got this in an email today, first I'd heard of it:
Thunder Cats Trading Cards (SRP-$2.99) 6 Boxes Per Case / 24 Packs Per Box / 8 Cards Per pack
Release Date: 12-10-11
Meet the all new ThunderCats!
One of the most iconic animated series of the 1980s and a continuing pop culture force, ThunderCats is an epic tale of a young hero's journey to fulfill his ultimate destiny. The new ThunderCats series follows Lion-O, the young heir to the throne, who embarks on a great quest to take his rightful place as king. The kingdom of Thundera is threatened by the evil sorcerer Mumm-Ra, and Lion-O, the unlikely champion, must work with his faithful comrades Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro, WilyKat, WilyKit and his loyal pet, Snarf, on his journey to save their world from darkness. Bandai is pleased to introduce an all new 72 card set from the hit Cartoon Network show. This set includes: . 60 thundering trading cards . 12 special rare foil cards (1 per pack)
The new ThunderCats half-hour show airs regularly on Cartoon Network Friday nights at 8:30 p.m. (ET, PT). THUNDERCATS HOOO!
. 8 cards per pack - 1 Holographic Foil card per pack
A good kid-oriented set? Yes?
$3 a pack is $1 less than Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh, so that should not be a barrier, at least in theory.
Bad thing is my orders are due in a week, very little time to get the word out and then a long wait to December.
I watch the new Thundercats with my 5 year old. He loves the old show as well as the new one. I think that this will be a good thing for us - he recently started asking about Pokemon as his friends all have cards. We can open packs and put the set together, together.
Looking forward to this.
