    The guy in the hat is Mr. Oddjob from the James Bond film “Gold Finger”.

    The idea (for a while) was to name chips after Bond villains – there was also a “Nick Nack” named after Scaramanga’s assistant in “The Man with the Golden Gun”.

    Unfortunately, Marketing took over before we got to Bloefeld.
