Thundercats, ho! MEZCO’S DELUXE LION-O

Thundercats’ LION-O is now a deluxe 14-inch action figure from Mezco Toys.

Wielding the mystic Sword of Omens, the figure measures “over 20 inches tall from the tip of his upraised, extended sword to the soles of his Thunderian boots” and features 7 points of articulation. It captures the look of the hero as he appeared in the hugely-popular (now cult classic) Thundercats series. His window box is collector-friendly and any fan of the classic show will be pleased to add this guy to their display shelves.

Lion-O is already in-stock and ready to ship out, so be sure to place your order and get your hands on him ASAP!

P.S…Just an additional note that we can only ship this product within North America (USA and Canada). We cannot ship this product line to international customers….sorry.

The Governator Soldiers On…In Cartoons, At Least!

Given the recent news about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s separation and secret love-child, geeks were left to question one thing: What about Stan Lee’s Governator?! Comics Alliance has the answer:

Good news, true believers! Even though former California Governor and legendary action film star Arnold Schwarzenegger recently confessed to fathering a child with his housekeeper and lying to his wife, kids, friends and political aides about it for more than ten years, his scandalous actions will not impact the production and broadcast of Stan Lee’s The Governator! The beloved founder of Marvel Comics and creator of many of America’s most enduring superheroes, Lee and his collaborators agree there is no need to make any changes to the forthcoming animated series in which a fictionalized version Schwarzenegger assumes a superhero identity that is secret from his wife and family and operates from a hidden chamber beneath their home. Indeed, The Governator now seems more plausible than ever.

Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife Maria Shriver made international headlines last week when the famous couple announced they would separate after 25 years of marriage. Shockingly, the reason behind the split was the former Governor’s confession that he fathered a child with a housekeeper whom he and his wife employed for more than 20 years.

A collaboration between Stan Lee’s Pow! Entertainment, Archie Comics and A2 Entertainment, The Governator is a forthcoming animated series and comic book in which Schwarzenegger is depicted as a retired politician and actor who adopts a new life of crime-fighting. As Stan Lee made sure to point out in an interview about the project, the title, “The Governator,” is a reference to Schwarzenegger’s having been the governor of California and the Terminator in a series of films.

It seemed ludicrous that that Arnold Schwarzenegger, perhaps one of the 20 most famous people in the entire world, could keep his activities as the Governator secret from the public and from his own family, but recent events would seem to demonstrate that the former Governor is quite the master of subterfuge.

Despite the project’s newfound plausibility, there remains a question of taste with respect to The Governator’s premise — specifically, that Schwarzenegger’s crime-fighting operation is a secret he keeps from his wife and family and one that goes on in hidden caverns beneath the home they share. But A2 CEO Andy Heyward told The Hollywood Reporter that no changes will be made to the series.
“A2’s Governator animated series and its lore is fictional and stands on its merits,” Heyward tells THR. “Of course we wish the family the best in this challenging time.”

In related news, Schwarzenegger’s live-action drama Cry Macho will also proceed as planned. Producer Albert Ruddy told THR the scandal wouldn’t be a “black eye” for the actor and politician.

“This is just another one of those things no one will remember,” says Ruddy, 81. “Bill Clintonwent through horrendous things, and now he’s regarded as one of the most popular presidents. Let he who is free of sin [cast the first stone], right? The only thing that matters is how good the film is. If it fails, they’ll say it’s because of the scandal. If it succeeds, they’ll say in spite of it. It doesn’t matter. The film talks for itself.”

Beyond Cry Macho and The Governator, Schwarzenegger is also seeking to return to The Terminator franchise.
