Does anyone remember the controversy over WWF's Al Snow action figure back in 1999(not that long ago, I know)? I bring this up because in class today I discovered that my professor is the lady who started all of the crap over this figure. Here is a link in case you don't remember/would like to know more.

      yeah, i remember this toy, i had the hardest time finding it cause everyone wanted it, and i finally had to go to wal-mart one day when their toy shipment arrived and i got it right out of the ups packaging practically.

        Yep, another example of over-reaction. I remember that whole thing too. One of my ex-girlfriend's had the figure too.

          The professor was going over the whole thing in class today. She had her facts extremely wrong. She said that Al Snow would carry the head out, skewered on a stick. Then she went to explain how the WWF marketed the head as a real severed woman's head that he was carrying around.
