Never too late to merchandise

The Dread Pirate Roberts: now in action figure form, only 20 years after his initial creation...

I mean, who doesn't love The Princess Bride? But...

According to the marketing spiel, the Dread Pirate Roberts Action Figure has 8 points of articulation in exciting "en garde" pose. Perfect for mock fights against Inigo Montoya (unfortunately, there is no action figure of the Spanish swordsman who dedicated his life to revenging his father).

To make up for this though, there is a t-shirt with a fake “My name is sticker...” that clearly states to any who read it: "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." Throw in t-shirts featuring slogans by Fezzik: “Anyone want a peanut?” and Vizzini’s “Inconceivable”.
