St. Michael Needs an Upgrade

Madpriest spotted this St. Michael figurine whilst leafing through a church supplies mag the other day. I guess the pseudo-Roman attire has a certain period charm*, but is the Archangel still using that old sword, or does the weaponry need an upgrade?

No doubt there is already, somewhere in the USA, a range of angelic action figures with bullet proof vests and grenades, or perhaps a Matrix-style shades and overcoat.

What would the 21st century Michael wear? Over to you.....

(*ok, it doesn't really. And does anyone else think it looks like David Ginola?)


  1. Maybe one of these guys is more in keeping with contemporary sentiments? I'm sure if you asked they'd do one complete with an AK47...
