[Movies] Django Unchained Toys From NECA Draw Controversy
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.09.2013

The Wrap reports that there is now controversy for even the merchandise release for the Django Unchained movie.

NECA partnered with The Weintstein Company to make a series of retro eight-inch figures based on the characters in the movie played by Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington and others. The figures are now on sale on Amazon, but the sale has been criticized by Najee Ali, director of the advocacy group Project Islamic Hope. Ali stated that the figures are a "slap in the face of our ancestors" in an interview with the Associated Press. He wants them removed from the online market. Ali stated that he personally has no problem with the actual film and he has seen it twice, but he thinks the toys trivialize "the horrors of slavery and what African Americans experienced."

These collectibles figures are aimed at ages 17 and older. Figures were also released for Tarantino's previous, violent, fictional take on WWII with Inglorious Basters. Here's an image of the figures:
