It's not Christmas just yet, but get your hands on the Jesus Christ Action Figure. With walk-on-water action!

Beautiful. Great post, xmutex.

I can't believe how perfect the pitch is.

I found this to be completely tasteless, heretical and without any redeeming social value.

Fucking made my day!!

You can buy the Jesus Action Figure, but without crucifiction action.

Reminds me of #1's JC's Funky Bunch.

Cross not included.

Your parents have to get it together.

Excellent ad. The kids especially are great in it. I'll take six.

IANA Christian, but I find this a little... distasteful, myself.

I absolutely love that the blurb is from "David Manning"...

Does Matt's video of black and White Jesii duking it out in the Pyra offices still exist online anywhere?

I have a Jesus Action Figure. Or rather, I had. I gave it to my cousin for Christmas. He already had a Jesus snow-dome, it transpired, and so during Christmas dinner I felt it would be appropriate to create a "Jesus Feedback Loop" with the two Christs as centrepiece of the table, blessing one another and increasing their mutual holiness exponentially.

I exclaimed to the gathered throng "Behold, I have created a Jesus Feedback Loop!" and my cousin's Yorkshireman father-in-law-to-be replied "He's alright that boy, but you think you know what he's talking about, and all of sudden his brain goes sideways". It was great. Wow, I never realised I had a Jesus Action Figure anecdote...

Great post, by the way!

This is only going to encourage the youth of America to want to be crucified. Can't anyone see the damage this will do?

My favorite in that line was always the Rosie the Riveter doll, but there are plenty more

For the record, thirteen, Matt's collaboration with Neale "1412" Talbot is right here.
