'Thundercats' Promo Image Spotted In London

ThundercatsThe announcement of a new "Thundercats" animated series scheduled to premiere this year was one of the biggest stories of 2010 here on Splash Page, so we've kept on the lookout for any more details we can bring you about the upcoming return of Lion-O and the rest of the gang from Thundera.

Well, here's a big one, folks: it looks like we have our very first image of the cast of the series as they'll appear in their new animated form.

UPDATE: Warner Bros. Animation has released a new, official image of the "Thundercats" characters as they'll appear in the series.

Posted over at Bleeding Cool, the photo of a "Thundercats" promo poster was taken at this year's London Toy Fair, and features Lion-O, Panthro, Cheetara, and Tygra. The series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation with noted Japanese animation Studio4°C (“The Animatrix,” “Gotham Knights”) giving the characters a "21st Century reimagining" for the project.


Head over to Bleeding Cool for a larger version of the photograph, and be sure to check out some of our previous coverage for more on the "Thundercats" animated series:
