Lynx-O 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 Lynx-O. Standing a solid 6 inches tall, the Lynx-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 the Shield


1. Battle-Matic Action: Like many of the LJN ThunderCats toys, the Lynx-O 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 Lynx-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. The figure also had a poseable tail.

Shield: Similar to its cartoon counterpart, Lynx-O's shield is a circular grey disc with a red star-shaped piece at its center.

Interestingly, in the LJN Mini Catalogs, the shield that the Lynx-O figure is shown holding is quite different from the one that was produced. The shield in the catalog was metallic with a circular disc in the center colored red and black.
