A mullet? Really?

Typically, the hair from the 80s cartoon is supposed to be stupider.

And wasn't she the medic of the ThunderCats? Now she's a angsty gladiator?

While I hated those Wildstorm comics (save the Origins mini), I thought the name "Doberlord" was hilariously awesome. So I kinda would like it if they carried that over, yearh.

The medic thing was made up for the comics as...she didn't really have a role in the G1 cartoon other than "the other lady on the team".

I could've sword she used her medical skills at some point in the cartoon, but I could be misremembering.

I was trying to remember earlier today if she had some kind of job. Really, after a couple years stranded on Third Earth, other lady on the team was probably role that everyone appreciated.

Previews are up on Thundercats.org as well as design sheets of Pumyra, Dobo, and some of the dog gladiators. Great designs, btw. Love how much of their armor is made of discarded technology they no longer know how to use.

Was the "mace for head" robot guy a hommage from the old show, btw?

Umm, I fail to see any significant difference in her hairstyle compared to the old version.

And the whole hatred against Lion-O (and maybe the whole royal family?) just makes her more interesting. Wonder what caused that...

Dan Norton has uploaded tons and tons of designs, sketches, and even early concept art of characters and vehicles from the show, it's worth checking out - even a lot of minor characters are there like the Drifter, the Duelist, Khamai, Shen... Oh, and guide on how the Berbils transform!

Also, LIon-O's mom was supposed to be called Leona, but much like with Chrysalis in MLP FiM, it was never used in the show.

Number 2 looks goofy with that necklace.

GAH! Thank God that Lion-O design was dropped! That Tygra looks better than the final one though.
Thunder-Teens... blah.

AAAA!!!!!!! DEMON SNARF!!!!!!!!!!!

I kinda wish old Snarf was used. Looks like he could have made an interesting character. Someone who could knock some sense into Lion-O with ease.

"The Pit": Good A-plot (and unsurprisingly a bit of Panthro's background this time, albeit without the flashback scenes...just stills). Wretched B-plot.

The Thunderkittens sub-plot took way too much time away from the main story.

I really hope Pumyra sticks around beyond the freeing of the Thundarians from Plundarr Mines.

My thoughts are kinda random on this episode. I'm not sure I could make a cohesive review on it. So I think I'll just leave you all some some of these tid bits.

Cheetara: She must have survived the fall of Thundera.
Me: Now, now! Let's not jump to conclusions. It's entirely possible she died.

The cats don't seem to like the gladitorial arena...because...you know...it's so barbaric...unlike that ringing the bell game they had in Thundera.

And darn it all, Pumyra seems to have gotten my furry fetish in an uproar again.....but you'll never hear me say that out loud <_<

I absolutely must go through the entire season and count how many times Wilhelm's bought it.

I'm not really sure I care for the resolution. The build up was great and all, but it seems Pumyra and Dobo had a change of heart just a bit too easily.
I could've lived on as a werewolf. But nooooo! Now I'm stuck in the body of a pony. I blame GSO.

Eh, it's a slight improvement, as it looks like hair, instead of some sort of weird dead animal on her head. Plus, it doesn't look like she has a bad make up job, but it looks like its part of her colorations.

Don't get me wrong, I don't love the look, but it is a decent attempt to update the horrible look she originally had.

I think her new hair looks like fox tails, which is strange for a cat.

My question is when exactly Panthro was a slave of the Dogs? It must've been some adventure he was one before he adn Grune went on their world tour. I liked how they did the flashback with lots of vague shapes; they were cutting their enemies up with axes while working around the gore. Nice bit of direction to meet BS&P.


Or not. Panthro & Grune were apparently gone for a long time. After Panthro & Grune parted company, he could have been forced into slavery. Grune & Mumra didn't immediately attack Thundera, because Mumra had to build his army of lizard people.

Or at least that a guess where you could fit this in.

I hate to say it, but I know how you feel...

I like that she's got a good deal of characterization. Bitter, a fighter, and still hopeful, as given by the ending. I just hope we keep her (and any other rescued slaves) on as part of the full team. I mean, Thundertank didn't just quintuple in size to be cool after all.

I have to admit though, as much as I get bored with the kittens antics, the Cleptovoyancy idea is something I have GOT to use in D&D.
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.
