Groovy! Earthworm Jim Toys Are Back!

Phew. I remember being in a Service Merchandise store the first time I saw Playmates Earthworm Jim figures. I think this was about the time his series had just launched on The WB and a couple of years before that awful N64 game. It’s too bad that the franchise faded into a state of semi-obscurity. Well, there is that Intellivision Amico debacle, but I’m staying far away from that.

Thankfully, studios like Premium DNA are around to resurrect the bionic suit-wearing invertebrate. Yes, the same people who brought us all those Santa figures now have the license to create toys based on EWJ’s games. We spotted this first wave over at the Big Bad Toy Store.

The first four figures include Jim, Psy-Crow, Professor Monkey-For-A Head, and Bob the Killer Goldfish with Henchcat #4. Each figure is priced at $54.99, and this wave is expected to arrive during Q2 of 2023.

There’s no way that Professor Monkey-For-A Head Figure is standing independently. Better get a base for this guy. Here’s what the Professor comes with:

Bob comes with two types of pedestals, while #4 has these accessories:

  • 3 Head sculpts
  • 3 Pairs of hands
  • Fish bowl gripping hand
  • Armor

Psy-Crow is a figure that’d benefit from a base with an articulating arm. Honestly, how often did you ever see him standing on the ground? He’s a flyboy!

  • 3 Head sculpts
  • 3 Pairs of hands
  • Removable helmet
  • Hook blaster
  • Bare feather arms
  • Bare feather tail feathers

Considering the first two Earthworm Jim games were full of amazing animations for the title’s hero, it’d be a waste not to give the guy more faces. So, premium DNA offers a pack of heads and a worm body for $31.99!
