ThunderCats PrototypesAs many LJN and Thundercats toy fans know, LJN had an habit of advertising future toys before they were on the manufacturing floor. Due to this, items such as weapons that appeared in early catalogue pictures were different to what turned up on shop shelves. A good example of this is Cheetara’s baton. This was a red colour in the first LJN catalogue, but when available to buy it had been changed to the orange colour we know of today!

Then there are the toys that were advertised, but never produced to buy in any form. The  mini catalogs released with the toys, depicted planned releases, such as The Mad Bubbler and The Feliner , that would only reach Prototype stage.
