- Fans of the old Archie comics may remember Jagwar, who ended up as part of the Mutanimal team. He never did get an action figure back then, but it seems that his day has come.

Murphy **announced today that Jagwar will be part of the TMNT action figure line next year. And then later he gave us pictures ((**Click)).

"I don't wanna sound ungrateful but that really doesn't look like Jagwar to me... is this going to be the same Jagwar from Archie or is this just some character with that name tossed on him?"

Point well taken. As I explained two posts below, the name Jagwar was indeed applied after the fact. However, when the control drawing of the then-unnamed jaguar character's design first crossed my desk a few months back, my initial thought was "WTF, why doesn't Playmates just make an action figure out of Jagwar instead of coming up with an entirely new jaguar character?"* However, at the time I was too busy to pursue the matter and it slipped off my radar. Last week, when I was hired to write the packaging copy for the character, it wasn't clear whether or not the jaguar was a hero or villain. When I inquired, the question was then posed to me whether or not I'd like to make the character into Jagwar. I did. So, to answer the question above, yes, in effect this is just some jaguar character with the name Jagwar (and accompanying "Archie bio") tossed on to him... thus turning it into Jagwar.

*My second thought had to do with one of the other mutant character designs, that of a villainous Tasmanian devil. Knowing the endangered status of the real Tasmania devil (due to a highly contagious form of cancer that is decimating the species), I felt that the character ought not to be a villain but a hero, hoping to draw a little attention to their plight (however remote that might be) but moreso to not add to the misunderstood "devil" label of the imperiled species. My concern was ignored. .."

Still cool glimpse at the Kitty that is now known as 'JAGWAR' !! ~t
