Jesus Action Figure Performs Miracles

SEATTLE (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Now, people can watch Jesus in action.

Novelty company Archie McPhee sells the “Deluxe Miracle Jesus Action Figure,” a plastic Messiah who sports a robe, guarache sandals, long hair, and comes with accessories to replicate biblical miracles.

Spokesman David Wahl says the five loaves of bread and two fish in the package “can feed 5,000,” and a special jug can turn water into wine.

The “amazing” trick works by putting a blue water sticker on one end of the jug, “distracting” the audience, and turning the jug over to reveal a red wine sticker.

Jesus also comes with healing “glowing hands,” though the original prototype accidentally glowed all over, which looked more like a zombie.

Wahl thinks the toy represents Jesus accurately, even if a church group once argued that it looked too much like a “hippie.”

Action Jesus is also versatile. He can blend into both a nativity scene or a fight against a Darth Vader figure.
