Django Unchained" Action Figures ReleasedThe 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.

The announcement that he is now selling slave action figures is sure not to help change any minds.

Daily Beast reports:

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.

No one will go on record to discuss the action figures, which can easily be viewed as highly offensive. But it is unlikely that any outcry would make Tarantino rethink making slave masters and slaves toys for children to play with — he did, after all, go out of his way to make the abuse and degradation of African slaves for profit “funny.”
