Does anyone else think this is over the top weird? Christian or no, is this a good thing? The news clip I saw showed the Jesus figurine saying, "I am the Son of God." Is it just me?

Foxtrot.

They wont sell, and if they do, the kids wont play with them, and if the kids do, then I feel sorry for all the good sex those kiddie-poos will miss out on later in their life. Bible beaters in the making.

This is taking religion too far, IMO.

Cheers,
Kyle

Does it shoot down the perils of sin with the power of holy speakers? If it does...now thats weird.

Anyone else thinking this is absurdly weird?

Yes.
I'm sure it'll be a big seller in their core markets of the Deep South though. Probably throughout the west too.

A ridiculous, bizarre idea though.

Quite strange. I've never understood this sort of thing. It's not the same thing, but it'd be odd to see a King Tut action figure.

I also saw a Bible comic book once. I wonder if there is a market for this sort of thing? I guess my faith isn't represented by a toy.  Silly

One of the TV news channels had a story on this a few days ago, and were showing pics of the figurines....the reporter was showing two woofy figurines side by side..."and here we see Samson and Goliath...."

Newsanchor at studio: "Ooops! That's another story altogether..."

(Guess you had to be there... Wink)

I see nothing wrong with this.

I would TOTALLY buy some and make them do obscene things to one another like I used to do with my GI Joes.  hyper

How much will they cost? 30 silver dollars? Or 30 cents?

Anyway, jokes aside, Wal-Mart has a history of knowing how to and what to peddle to the public for prices that the buyer thinks is cheap but still produces a healthy profit for the stockholders. I get offended by this, and I am an Atheist. I guess we will finally find out if God really exists or not, because this is really over the top. God will - if He is real - smite the entire top management of Wal-Mart! The Saviour Jesus Christ can't still be Holy if reproduced by Chinese slave labour.

I reckon they'll sell heaps but not to heathens like us eh?

Some kids will prolly enjoy them although its heaps more fun blowing shit up with your action man but I see no harm in it, Jesus as a superhero......has quite a ring to it! I'd rather my grandkids played with these than Snoop Dogg and Fiddy Cent dolls  Smile

Wal-Mart is such a contradictory company except for one thing - to make a lot of money. The money from the religious is the same as from the 'heathen'. I do hope these figure are made in the USA or Mexico, someplace where Christians live or at least allowed to practice their faith without difficulty.

Yep.

Quoting LogansGirl (Thread starter):

Good? No. Bad? I don't see how it would be bad, but I certainly don't see how any good can come of it.

Quoting LogansGirl (Thread starter):
The news clip I saw showed the Jesus figurine saying, "I am the Son of God."

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but that would be completely inaccurate. Nowhere in the Bible did Christ claim to be the Son of God, although it was certainly hinted at. He refered to himself as "The Son of Man". When others asked him if he was the Son of God, his answer was something along the lines of, "well, what do YOU think I am?"

Quoting Deskflier (Reply 12):

I don't think these figurines were ever intended to be Holy in any way, but I agree there is a significant contridiction here.

While there is zero chance they'll be anatomically correct, I wonder if they'll have molded-on briefs the way that modern GI Joes do? Personally, I always saw Jesus as more of a "boxers" type of guy.  Wink

Pregnant Mary is sold up to Christmas eve. Baby Jesus goes on sale at 12:01 AM on Christmas. Dead Jesus is sold just before Easter, but is replaced with angelic Jesus at 5 AM on Easter morning. Collect them all!

As far as I know there's no Mary Magdalene doll, only a Mother Mary doll. The Mother Mary doll is a worthy investment, however, as it will immaculately spew out a replacement doll in case you lose Jesus.
