Early Medieval Action Figures

Here it is, the ultimate action figure for a Medievalist or any sort. Here is what the ad has to say for it:

Hwæt! Hear me, Geats—er, geeks! When monsters threaten your mead hall, bare your warrior’s courage, travel to the toy store where you bought them, and complete the set with Young Beowulf.

You can also order Grendel and even Grendel's mom. Unfortunately the latter looks nothing like Angelina Jolie*.

Oh well.

*This is the picture I got when I did a Google image search for "Angelina Jolie Beowulf." Believe it or not. And I only did the search in the interest of historical research.
