The Thundercats Classics line ended far too soon with few characters released. Here's what could have been with a re-sculpt of the Tygra figure.

I started by switching out Tygra's feet with Lion-O's, so he had boots and not bare feet. The entire figure was then re-shaped and re-sculpted. The muscles were made smaller and less defined, and the crotch was made a lot smaller. This means he is now able to be posed feet together, and with his arms behind his back, as he was prone to do in the show. His uniform, gloves and boots were all made with apoxie.

The head was from a beat up original LJN Captain Shiner toy. I hollowed out the inside so it would attach to Tygra's neck (which I extended). I chopped off and re-shaped the jaw, then re-attached it. Then I re sculpted the head over the basic shape of the old one. I changed details such as the ear placement to make him more accurate to the cartoon, and I added a small groove near the left eye which allows him to wear his signature monocle, or to be displayed without.

The gun was completely scratch built using Aves Apoxie.

Wow. Really good. I hope you make more Thundercats like this...looks just like I remember him, is the posability still good?

Yeah, the poseability is fine. He has a larger range of movement in the arms and legs due to making the crotch and biceps smaller. The original fig can't put it's feet together or fold it's arms behind it's back so the hands meet.

Another fantastic cartoon-accurate custom. I can totally hear his voice in my head now. Which kinda creeps me out a bit.
