PVC Wilykat

The main accessory included with all the figures was the Bolo Whip which consisted of an orange plastic tube housing a blue string with two orange beads at its ends. There were many variations of the Bolo Whip such as difference in the length of the string and length of the handle as well as different shaped handles. The Tygra figure released by Childbro and some of the Tygra figures released by Rainbow Toys had a Bolo Whip with a black handle instead of the regular orange one.

Some figures also included a PVC Wilykat figure. The PVC Wilykat did not have any articulations or features. When LJN released its second wave of ThunderCats toys, a much larger and fully articulated Wilykat figure was released as a separate toy.


LJN Young and Old Tygra

"Young" and "Old" Tygra figures

Two versions of this figure were produced, referred to as "Young" and "Old" Tygra which are completely different models. The Young version was the first to be produced and was part of the Series 1 Toyline. The Older version appeared from Series 2 onwards. Tygra is the only figure in the LJN toyline to have two completely different designs.

There were at least three different head color variations of the Old Tygra figure. Some had the orange painted nose, others had an unpainted nose and some had unpainted lower half of their hair.
