I've seen both the first and second version of Thundercats. Aesthetically speaking it is an upgrade. The original Thundercats looked a little older but I think that was the purpose. The original Lion-O looked okay. He was the best looking of the Thundercats unless you counted Cheetara (who continues to be beautiful in both versions). I do like the new version better in most ways.

lion-o in the old series, to me, always looked kinda(he also doesn't pants....that's werid in my standards) ugly. new lion-o looks hot and cute at the same time(according to me)!

surprisingly, no

The original drawing is exactly what you see. I split the page in 2 and drew both halves of the faces on the same page.

Although I never have seen the original Thundercats from what I see of the Original LionO I like his newer version better, I'm sure those who watched the Original would disagree, maybe not all but it all depends on point of veiw.

More like early 90's. Still, his old look brings nostalgia.
Even so, new look is ok. :D

I've heard that the voice of the original Lion-o voices his father.

this its far the most interesting draw ive seen ;) i did watch the 80s series, though im not from that generation hahaha im not that old, but the series got 2 times to the TV on my country, i can say that the original its far my number 1 still, but the new series are awsome as well, watching it wasnt bored at all at least i liked it, the new designs are cool too :) and the plot its toally nice n_n, i have heard many people disliking the new series... but well... not everyone has the same mind lol. And its said that about Likes there is nothing write xD jajaja ;I

Lion-o keeps being cool even with the new desing!!! and smexy xD
i think the detail that its the one everyone notice was the eyes..... xD

Very interesting image I have to admit, the one thing I see wrong with the pic is that the pupil in the 80's Lion-O's eye is too long. But it is a nice comparison of the two

I like this. :D I still havent seen the new thundercats though, I'm worried it wont be good. Its one of those things thats either going to be amazing, or suck a lot, at least in my eyes.

I've watched the first 2 episodes of the new series. It's pretty good, but i've not seen the orignal, so i have no real opinion
