Mattel has released two different 8 inch figures from the Thundercats line for this year, 2011. This assortment includes the following figures:
Lion-O 8 inch Action Figure
Tygra 8 inch Action Figure
Thundercats (2011) will feature the new adventures of the characters we already know: Lion-O, Panthro, Tigre, Chita, Feline and Feline. According to the articles I’ve read online, the new Thundercats will appeal to fans of the classic and the new generation who know little or nothing about the original. This reboot narrates the rise of Prince Lion-O to the throne and those who want to impede his destiny. The forces of good and evil clash in the search for the Stones of Power, while both Lion-O and its champions learn lessons of loyalty, honor and mortality. Swords, science, and fierce battles will result in a new version that takes on epic proportions.
The redesign of the characters take on the characteristics of anime, recovering its original elements. Lion-O is a more youthful, like Chita. Panthro gives a slight air Beast and Tigre is about the same. The new Lion-O does look pretty cool and I hope they keep to the original story. What do you think?
