Prince Caspian

The figures from the new Chronicles of Narnia movie, Prince Caspian, are out now locally, at Toys 'R' Us. They are in two size formats, 6" and 4". I prefer the 6" format, and bought several characters; here is the first one, Prince Caspian himself, the eponymous hero of this installment.

This figure has over twenty points of articulation, sword, knife, shield, and four pieces of removable armor. It cost $9.99. The format is emminently compatible with The Lord of the Rings line. It was produced by Playalong Toys ( under the aegis of Jakks Pacific.

In the book Caspian is 13. "That young lad must be going on 20." One gets the feeling from the trailers that they might have done this to make rivalry between him and Peter and Edmund, and a little romantic friction between him and Susan.
