Bronte Sisters Action Figures (With Barrier-Breaking Feminist Vision Powers!) (VIDEO)

We love literary action figures like the librarian and Jane Austen, but wouldn't it be cooler if they could combine their powers to become a giant dino with "barrier-breaking feminist vision" powers?

This video, which features Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Bronte as "power dolls," popped up on YouTube a couple of days ago, and the description explains that it was "a fake commercial we made in 1998 for a series of educational shorts about action figures based on historical figures. Its educational value was somewhat suspect. It was never aired."

That was clearly a mistake, because this video is awesome.
