Apparently the word is that Bandai has the license.

I hope they don't mess with the designs too much. They hold up pretty well in my opinion. :lol:

Bandai issued their PR today. It's official.

From press release:
Quote:
Bandai and their international affiliates will create and distribute products worldwide that will complement both the classic brand property, as well as Cartoon Network’s fresh take on the animated series, with new television episodes set to air in 2011.

Sounds like we'll see both.

I'm still excited over the cartoon announcement. I'm not exactly thrilled that Bandai was given the license instead of Mattel, but I'll withhold judgement until I see the product.

At least if it's decent, we'll be able to find it. :D

Yeah, I would rather see Bandai make them and sell them in stores than Mattel make them and sell them online, which seems to be their preferred business plan. Hopefully these will be a fun bit of nostalgia. Never had any Thundercats toys back in the day, but I did watch the show and have a few of the comics.

Actually, I remember one night, way back in the 80's, flipping channels between the Thundercats movie (with the new guys/gal) and "The Exorcist", and I settled on the T-Cats movie because the Exorcist scared me too much. :)

Best news I've heard in months. I've never purchased a Bandai product, so I can't speak for or against them but it's great that they're focusing on pleasing both old and new collectors.

I'm hoping that, with the mention of classic toys, that Bandai produces some classic figures first so they could bring them to market sooner. I'm guessing the new toon won't debut until Fall 2011, putting the new toys around that timeframe as well.

So, Bandai, please bring me some 4" classic T-cats figures pronto! Please?

I'm not completely sure, but hasn't Bandai produced 4'' lines of brands such as Power Rangers? I could swear I've seen stuff along that kind of range. Might bode well for a smaller scale Thundercats classic line.

Yes, they have. The current Power Rangers line is 3-3/4" or 4". Their Dragonball movie line was, too. That's what gives me hope.
