    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! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    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! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    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?
