As I take a break from paper-writing (I chose to write about Frederick Douglass's narrative, so I need something lighthearted now), let me present The Adventures of Connor Temple of Primeval. If you're not a Primeval person, you may or may not want to disregard this post.
Connor came from ebay yesterday. It's been years since I bought anything on ebay, but I don't think Americans have any other option for buying this series of action figures (there are some on Amazon, but they're the first set and I don't think I like them as much). If you find it odd for me to buy an action figure, remember that I called Primeval "my latest obsession." What else do you do when you have an obsession but buy merch? And in the interests of retaining at least a shred of respectability, I want to point out that I took these pictures yesterday; it seems not as bad to take a break from paper-writing to write this post as to actually take the pictures now, too.
I suppose, though, I hardly need talk about the why's of buying this item: don't I already own Barbie Jeannie and Bella?
Connor comes with an anomaly detector, so he got right to work. (Is that my computer he's standing on?!)
