Finally, some real and fantastic news. Fans of Mezco’s 14″ Mega Scale Thundercats look to be in for a real treat. MTV Geek got a behind the scenes look at the making of the Mega Scale Mumm-Ra, and with it comes a first look at PANTHRO! Not only that, but we get a fleeting glimpse at, what appears to be, a Mega Scale Mumm-Ra Mummy! Mumm-Ra is scheduled for release in May, with Panthro coming later this year.

Unfortunately, nothing of note came out of the UK Toy Fair for Thundercats fans. That will likely change when the North American Toy Fair begins in just a few short weeks. For now, Toy New Magazine’s Facebook Page added some pics from the show. We’ve mirrored the Thundercats pics for easy browsing.

Bandai UK has posted a video on YouTube of their Augmented Reality Packaging. The video shows how you will be able to use a mobile device (so long as it has a camera) to check out a full view of a toy without taking it out of the packaging. They use Lion-O to showcase how it can work. Check it out below.

Forum member TIGER007 informs us of a conversation he had with Bandai USA. They initially informed him that a licensing issue was preventing Thundercats products from coming to Canada (save for some that slipped into stores before the issue arose). Now he has learned that the figures will be hitting stores in August as the issue appears to have been resolved.
