Thundercats anime series and toys

The new Thundercats animated series, which is being produced in Japan by Studio 4*C (The Animatrix, Batman: Gotham Knight, Tekkon Kinkreet, Halo Legends) and is set to debut on the Cartoon Network later this year, definitely has more of an “anime” look to it than the original 1980s Thundercats cartoon, even though that series was also animated in Japan.

While the Thundercats live-action movie appears to be stuck in Hollywood’s expansive “development hell,” the TV series, which was announced last summer (see “New Thundercats Series”), is on track for its 2011 debut and the new more anime-influenced character designs are on display in a recently released poster image and in the new series of licensed Thundercats toys based on the Cartoon Network series.

The new Lion-O has the faceted hairdo of a DBZ or Yu-Gi-Oh! character, while Cheetara is more waiflike in her new incarnation, and the bruising Panthro looks like he could have stepped right out of Heat Guy J. It turns out that the team’s pet/mascot Snarf, who does not appear in the poster illustration has a younger, somewhat less rotund appearance than the original character. The image of the new Snarf comes from the packaging of a new Thundercats Thunder Tank via Superhero Hype.

The sleek and powerful new Thunder Tank itself makes an interesting contrast to the original toy design. The packaging of the new Tank gives it a more massive appearance, but it also clearly pays homage to the original Thunder Tank concept.

If something's important, just say so without yelling at me. Or fly over to it and change color like you usually do. Just because I'm busy mowing the lawn and hoping I'll find some spare change, doesn't mean I can't hear you." - Link

Mabye its just me, but I don't like Lion-o's new look. It just looks like its going to be super kiddish with a crumby juvenile storyline.
I don't really like any of there new looks.... even thought they look kinda neat.... They just look copied & pasted from FF7 & a little more....

Lion-O looks like Cloud

Tygra's pose looks like Vincent's

I wanna say Panthro looks like Barret, but the more I look at him he looks like Jet Black from Cowboy Bebop.

Cheetara looks like Tifa.... I was hoping Cheetara would be wearing a Cammy Like Bathing Suit....

Snarf reminds me of Ryo-Ohki from Tenchi....

This is test footage from the original CG movie they were planning on making first, until they decided to go with an animated series.

i think it looks decent.

will give it a try

with modern cartoons of this genre, they aim at young adults too, so they hold back on graphic violence for younger viewers, but throw in a decent story for adults

I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

      This is without a doubt the best thing I have seen on tv this entire year. 4 series in a massive justice league / captain America civil war style plot spanning 4 episodes and it was amazing. I really hope they make another crossover special next year. Superheroes versus the ultimate Nazis. The episodes are online if anyone wants to watch:

      We'll have to wait until 2018 for the new anime series.

      I loved this cartoon when i was a kid. The animation looks good, the music is great, the voice actors are a good match. I'll watch this.

      I watched the first 3 episodes of this tonight and I'm loving it so far. Unlike the movie where everyone is stuck in a grocery store, the bulk of the cast is trapped in a mall, while others are in a church or on the road trying to avoid getting killed. Spike has done a good job with this. Depending on how they treat this series it could be their own Walking Dead kind of show. No zombies needed here with the amount of monsters ready to kill everyone.

      It looks good to me, except for Iron Fist. Even in this trailer he has to say "I'm Iron Fist". I hope the guy that wrote Iron Fist isn't part of this production, because if he is, I'll expect to hear Iron Fist say his own name again 100 more times in the show.
