Shaun comes complete with his cricket bat and base strewn with broken records as well as an interchangeable left hand with flower bouquet. The figure also "speaks" key phrases from the film.

jeez Cubaboy finally crossed the line !!!I didn't think it possible but thanks to him I now have an image of something that will make men weep!!!

What's even more frightening is that Cubaboy isn't the only one to ask me both those questions!!!

The love-doll issue is a bit sketchy at the moment. I think there some clause in the Uniform Code Of Military Justice (UCMJ) covering indecent depiction of serving servicemen, but I'd have to look it up. I'll get back to you.

The Colonel Creedon action figure project was coincidently being "actively investigated" only a couple of weeks ago. Using a digital hi-rez photo and some sound clips, a company in California will, for $425.00USD (338Eur) create a Colonel Creedon who looks and talks like me (I'm seriously not making this up), I can get as many copies as I want of this figure made for $50USD (40Eur). Now, assuming that I'll make no money myself after outfitting him with G.I.Joe type weapons and accessories, would you lot pay that something like 42.50Euro for, what I'll now class as what fans are demanding?

Count me in (as my attempts at creating a Colonel Creedon voodoo doll have obviously failed).

I'll take two of those action figures, one of which I'll dress up in some old Barbie clothes I have at home and call Charlene. I'll then force them into ever more depraved acts culminating in a murder/rape pact!!!
