Slithe or S-S-Slithe was one of the first ThunderCats action figures produced by Glasslite Toys. The figure was based on the original 1980s cartoon version of Slithe. Standing a solid 5 inches tall, the Slithe figure had action features as well as poseable arms, legs and head, thanks to 5 points of articulation. The figure also came equipped with the Battle Axe
1. Battle-Matic Action: Like many of the LJN ThunderCats toys, the Slithe figure featured a lever on its back and pushing down this lever with the forefinger would make both the figure's right arm move up and down.
2. Poseable limbs and head: The Slithe 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.
Battle Axe: The plastic weapon had a long brown handle with a silver blade at its end. The Battle Axe was similar in appearance to the one wielded by Slithe on the ThunderCats cartoon show.
Glasslite vs LJNEdit
Even though the Glasslite figure used the same basic design of the LJN figure, there were some differences between the two:
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.
