Action Figures are NOT dolls! (says the U.S. Government)

This is old news (2003) but apparently, Toy Biz sued the U.S. Government to prove that the items that they produce are "Action Figures" and not "Dolls" which the Government Agreed to.

Apparently, "Dolls" which are more humanlike, have a higher tariff rate, than mutants, monsters, and meta-humans. The article also says that writers, such as Chuck Austen were surprised and offended at this decision to dehumanize super-heros, which mirrors the suprise and offense that I experienced while reading Mr. Austen's run on Uncanny X-men.
