here. Brak comes with a variant arm, Moltar comes with a computer accessory, and
Zorak comes with a keyboard. Each 7" tall figure features several points of
articulation. Look for them in specialty stores in town.

Robert Redford and Brad Pitt star
together for the first time in this espionage thriller from accomplished action
director Tony Scott. Robert Redford is Nathan Muir, a retiring senior CIA
operative who agrees to one last mission to save his protege, Bishop (Brad

Muir recalls how he came to recruit Bishop, their years together on the front
line and the woman who almost came between them. With pyrotechnics for the men
and two generations of hunks for the women, Spy Game has universal appeal.
