With the launch of the new ThunderCats animated series in 2011 came a renewed interest, from fans and toy manufacturors alike, in the classic ThunderCats. The vintage ThunderCats toys are fantastic, but cartoon accurate is a bit of a stretch. For years (adult) collectors wondered when and if toon accurate ThunderCats figures were ever going to be a reality. Luckily a little toy company called MEZCO TOYZ stepped up. In 2011 Mezco Toyz released their first 14” Mega-Scale ThunderCats figure in the form of Lion-O. This figure set the standard for the rest of the releases up to 2014, in terms of size, style and articulation. Fast forward to 2016 and fans are finally getting what they’ve been waiting for; Tygra! And ofcourse Mezco being Mezco, they deceided to make a regular and a SDCC exclusive version.

To date Mezco Toyz released five regular figures, one regular 2-pack,  two convention exclusive 2-packs and two single exclusives. And a plush Snarf!

mtvgeeklogoBack in 2012, our friends at MTV Geek gave us a little behind the scenes look at the guys and gals at MEZCO TOYZ working on several ThunderCats figures. The exclusive article introduces us to Mezco’s Pierre Kalenzaga, Damien Glonek, painter Brandy Anderson and sculptor Jean St. Jean. Short, but insightful and just a darn good read! Check it out!

The MEZCO ThunderCats figures come packaged in a full colour, collector friendly, windowbox. The artwork on the boxes seems to stem from a modern ThunderCats poster that popped-up on online marketplaces a few years back. Since the MEZCO line is at a standstill right now, we can at least check out some of the artwork that may have been used for other figures!
