SDCC 2023 Preview Night is in full swing, and images of the preproduction sample Cat’s Lair was in a glorious display in Super7’s SDCC Booth! This Cats Lair playset has been teased for weeks and it is amazing to see the actual playset in all its glory. The images of this playset is epic!!!! We are totally blown away at the amazing details, multiple play zones and world building diorama that the new Cat’s Lait playset brings us! The Cat’s Lair crowdfunding campaign also kicked off and is already getting so great backer numbers! If you want to back the Cat’s Lair, you can visit: ThunderCats Ultimates! – Cats’ Lair – Super7. Thanks to Collider.com for these incredible images!

UPDATE: 09/18/2023: Pre-Orders Closed

Congradulations to all of you who backed the Cat’s Lair, you are now part of Toy History! You will be the proud owner of a holy grail playset that only a select few will own! After a long crowdfunding campaign, the Cat’s Lair got funded and was able to unlock the Tier 1 Bonus of Tygra’s lab. With 4223 Backers as of the writing of this update, it looks like we feel short of the 5000 backers needed to unlock Tier 2 Astral Projection Lion-O. It’s kind of sad to see that left behind, and you can see it has been greyed out in the final tally of Bonus items. We should be super excited that the campaign did as well as it did, but it is still disappointing that we missed out on that really cool translucent Lion-O figure. Perhaps, Super7 will offer him as a separate item for sale sometime in the future.

Seeing the real thing, I have to tell you I am totally blown away of how absolutely epic this playset is! The texture on the torso of the Cat’s Lair is made to look like stucco, while the head and claws looks like they are made of a blue metal! The ThunderCats symbol on the chest and eyes are translucent and light up! The texture on the mountain backdrops look incredible as well! The claws lift up to reveal gun turrets!
