Captain Shiner was one of the first ThunderCats action figures produced in the third series of ThunderCats toys by LJN Toys. The figure was based on the original 1980s cartoon version of Captain Shiner. Standing a solid 6 inches tall, the Captain Shiner 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 Gun.

FeaturesEdit

1. Battle-Matic Action: Like many of the LJN ThunderCats toys, the Captain Shiner figure featured a lever on its back and pushing down this lever with the forefinger would make the figure's right arm move up and down.

2. Poseable limbs and head: The Captain Shiner 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.

AccessoriesEdit

Gun: The Futuristic Ray Gun was made of red plastic with parts painted silver.

In the LJN Dealers' Catalog, Captain Shiner is pictured holding a different type of gun. The gun pictured there was grey and blue in color and had a different design than the one that was eventually produced. This gun was most likely an early prototype which was changed later during production.
