May I present to you, the mysterious and alluring Snowman of Hook Mountain. You might have no idea who this chap is, but behind the mask is a monkey! Sadly you cannot see him in all his glory in the photo, but there is a furry savage face behind the mask. Snowman is a character from the cartoon show 'Thundercats' and was quite an oddity. I used to be obsessed with this chap though, purely because he is so mysterious and barely figures in the programme.
The character became an action figure courtesy of LJN in the late eighties and you can buy him loose from auction sites these days for about two to four pounds. The toy is made from a solid plastic resin and he stands at around six inches in height, making him one of the taller Thundercats. The figure commands presence and authority!
His monkey like face is a joy, creepy looking yet wise and the fur has been textured to a tee with lovely shading on the sides of the face. If you choose to cover him up, you can attach his grey shielded mask which offers him protection from enemies. He also comes with a spear and decent sized shield, so pretty good add ons for the toy.
Snomwna stands out for me because of the wonderful colours LJN used. Smooth pale blues give him that icy look, so he looks just like he could have come from the snow. He also sports some cute boots, padded and furry for all weathers. The toy can be posed at the head, arms and legs and you can have him remove his weapons and mask. Overall, a unique looking toy, very robustly made with stiff joints and a stunning face. A must for 'Thundercats' fans and one of my all time personal favourites from the series.
