Safari Joe was one of the first ThunderCats action figures produced in the third series of ThunderCats toys by Rainbow Toys . The figure was based on the original 1980s cartoon version of Safari Joe. Standing a solid 6 inches tall, the Safari Joe 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 Gattling Gun


1. Battle-Matic Action: Like many of the LJN ThunderCats toys, the Safari Joe 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 Safari Joe 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.
