If you’ve been collecting Super7’s ReAction Figure ThunderCats line and were hoping for some new characters, Wave 5 isn’t it. However, if you love old-school gimmicks like color-changing skin or glow-in-the-dark plastic, you’re in luck! ThunderCats ReAction Figures Wave 5 includes Tygra (Invisible), Mumm-Ra The Ever Living (Glow), Ghost Jaga & Hook Mountain Lion-O.
I don’t know what’s up with the eyes on Lion-O in that promotional shot, but he looks like the host of Cynical Reviews. Did Lion-O bet on a fart and lose? What is this face?!
The renders look way better, but if this is the final product … wow. At least he comes with a color-changing feature. He’ll get less flustered once he changes his ThunderPants. Sure, I’ll pay $20 for that.
The rest of the figures are your standard ReAction fare. Jaga once again reappeared with ghostly translucent blue skin. The last time we saw this figure was when he got the same treatment in the Ultimates line.
Tygra is cast in clear plastic, and so is his bola weapon, which is a nice touch. Hopefully, this plastic won’t yellow over time.
Mumm-Ra The Ever Living gets the standard glow-in-the-dark gimmick. However, it would have been better if Super7 had used incandescent blue rather than green.
Each figure is $20, or you can, as usual, order the whole wave for $80. They’re available right now!
If you’re wondering about the Hook Mountain Lion-O, he features the same thermal reactive plastic as the Ultimates version. Yes, it works, but eventually the process stops working. You’d know what I mean if you had the original G.I. Joe Zartan figure. However, if you want to get the Ultimates figure at a discount, Lion-O is only $42.99 from Best Buy.[Source: Super7]
