Kind of a hangover here from my Alternate starwars customs. I would think whilst doing them, what if I did an alternate Thundercats line? Anyhoo I was thinking about it for quite some time and finally the inspiration hit me in the shape of Dead bodies everywhere. Yes Zombieforhires trade list. Just sat there on the second pic I saw him and instantly thought PANTHRO!! So after an awesome trade with Z4Hire work began......

Here's his story:
After the Thundarians escaped their dying planet they went into stasis. During their stasis Jaga, (who had stayed awake to pilot the ship), became very old and very frail. It was inevitable that he would soon pass. After he died the ship was left pilotless and crashed into a red planet just near third earth. However, before the ship crashed the stasis pods were ejected into space. Each pod scattered from the stricken ship in different directions. Panthro's pod was first to land on a planet. It was a kind of earth, an earth that had been taken back in time to the 1950s. Panthro found there were not many avenues of work available for a grey skinned cat human on this planet. So he turned to the only people who would accept him in order to make a living. The mob and they paid well too. He soon learned that the code of thundera would not serve him well in this environment but one day he knew he could preach the code to his fellow gangsters. He quickly became known as an awesome mechanic and he was the go to man with any mechanical problems. This is not the only reason for his nickname "the fixer", he is also highly adept at clean up jobs and isn't afraid to muck in with his modified tommy gun or his massive nunchucks.

Whilst I do plan to do the rest of the cats, I am waiting for the inspiration to hit me for the next one. I really want to do them all in a different style like maybe 60s Tygra (free love man!!) or caveman Lion-O, I dunno just waiting for the inspiration. Cheers again for the comments guys!!!!!

Toxin Venom - sorry pal but this one's going nowhere . Thanks for the comment though glad you like him
Bobtheodd - yeah was a tad unsure myself about turning Panthro evil but I Kinda figured the mob lives by a kind of code so it might just work.
