    Saw on the news that a terrorist group in iraq has reported on it's website that it has some "hostage". But when the photo was released the makers of a knock-off GI Joe type of 12" army figures said that it was not a real peron and actually a doll they made shown in the bad photo (which I saw). Terrorism is never funny but this is just stupid!

    Edit: see the daily show repeats on thursday night (2-3-05) to catch a good parody on the story!

    Yes, it was a DRAGON military figure, ironically it was said by a company representative to be a special edition figure which was made to represent the troops currently over there

    Finally an Iraq stroy where no-one dies needlessly, good job Josh (PS I am surprised how little attention this whole stroy got among the freaks online)

    It was a Dragon figure? I thought they gave some weird name for it. Shame on me for not paying more attention!

    Dragon does make some great looking figs. I've been tempted by their medival warriors every time I go to the model shop! I had a link somewhere which compared Dragon's head sculpts to celebrities and many of them were right on but unofficial as in not approved by the celebrites. If I find it I'll post it - funny stuff!

    Yep. We are supplying them with toy action figures. Is that another Cheney/Halliburton subsidary with a no-bid contract?
