Vultureman was one of the first ThunderCats action figures produced in the second series of ThunderCats toys by LJN Toys. The figure was based on the original 1980s cartoon version of Vultureman. Standing a solid 6 inches tall, the Vultureman 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 Clawed Staff
1. Battle-Matic Action: Like many of the LJN ThunderCats toys, the Vultureman 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 Vultureman 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.
Clawed Staff: Made of a grey plastic the Clawed Staff was designed to fit either into one of the figure's hands or be held by both hands.
1. Series 2: The second series Vultureman was released in 1986. The area on the backing card behind the figure had a white splash. It came with the purple and black front LJN Mini Catalog.
2. Series 3: The third series Vultureman was released in 1987. The area on the backing card behind the figure had a white splash. It came with the orange and yellow front LJN Mini Catalog.
