I just discovered that WB animation is bringing back the Thundercats in a new show slated to start on Cartoon Network in 2011. It’s being done by the same animation studio as the Halo Reach anime, and its style is said to be darker in tone and more anime in nature. Thundercats is one of those shows from my childhood that I still cherish, even if many of the episodes were thinly veiled toy commercials.
A good, accurate prop Sword of Omens and Claw Shield is one of my holy grails of prop collecting. I’ve seen a number of replica swords, but they always miss something and usually look cheap.
