He-Man figures were actually released 2 years before the show. She-Ra came out the same time *it's* figures did. Thundercats cartoon came out (3 airing episodes) in Jan of 85' and then the rest were released in September of that year. Originally the show was worked on in 83' according to some sites but again, were only released in 85'. |

: Just recently, it came to my attention that the
: Thundercats (the story... plot, TV cartoons and
