kid, and even remember catching the series again on the old "Toonami" block on Cartoon Network around the time when I was in college.  I picked up the first DVD set when Amazon had it on a sale for like $20, but haven't had a chance to watch them all yet.

I'm really trying to steer clear of adding any new toy lines to the collection at this point, besides what I already collect, but I'll admit that Thundercats would be tempting.  I might be able to avoid it since it will be in the style of the new series, but if there was a MOTU Classics type line of Thundercats, I'd probably be tempted to get a few.  We'll see I guess.  I do hope the property takes off though, it would be cool to see a resurgence and maybe even a movie.

same here.  i did some searching around and I guess there is going to be both a 3 3/4 line and a 7-8 inch line.

Why did they have to age regress the characters to teenagers? That is asinine...Cheetara barely looks legal.

And please don't have another African American do the voice for Panthro...that was painfully racist.  ;)

Way too anime on the designs. I do not like the new look at all. I read they are doing two Classics figures to test the waters but I will not get my hopes up since it's Bandai. I expect 1990ish mitt meat palm hands, shiny plastic and metal 1990ish Toybiz bolt joints.

I haven't seen any pics of the toys yet (I'm guessing we'll see them at Toy Fair), but I noticed that BBTS has preorders for the following:

4" Figures
6" Collector Figures
8" Classic Collector Figures
Deluxe Vehicle with Figure Sets
Thundertank Deluxe Vehicle
Tower of Omens Deluxe Playset

I heard that one of those scales are basically Ljn rereleases. Not sure if there is any truth to it.

EDIT______________________

well seems like i heard wrong anyway.

Just an FYI that Walmart has black T-shirts with the red TC logo for $7.50.  I found one last week and just couldn't resist.
