I never grow tired of this story.
Four years ago today, the organization know as "World Against Toys Harming Children, Inc.," published a list of the most dangerous toys of 2004. Among them was the MegaMan NT Warrior "Mega Buster Battle Weapon" which could potentially impale children with its foot long plastic blade. Quote:
"W.A.T.C.H. OUT! Children are encouraged to “[e]xperience the futuristic world of cyber adventure!” with the MegaBuster cannon and cyber sword. The rigid, plastic blade extends approximately 9 ¼ inches from a plastic sleeve, designed to slide onto a child’s arm for “combat”."
Yup, kind of sad to see a MegaMan toy associated with pain. Thankfully, no injuries were ever reported.
