HoverCat was one of the first ThunderCats vehicles produced in the second series of ThunderCats toys by Rainbow Toys. The vehicle was based on the original 1980s cartoon version of HoverCat. The HoverCat had action features and could seat one ThunderCats figure.


Battle-Matic Action: The vehicle's main action feature consisted of a giant spinning rotor at its base, similar to its cartoon counterpart. The rotor was controlled by a button located at the rear of the vehicle and pressing it would also result in the HoverCat producing a "Turbo Whirl Sound".

The Hovercat had the capacity to seat only one figure. It's Battle-Matic Action feature did not require any batteries to function.
