Jesus? I'm pretty sure that's Alpha Trion.

Wasn't Jesus on a half shell, or am I getting him muddled up with Venus?

Also Jesus appears to be wearing some sort of black singlet or wrestling leotard??

I keep visualizing this as a full-size Jesus standing up on top of a crab. He'd have to perform some sort of miracle to keep the crab from being crushed, wouldn't he?

Maybe it's a giant prehistoric crab.

It's Thorin Oakenshield

Or Rasputin. (Cue Boney M's disco hit of the same name.)

Read This!

Sorry for the double post, but this article really needs some proofing:
Quote:
"They're not these nasty, dirty perverts who can't get enough sex. It's really about companionship," Matt McMullen, founder and CEO of RealBotix, told CBS SF Bay Area. "For me, the idea of conversing with this character, and actually stimulating a bone that's actually above and beyond the physical, that was what that appealed to me."
Stimulating a bone?

The article also mentions someone who has "fixe sex robots".

Wrong thread?

If that is a direct quote from McMullen it shouldn't be corrected. The video from the linked article doesn't include the second part quoted, but the first part is pretty much accurate.

There's a meme going round that the face on the crab looks more like Captain Morgan, which I can see.

I'm with Alarm, I think it looks more like Thorin. Captain Morgan has a mustache and soul patch, Crabby McCrabface appears to have a full beard.
