you know as well as the rest of us that if there's a buck to be made, no matter how sleazy, our gov't will jump on it

especially if they know the enormous community of comic book/sci-fi/fantasy etc lovers will jump on it also

hmm... our very first president sharing a coin with Silver Surfer. How disrespectful, no matter how much money the gov't gets..

Seriously, bring back POGS for stupid sh*t like this. Good thing I don't have any money to pay the gov't, or you'd all be looking at a copper profile of my (insert body part).

I'm all for you Americans making like John Rambo 100 dollar bills though. THat would stomp serious arse. Outside Jessica Alba, the first movie was unbearable. Why did hollywood emo up Dr. Doom?

Seriously though, is this legal? It's illegal marketing, defacing currency, etc.

Just goes to show you the Government/Media complex is probably a real thing. Pretty soon Pepsi is going to be running our country or something. Like, a can of Pepsi.
