Coming in June of this year, MUMM-RA is now pre-orderable. From the hugely popular mainstream-turned-cult-turned-mainstream THUNDERCATS comes a brand new 14-inch rendering of Thundercats nemesis MUMM-RA the Ever-Living.
Mezco’s behind this great figure, so you can bet it’s going to be a high-quality piece. Known for their awesome sculpting and design (if not for their articulation), Mezco has created a ton of truly impressive characters. So if you’re a Thundercats fan looking for a good piece to add to your display shelf, this is a great buy and a great choice.
ThunderCats leader LION-O is featured here sporting his classic look as a dynamic 8-inch figure! An SDCC 2011 Exclusive, it’s a great throw-back for those who have loved the character and his world for a long time or a great place to start if you’re a new fan of the 2011 show.
The figure is from Bandai and is highly-detailed, featuring a full 18 points of articulation to allow for some pretty awesome poses. What sets this one apart as an exclusive, though, is its selection of accessories: a sword stand for the Sword of Omens (in two sizes), the Claw Shield and an additional hand. There’s also the paint job, which gives Lion-O’s armour a great metallic shine.
Mattel has released two different 8 inch figures from the Thundercats line for this year, 2011. This assortment includes the following figures:
Lion-O 8 inch Action Figure
Tygra 8 inch Action Figure
THUNDERCATS figures are now ready to ship out! The first three out of the gate are Lion-O, Panthro and the evil Mumm-Ra at a 6-inch scale. Each one looks absolutely great and is loyal to their original designs. These are real treats for fans.
And following that, you can grab Lion-O and Tygra as 8-inch figures, wielding the Sword of Omens and a cat-o-nine-tails respectively.
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.
Thundercats (2011) will feature the new adventures of the characters we already know: Lion-O, Panthro, Tigre, Chita, Feline and Feline. According to the articles I’ve read online, the new Thundercats will appeal to fans of the classic and the new generation who know little or nothing about the original. This reboot narrates the rise of Prince Lion-O to the throne and those who want to impede his destiny. The forces of good and evil clash in the search for the Stones of Power, while both Lion-O and its champions learn lessons of loyalty, honor and mortality. Swords, science, and fierce battles will result in a new version that takes on epic proportions.
The redesign of the characters take on the characteristics of anime, recovering its original elements. Lion-O is a more youthful, like Chita. Panthro gives a slight air Beast and Tigre is about the same. The new Lion-O does look pretty cool and I hope they keep to the original story. What do you think?
There are a ton of new THUNDERCATS figures heading your way at 8- 6- and 4-inch sizes. If you’ve got a favourite character, then you should definitely check out the whole collection to see if they’ve been immortalised in plastic at last. Bandai has truly outdone themselves on this outing. Take a look at the three new sets!
Four inch versions of Lion-O, Tygra, Cheetara, Wily-Kit, Wily-Cat, Mumm-Ra and Panthro can be purchased as a complete set or individually. Their designs are based on the latest incarnations of the Thundercats team.
More classic versions of Lion-O, Panthro and Mumm-Ra are available at the 6-inch scale. They come with weapons and feature some very awesome original design work.
Lion-O and Tygra look as awesome as you remember and they come at the classic 8-inch scale, too. With a ton of articulation and a size that begs you to display them proudly on your toyshelf, these would definitely be the ultimate figures for a Thundercats fan were it not for THIS.
It’s a good time to be keen on the Thundercats. On top of the fact that a new show is going to be hitting the airwaves soon, some new footage has just leaked, revealing what would have been a test for a CGI Thundercats film. And though this might never come to be, you can take a look at it here:
And if that’s not enough (could it ever be?), we just got something new from Mezco and it’s a stunner!
The 14-inch LION-O figure will be shipping in July but you can pre-order now! Holding the Sword of Omens high, he features about 7 points of articulation and is packaged in a window box that’ll please collectors.
