Action figures for the 21st Century

On display in the store window on the corner: Action Figure Sigmund Freud ... Moses ... Jane Austin ... Mozart ... Jesus ... William Shakespeare ... Albert Einstein ... Edgar Alan Poe ... [more] ... and the leader of this new pack of super friends, Librarian with Amazing Shushing Action!

You'd think the librarians of America would be happy to have a presence on the level of G.I. Joe, the Incredible Hulk and Superman based on a real librarian hero.

But nope. Apparently they've kept their 20th Century sense of humor.

That's OK. My throwback kids still prefer toy soldiers.
