Like the bird of prey, it bears a resemblance to and is named after, the anthropomorphic creature with a long beak and a back covered in long brown fur rather than feathers, perches high on a rocky base on the planet known as Third Earth, watching with his shrewd eyes and wielding his staff, or spear, with the tip in the form of claws. Another native derived from the different races of beastly beings, from the planet Plun-Darr, the Iron Studios "Vultureman - BDS ThunderCats - Art Scale 1/10" statue features the cunning and underhanded scientist and inventor member of the ThunderCats` enemies known as the Mutants.
Considered a genius, Vultureman works in his laboratory located in the heart of Castle Plun-Darr, headquarters of the Mutants, creating a variety of gadgets, weapons, and chemical potions for his allies to use against the ThunderCats. Due to his intelligence, he is in constant disagreement and conflict with the other Mutants and their leader Slithe, who blame him for the flaws in his inventions - when their devices or machines don`t live up to expectations. Although ambitious and skilled with electrical, mechanical, and chemical artifacts, Vultureman is the weakest of the Mutants, suffering in combat and one of the funniest characters in animation.
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 in addition to Vultureman, its leader Slithe, and his allies Monkian and Jackalman, 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.
