Funko is partnering with DC Comics and Amazon to release a line of action figures originally designed for the 1980’s. DC Primal Age was a line of toys that envisioned iconic DC superheroes existing in a barbaric universe. Think of this as the ultimate DC – Masters of the Universe crossover and you get the idea. The toyline was never produced and a rumored comic book tie-in project penned by Marv Wolfman went unpublished. But now at last the toy line has gained a second life.
Primal Age was recently discussed on the DC Daily show on the online DC Universe streaming service and now Funko is producing the line of eight action figures which includes a Hal Jordan figure along with Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, the Joker, King Shark, Mr. Freeze and the Scarecrow. Even a beastly Ace the Bathound and Joker inspired riding mount are being produced along with the requisite Bat Cave playset.
To top it off a Marv Wolfman penned comic book series will also be published and sold exclusively by Target. Whether this is an all new script or based on what he wrote in the ’80’s remains to be seen.
Funko has released a full set of images on their blog, which indicates that the DC Primal Age line is going to be an Amazon exclusive. Release dates have not yet been announced, but the figures will retail for $11.99.
