    I ordered Cheetara, Tygra, Mumm-Ra and Slythe on BBTS so I’m really looking forward to these!

    OK, so now that I'm practically forced to buy some of these figures, can someone tell me the difference between Wave 1 and Wave 2 Lion-O?
    Thanks!

    The second release lion-o has an extra head that looks like he’s smelling farts. He also includes smooth claw shields, in addition to the “furry” claw shields. His other new accessories include extra hands and the book of omens. His sword is brand new, and is more show accurate, but has a worse Thundercats logo on it. He belt has an updated Thundercats logo that is actually better than the original release.

    Second release (Super7) is on the left, original release (Mattel) is on the right:

    Thanks! It almost sounds like a tossup depending on preference. Except I’m not sure if you are comparing S7 to Mattel or S7 Wave 1 vs S7 Wave 2 which is what I was asking about (the latter). Or is there no difference with Wave 1 & Wave 2 S7 releases?

    The S7 re-release lion-o will be identical to their wave 1 release.

    As far as we know, they MAY surprise folks and include a bonus alternate head but I would expect it to be the same. And Wave 1 release is long sold out every where and you will have to pay collector prices for him, Wave 2 is still up for preorder on BBTS too.

    Thanks! My guess is it may be a typo because it says it’s wave one but preorder. All good either way. Thanks again!

    My understanding is that when the Thunder Tank was announced they decided to re-release the prominent characters from wave 1 to increase interest in the line.

    In some interview Brian Flynn said that the only changes to the wave 1 figures will be that Panthro will come with the toon accurate shorts colors and that the Thundercat symbol will be cleaner on Lion-O. It was unclear if he meant on the belt buckle or the Sword of Omens.

    I believe in an interview on thundercats.org Brian indicated that the logo on the sword will be slightly different/better for the Lion-O rerelease.

    Thanks. I probably should have written that I couldn’t remember which logo it was. :p

    I have so many of these figures I’m looking forward to myself. I just placed orders for the 4 main Thundercats, 3 mutants and large mumm-ra plus shredder bebop and rocksteady from tmnt. I feel like if I get these before 2022 it’s a win

    The only characters I feel like would be missing from my collection after that as far as Thundercats go is vultureman, wily kit/kat and snarf. The rest I’m cool without

    It’s gonna be so great having new Thundercats figures to take pics of…in the meantime, here’s a “Sword in a Hole” homage:

    What’s the deal with the unreleased waves? Has Super 7 ever address the issue?

    Yup I think it’s wired too. Super7 is great at soft-goods. I really don’t like them myself but S7 converted me with good use of them.
