New Action Figure Set for Wal-Mart Debut?

I'm betting the marketing geniuses from Beltonville could rack this next to the GI Joe's and the George Bush Flight Suit Carrier Landing action figures...see if you can pick out what I'm talking about (hint: it's not an action figure of Col. Byrne):
...Kimmitt warned that if talks between city leaders and members of the Iraqi Governing Council failed, the military would consider renewing its assault on Fallujah. Marine commanders were skeptical negotiations would succeed.

"The prospect of some city father walking in and making 'Joe Jihadi' give himself up are pretty slim," said Lt. Col. Brennan Byrne, commander of the 1st Batallion, 5th Marine Regiment.

"What is coming is the destruction of anti-coalition forces in Fallujah ... they have two choices: Submit or die," he told reporters.
Think Mattel can get a "Joe Jihadi" line of toys out in time for Sovereignty Day?
