Maybe one of you fellas from the UK can refresh my memeory, but I seem to remember reading somethign a long time ago about a space marine statue that survived some sort of terrorist attack in the UK a few years ago.

Anyone?

The space marine you are referring to is the one that was in the manchester arndale center store, that got bombed by the IRA about 1996-ish

from what i was told about this, when the bomb went off it sent all the models flying and the only model left standing was a space marine veteran sarge on the intro table... i was told it was a model not a statue but i may have been miss informed.

the space marine in question was a statue and stood seven foot tall approximately.

it did fall over in the blast and in doing so crushed the till.

it was one of the only things that didn't go missing when the clean up crews started work.

LOL. Probobly only because it was too big to fit into a pocket and easily traced.
