Today brought some unexpected announcements in the Thundercats space. Firstly a new company has picked up the license; Icon Heroes. Under the terms of the new agreement, Icon Heroes will manufacture 6-inch and under scale statues, vehicle replicas, environments and dioramas all inspired by Thundercats. The statues will be branded as “Staction Figures” (Static Action Figures) and will be non-articulated standing atop a highly detailed environment base. They will be scaled such that they can be displayed individually or alongside other 6-inch action figures and statues. The first Staction Figures scheduled for release are Lion-O, Jackal Man, and Jaga. No images are available yet. You can see the full press release here, on the Icon Heroes website.
The fine folks over at YouBentMyWookiee are also reporting that there will be a SDCC exclusive Lion-O figure. No images are available yet, but this is sure to be one of the hottest exclusives for 2010 SDCC.
