The likeness is a bit off, judging from images I've seen of Dickens' countenance, and I suspect having a few calluses on the fingers and some smudges on clothing would not be out of character. For greater verisimilitude, I wish the manufacturer had included a few pages of manuscript paper and an inkwell as accessories.
If you are a writer or teacher, this action figure can serve as a conversation starter or even a reminder that it is easier to peck away at a keyboard than dash off a novel with a quill pen.
A caution, however: don't remove the removable parts. She took that hat off almost immediately--and it doesn't stay on after you take it off. Also, the quill broke off, as well (probably because he was shaking hands) but now it looks like a cigarette.
Other than that, it's a fun, silly little thing perfect for your literary friends.
Accoutrements: I think you should make an Emily Dickinson action figure. Thanks! :)
The detail on them is pretty good and the colors are nice a vibrant. They are so well detailed and I like the look so well it was what prompted me to not take them out of the package. If I did I know all my co-workers would be playing with them or possibly even walk off with one.
Dickens' stories are timeless -- the cruelties that poverty places even on the most innocent, and on the most other-wise worthy people were horrendous. And still, unfortunately, ARE horrendous! If Dickens were alive today....what stories he could write! (And, unfortunately, still HAVE to write.) Many of these evils, sadly, still exist, and are made worse by the fact that general society does not think they exist any more -- (surely in not so bad a form as they were in Dickens' time!) But, sadly, they are. What with $60,000 toilet seats in Congressional rest-rooms, and executive salaries 200 or more times that of the "ordinary" worker, (and these being only the "tip" of the cruel iceberg now enveloping the US, and probably England, and the rest of the so-called "civilized" world), we need to read and take heed of Dicken's words -- perhaps now more than ever before!Read more ›
