Mezco Teams with MTV for Lion-O Giveaway

Mezco and MTV team Up For Amazing Lion-O ThunderCats™ MTV Geek Giveaway

July 2011 - NY - Mezco Toyz thrilled fans of ThunderCats this year at the world famous New York International Toy Fair this year when they announced they would be making the first ever Mega Scale Lion-O ThunderCats action figure.

This mega-scale figure measures over 20 inches tall from the tip of his upraised, extended sword to the soles of his Thunderian boots.

Featuring 7 points of articulation this mega figure is superbly detailed, perfectly capturing not only the iconic look of Lion-O as he appeared in the classic television series, but the essence, of Lion-O as he proudly raises the mystic Sword of Omens towards the heavens and roars out "Thundercats, Ho!" He comes complete with his impressive Claw Shield and a removable mystic Sword Of Omens.

Lion-O is packaged in a collector friendly window box that allows him to be displayed while remaining Mint In Box.

In an move sure to thrill fans, MezcoDirect.com is teaming up with MTV Geek for a giveaway that is unprecedented. Says Mezco's Director Of Special Projects, Mike Drake, "Mezco will be supplying MTV Geek with not only a Lion-O to use as a Give Away, but the Lion-O prototype/ test shot as well. Mezco's prototypes / test shots are highly sought after by collectors and many end up displayed in museums, our King Kong has a dedicated display case in NY's prestigious Museum Of The Moving Image. We actually turned down the requests of three museums so that we could supply Lion-O to MTV Geek for this giveaway."
