- Who would have the license? After seeing what they did with Goliath, I'd like to see Neca get it just because they have better distribution than Super 7 (plus their niche is more nostalgia oriented).

-What will they look like? Sad to say it's likely that they'll be redesigned to where they're nearly unrecognizable save for the obvious big cat resemblances.

- What scale? I think that is going to depend on who they're trying to market the movie to. If they're going for maximum kid appeal - probably 4 to 5 inches to allow for some vehicles and a typically shitty playset. If they go after the adult collector market more then they'd probably go with the all mighty 1:12 scale and pack em with accessories.. ( that wont have anything to do with the character or the movie).

They already did this movie. It had Idris Elba, Judi Dench and Ian McKellen in it, but I think they took too many liberties with the story.

Liberties?! Everyone knows the Thundercats are the Jellicle chosen and the big Cat Castle they live in is *the* Heaviside Layer.

THIS. IS. 100%. CANNON!

I'd also go for a Lego or Construx line. Lots of great vehicles to build out.

Dude!! I would be totally satisfied with Mega Construx Thundercats!! They would be extremely affordable, generously articulated, and even kind of cute ( which I never say )

I have some MCX MOTU figures and I really dig them. I like them far better than LEGOs because I don't care for that blocky, square-ish look.

I'm on the MCX message board, and sadly, the last I heard, they had no plans for 'Cats. I guess things can change, though....
