Okay, I love the figures, but my Lion-o has craptastic ankles and keeps falling over. Anybody have any suggestions about loose ankle joints?

I would love all of thos figures Green Arrow mentioned. I would also add the Berzerkers and eventually the Lunatacs and TigerSharks and SilverHawks and their rogues.

I wonder if we will ever get vehicles of playsets for the Classics line. I suppose it depends on how the line does in the future.

Considering how well the toys are selling I can see this franchise being another Ben 10 and CN rebranding it multiple times (as well as spinning off SilverHawks and TigerSharks). The longer the show is on the air, the bigger the sellection of Classics we will get. Here's hoping for as many episodes as Ben 10.

The Classics line seems to be pretty cool. The ones I would probably buy two of each are:

1. Mumm-Ra (Mummified)
2. Slythe
3. Jackalman
4. Monkian
5. Vultureman
6. Mumm-Ra the Everliving
7. Captain Cracker (Everyone's favorite, lol)
8. Mumm-Ra as King Arthur (Hey, it could happen.......right?)

Ok a little update it looks like it's going to be a figure every 3 months, so every 6 months there will be 2 figures on the market, so we will get 4 figures a year.

Kind of make sense actually if you think about it.

We Know they want to get the Main Thundercats team out by the end of 2012:
Month 3 - Panthro
Month 6 - Cheetara
Month 9 - Wily-Kit and Wily-Kat (Remember we have it confirmed that these 2 will be doubled packed)
Month 12 - Jaga + Snarf (More than likely)

Then the Following year would most probably be a villain year:
Month 3 - Mumm-Ra the Everliving
Month 6 - Slythe
Month 9 - Monkian
Month 12 - Jackalman

Then the following year, if it is still going strong I could see being a mix of characters.
Month 3 - Bengali
Month 6 - Vultureman
Month 9 - Lynx'O
Month 12 - Rattar'O

And then it would carry on like this until it eventually has all the classic characters made (I could see it lasting 8 yrs this way).

NOTE: Remember these figures are only musings of mine and not what's going to be released, although Ban Dai has still said that they wanted to do the main team by the end of 2012.

Anybody think we'll get a look at the next figure in the line at NYCC?

That would be sweet. :D

I hope so to, I hope they reveal a lot at NYCC like the next 4" inch wave, the next Classic Figure, and so forth.

BBTS has listed wave 2 for the Classics line:

Looks like we're only getting Cheetarah?

Cal, I don't think that's the classic line, but the six inch collector's line based on the new cartoon.

The Classic guys are 8 inches, I think.

I'm worried about the line, now. The initial shipments around here sold through like lightning but now they're both peg-warmers (I'm talking six pegs packed at the local Walmart) while the kid based line seems to be selling well. Anybody else seeing the same thing?

I noticed some of my local Wal-Marts have the classic Ban Dai line in excessive stock.

I noticed the same thing at my Toys R Us. The initial wave sold like hot cakes. But now there's an army of Tigras and Lion-Os just sitting there.
