Prehistory is somewhat outside our comfort zone, so you won’t be getting any deep discussion of the evolution of the human species, nor the clothing and tools that they might have employed at any given moment. This is just as well, because the set makes no claim as to the period being covered, so we can largely look at these figures with the same eyes as anyone else in terms of knowledge of prehistoric man – mostly a combination of watching Raquel Welch in ‘One Million Years BC’ (1966) and a lot of episodes of the Flintstones. With that solid foundation, we can confidently say that all these figures do indeed look at cavemen – whatever that might mean. They wear animal skins in various ways, and they hold sticks, clubs and what might be primitive spears – the last two being metal accessories. We thought the poses were quite imaginative and nicely realised, and the musculature looks very good, although clearly the finer points of anatomy will depend on where in the long history of the development of Homo-sapiens these figures are supposed to be, or indeed if they are supposed to be some other human species. Ultimately though we are probably overthinking this product, which is a fun collection of figures that deliver what most people would expect from the title.
