Lion-O's face is something I hope they tweak more. Rest of his sculpt and other figures look great.

Mumm-Ra was apparently marked as subscription only. So the line starts off with a subscription, which is good news. Now I don't have to worry about the early figures being sold out in minutes.

It's apparent that they are using the MOTUC mold as the default body sculpt.

Jackalman shouldn't have so much muscles. Icon Heroes did the proper skinny look for him. Oh well, we can't help it. I am nitpicking at this point.

I will likely complain from time to time, but I will support the line by buying all the figures. And I hope all fans will do the same. We have waited long enough for this line and it should continue until all the major and secondary characters get their due in figure form.

Man, I hope they make a Mandora figure by next year.

Updated Lion-O sculpt pics.

From the Matty forum:

"Good day Thunderians!
Remember the Lion-O we showed at Comic Con this year? We loved him and you loved him too, but after hearing from the fans and doing a little thinking we decided to take a trip back to the sculpting table to make him a little more cartoon-esque."

Love the calm yet stern look that I always wanted, still not all cartoon accurate likeness but it's a great improvement. Digging the improved body skin tone too.

Look out for #1. Don't step in #2 either.

those look great, i wonder if they will fit in the old thunder tank until we get a new and improved one, not like the recent version which was terrible.

i hope they start and finish the line unlike bandai that stopped with lion o and tigra. i think the sdcc lion o was the last variant. mezco was close to completing the line but didn't make tigra.

Mezco made a prototype for Tygra and it was shown at SDCC last month. They have plans to release it during end of 2015 or early 2016.

Club Third Earth Subscription Monthly Shipment Option
Subscription starts on January 11, 2016 Monday at 9:00 AM Pacific.

Here are the list of figures to be released this year.

Lion–O (07/16)
Jackalman (08/16)
Pumyra (09/16)
Club-exclusive: Mumm–Ra (09/16)
Panthro (10/16)
Grune (11/16)
Jaga (12/16)


Didn't expect them to go with Pumyra so early on, but I like the decision. I am in no hurry to have the core team right away, as I want to see this line continue for few years thus allowing us to have all the core and secondary characters.

Will place my subscription order on Monday right away and I hope all ThunderCats fans will do the same. This is what fans have been waiting for so many years and it's time to prove our support through out wallets.

I wrote about wanting ThunderCats toys in my above long blog post in 2014. I am so glad we are getting these figures now.

I'm a big Thundercats fan and right now I only collect the Mezco line. I wouldn't be averse to starting a new line but these just don't do it for me.
Lion-O seems really short and squat to me from the preview pics. That list of characters is certainly intriguing though.
