At long last ThunderCats are loose again. Not the toys, not a new set of comic books, not a movie nor a new cartoon. But for the first time ever the property has been released in statue form. Revealed at Comic Con 2009, the Lord of the ThunderCats made his striking debut.
Taking a classic pose from the cartoon intro sequence and keeping true to the Rankin Bass design of the mighty Lion-O.
Hard Hero, the company producing the statues received the rights to create the line on their third pitch to Warner Brothers. Others had tried and failed, but eventually fans will get to add these impressive collectibles to their shelf.
The team putting the statues together have worked on other impressive lines such as Conan, Marvel Super Heroes and Transformers. The sculptor working on the ThunderCats series is Paul Bennett who has produced work for the Warclans and Conan lines for Hard Hero.
Hard Hero has the ThunderCats line on license for a limited time so we’re not yet sure how many characters will be produced. This will depend on the sales success of the line.
