    Holy crap. New Thundercats is a good thing.

    I personally feel the old show still holds up (unlike the original He-Man) but that promo art looks amazing.

    And I would love to see how they modernize the toys and designs, as well as how a modern day writing team can tackle the show.

    Very cool. Now lets bring back some M.A.S.K. and GoBots! :)

    /me reads press announcement.

    Blech. I suppose it may be slightly watchable.

    Oh. Wow. If that's a good indicator, greatness shall follow.

    I also hope that means there will be a good kickass Mumm-Ra figure to follow. As I recall, I only had four figures, Lion-O with Snarf, Mumm-Ra, his mummy form, and the short lizard guy whose name currently escapes me.

    With that news, Furries across the land ran to supermarkets for tissues.

    For years, until I got the internet, I always wondered what the second "Thundercats are Loose" line in the theme song was supposed to be because I thought that it sounded like "Thundercats are Moose" and it never occured to me that the song was lame enougth to just repeat the same line again a few seconds later.

    Just read over on Toplessrobot that BANDAI will be making toys for Thundercats. Bleggh, this will be very disappointing if true.

    Then again, if any series they ever air looked half as bada-- as that promo poster, Cartoon Network would be the only channel I'd ever watch.

    ...but shouldn't Cheetara be topless :p 

    So it looks like they're giving Lion-o more of a teenage look which of they're following the same story preface as the original makes more sense.

    That's a lot better than I was expecting it to be (but then again I've been out of the loop since the whole "it's going to center around Snarf" thing). I'm definitely looking forward to this. Might get some of the toys if they look good. Only one thing bothers me about that image, and that's the robotic look Lion-O's glove has. Though I'll probably get used to that over time.

    If you want to see Cheetara topless go back and watch the first episode of the original series. You aren't missing much.

    That's what I was referencing in my original comment.

    Oh Foghorn Leghorn how I now understand you :p

    The Sword of Omens looks the same, and just from that picture the drawing appears to be right on par with that of the original series, which was actually pretty good. No Wily Kit or Kat?

    Will definitely watch it, but as always, I do have some gripes. Panthro seems too big to me, like he's roided up or something. And Lion-O looks too young. I realize he's suppose to be the youngest of the group, sans the twins, but not this young.

    Oh so cool. Hey, Lion-O doesn't look like the offspring of a gay clown :D .
