Howdy Y'all

Jesus action figures ?

now I know some of you have probably seen these on TV etc, but I have only come across them recently. Im not Christian myself, but even in Islam, Jesus is an important prophet(or Hazreti Peygamberas we call him). Still, I find these action figures at one level really cool and at another, strangely disturbing...

what do others think ?

warning ! no religioso flaming !

my faves...soccer jesus and and martial arts jesus !

The "Jesus is my Coach" series was pretty cool, but that video was rather disturbing... especially after watching the Passion of the Christ. What kid without problems will want to jab Jesus in the side with a Roman spear after that movie? :(

I have no problem with the coach series, it seems to show a warmth and innocence. Although it is a bit... akward.

The other stuff however, is pure BS.

No one would. It's a joke about the commercialization about Jesus, I suppose:). I suppose whoever made it doesn't like the passion.

And no parent without problems would let their kids watch the passion.

Some parents might not want their kids to view things like, say, this (http://www.acidigital.com/passion/images/passion-foto21.jpg).

Just realised something. It looks like two kids are innocently playing football (no I wont call it soccer, go away), and then Jesus comes in, tackles the kid and steals the ball.

The video came out before the Passion, so there goes your argument. :p

And that reminds me of the Family Guy episode.

*Jesus hits the golfball, landing inches away from the hole*
GUY: Hah, you missed Jesus!
JESUS: Or did I?
*Jesus magically moves the ball towards the hole*
JESUS: Ba-ba-ba-boo yah!

They look more like collectable figures than action figures? I was picturing something more along the lines of the Star Wars san Jesus Figures. These are perfectly fine. Whatever gets the word across.

the word being that if you are a kid who plays soccer you are likely to have the ball stolen by a long haired dude in a robe and sandals :D

Hahah... those are awesome figures. I wouldn't want em in my house though... I don't think Jesus would enjoy being next to Spongebob, Patrick, Faramir, Grievous and Yoda...

Yeah, but Yoda is so kickass that Jesus becomes a fan and will let him win.

'cause he's that awesome.

Personally if Yoda was gonna kill someone, he should just use lightning for about 5 hours. :D
