Thanks to lucky collectors Jason Reilley, rickscoolcollection, and @thunderpunchheman for posting these incredible first in hand images on this long awaited Thundercats ULTIMATES Ghost Jaga by Super7! If you recall in the very first episode of Thundercats cartoon series, the ThunderCats had to flee their planet of Thundera and Jaga sacrificed his life in order to guide the damaged spaceship to safely on Third Earth. Jaga then reappears in his Spirit form and guides Lion-O with his wisdom!

October 26, 2023: Michael’s In Hand Images and Video Review

Thanks to the Super7 distribution being so close to where Michael lives, he got his Ghost Jaga today! To his surprise, he had completely forgot that he ordered one and it was a pleasant surprise. He took some photos and also did a review on YouTube!

Packaging

The outer slip cover for Ghost Jaga is a super cool frosty blue and the way that the light hits the box, it creates a nice rainbow effect! The ThunderCats logo looks like it’s a Spirit which some cool smoke effects radiating from it.

Once the outer slip cover is removed, you can see the amazing packout! He comes with extra hands and two swords. All of his accessories on display and there are no sleeper weapons behind him. The back of the box features an image of Ghost Jaga that looks very realistic! The image is see though, playing into the Ghost aspect of the figure. His bio reads: “Long ago, Jaga served Claudus, original Lord of the ThunderCats. Charged with guarding the treasures of Thundera, he became a mentor to Claudus’s son, Lion-O. During Thundera’s destruction, Jaga led the exodus of refugees. He later sacrificed himself to pilot their flagship to safety to the distant world of Third Earth, yet his spirit continues to guide a now Adult Lion-O, reaching out from the Spirit Realm in times of great need.”

Figure Details

Featuring a ghostly translucent blue appearance, the Ghost Jaga figure is one of the best in the line. From certain angles his body takes on the appearance of a spirit. The translucent plastic is very well done and you can barely see the parts that hold the figure together.

He comes with a new sword that we have not seen in the line! It features a rectangular crossguard with a substantial handle. The white beard really pops on the figure and the black eyes gives the figure some life.

His “Might of the ThunderCats” energy hand has a nice balance of yellow and white. The Sword of Omens is also cast in a while plastic that that is also semi-translucent and, although you can see through it, it’s not a solid white color.

First Release Comparison

The Ghost Jaga figure uses the first release of Jaga and, since Michael had him, he decided to throw some comparison shots in there too!

Ghost-Jaga-Super7-ThunderCats-Ultimates-Exclusive-vs-First-Release

The Ghost Jaga figure, for all intensive purposes, is a repaint/recast of the figure version one figure in translucent plastic but with some differences. For example, the Ghost Jaga figure comes with a new belt, which makes the figure look so much better! The original first release of Jaga could have used a belt as his outfit looks a little plain. The sword of Omens has the eye of Thundera instead of the ThunderCats logo and his cape is a soft plastic cape versus a soft goods, wired cape!

Cartoon Lore

Jaga sadly passed away during the long trip from the crumbling planet Thundera to the their destination, 3rd Earth, which is is the home planet of a wide variety of sentient and non-sentient beings of both native and alien origins. It became the home of the ThunderCats after Thundera was destroyed. Jaga’s spirit appears throughout the cartoon to guide Lion-O and it is amazing that Super7 is paying homage to his spirit form.

Spirit Jaga Thundercats Cartoon

According to Screenrant:

Jaga is the previous Lord of the ThunderCats, who often appears in ghost form throughout the series to offer a bit of wisdom to his successor. But Jaga was more than just a spirit housed in the Eye of Thundera; he was actually alive and well in the first episode of the series.

After being attacked by the Mutants, Jaga decides to pilot the damaged flag ship to Third Earth while his fellow ThunderCats retire to their suspension pods. Unfortunately, the voyage was far too long for the elderly Jaga, and he dies before ever arriving on the new planet. Lion-O becomes Lord of the ThunderCats, and he often relies on Jaga’s sage advice to get him out of sticky situations.

However, Jaga does reappear in his human form in the episode “The Astral Prison,” which features Lion-O venturing into another dimension to rescue Jaga from the evil Nemex. Though Lion-O is eventually able to return to his world and assume his human form, Jaga is forced to remain behind in the astral world.

Jaga’s History

Thanks to the great contributed to the Thundercats Wiki, they have chronicled Jaga’s history:

Jaga-from-Thundercats

Jaga is the mentor and warrior master of all Thundercats. Still in Thundera, Jaga was the leader and founder of the lineage and philosophy of the Thundercats who would defend peace and justice and keep alive the sacred code of Thundera. Jaga was one of the greatest members of the Thunderian council and was also a great, faithful and true friend of King Claudus father of Lion-O. He will indeed be his successor as Lord of the ThunderCats and keeper of the Sword of Omens after Claudus was blinded fighting the Mutants. Jaga was once good friends with Grune until the latter’s betrayal.

Thundercats Wiki

Jaga always took care of and loved Lion-O as if it were a son and at the time of the flight of Thundera he led and protected the Thundercats at all times. A very important factor is that Jaga is the true master of the Sword of Omens where the Eye of Thundera is the greatest source of power of the Thundercats. Jaga is an absolute connoisseur of the real and seemingly endless power of the sword. Unfortunately, he was also indirectly responsible for the destruction of Thundera, for by defeating Ratilla, he seized Plunn-Dar’s sword and cast it into the deepest canyon on Thundera and embedded it in the core of the planet. The sword’s attempts to escape caused the explosive tremors which destroyed Thundera and necessitated the evacuation.

Thundercats Wiki
Jaga Old Thundercats Cartoon

During the exodus from Thundera, Jaga commanded the Royal Flagship of the ThunderCats, manned by Cheetara, Tygra, Panthro, Wilykit & Kat, Snarf and the then 12-year-old Lion-O. After being attacked by the Mutants from the planet Plun-Darr the ship was badly damaged, and while the ThunderCats completed the journey in suspension capsules, Jaga chose to pilot the ship to their new home, knowing that he would not complete the journey. He died just before reaching Third Earth. Jaga’s spirit form appears as a mentor to Lion-O.
