Slaves for sale!

Django Unchained Slave Action Figures Released

Via NewsOne reports:

The criticism levied at Quentin Tarantino for his so-called humorous take on slavery in “Django Unchained” has been intense as critics claim that he is exploiting a traumatic, ugly period in this nation’s history so far reaching, that the effects are still felt today.

Last fall, the National Entertainment Collectibles Association, Inc. (NECA), in tandem with the Weinstein Company, announced a full line of consumer products based on characters from the movie. First up are pose-able eight-inch action figures with tailored clothing, weaponry, and accessories in the likeness of characters played by Foxx, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Leonardo DiCaprio, James Remar and Christoph Waltz. The dolls are currently on sale via Amazon.com.

Do you find these action figures off the chain or just plain ole’ offensive??
