Ark-ing up the wrong tree?
I saw this at Kohl's tonight. It's a figure of Rene Belloq, suave villain of Raiders of the Lost Ark, packaged with a tiny replica of the Ark of the Covenant itself. And what sits atop the Ark? A blue plastic spectre, like the ones that emerge at the end of the film.

So...the blue figure must be...the Holy Ghost.
It's a Holy Ghost action figure.
Perfect to go on the shelf next to this:
