    Remember when Mumm-Ra transformed into an evil version of Lion-O in the classic series episode, Fond Memories?…. Well now is your chance to pick up a version of this in action figure form, as Bandai Asia will be releasing the red Lion-O variant at the Singapore Toys and Games Comic Covention taking place between 1st-2nd September 2012! The figure seems to be a repaint of the 8″ Bandai SDCC 2011 exclusive, but still a cool edition to anyone’s ThunderCats collection!

    Be sure to check it out at the The Falcon’s Hangar Booth. For more information on the Singapore Comic Convention please be sure to visit:

    I really wish I could order that. If anyone is going there and willing to pick 1 or 2 up for me, send me a PM and we can work out shipping.

    That said, the picky side of me hates that the ankle joints STILL are not painted to match the boot color.

    I would like to pick up one of these too. Think there is any chance we will be able to order these from the USA without having to pay the markup of ebay?

    would love to add this to the collection !!! but i dont think anyone should purchase bandai items untill they can confirm that the line will carry on! ive contacted them numerous times and no response!! at least i have all the 6" figures but at this point a waste of my time and excitement for this line and a huge waste for bandai to even get the license.

    That might not be the best approach to this. Bandai might be considering results from these kinds of figures to gauge future budgets. So by all means, buy this figure if you like it. Show Bandai that producing one figure per conventions is a good idea. If the line is dead on retail, make it a possibility for internet release like Mattel does. Their business model might not be great, but it's solid.


    I'll gladly buy this figure, and show support for low run convention exclusives, if that's the only way we'll continue to get new Thundercats products.

    Question for those collectors more familiar with the exclusives/limited editions... Is this a fair/normal price for these types of figures? I would like to get my hands on one of these, but at approx. $50 it is a bit hard to pull the trigger.

    Just paid for 2 red lion-os from tan at falcon hanger

    Just wonder how many were made-I heard only 50 but not too sure on that.

    Will be worth something in the future as they will be rare.

    Just hope my figures arrive safely and not damaged.

    ThunderCats are definitely not famous in Singapore. I'd say completely unheard of. I really don't get this.

    I dont get it either, but what a cool collectible at a bargain price imo...
    Almost too good to be true.

    I like Fond Memories a lot and was the last episode for Season 1,still don't fancy so much this Lion-O figure, i'll stay with the original version

    Fond Memories was one of my favorite episodes as a child. There was something about Lion-O facing off against himself that I was an awe of as I was watching.

    Although this it is the same mold with red instead of blue I actually really like this figure. It may be nostalgia, but I think I may try to get this one still.

    I'd say-
    1. eBay they can get 4-5 times as much per figure so don't sell from the site for $48, EG:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bandai-Sing...=&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

    Or 2. There sold out!

    I guess it was worth the initial contact to get them first as looking at the last few that sold on eBay your looking at £50 plus.

    BBTS has them on pre order:

    Picked up two of these bad boyz

    Given the limited amount of Thundercats that were made available between 2011 and 2012-I am grabbing what I can.
