For reasons of posterity, let it be known that Morg is incorrect in his statement that the toy the kid choked on was the Cylon Raider - it was definitely the Colonial Viper.

The lawsuit oddly described the killer toy as being shaped liked a "penis", a description that fits the long forward section of the Viper, rather than the not-penis-shaped-at-all Cylon Raider. (The confusion arises because the kid got both toys that same Christmas).

Extract of the lawsuit with penis reference:

(I have a book coming out this Autumn which mentions this incident in passing, and I want to head off any accusations of bad research when I make the claim that he choked on a Viper missile!)
