Bandai Announces ThunderCats Global Master Toy License

Warner Bros. Animation announced yesterday that they are launching a new animated series for ThunderCats in conjunction with Studio 4°C, to be aired on the Cartoon Network starting in 2011. In conjunction with that announcement, Bandai announced it had acquired the global master toy license.

The announcement states that the toys will cover both the new and classic shows. While Bandai is best known for their more kid-oriented properties, like Ben 10 and Power Rangers, I’m hoping this means we’ll see some product targeted at adult collectors too.

Pop Culture Shock Announces New Line of Thundercats Statues

For those of you hoping hearing the buzz about a new Thundercats license, here you go. I’ve always liked the Pop Culture Shock mixed media statues, especially the Street Fighter and Darkstalker women. But I’ll still be waiting impatiently for Thundercats action figures.


80’s Icons Immortalized in Premium Format Statue Line

NORTHRIDGE, CA (March 26, 2010): Pop Culture Shock Collectibles are pleased to announce they are the newest licensor for the wildly popular 80’s cartoon Thundercats! This licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products will bring 1/4 scale mixed media statues to hardcore collector’s homes in 2010.

Pop Culture Shock has made a name for themselves with their Street Fighter™ and Darkstalkers™ statue lines, distributed through Sideshow Collectibles and Diamond Distribution. The 1/4 scale mixed media series offers highly detailed sculpting, beautiful paints and cloth costumes on figures 17” and larger providing a stunning collection for the most discriminating fan. The Thundercats line will adopt this same amazing quality.

“It should come as no surprise that I’m a big fan of 80’s properties” stated Jerry Macaluso, President and Founder of Pop Culture Shock Collectibles. “Street Fighter™ allowed me to bring iconic characters to people’s homes in the most striking format I could conceive. Now, Thundercats will get the star treatment once again that this killer animation classic deserves. We are extremely excited to be working closely with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on this project and can’t wait to show fans of the series what they will soon be able to bring home.”
