From the London Toy Fair, taken under maximum security conditions, a first look at the new Thundercats cartoon…

The New Thundercats Cartoon – First Pic (UPDATE)

SECOND UPDATE: Second image added to the site. Better image? Worse?

UPDATE: We have more details

The character designs seem to be very anime-inspired, making them radically different to the originals. However, it didn't give me the negative feeling I had when I first saw footage from the 2002 He-Man series.

The TV screen had a promotional trailer with interviews from the cast (Mr. Kenney was not included) so I also saw the design of the Kittens, Snarf, Slithe and Mumm-Ra. Snarf and mummy Mumm-Ra were almost identical to the originals, Slithe and transformed Mumm-Ra were in between, while the Kittens were completely redesigned (and looked tiny on Panthro's shoulders).

Say, anyone remember this?
