When Funko announced the Savage world line, with it’s vintage-style 5.5″ form factor, little did we know that vintage properties were right around the corner. Enter Thundercats, a property near and dear to my 80’s heart. In fact, when I think about out, had Mattel produced Thundercats toys in the 1980’s, I’m betting they would’ve looked just like these. Series one is hitting retail now, and series 2 is coming REAL soon, getting close to accomplishing a feat no modern Thundercats line has done; completing the core team.
These are really fun, solid toys. looking at the Savage World offerings shown at Toy Fair and beyond, I think that Thundercats lends itself perfectly to this format. I can’t wait to see where this whole line goes! That said, let’s take a look at series one:
Full disclosure time – I did a couple of the paint masters for these for Funko, and it was such a pleasure; I’m a huge Thundercats fan! I’d like to thank Funko for sending these to me for review! Look for these to appear on retail shelves at your local stores and online.
