    Thanks a lot!

    Here's Jaga:

    The cape is removable and slides in either side of a tube made from part of a pen. The Thundercats logo is attached to a dowel and slides into the tube, held in place with a magnet. This keeps the logo in place, as well as locking in the cape. Both of the heads have a small dowel attached to them too and slide in place through a hole in the neck.

    Jaga looks great! I really enjoy the ingenuity of your engineering using pen parts and dowels. I also like that you made the alternative head sans helmet.

    Thanks. IT only really came together at the end. It's difficut to plan far ahead and you just have to problem solve as you go. I'm glad I came up with something solid that's going to stay together.

    :)

    Here's Silky from "The Garden of Delights" and Tygra with his "tripping on fruit" accessories.

    The fruit attaches to Silky with a magnet and can be moved posed on mutiple leaves. The leaves around Tygras neck are attchaed to thin wire and clip into place.

    Not only is this nicely done (goes without saying at this point), but is also hilarious (in a good way) to me. The facial expression is priceless!

    Cheers. I wanted to make him look like he's having a good time without changing the sculpt. The eyes and mouth are just drawn on card and blue tacked into place.

    Fine, fine work! Jaga looks fantastic, as well as Lion-o. Anxious to see your finished Grune. :)

    Clever using Rei's head for Silkie. ;) Addicted Tygra is an uncommon but neat take on him. Great set!

    Here's Grune:

    The shoulder pads slot into the shoulder joints, which allows the shoulder to move underneath them, and still has decent poseability. The club is made from apoxie and styrene.

    Cheers. I want to finish the line-up of all the Thundercats eventually. I need to find suitable base figures for the kittens. Probably gonna be Lynxo next. It's taken me about a month just to get all of these painted, so I'm gonna have a break for a bit now I've gotten the last of this batch done.

    :thumbsup:

    OK, here's the last of them for now...

    Cheetara:

    Cheetara looks great! What did you use as the base? It seems like she would be quite a challenge.

    She really was. Deciding on the base figure was a pain, as there was nothing I could find to properly match the scale of the other classics. I ended up using a Marvel Legends red She-Hulk for the body, and a Sin City Nancy figure for the head and hands.

    You're custom is really cool. Do you know, there is a prototype of Tygra with this "alternative costume". You can see him in a french bandai catalog.

    I have never seen the french bandai catalog before. That Tygra in the alternative outfit is very cool. As a huge fan of the Bandai line (as well as the LJN) it would be a dream to get my hands on a prototype of that figure! Are you aware of any other pictures of it?

    Edit:
    I knew I remembered seeing that Tygra somewhere. It was used in a Gamestop offer a while back. Obviously they never had that figure in stock but the Tygra, Grune and Slithe were what I can only assume were from an upcoming release or scrapped design.

    Thanks, glad you like them! I hadn't seen the French calalogue, but I did the custom after seeing that figure.

    That's where I originally saw the alternate costume figure.
