One will probably come with his classic accessory pack.

I hope they are not going to try to pass that off as his classic.

I agree for the most part. Even if they don't bring back the feathered mohawk, they did have a picture in the art book of him with a mohawk haircut; probably would've been a slightly better classic default.

Not to keen on it, see he has got his axes back which is great.
Please give him is mowhawk back.
Am quite used to sabres classic out fit now.
Sadira out fit looks a bit like candy from fighting vipers.

It's ok, I guess. I do prefer his classic costume, but more than likely, this will probably be considered his classic costume because I remember back in August of last year when they announced Thunder during their interview, they stated something about his OG costume was considered an offensive stereotype.

So when I heard that, I feel like we won't see that costume anytime soon, even though his regular costume in this iteration of KI is somewhat similar.

Lets keep note my family and I are full blooded Cherokee Indian . One I never got "offended" by the original Thunder I thought he was awesome and memebers in my family did also. Two this biker shaved head crap is a little insulting as far as my heritage I mean a biker REALLY !! . So needless to say I hate his new look

NIGHTWOLF MUCH?

Also beary2006 what do you expect in society nowadays. This is stereotype at its finest man. Native Americans, particularly, are often portrayed as these badass macho men. I understand man, I met people who are native American decent and they don't go around cafes sitting on the table with their biker jacket thinking they are tough shit, no they are normal people like you and I. I don't like this costume because it just goes too far with thunder. At least in the old version it was obvious that he is a native American because of his tory, but it is hardly noticeable because of his wacky Mohawk and the way he fights. I didn't hear no controversy with him during 1994s did you? This costume is ridiculous and like what eclipso said, they better not slide this as a classic costume because it is sure as hell not.

I never thought of the character as offensive.  It never even entered my mind until I heard them say the reason they got rid of the mohawk was to avoid offending Native Americans.  Did anything about the original Chief Thunder bother you or anyone you know? 

BTW, I don't really like the biker look either.

Man, thunder looks like a biker nazi or something. Why couldn't they use his old ki1 outfit like the rest of the cast?

What's mind boggling about the whole situation is that if it seemed offensive, they should've never brought back Thunder because people could say the 2013 version of Thunder is offensive.

He is still similar to his original design. :)

Personally... Think of it this way. He's wearing a bandana which his Mohawk may be an accessory, his jacket or torso will probably be a removable accessory and he's already wearing long pants. You can probably make him look like his classic form but just in the way of changing his gear. I see it as using accessories we canmake him look almost perfect to his classic and they won't get in trouble by making his vanilla model be exactly like his classic and be "offensive". That's my perception. His vanilla items are biker but will more than likely be able to customized to look completely classic. That's my guess.
