Pre-production goodness; Astral Moat Monster (unpainted) hard-copy head & wings!
Was the astral from ebay? I saw that and am glad it went to someone who will appreciate it!
Yes, that's te one.. I saw it and I just HAD to have it! :D
Got some new additions, including this BEAST! I've wanted one of these from the moment I knew they existed and now I finally got one; JUMBO Slithe!
This is ofcourse a bootleg. It's a blow mold, has the same ariculation as a LJN Slithe and is 35 cm / 13 inches tall! AWESOME!
Wow, looking good!
Such awesomeness. ^^
Got some more stuff, but most excited about these two: Lion-O & Tygra translucent figures!
These miniatures are from Mexico. They are made from a soft, gummi rubber and stand about 2 inches tall. I've seen more of them on various sites; Panthro, Mumm-Ra, Vultureman, Slithe. The come in all sorts of colors; green, blue, orange. The scultps are very detailed, probably the best I've ever seen. They aren't bootlegs or knock-off's, but original sculpted "toys". My guess is that they were made during or shortly after the Wildstorm mini-series "The Return" came out cause this Lion-O is clearly the Lion-O from that story arc. I love 'em!
So awesome they look!
You find some of the most interesting items! I have never seen anything based on the Wildstorm comics.
Thanks guys! And, finally, he arrived:
I absolutly LOVE this figure! So glad I have one :D
That Evil Lion-O must have cost you a fortune, my friend. But I'm thrilled that you got it to add to your magnificent collection.::D:
Do you have the other two 8" Bandai Lion-O variants? The normal one and the SDCC metallic armor one?
There was an image of Lion-O in reddish gear from the LJN days, but that was obviously a prototype.
Well, the price was fairly decent, if not to say it was dirt cheap:D This is the first TC Classic I own, I'm still loking for a nicely priced SDCC Lion-O. The normal one & Tygra can wait.
Correct, it's on the ThunDerWings box. Seen a lot of customs, wonder if that one, true Red Lion-O will ever pop-up
Some more stuff:
Small puzzle from Argentina
Shreddies/Shredded Wheat cereal premium cards with stickers on the back. (set of 6, so 3 more to go!)
Air Battle Raiders
Leather & wool childrens mittens
Our fellow TCL.org member, 2011thundercats owns that prototype. :D
Here is the thread where he has posted pics of the amazing piece:
Thanks for the info, buddy!
You are most welcome, sir! :D Glad I could help.
Lion-O's hands and belt are miscolored in the Argentina box art.
Great stuff. It never ceases to amaze me all of the merchandise that was created back in the 80's. Man I miss those days!
