Toy news is always a little stale leading up to Toy Fair. You get occasional announcements, but for the most part, the time between Christmas and NYTF in February is the duldrums of this hobby. That's why I was doubly excited to find this beautiful Cheetara action figure listed on BigBadToyStore today. I love love love Cheetara and we've been teased with a lot of products lately that we will likely never see. Bandai mentioned an 8" classic Cheetara as the final figure in the line, but we haven't heard anything in roughly 18 months so I'm assuming it's scrapped. Pop Culture Shock had released images of a decent Cheetara statue earlier this year that has also now been cancelled. These Mega-Scale ThunderCats figures from Mezco are pretty awesome. I see them at Toys'R Us all the time. They are 14" tall with roughly 10 points of articulation and usually run from $30-$40. So far we have, Lion-O, Panthro, & Mumm-Ra (with variants of Mumm-Ra & Lion-O). Cheetara is due in June 2013 and I can't wait!
Here is a mock-up of all the heros together so far. Tygra's gotta be next!
And of course, Mumm-Ra the Ever-Living!
