Official Bruce Schneier action figure steps onto market
Good news for devotees of ponytailed crypto guru of all our hearts Bruce Schneier: it's now possible to buy an officially endorsed "Bruce Schneier action figure". The action figure, which can be purchased here, comes with a range of costumes ("casual Bruce", "smart Bruce" and "head only"), and also features "scalp" options ("bald", "ponytail" or "cyborg").

For those few Reg readers who haven't heard of Mr Schneier - our own John Leyden has described him as "the closest the security industry has to a rock star" - he is a famous crypto and computer security expert who also comments occasionally on wider security matters.
