Toymaker Discontinues ‘Django Unchained’ Action Figures

If you got one of these for Christmas, hold on tight ’cause you may have a collectors’ item on your hands.

NECA, the makers of a series of action figures for Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained”, was asked by the Weinstein Co., the film’s studio, to discontinue the line after a series of complaints calling the toys “offensive” and that they trivialized the horrors of slavery.

The studio says that the collectibles have been created for all of Tarantino’s films and were meant for people 17 and older, the films’ target audience.

The Weinstein Co. issued a statement which read, “We have tremendous respect for the audience and it was never our intent to offend anyone.” Toymaker NECA has yet to respond.
