)-- Captured as he transforms from a wretched corpse into a bloodcurdling force of terror, Mumm-Ra lunges off the screen and into your collection. The figure is designed to depict the villain’s ferocity with burning eyes, a billowing cape and draping bandages and measures 9”h x 11”w x 2.5”d on base. The gate-fold window box packaging is fit for any collector, featuring a special diorama insert of Mumm-Ra’s Tomb Fortress.
As a special bonus, every Mumm-Ra the Ever-Living staction figure purchased at SDCC will come with an exclusive, never-before-available free gift - the Ma-Mutt staction figure. Measuring 3.5”h x 1.5”w x 2.5”d on base, this figure of Mumm-Ra’s faithful companion captures his ferocious snarl while in attack mode.
“With the upcoming release of the new ‘ThunderCats’ series on Cartoon Network, we wanted to help fans experience the nostalgia of the classic animation,” said Rose Wang, president, Icon Heroes.
The Mumm-Ra staction figure, along with the SDCC-exclusive Ma-Mutt companion figure, will be available for $40 exclusively at the Action Figure Xpress booth, #3345.
