Target is getting Primal Age!

Let's talk about Funko and Super 7's great line of ReAction and Legacy action figures. They don't bobble or pop, but they thrill in their own fun way.

Target is getting Primal Age!

Postby DMScurvy » Mon Dec 31, 2018 11:02 am

So yesterday I was in Target and in the mens tshirts they had a Funko Batman Primal Age t-shirt. I thought it was cool so I went to buy it, but the register blocked me saying it could not be purchased until 1/18. So looks like thay will be the release date of Primal Age coming to Target.

I saw both cats in Target last week but they were not scanning in the app. Fun to see them on a store shelf.

I don't have room for this but they do look fun. I think I need to force my allegiance from the X-Men, to Batman so I can get all the cool stuff.

I saw the Castle and beast at my Target too .. from what I'm hearing/reading though is that the figures have/had really bad production problems (thin and fragile connector parts) and are breaking or falling apart .. at least the ones that were sold on Amazon. Maybe the Target shipments will have better, updated, QC figs.

One of Funko’s designers claimed on FB that the Target figs are from a separate production run that addresses the breaking issues.

Target also appears cheaper than Amazon.

I have had two Amazon Green Lanterns break. I plan to get one at Target and judge whether the line has improved based on that.

With the rest of my Amazon figs, hot water to loosen joints and not forcing stiff joints has worked.

I had pretty good luck with mine. Hope that the production issues are fixed and that the target sales and reviews improve the perception of the line, i really want to see a 2nd series beyond. i am very much over pops, but i will never be over action figures.

Yeah it is a mashup of the old 80's 5.5 figures like he-man and the masters of the universe. so it is DC characters with a He-Man aesthetic, and the back story they are creating is almost closer to conan the barbarian.

Bird box is an ok movie, not great not terrible, but the memes that have come from it are amazing and make it even better lol

I saw the Batcave at my Target, and it looked pretty big. Cool looking and for 50 bucks, worth it. However its not for me but for sure anyone who loves He-Man style. It really did remind me of the old school Castle Grayskull.

Wonder if more hybrids type things will come if this does well. But it isn't seeming that popular from the start at least

Saw a fresh box placed on pegs this morning. The figures were:
- 1 Batman
- 1 Freeze
- 1 Shark
- 1 Aquaman
- 2 Scarecrow
- 4 Joker

No Wonder Woman or Green Lantern seen .. lack of GL may be due to his breaking issues (which may not have been fixed yet).

Anyone else see any?
