Lion-O or Leono was one of the first ThunderCats action figures produced by Playful Toys. The figure was based on the original 1980s cartoon version of Lion-O. Standing a solid 7 inches tall, the Lion-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 weapons and extra accessories.
1. Battle-Matic Action: Just like the LJN Lion-O, the Playful Lion-O figure had the Battle-Matic lever on its back and depressing this lever with the forefinger would make the figure's Sword-bearing right arm move up and down.
2. Poseable limbs and head: The Lion-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.
1. Sword of Omens: Made of red plastic with the blade painted silver, the sword was designed to fit into the figure's Battle-Matic right hand.
2. Claw Shield: Made of red plastic, the claw shield was designed to snap onto Lion-O's left arm.
3. PVC Snarf Figure: Only some releases of the Lion-O figure came packaged together with a PVC Snarf Figure. This figure was essentailly a mini-statue and had no features or points of articulation. In spite of being similar in design and size as the PVC Snarf that came with the LJN Lion-O, the Playful PVC Snarf was made from an entirely different mold.
Playful vs LJNEdit
Even though the Playful figure used the same basic design of the LJN figure, there were some differences between the two:
1. Light-Up Eyes Feature: The LJN figure had the "Light-Up Eyes" feature while the Playful version did not. For this reason the Playful version did not have a contact point on its back nor it it come with the Power Ring. The Playful figure also had solid eyes.
2. Sword Paint: The LJN figure's sword had the hilt and the eye painted silver as well as the blade while the Playful figure's sword only had the blade painted silver.
