religious action figures! yes! no more stealing my friends' action figures! seriously, this could be good for families with a new testament preference; they have "african heritage" and "caucasian heritage" lines. one odd thing -- the "african" eve is much lighter than the "african" adam... what's up with that? link from k10k.

I ordered a Job and it arrived not only with its intended open wounds and Incredible-Hulk-style torn clothing but also two left arms. I will give Train Up a Child credit -- when I called to complain, they rushed a new, more perfect Job to me.

Neale and I did this ages ago, with my white and black jesuses.

Two left arms? I don't recall that being one of the Trials of Job, but you have to give them credit for creativity.

I ordered a standard jesus action figure a year or so ago, and was quite upset when his head fell off during a mock easter celebration we were having. Then again, I also really appreciated the extra opportunity to be sacreligious.

mmmm, sacrelicious.

What's with the name?

"I'm gonna train you up son!" I'm from the south, so this sounds normal to me somehow.

Counselor: "You got to train up yer child, see?"

These are patently ridiculous. I can only picture them out in the dirt kicking ass and taking bb gun hits. Their purpose appears to be protection from the evil empire of manufactured hollywood toys, and subtly a brainwashing technique...

What kind of plastic voodoo can go on?
