'Django' Slave Toys

DISCONTINUED

EXCLUSIVE

0118_django_toys_01
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.

Sources tell us ... the toymakers only released somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 dolls before shutting down production.

We reached out to the Weinstein Company for comment, so far no word back. But earlier this week we got Christoph Waltz out in Hollywood and it sounds like the 'Django' cast has already learned the fate of the action figures.

Congrats to them for now making those toys worth good money, and people need to get over themselves. They don't like the negative words used? So? How's always having the main villian to be a white guy (often Christian and conservative) thanks to lobbyists like the above groups not wanting their own kind depicted negatively so they instead make whites to be the monsters in everything (including Django Unchained)?

Just wondering of anyone had actually looked at these dolls. These are collectors dolls for ages 17 and up. Some asked who would buy these dolls? Anyone who is a fan of the movie or of the actors would love to buy these to put in there Tarantino collection.

As much as people would like to no one can erase history. There were crimes committed against all races at one point. Pretending it didn't happen is as bad as punishing society today for what our ancestors did. If the human race is to progress we must understand that people are all the same...there is no black white red or brown. We are all the human race. The past isn't pretty so why do we dwell on it? Its time we make the future a better place for ALL our chilren.

My reply to 95% these comments would be who cares. Geesh, get over it already. It is entertainment at it's finest. Create the conspiracy and it will keep people talking and interested (whether they admit it or not). Next it will be that there is a huge conspiracy to create racial tension so the "white man" can bring slavery back. Laugh and move on the the next media over saturation of a headline or person...for example: Beyonce, Rihanna, Manti Te'o, Katt Williams, Lindsey Lohan, Iphones...

The dolls are a little offensive. If another holocaust movie came out and dolls were made very skinny, a concentration camp background, etc just plain offensive. Do you think for one minute Jews wouldnt be offended, think about it???
