Animated Series Preview: The First Official Image From The Brand New "Thundercats" Series!

Warner Brothers has just released the first official image from its brand new Thundercats cartoon (shown above). Their new visages offer some perspective as to the direction this series might be taking.  Panthro and Lion-O have received the most extensive makeovers.  The former looks more like a panther/ape hybrid than a feline humanoid.  His frankly huge looking nunchaku resemble two thirds of a three-section staff.  His gargantuan size (in comparison to the other three) makes him look more like hired security for the other Thundercats than a teammate.  Add scars and male pattern baldness to the mix and you've got a Panthro that looks far more fearsome and battle weathered than the original.
