Lion-O or Lion was one of the first ThunderCats action figures produced by Glasslite Toys. The figure was based on the original 1980s cartoon version of Lion-O. Standing a solid 7 inches tall, the Lion-O figure had action features as well as poseable arms, legs and head, thanks to 5 points of articulation. The figure also came equipped with weapons and extra accessories.

ThunderCats Bullet Point FeaturesEdit

1. Battle-Matic Action: Just like the LJN Lion-O, the Glasslite Lion-O figure had the Battle-Matic lever on its back and depressing this lever with the forefinger would make the figure's Sword-bearing right arm move up and down.

2. Poseable limbs and head: The Lion-O figure had 5 points of articulation, 2 at the shoulders, 2 at the hips and 1 at the neck. These points allowed the figure to be posed in a variety of action poses.

ThunderCats Bullet Point AccessoriesEdit

1. Sword of Omens: Made of orange plastic, the sword was designed to fit into the figure's Battle-Matic right hand.

2. Claw Shield: Made of orange plastic, the claw shield was designed to snap onto Lion-O's left arm.

ThunderCats Bullet Point Glasslite vs LJNEdit

Even though the Glasslite figure used the same basic design of the LJN figure, there were some differences between the two:

1. Light-Up Eyes Feature: The standard Glasslite Lion-O did not have the "Light-Up Eyes" feature that the regular LJN Lion-O had. At the back of the figure, the Power Ring contact point was covered up with a light blue plastic "lid" that matched the color of the figure's outfit. However, the Glasslite Lion-O Deluxe Edition did have this feature.

2. Sword Paint: The LJN figure's sword had the hilt and the eye painted silver as well as the blade while the Glasslite figure's sword did not have any silver paint on it.

3. Screws: While the front and back halves of the LJN figures' bodies were glued together, the Glasslite figures were joined together by three screws. Thus on the back of all Glasslite figures are visible three screw holes.

4. Packaging: While the LJN Lion-O was packaged on a card, the Glasslite figure was packaged in an open-front box
