Description
 
Probably the most famous Dragon figure. This was the infamous figure that was photographed and put up on Islamic extremist message boards as a "hostage". The story was an international sensation. Monkey Depot was the first to contact the Associated Press and tell them the jihad crew actually only had an action figure and not a real US solider. In fact, the images of the boxed figure that you see in all the news stories about the hoax came from Monkey Depot. In addition, these are pretty rare. Dragon did special runs of figures for US military exchanges (stores) these were based on existing figures, but equipment was slightly changed. They were only sold on base exchanges for the US military and the African American versions were only packed 1 or 2 to a case of 12.
