Thundercats.ws originally launched as a one stop shop and discussion point for the newly relaunched Thundercats property in 2011. A new show, new licensing deals and new toys based on the classic and new vision of Thundercats was in full swing and we wanted to share in the love since we’ve been fans of Thundercats since we watched them as kids (in their first run, damn we’re getting old). Warner Brothers decided this new vision wasn’t going to work and they’ve abandoned the relaunch. Things happen, and if it wasn’t making money, then they have to do what they have to do.
That means there isn’t enough daily news or content coming out to warrant a full on forum right now, not by us anyway. There are several other Thundercats fan sites out there, all great, and some have forums. Between the limited focused fanbase and lack of new things to talk about, we’ve decided to shut down the forum part of Thundercats.ws. We will keep it online as an archive, but no new posts or activity will be allowed.
Don’t fret – we aren’t abandoning Thundercats completely, no way! We plan to continue the “front page” or “blog” part of this site to cover all the Thundercats news that does pop up here and there. Any company that gets a license for the classic Thundercats will be covered, and if there is eventually a new relaunch – we will be there. As we cover Thundercats here, we will push out any toy news to Toyark.com as well, so if you follow Toyark you shouldn’t miss any of the big stuff.
We may even do up some archives of the original toys and media to act as a reference spot. But, it will be slow and steady, as we have free time, no schedule or rush.
If you’d like to discuss Thundercats, feel free to check these threads out over on Toyark.com – that’s where we will be linking for discussion of new stories here on Thundercats.ws in the future.
So keep an eye out for us in the future, we hope to keep Thundercats.ws fun for years to come. And WB – come on, let’s get this right, we want us some Thundercats – HOOOO!
