PowetToys: 2010 Year in Review

The year is wrapping up and I figured that this would be the perfect time to take a look back at some of the year’s highlights.
Think I missed an announcement or important piece of news? Discuss it in the comments! I love to hear what you all have to say.

There are a couple of images that don’t appear to have been encoded properly by YouTube during the Highs/Lows segment. The original video was fine and I could not upload it again to YouTube because they said it was a dupe. Imagine the Battle Beast Minimate with a caption of “I want to buy you!”

SDCC 2010: Icon Heroes – Thundercats

Icon Heroes was present at SDCC to show off their new Thundercats line of mini-statues. has a small gallery of what was on display from Preview Night. They had the Lion-O staction, both the SDCC Exclusive and regular version on display along with the new Thunderclaw vehicle staction. It comes with another Lion-O mini-statue as a driver and is in scale to the rest of the line, meaning it is quite large. I have included a size comaprison photo from the company’s site for reference with the Thunderclaw next to the regular release Lion-O 6 inch mini-statue. Also on display was a fully painted Jackalman staction and an unpainted prototype of Lynx-O. I like what I’m seeing from this line. Its unfortunate they were unable to obtain the actual toy license for this property instead of settling on a mini-statue license.

SDCC and regular Thundercats Lion-O statue pictures

Icon Heroes has updated their blog with both new images of the upcoming regular release of the Lion-O mini-statue and their SDCC variant. The SDCC variant features the short version of the Sword of Omens as well as a desert environment base, while the regular release features the full length sword and a jungle environment base.

I am really digging the packaging on that SDCC variant.

Pictures of the two are after the jump! Let us know how you think they turned out.
