- "Me build, therefore me am!"
The Caveman has a large monobrow and a wide grin. The torso design shows a striped animal skin pelt with a bone over a partially exposed hairy chest. His legs are similarly printed with the striped pattern. He comes with a black hair and beard piece and a brown club, similar to but smaller than the Castle troll club. His flesh tone is yellow.
