Thundarr Figures

If this goes well, this post should be accompanied by a picture of the Thundarr figures, which I got a few weeks ago. They are made by Toynami ( and I got them through my good friends at Z's Toys and More, which is just across the road from me here in Seguin.

The sculpts are not very detailed, but this reflects the generally smooth nature of the animation design.
The Thundarr the Barbarian show originally aired 1980-82, and took place in a post-apocalyptic world where mutants, sorcery, and super-science made life interesting and hazardous for Thundarr (a self-freed slave out to fight injustice and evil) and his friends Ariel and Ookla.
The quote on the card: "On an Earth torn asunder by natural disaster, three comrades fight to protect the weak and downtrodden: Princess Ariel, a mighty sorceress; Ookla the Mok, a tremendously strong beast-man whose arrow always flies true; and Thundarr the Barbarian, a courageous and skilled warrior who wields the powerful Sunsword, giving him the edge against evil wizards and foul creatures who seek to destroy him."
