Blaise really loves playing with The Thundertank all the time and has even found out how to work the Thunderlynx gimmick. That's play development!
I like the small assortment of figs, but they fall short badly in the weapons department. They are all sort and gummy, and I've lost Cheetara's staff already. I got the accessories stored away anyway because of the baby and because they suck. A third party with resources could really capitalize on this shortcoming.
The impression I get from looking in Smyths around here is that it is doing about as well as everything else that is not marked down - i.e not very well. I've not seen it available anywhere else, but Falkirk is oddly spotty for toy distribution other than Smyths so I don't really take that as diagnostic.
Not really had the urge to buy any of it myself mind - although the Lizard Cannon has a certain charm.
My 99p Lion-O was the start of a slippery slope - I bought Panthro on my next visit and have just bought the Thundertank after discovering it for just £8.50 on Amazon! I hope my branch gets as much in as Ralph's!
