According to Super7’s Instagram page, “You won’t need Sight Beyond Sight! #ComingSoon” They had an illustration of what is clearly Hook Mountain behind a partially color changing Lion-O. We already know that a Hook Mountain version of Lion-O is coming to the ReAction line from the Entertainment Earth and BBTS.
Hook Mountain Lion-O
This color changing Hook Mountain Lion-O is very similar to the Ultimates version in that he also changes color in the sunlight! In the ThunderCats Rankin Bass Cartoon Secrets of the Ice King episode, the Ice King freezes Snowman and then Snowmeow seeks out Lion-O for help and Lion-O also ends up in a frozen state during his effort to rescue his friend. It is then left up to the rest of the ThunderCarts to rescue Lion-O and Snowman.
Lion-O comes with both his open and closed Sword of Omens. He also includes his claw shield.
According to: ThunderCats wiki | Fandom
An old iceberg on Hook Mountain begins to melt, releasing an ancient being known as the Ice King who had been trapped in it for a thousand years. He begins to destroy Snowman‘s castle at the top of Hook Mountain. The Snowman tries to stop him but is frozen solid by the Ice King. Snowmeow, his faithful companion, seeks out Lion-O but upon his arrival on Hook Mountain, he too is frozen solid by the Ice King. Panthro, Tygra and Snarf arrive in the ThunderTank but they too meet the same fate. Only Cheetara is left and she arrives just in time to place the Sword of Omens in Lion-O’s hands, freeing him and he in turn frees the rest of the Cats and the Snowman. After a brief battle with the Ice King, the Cats realize that he is not evil and is just trying to get into the castle to find an ancient egg which has an image of his wife. The ThunderCats help to obtain the egg from the Pterodactyl guarding it and give it to the Ice King. After taking one last look at the image of his queen in the egg, the Ice King melts away.Secret of the Ice King | ThunderCats wiki | Fandom
During a heroic attempt to rescue Snarf from the villainous Ratar-O and Vultureman, Lion-O was dropped from the airborne RatStar. Although he plummeted from a great height, the hero’s fall was broken by the deep snows of Hook Mountain. Knocked unconscious, Lion-O remained buried in a snowdrift as his body took on a frigid, blue coloration. It is fortunate that Lion-O’s good friends Snowman and Snowmeow happened upon him. Snowman succeeded in waking Lion-O, then offered him a flask of mountain herb medicine. Although the beverage tasted awful, it helped to restore Lion-O’s health.
