AFi Focus: @MezcoToyz 14″ #ThunderCats Classics Tygra Mega-Scale Figure
September 22, 2016

Sure Mattel tanked their Thundercats re-launch line after only 6 figures, but that doesn’t mean there’s not still fun Thundercats items to be found out in the world!

Today we are going to take a look at the Mezco Toys 14″ Tygra Mega-Scale action figure.  This figure has been out there for awhile, and now there’s a phasing version, but it’s a great figure and worth taking a closer look.


It’s Tygra, the architect, scientist, and warrior of Third Earth! Featuring 9 points of articulation, this mega-scale figure of Tygra measures 14 inches tall and is superbly detailed, perfectly capturing his iconic look as he appeared in the classic ThunderCats television series. Featuring 9 points of articulation, Tygra expressively flexes his calculated feline ferocity. Sculpted with superb detail and and adherence to the classic television show’s source material this figure also includes his weapon of choice, the powerful Thundarian Bolo-Whip.

He comes packaged in a collector-friendly window box that allows him to be displayed while remaining mint in box if you so choose… but he’s a lot more fun open!



Here he is along side the 14″ Lion-O from the line:


Oh, Snarf….






The figure is still available at places like Amazon and .   Earlier this year this figure was released in a “phasing edition” as a 2016 San Diego Comic Con exclusive.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
