Action Figure Review: Wonder Woman from DC Primal Age by Funko
Height: 5 1/2 inches
Articulation: Balljointed hips, swivel waist, swivel shoulders, and a swivel neck.
Accessories: Sword, cape, and shield.
Non-Scalper Price: $12 dollars
* Wonder Woman looks really, really cool . While she is still absolutely 100% recognizable as Wonder Woman, there are still elements of the design that bring something unique to the table, particularly the larger eagle emblem on the chest and the longer armored loincloth. Heck, even if you're not into the barbarian/fantasy vibe of the Primal Age line, this is still just a really good Wonder Woman figure with a bit of an old school feel.
* I like the headsculpt. While it's a bit nicer than what you would have seen in a true 5.5 inch 1980s line, it still feels like it could belong. The paintwork is quite nice and clean and Wonder Woman's tiara is pretty slick looking. I actually like how there's an armored plate that hangs down over her brow covering her nose.
* The armor is nicely done and actually extends off of Wonder Woman's chest. It feels like a separate piece, although it certainly isn't removable.
* Wonder Woman's cape is removable via a small clasp around her neck. It hangs down really well and looks very good on the figure. The cape is a bit more maroon colored, much different than Wonder Woman's top and boots, but it really complements the brighter colors of her outfit.
* Wonder Woman's boots absolutely remind me of Teela's boots from MOTU but you've also got some very cool knee pads with an eagle on them.
* Not only does Wonder Woman include her Lasso of Truth, which looks pretty solid, but she also has a clip on her belt so that the lasso can hang on her left hip.
* I love this sword! It is a bit shorter than other swords in the line but it looks very wicked and seems perfect for some close quarters battles. It's definitely more fitting for Wonder Woman's personality than some massive, unwieldy sword.
* To go with the sword is a very cool sword with an eagle emblem on it. It snaps onto Diana's wrist well and seems like some heirloom of Themyscira passed down over the years.
If you're looking for more of Princess Diana, I have reviewed a plethora of Wonder Woman products including the Justice League Multiverse Wonder Woman, TRU exclusive Wonder Woman, cloaked Mattel movie Wonder Woman and movie Diana of Themyscira, Kotobukiya's Bishoujo Armored Wonder Woman, the New 52 Wonder Woman versus Katana 2-pack, the Gal Gadot inspired Wonder Woman from Mattel's DC Comics Multiverse: BvS line, the Frank Miller inspired Multiverse Wonder Woman, the DCUC Series 4 Wonder Woman, the Teen Titans Go! To the Movies Wonder Woman minifigure, the Bombshells action figure Wonder Woman, the Lil Bombshells series 1 Wonder Woman and the series 2 Wonder Woman, a set of Batgirl and Wonder Woman Magnetic Salt & Pepper Shakers, the Nano Metalfigs Wonder Woman (DC4) from Jada Toys, Wonder Woman (DC38), Wonder Woman (DC53), and the Wonder Woman DC16 from the 10 Pack.
