    Nice catch TRG! :thumbsup These Grune can be difficult to spot sometimes due to the poorly-lit EBay photos

    It took me quite a while to pickup my Childbro naked legs haha. Once again, nice eye for the variants. Being in the US I often forget about looking at overseas eBay

    Vintage Lot of 8 LJN Thundercats 1985 Figure MUMM-RA MUMMRA Monkian Telepix RARE
    eBay #112367476909

    This lot contains a surprise in the form of a Glasslite Mumm-Ra! Maybe make an offer of $50 and sell-off the rest? Ofcourse keep the reptile dudes cause they are awesome :)

    I don't remember the story behind it but it's been resold about 3 times already on eBay

    I don't see it on EBay anymore. Looks like the seller has removed the listing.

    Ah, thank for that buddy! For some reason it wasn't showing up on my EBay searches even when I put in the reference number.

    Here's my two cents:
    1. The body is NOT a prototype Slithe body. It's just a standard Slithe figure that has been modified. This is evident by the Battle-Matic Action Lever Slot in the back.

    2. Clearly this is not a ThunderCats figure or even remotely related to ThunderCats since Hasbro had nothing to do with the franchise. My guess (and that's all it is) is that the guy (George Ptaszek) was trying to come up with a design for a character (maybe for a new cartoon show or toy line?) and he had decided on the head/face, but wasn't sure what type of body to use. So, instead of sculpting different bodies, he took existing action figures' bodies and fitted the head onto them to see if any of them work (as seen in the photographs). I know sculptors sometimes do this during the early approval stages so that they can give their clients an idea of what the final toy will look like.
