Thundercats Classic debuted at SDCC 2015 and fans rejoiced! Finally an updated line of Thundercats figures to go with all our other modern reinterpretations. They would be handled by the Four Horsemen of Masters of the Universe Classics fame along with MattyCollector.
Half a year later, and something looked off as only 4 figures would be coming out in year one and it would start later than expected. Ok, not great, but things happen. A couple months later – we are surprised with a kick off to the line a bit early at SDCC 2016 – The Thunderkittens will drop as a 2 pack. Awesome! And then it didn’t show up for the show. Sonofa! Then right after that during SDCC 2016 – we find out MattyCollector is shutting down and the line will be cancelled after the first round of figures come out. WTF. I get it, business is business, but that’s two false starts in 5 years for a collector’s level Thundercats line, and that’s makes me sad. I am happy to grab these figures as is, but hopefully The Four Horsemen, Super 7, and Warner Brothers can figure it all out and continue the line like they are with MOTUC.
Until then, let’s take a look at the first Thundercats Classic figures to drop – Wily Kit and Wily Kat in their SDCC exclusive packaging. We have over 110 images of them in action after the break!
