    Good panther toy to use for Filmation Catra?

    Howdy friends,

    For years I've wanted to have an articulated Catra as Panther toy to include with my vintage POP collection. I doubt we'll get one from MOTUC, and if we did, it would probably be too large to fit the classic POP scale anyhow.

    Have you ever seen an articulated (as in, moving legs) panther figure that you thought could be repainted and turned into a POP-styled Catra?

    And no...I'm not suggesting Panthor, cause that toy is just too big. It need to look like it can take She-Ra down...not EAT her!

    I did something similar (but not articulated cat) for Shower Power Catra, so maybe you can get some inspiration from this:

    Okay, THAT is one cool cat!! I love seeing that kind of creativity here on the Org. You totally translated her look into feline form. Kudos!

    I think I might have to browse dollar stores or something to find an articulated kitty that might work...how big is yours?

    Thanks! This cat after I change her ears (made them bigger/higher) is 8 cm high and 14 cm long. But I am not sure that you can find cat that small but with articulations. I wasn't looking for articulations since it is vintage custom as none of the cats or horses from vintage line has them.

    It's small, a little too small, but I used this for the longest time a Mcdonalds' Catwoman's cat from 1993 IIRC. It was in the Batman The Animated Series style. Not articulated, but the pose is peeeeerfect. (sorry I couldn't resist!)

    I've never seen it in person, but Mattel's old Disney Tarzan line had a leopard I always thought might fit in with a little work. It even has a slashing action feature. Looks like there is a Gygor possibility too.

    Lion King had a few (obviously) but they would need way more work. Aladdin's tiger also, but it only has head articulation.
    IT'S BEEN A LONG CRAZY RIDE SINCE 2008!

    That Sabor looks like it would be a great choice. Mantisaur, what a cool Shower Power Catra in cat version. Love it!

    Lady Angora has a great picture of a Princess Tenko cat two-thirds of the way down the page: http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...CTION!!!/page5

    If you google "Princess Tenko Ninjara" you'll see some great pictures of her in the package.

    I have one of these (minus the headdress) that I use for my Shower Power Catra. It has a softer look than Battle Cat, which I think works well with the vintage line. They occasionally come up on eBay, and I've been contemplating getting another and doing some pink shading on her to make her even more like Catra. She isn't articulated, though she is a little smaller than Battle Cat.
