The controversial “Django Unchained” action figures have officially been DISCONTINUED … after several African American groups called for a boycott of the dolls … TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the toy production tell us … shortly after advocacy groups like Al Sharpton’s National Action Network and Project Islamic Hope spoke out against the figurines … the Weinstein Company (which produced the film) reached out to the toy company and told them to put the kibosh on the toy line ASAP.

We’re told the toy company agreed, insisting they never intended to offend anyone … and halted production immediately.

We kinda saw this one coming. Check out Marlon Wayans’ hilarious reaction to hearing about the dolls for the first time here.
