The heir to Thundera, a Horde honcho, and a hostile horse … these three long-awaited characters arrive in our September sale! Check out the first figure for Club Third Earth plus two awesome MOTU figures!

Can you hear the thunder? That’s the sound of the first ThunderCats™ figure arriving! Bravely leading the way is Lion-O™, the first of four new figures for Club Third Earth. Plus, it’s a time of great trouble, but General Sundar™ breaks rank to stand with the side he knows will serve Etheria best. The wise warrior arrives this month, along with the Collector’s Choice semi-annual figure, Night Stalker™.

• Thursday, 9/15 at 9 a.m. PT (everyone)

September Subscription Key Dates

• Subscriptions Renew/Cards Charged: See below
• For Collector’s Choice subscribers: Night Stalker™ will be held until General Sundar™ arrives, starting at the end of September. General Sunder™ sent word via rebel courier that he thanks everyone for their patience and he’s fighting diligently to reach us and his family. Your card will not be charged until your order ships.
• For Club Third Earth subscribers: The first subscription figure, Lion-O™, will be arriving just a little later than planned. (We blame it on the TSA – ThunderCats™ Security Administration.)

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    I signed up for the Thundercats subscription, but now I am regretting it because this is, from what I understand, going to be the only wave. Which means none of the mainstays like Tigra, Cheetara, Lynx-O, and Bengali and none of the villains, like transformed Mumra and Vulture Man and the big lizard boss whose name escapes me, will be made in this style. An incomplete collection is a big, big bummer, and reminds me too much of the “gone too soon” DC Universe collection. I still lament all of the great characters that missed their chance to be rendered by the 4 Horsemen.
