Fan reaction to Icon Heroes’ line of Classic ThunderCats Minimates has been phenomenal, and Art Asylum has been putting everything they have into their designs for the two-inch mini-figure line. Now, they’ve put together a brand-new box set based on the TV-movie ThunderCats Ho!, and Icon Heroes is making this set more widely available than ever!
Featuring “new” ThunderCats Bengali, Lynx-O, Pumyra and Ratar-O, as well as a non-poseable minifigure of the Berbil named Ro-Bear Bert, this box set is available to all comic shops and specialty store retailers through Diamond Comic Distributors’ Previews catalog. Now available for pre-order, the set will ship in the fall.
The three new ThunderCats in this set – blacksmith Bengali, healer Pumyra and wise, sightless Lynx-O – were introduced in the five-part 1985 movie “ThunderCats Ho!” as three Thunderans who came to Third Earth in the wake of Thundera’s destruction. Ro-Bear Bert was on of the two Berbils who saved the trio from the doomed planet, and Ratar-O was the Mutant commander who sought to capture them for the evil Mumm-Ra.
Pre-order the set today through your local comic shop or favorite online retailer! To find your nearest comic shop, visit comicshoplocator.com!
ThunderCats fans have been lapping up Icon Heroes’ new ThunderCats products like a kitten lapping up milk, and now the company has released a third set in their popular ThunderCats Minimates line. Produced in conjunction with Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum, the Series 3 box set rounds out the main band of Thunderan refugees, with Minimates of Tigra, Cheetara, Wilykit and Wilykat, as well as a mini-figure of RoBear Bill.
Each Minimate stands 2 inches tall with 14 points of articulation, and comes with key character accessories. Tygra comes with his bolo, Cheetara with her staff, and the Thunderkittens with their smoke bombs, lassos and hoverboards. (Did we mention RoBear Bill?) The set is exclusively at Action Figure Xpress (shopafx.com), and while Set 1 with Lion-O, Panthro, Jaga and Mumm-Ra is sold out there, Set 2 with Slythe, Jackalman, Vultureman and Monkian is still available! Check out the images below, and keep an eye out for Series 4!
