Guest Review > Metron (DC Universe Signature Collection, Mattel)

Metron is one of Jack Kirby’s creations, first appearing in the New Gods comic book series. He’s from the same world (the Fourth World, to be exact) as characters like Darkseid, Orion, and Lightray. He’s meant to be a neutral cosmic observer, but he has been known to choose sides (not always Good), especially if something threatened the entire universe. He’s also the man who invented the “Boom Tube” technology which allows the people of New Genesis and Apokolips to travel great distances across the universe, and he holds the key to Darkseid’s Anti-Life Equation. Basically, Metron is not one to be trifled with.

Guest Review > Mumm-Ra (6″ Thundercats Classics, Bandai)

I previously reviewed the 6″ Thundercats Classic Lion-O figure, and today I’m here to continue in that fashion and review the 6″ Classic Mumm-Ra.

Bandai’s Thundercats toy lines seem to be very hit or miss with the fans, due to several design elements the fans take issue with (and rightfully so), but the general consensus seems to be that the Classic figures are a good attempt at collector-oriented figures.

There have been rumors floating around recently of the new Thundercats cartoon ending and if so, it’s likely that the toy lines would end as well. I, and many fans, certainly hope that isn’t the case, because it would be nice to at least have the main characters in action figure form.

Keep reading to find out if Mumm-Ra is a worthy addition to your Thundercats collection.

Guest Review > 6″ Lion-O (Thundercats, Bandai)

Today we bring you a guest review of Bandai’s Thundercats Classic 6″ Lion-O figure by John Harmon from Mint Condition Customs.

Bandai brought back Thundercats with a thunderous roar last year, with a ton of product based on the new animated series as well as an eight-inch collector line of figures based on the classic looks of the Thundercats. After the first two figures, Lion-O and Tygra, were released, Bandai changed everything and announced that from then on, the Thundercats Classics figures would be in the much more collector-preferred six-inch scale. The first two figures to be released would be a new Lion-O figure and Mumm-Ra.

At first, even several of the six-inch collectors groaned at the news because they had already been sold on the eight-inch figures and didn’t want to have to start all over. Fortunately, that turned out to be a good move, because these figures fit much better on a toy shelf – and Lion-O is a really cool figure.
