Strange because neither Falcons Hangar or the STGCC website show this figure! Its only a reported news segment on toynewsi that shows the figure. If it is real then Bandai must have had a load of toys r us exclusives left over and re-painted them red. Kind of like releasing the same music album but adding one bonus track and calling it limited

b3rgkamp10,
can you confirm if this is just a repaint or molded in red?

Well then, the next and most obvious question I believe would be; Will US fans get a chance at ordering these online somewhere after the convention?

Probably not directly. You'll likely have to pay mark-up prices from online stores that get them from the show itself or from buying them at show cost. There will always be ebay.

That's what I figure being that this is taking place in Singapore. Honestly I don't see myself shelling out too much for a repainted figure. IMHO the 6" Lion-O with the angry face would have been a better suited candidate for "Evil Lion-O". Still, it is nice to see Bandai doing something exclusive for that convention.

Anyone knows if they will release the rest of the 8" figures? Being left with a Lion-o and a Tygra was no funny at all... and to be sincere making it up with an exclusive "repaint" it is definitely not for me.

This is being done by Bandai Asia, not Bandai USA. Pretty much completely different operations.

But basically, don't plan on seeing any new 8" figures, or new 6" classics for that matter.

I'll keep my eyes pointed at all the normal outlets. If somewhere like Past Generation Toys, BBTS or Entertainment Earth post it, I'll pop the news up on the frontpage.

They opted on having the figure in the windowed packaging instead of the SDCC exclusive box version which means the sword, dagger and sword stand will be in a separate baggie apparently. They'll be at the convention on saturday

Just got a reply from The Falcon's Hangar about this item! They did set some aside for those who inquired via email and will send a Paypal invoice for the item, plus shipping. The total, with shipping, was about $52 in U.S. funds!!! :]

$52 just seems ridiculously high for a repaint of a toy that doesn't even sell for $8 anymore on pegs at Wal-Mart and Target...

People will pay it though. Purely because of the limited edition sticker and the different backing artwork. Didnt vintage MOTU package a He-man with a jet sled or something and now its ridiculously collectible?

50+!?!?!? That just seems silly at this point. Yes I am a completist, but for that same value, you can buy something vintage, even a lower rate guy like hachiman moc.

If it was 30, I would snatch it up, but meh... if its dead, theres almost no point. Something to think about in the future though.

Its $52 shipped. From Singapore thats gunna be over $12 just for flatrate shipping. Do the math and youre paying around $39 for the figure. When the sdcc toys r us version was released, it was $39.99 + shipping. With this version you get basically the same accessories as the sdcc version, with the chrome plated swords and a weapons stand(in red this time). This figure was never released in the original line and I think its really awseome that they made this figure with the tooling they already had, since the line is dead and no new molds will be made at this point. I think money is no object for true fans and collectors. Get it or don't get it, just don't cry about it when they're $200 on ebay and you missed a chance of getting it retail price. It's evil Lion-o guys...come on.

I would love to get one of these, but $50+ is hard to swallow even for a limited quantity.

I'd pay like $30 shipped....tops. This is such a weird rarity and probably not many people know about this version that it's not worth much. To me at least.

Looking at that auction, Id probably do 40 TOPS. Its pretty nice, and it comes with 2 sets of swords. But yeah, its just Lion-O again.

Yeah, I did the math. I paid $15 for my first one and then $7 for my second one to keep in package. I thought the SDCC version was overpriced as well, so I didn't get that. Yeah, I'd like to have the crome sword, but not at that price. If I really want an evil Lion-O in a scale that I'll never have other figures in, I'll pick up a discount regular Classics 8" and paint it myself. Actually, the 6" Classics would make a better evil Lion-O, IMHO... maybe I'll pick one of those up and do a repaint myself. Fun project, better finished product, and a heck of a lot cheaper. I don't see this one being worth a lot way down the line. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm willing to take that risk.

The SDCC one was only worth it because it was the first official thundercat in action figure form in over 25 years.

The Red Lion O only made it to LJN Hard copy stage so i personally think its cool that we have a Red one in production. If price is an issue with people i guess dont buy it. All adds to the history of the various toy lines

Kind of a bummer only 50 were made available. Since I doubt Bandai has any plans to continue the classics line (especially the 8" line), I really have no desire to own this in the least.

I had a reply from falcons hangar regarding the red/evil lion-o. They sent me an invoice to paypal which I have payed, and I have just got my reciept to say that they are on the way (works out at about 32 pounds per figure for those of us in the uk which I dont think is too bad considering the distance of the shipping and that the regular 8 inch lion-o retails at around 15 pounds in shops depending on the area)

Cant wait for them to arrive .. I ordered 2 for possible future investment just incase it becomes a holy grail type thing in years to come and then I can flog one and keep the other .. (Aaaargh but does that not make me as low as the common scalper ... I can see myself getting some hate for this greed but I completely deserve it lol)

Well the allotment of 50 is just for the save Thundercats group on Facebook. Its still coming from the Falcon's Hanger and they're getting a special rate of $48. Since the Falcon's Hanger is selling them on their own for $52 theres more than just the 50 available. I doubt we'll ever get a number of how many there are total but I figure its got to be the rarest produced piece from the new line.

I agree, this could be the rarest new figure, especially since its an foreign exclusive. That ebay auction is still climbing at $126.50 and there is over 3 days to go. Glad I ordered mine. I'm so happy I found this forum.

Wow! I am shocked that the price has jumped so high on that. Like grune7 said we probably wont find out how many of these were made, but I would be very interested to find out. Anyone know how many of the SDCC Lion-O's were made?

Knowing our mass product producing friends in East Asia id say that they are just made to demand. Most factories will produce a minimum of 5000 units but they can vary PLUS of course these molds had already been made, they just used different coloured plastics.
That ebay auction is 126usd with 3 days left and the vendor is on holiday until sept 15th! lol
