A word of warning to those interested in buying this new set - it's exactly the same release as the previous season sets, only with fewer episodes!
IGN.com gave a review that stated:
"This new set runs roughly $15, but there's a serious catch - the original DVD featured 33 episodes of the show. This set contains just 12! Considering there are 65 episodes in this first season and 65 episodes in the second season, this two-disc set is ripping off consumers by charging more and offering less overall. For shame...
You might be wondering, though, is the presentation better, at least? Nope. It's a direct port of the previous set. Strike two...
If you already own ThunderCats on DVD, do not buy this double-dip. It's really just a port of the previous disc with no new material and the same A/V presentation. In fact, I can't even recommend it to newcomers. In the long run you'll spend way more on these sets than if you just broke down and bought the four-volume complete series DVD. Unless these sets wind up in a $5 bin, avoid them."
You can still find the first release sets for sale on Amazon for $20-$25 a piece (volume 2 - Season 1 part 2 - runs considerably high at $44 at the time of this write up though).
It has the beginning animation sequance like all other episodes on the two disks and it's in episode music too. It feels like whatever audio problems were in the original release, they have been fixed in this one.
So if you are shopping for a copy of the DVDs, look for this set, the one that has Lion-O in a running pose on the cover with the rest of the thundercats in the background and two disks that are red in color on top.
You'll likely wind up with a better product than what you end up with if you buy one of the original release sets.
I've got dozens of 80's cartoon sets: GI Joe, Transformers, Voltron, He-man, and this is the lowest quality of all. The others show its possible to release a high quality set on DVD but this one feels like a cut-corners money grab. The packaging is cheap (plastic DVD case with sleeve) and the extras are pointless as well.
*Note* The reviews for the 2011 and 2005 box sets seem to be merged together. I'm reviewing the new cheaper (2011) set on 2 discs. However the older (2005) box set has over twice as many episodes for only a little more money making it a better value.

I just received my copy of the two disc 12 episode and loved every minute of it. There was nothing at all wrong with it. The picture was clean and clear. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Amazon Customer
DVD was great. Even though I was hoping this had some enhanced animation. Looks just like it did in the 80's.Published on December 7, 2012 by Mike Aintablian

Indeed - just look at Shout! Factory, who (among many other titles I have no interest in or attachment to):
Transformers (1984 series): complete w/ extras for $109; I think currently a complete set in volumes = $90 ish
Beast Wars - *complete* (52ep) $50 before any amazon discount
