With thick white fur covering his neck and shoulders, a muscular ape-like figure of limited intellect leaps between boulders and rocks in the arid terrain of Third Earth, wielding his Morning Star Mace, a weapon he wields deftly. He protects his left flank with his shield, used for both defense and offense, capable of shooting projectiles. In this way, Iron Studios presents its "Monkian - BDS ThunderCats - Art Scale 1/10" statue with the clumsy monkey and general of the Mutants, a group formed by different races of animalistic humanoids, which are among the enemies of the ThunderCats.
Leader of the race of Monkians, from the planet Plun-Darr, and one of the main members of the evil gang known as the Mutants led by the reptilian Slithe, Monkian is a great warrior, gifted with solid strength and quick reflexes. His limited intelligence and stupidity also make him, in many moments, a comic relief, acting without thinking, moved by emotion, not rational thought, which makes him the protagonist of many funny situations. Thanks to his athletic abilities of climbing, jumping, and swinging in the treetops, he can move around, covering great distances in a short time, and so he is responsible for reconnaissance missions. Unfortunately, Monkian`s ignorance jeopardizes the Mutants` plans to defeat the ThunderCats in many cases.
Created by Rankin/Bass, ThunderCats was one of the most successful animated series of the 1980s, with three seasons totaling 130 episodes. Expanding the collection of statues in the line based on characters created by Tobin "Ted" Wolf, after the previously released heroic ThunderCats gained prominence with individual pieces that form a diorama backdrop, Now it`s the turn of the mutant villains to join forces with the mummified sorcerer Mumm-Ra (already available) in the composition of a scenario that will bring besides Monkian, their leader Slithe, and allies Jackalman and Vultureman, as well as the canine Ma-Mutt, Mumm-Ra`s mascot, in new Art Scale 1/10 statues from Iron Studios, available individually. The statues were unveiled at the annual Inside Iron Studios: Second Edition virtual event during CCXP Worlds 2021 at the Worlds to Collect arena.
