Cast of BBC TV's Merlin In The Flesh...and Plastic

Take the Merlin/ Arthur myth you know and love. Now add a healthy shot of Raimi-esque magic sauce...which essentially means cut down half the serious moments in favor of an odd moment or 16 with intentionally hysterical overtones. Think Hercules with more magic and some awesome looking creatures! This is what's been playing on the Syfy channel here in the states and if you haven't been watching yet, there's no better time than now! The show is witty, well thought out and extremely well acted even when the action calls for something WAY over the an ogre disguised as a beautiful princess and hating every minute of it. I was also told about a pixie who has inappropriate thoughts about old men. Sold! Want to know more? Here's the skinny right from the crew themselves...

For those of you already on board, has whipped up the action figures you crave in your heart of hearts. This is a 3.75" line kicking off with Merlin, Gaius, Arthur and Morgana, all fully poseable with accessories. No word yet if they will make their way to the states, but we'll keep you posted on that front.
