Note: Full-size shot HERE in case you're looking for a new wallpaper.
So apparently a revamped Thundercats is coming back to television, and let me tell you: Lion-O looks like some sort of confused emo-anime caricature of his former self. Battle Cat will never let you ride him looking like that! "Uh GW? Battle Cat was He-Man's." REPRESSED ENTIRE CHILDHOOD IS REPRESSED.
Based on the Rankin/Bass sci-fi jungle adventure cartoon, the new "ThunderCats" debuts later this year on Cartoon Network and promises an anime look to the series courtesy of Warner Bros. Animation and Japanese partners Studio4°C. "In addition to being Warner Bros. Animation's first anime series, ThunderCats marks our most ambitious foray yet into fantasy," WBA's Sam Register said during the series announcement last June. "The realism and dynamic visual style we've achieved are sure to thrill viewers, and the cool weapons, vehicles and technology should help the show appeal to a diverse audience."
Aaaaaah, so they were actually going for an anime look, good to know. Cheetara: still 150% doable though. Tygra too! And, from the look of things, even kinkier than ever. I know an anal-bead bullwhip when I see one! (I see one every time I look under the bed for my cell phone is the thing)

Thanks to Black and Shirik, who're both happier than kids in candy stores. Uh, guys? You're not actually supposed to say that anymore because it promotes childhood obesity.
