    somehow they just randomly appeared via USPS

    I really hope super 7 can find a way to get the license because these guys are a GREAT start...

    The packaging makes for a really good diorama

    Could be worse, my order is still in progress and hasn't shipped.

    Thanks for posting the picture! Wow, the kittens really look good! Looks like I'll have to get that from E(vil)bay. The Horsemen really knock them out of the park as usual!

    you got to be kidding right?! Then again this is DR, we talking about! X)

    Man, Thundercats just can't catch a break. Now I'm glad I trusted my gut feeling and decided not to buy a subscription for the line. It's quite a shame as the figures honestly looks pretty good, but what's the point if the team(s) will never be completed :( 

    I wonder if these figures will be cheap on the aftermarket in the foreseeable future as a result of this?

    Finally checked my Wilykit and kat status because I hadn't heard anything from them, and like others, still processing. I was tempted to check out their next sale but that will come and go before I even hear about this order. I know they're shutting down but geez. Makes me want to force cancel my sub at this point as well.

    Anyone want to take bets at these showing up at Big Lots or TJ Maxx next summer for $10 each?

    I contacted CS and the answer I got was that they were trying to obtain more stock and my CC wouldn't be charged until the items ship.

    They still have Watchmen figures at Mattycollector. I wouldn't be surprised to see those show up at Big Lots. :lol

    I didn't even know Safari Joe, Captain Shiner, and Captain Cracker even existed.

    I'm still on the lookout myself for a Lynx-O. I think he's the last of the rarer figures I need.

    I did pick up a vintage Thundertank today. As is pretty typical, it didn't have the treads, but otherwise it's in fantastic shape. For $20 I couldn't pass it up. It'll still display nicely.

    E-mailed Matty to ask about the thunder kittens and other sdcc stuff that's processing

    Their answer

    We have not yet been able to ship the products from MattyCollector.com listed below. Your order will be fulfilled as soon as the product(s) becomes available. The estimated date of fulfillment is 09/13/2016.

    ......Very annoyed right now.

    I picked up Pumyra but she has those spots on her. :(  Still will keep it till I find one in better condition. I need the back over for my Thundertank.

    I have a Jaga and he has spots too on one of his legs. What causes that? Plastic degrading?

    Huh. I've never heard of this spots issue on the vintage figures.

    The Pumyra I have is in pretty good shape other than she has some pretty severe paint wear on her boobs. The boy that owned her must've really liked her. :lol 

    A couple years ago I came across this guy that had a big bin of random figures. After digging through it I came across Jaga, Ben-Gali, and Pumyra. This was before I really knew who they were even. I only took them because I recognized the Thundercats logo on them. Got them for $3 each. It wasn't until I got home and did a little research on them that I discovered what they're worth.

    I've since then replaced that Ben-Gali with a much nicer one that I found on Craigslist last year. This one even came with his weapon. The guy knew it was rare but he still sold it to me for $15.

    My collection so far. I really don't have the shelves space for them now. I just need those second series figures. Anyone have some for sale? :D

    What condition are those orange-haired Lion-Os in? I have a really nice red-haired Lion-O, but the orange one I have has a really yellowed chest for some reason. I've been on the lookout for a nice one for quite awhile.

    "Due to unforeseen shipping circumstances beyond our control, the first subscription figure, Lion-O™, will be arriving just a little later than planned. (We blame it on the TSA – ThunderCats™ Security Administration.) But you won’t have to wait long... we expect Lion-O™ to start shipping at the end of September."

    I'm so envious of the vintage collections! Thanks for sharing guys!

    By the way, when is Lion-O scheduled for released?
