Review by JoshB
I'm going to start by saying that 1. I am not a big DC comics fan and 2. I was never a He-Man fan. So logically, the combination of the two is something that I should not like. But Funko has pulled off an interesting re-imagining of the DC universe with their Primal Age line, and it's done so well that you can't help but like it, even just a little. Sure, some characters are more successful than others, but when you get them all together, and throw in a playset and battle animals, the whole thing is an 80s kid's dream come true.
Each Primal Age figure comes on a blister card that is not unique to the figure, and is not resealable, so better off just opening them!
I'm not a big Joker fan in the first place, but like Batman, I feel that they didn't go far enough to make this figure really exciting. It's well made, and I like the little details like the banana on the chest strap, but I feel they could have done more.
The Joker comes with two weapons, aside from the unremovable daggers on his belt. The axe is a bit simple, and the shield has a Bruce Timm-esque Joker design on the side.
Again, it's fine, but I feel it could have gone farther with the concept. The sculpt is nice with nice details like the stitching of the fabric in the boots. Also, The Joker's legs were a little loose out of the package.
Thanks again to Funko for the review sample.
