Django Unchained Toys BANNED From eBay!!

Django Unchained Toys BANNED eBay

Django may be Unchained, but he definitely isn't uncensored!

When we heard the dolls — yes, dolls! Let's face it, "action figures" have kung fu grip; these toys come with outfits — based on the hit Quentin Tarantino film were being discontinued, we were bummed.

But the one silver lining we saw in this playbook was that people clever enough to have snagged them early were going to make a mint on eBay!

Well, it turns out we were wrong, because the controversy has proved too much for eBay, who banned the figures.

eBay, where you can purchase dead animals, Glenn Beck's urine, and yes- even a woman's virginity. But these toys were too much?

OK, we're sorry, but the whole point is that he's a hero! That's who toys get made of! He's a hero that goes from being a slave to leading a revolution! He's an American Spartacus!

You know who else was a slave? Darth Vader! Try banning all the toys made of him!

We are just plain tired of having to defend a movie about a character who fights slavery! It's insane!

    Good! They should be banned.

    They should be, I guess its an 18 rated movie and kids would want to see the movie if they had the toys. Ok, for collectors that does suck, but films aimed at adults that have toys for kids is pushing it.

    This makes no sense. The collectors figures cost hundreds of dollars (now probably much much more now that they've been "banned") so it's not aimed at children. If you're a horrible parent and you let your young child watch this movie, then you have other issues other than a doll based off a fictional character.

    Maybe if it were a doll of a slave being whipped etc. I'd understand. But it's a black character who escapes slavery and fights it that we're talking about here. People love to jump on bandwagons and overreact.

    If people didn't overreact to that stupid Fifty Shades of Grey book then that piece of crap wouldn't be where it is today.

    Re: fid – Well i stand corrected, if they're costly then they clearly arent kids toys and this is just silly.

    Ridiculous! Go to eBay right now and type in the N-word. If they are worried about being racially offensive this is nothing compared to the stuff already out there.

    This is not a movie about him ESCAPING slavery, this is a movie about a black man who is given his freedom in exchange of becoming a white man's partner in bounty hunting. In the process, he NEVER fights for slaves to be free but he fights to find the LOVE of his life who is his wife. However, his actions throughout the movie give other black slaves the chance to see what a black man is capable of doing whether they are a slave or not. Also it gives the other slaves hope of freedom.

    This is the theme of the movie.

    All I know about the movie is Jamie foxx said he gets to "kill all the white people" shortly after farrakan said the movie was a blueprint for the coming race war. Slavery was outlawed in America 150 years ago, none of us alive today had anything to do with it. if you're still stuck on "slavery" seek medical or psycho attention right away. No desire to watch a race baiting movie much less toys.

    They're adult figurines!!! Not for the kiddies

    The dolls are still for sale on eBay, so I guess they did not band them.

    Um Perez…
    It's a doll of a black slave that you can purchase. Just like slaves were purchased. It trivializes the entire issue. They are making money off of TINY SLAVE TOYS. A movie is one thing, but this is a totally offensive cash grab that needs to disappear.
