Woo-hoo! Another custom of mine hits ToyFare, this time in issue #116. It's Lion O from the Thundercats! I was asked to create him without any particular artist style but true to the classic animation, kinda like the new He-man line. LionO was created from a ToyBiz Face-Off Sabretooth body, Mattel DCSH Superman Head, ToyBiz Series 10 Angel forearms/hands, and ToyBiz FF Super Skrull lower legs/feet. His mane of hair and leotard borders were sculpted with Aves Fixit Sculpt. The Sword of Omens were made from Moore Lady Death swords with resculpted hilts. LionO’s claw shield was made from a Sabretooth forearm and the paw from a Stan Winston’s Realm of the Claw figure sculpted together, along with some small rhinestones. A belt made from rubber craft foam with wire trim tops off LionO’s design and he’s been painted with Testors Fantasy Series paint. “Thunder! Thunder! THUNDERCATS HO!!”

So does that claw shield slip over his arm or do you have to swap parts on him to get it on?

Oooo pretty!!! If they ever did an updated Thundercats line I would hope they would look that cool!
I really do like it, you can tell because I used exclamation points. I normally don't use those.

Thanks! I don't have my ToyFare issue yet so these were the only pics I had of the fig to use. I forgot to take finished pics of him on the black background! That brings out all the definition and shading.

I just saw this in TF and that picture doesn't do this figure justice. This has got to be one of my favorites, just because I love the show. You did a bang up job on capturing the feel of the character.
