Featuring 7 points of articulation this mega figure is superbly detailed, perfectly capturing not only the iconic look of Lion-O as he appeared in the classic television series, but the essence, of Lion-O as he proudly raises the mystic Sword of Omens towards the heavens and roars out “Thundercats, Ho!” He comes complete with his impressive Claw Shield and a removable mystic Sword Of Omens.

Lion-O is packaged in a collector friendly window box that allows him to be displayed while remaining Mint In Box.

In an move sure to thrill fans,<> is teaming up with  MTV Geek for a  giveaway that is unprecedented. Says Mezco’s Director Of Special Projects, Mike Drake, “Mezco will be supplying MTV Geek with not only a Lion-O to use as a  Give Away, but the Lion-O prototype/ test shot as well. Mezco’s prototypes / test shots are highly sought after by collectors and many end up displayed in museums, our King Kong has a dedicated display case in NY’s prestigious Museum Of The Moving Image. We actually turned down the requests of three museums so that we could supply Lion-O to MTV Geek for this  giveaway”.
