Jackalman was one of the first ThunderCats action figures produced by LJN Toys. The figure was based on the original 1980s cartoon version of Jackalman. Standing a solid 6 inches tall, the Jackalman figure had action features as well as poseable arms, legs and head, thanks to 5 points of articulation. The figure also came equipped with a Club
1. Battle-Matic Action: Like many of the LJN ThunderCats toys, the Jackalman 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 Jackalman 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.
1.Club: The Club was made of brown plastic with a few spikes protruding from the top end. It was designed to fit in the figure's Battle-Matic right hand. It was similar in appearance to the one wielded by Jackalman on the ThunderCats cartoon show.
2.Shoulder Strap: This was composed of soft black leather-like plastic with a bunch of yellow spikes on it. The Shoulder Strap was designed to fit over Jackalman's left shoulder.
1. Series 1: The first series Jackalman was released in 1985. The area on the backing card behind the figure was plain black in color, as with the other Series 1 figures.
2. Series 2: The second series Jackalman was released in 1986. The area on the backing card behind the figure had a white splash. This differentiated it with the Series 1 figures' packing.
2. Series 3: The third series Jackalman was released in 1987. The area on the backing card behind the figure had a white splash. This differentiated it with the Series 1 figures' packing.
