Panthor was released in wave 3 (1984) of the classic toyline. Panthor was identical to the battle cat mold (a recast of the Tarzan panther and Big Jim tiger toys), he included Battle cat's saddle, in very dark green, but not the helmet. The toy was covered with flocking to give it a soft "fur" texture.
The 2002 Panthor was released in wave 1. He was the same mold as Battle Cat with a unique head. He featured similar articulation and had the same button to make him strike. 2002 Panthor had his own unique armor with mounted missile launchers. Like his 1984 counterpart, Panthor was again flocked.
The 2011 Panthor used same mold as Battle Cat with a unique head. Unlike previous editions, 2011 Panthor was not flocked. The 2011 Panthor also included an all new helmet, The look for Panthor's new helmet was inspired by Skeletor's Havok Staff.
