Thunder, Thunder Thundercats HOOOOO!
on 23 January 2012
It had become the in thing in our house for Dad to sit and watch the recent re-appearance of the thundercats with my 8yo, he finds it hilarous that I remember them from the first time! I ordered the sword just before Christmas, I must admit I was tempted to have a nostalgic wee shot myself but resisted. On Christmas morn I made sure he knew the parcel was from me, I wasn't letting Santa get any credit for this one then sat back in the glow of his ear to ear grin and the familar cry "Thunder, Thunder Thundercats HOOOOO!". Could the sword be longer, yes, could be more sound affects, yes but does he care. no! It now has pride of place next to his Light Sabre.
One button on the side of the handle releases the sliding mechanism for the sword which allows you to swipe the sword to it's full length or pull it open, pressing the release button also starts the "Thunder Thunder" chant which goes on until the button is released when it changes to "Thundercats HOOOOOO!"
Th hilt of the sword also folds in, it is released by arrow shaped button on the middle of the hilt and produces a sword clang, if you hold the button down it launches into the other catchprhase" Sword of Omens give me sight beyond sight" and another sword clang.
Most parents will also be glad to hear there is also a off/on switch right at the end of the hilt.
It's noisy and fun.
