Monkian was one of the first ThunderCats action figures produced by Rainbow Toys. The figure was based on the original 1980s cartoon version of Monkian. Standing a solid 5.5 inches tall, the Monkian 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 Chained Mace


1. Battle-Matic Action: Like many of the LJN ThunderCats toys, the Monkian 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 Monkian 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.Chained Mace: The plastic weapon was made up of a metallic grey spiked ball which was attached to a metallic grey handle by a short length of black colored plastic chain. The Chained Mace was similar in appearance to the one wielded by Monkian on the ThunderCats cartoon show.

2.Helmet: Made of Grey and brown plastic, the helmet was designed to fit snugly onto Monkian's head. It was similar in appearance to the helmet worn by Monkian on the ThunderCats cartoon show.
