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 (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.
