Lately, the ThunderCats have been enjoying a ton of popularity due to their new animated series on Cartoon Network and new merchandise from just about every company around. However, those ThunderCats, like regular cats, are a hassle to have around. They’re always just laying everywhere, yelling “Whiskers!” and cluttering up our joint with mystical swords! Ugh. Well, thankfully our friends at Icon Heroes are giving the ThunderCats their own place to call home with their release of the Cats Lair Resin Environment Statue! Finally we can get those hairy freeloaders off our desks!– Wait, this is a small statue? You can’t fit any actual ThunderCats in it?! Hell. Oh well, it still looks pretty friggin’ great.

Because every hero needs a place to unwind, Icon Heroes created the museum replica of the Cat’s Lair. Made of heavy weight polyresin, this environment statue measures a massive 7.9” wide x 11” deep x 9.5” tall and weighs approximately 6 pounds. A perfect backdrop for your Thundercats station figures, this environment is detailed with towering archways, mechanical like claws, and blazing red cat eyes. The Cat’s Lair is the pivotal training ground, operations base, and sleeping quarters for the Thundercats. Sold exclusively by Action Figure Xpress and limited to only 600 pieces, this individually numbered collectors piece is a rare find.
“We were so pleased with the success of the Action Figure Xpress San Diego Comic Con exclusive Lion-O and Mumm-Ra. We hoped an iconic piece could be the focal point of the collection,” said Pat Wang, President. “With Icon Heroes’ addition of the Cat’s Lair Environment Statue, this collection brings the entire screen to life.”
