WilyKit and WilyKat Are Ready to Pull a Wicked Ollie Right Into Your Heart

ToyNewsI has these pics of Bandai’s 4-inch WilyKit and WilyKat figures, and you may notice that they happen to be riding skateboards. Honestly, I have no idea if their characters in the ThunderCats cartoon will ride skateboards around, or if these are just accessories to the figures, added so Bandai can justify selling WilyKit and WilyKat sold separately. I’m actually not that upset at the prospect of them riding them in the cartoons; frankly, the fact that Snarf doesn’t speak is wonderful enough that I can forgive pretty much anything else. Although the fact that WilyKit appears to be 4-years-old and wearing a midriff-baring shirt is quite disturbing. Cheetara has met all of our ThunderCat slut needs, all right? Let’s not make this more depraved than it already is.
