The iconic vehicle of the ThunderCats! This is the only Classic ThunderTank collectible rendered since the 1980s (neither Mezco nor Bandai produced a classic ThunderTank) so this is a very welcome addition to the collectibles options for ThunderCats fans.

Note that you will find the scale of this statue and the Cats’ Lair polystone environment are not in line. They aren’t intended to be displayed alongside each other. However, the ThunderTank statue is perfectly scaled to use as a display for the Icon Heroes mini mates, and you can seat the adult cats in the cockpit as if they were designed for this Tank. Be aware that the chances of scuffing the detailed paint job are high, so take care if you do this.

The box packaging is actually shaped like one of the front paws of the Cats’ Lair, this is the garage of the ThunderTank in the cartoon! The designer and sculptor of the piece took great care to render a cartoon accurate version of the ThunderTank which has totally paid off. It’s instantly recognizable as the go-to all terrain vehicle of the heroic cats. Fans of the vintage series will really enjoy this piece.

The reviews of the statue, inluding the one below by Pixel Dan comment enthusiastically about the piece in general.

The statue was sold exclusively through Action Figure Xpress and can still be picked up at specialty toy stores.
