Top Thundercats Toys For Christmas 2011

Updated on January 11, 2012

ThunderCats are on the move, ThunderCats are loose. Feel the magic, hear the roar, ThunderCats are loose. Thunder Thunder Thunder ThunderCats.

If you are now singing along, chances are you were born in the 80s and used to watch the ThunderCats cartoon. I loved ThunderCats as a child, and had many of the figures. Now ThunderCats is back on TV, and popular with our own children. This Christmas my Son has asked for the Lion-o figure among other characters. He excitedly tells me all about the programme as if it is a new thing. I don't think he understood how i could have watched the same cartoon when i was his age ha ha.

So after ages of rummaging through boxes in the loft, he was delighted when i presented him with my old Cheetara, WileyKit and Mumm-ra figures. Instead of the usual "That's so old fashioned Mum" it was more like "That's too cool for school Mum".

Now all the ThunderCat figures and play sets that people have been bidding ridiculous amounts for on EBay, are readily available in a toy shop near you!!

"You still have the theme tune in your head don't you"???

Below you will see the top 5 most popular ThunderCat toys this Christmas. The ten best selling ThunderCat figure, plus my personal favourite. Also watch the 1980s cartoon advert Vs the 2011 advert and vote for your favourite!!

ThunderCats Thundertank- This tank features realistic sound effects and working lights, it also has Thunderracer launchers, and comes with a 4" Snarf figure. When you place Snarf in the drivers seat, you will hear phrases such as "ThunderCats Hooo!!" and "ThunderCats Fire". There is also a button on the back of the tank to launch the Thunderracers, and your child will hear Lion-o's voice say "ThunderCats Launch!!"

My Favourite 2011 Toy

      Haha! Yes, I felt that way about the new transformer cartoons as opposed to the 80s transformers cartoon. I wonder if they're thinking of doing a Thundercats live action movie? That would be interesting!

      Thank you Polyglot. It is nice when our own children are interested in the same toys and programmes we were :)

      Nice :) This is somewhat related, since it has to do with toys. I recently looked at my megazord(power rangers) and it is as amazing as when I used to play with it. If I ever have children, I am sure I will run into situations similar to yours.

      I caught myself humming the theme at work today. I think your hub is viral, and I've caught it! Lucky for me, I LIKE the Thundercats theme song. :^)

      Thank you Word Caddy. I only know as my Son watches it. Yes i agree the 80s is still the best as we watched that one growing up. P.s. Hope you managed to get the theme song out of your head :)

      Blimey, I didn't realise Thundercats had made a comeback! I think with most things, you one you grew up with and attached yourself to will always be the best. So definitely the original version for me!

      And yes, now I'm going to be singing the theme to myself.
