Django Unchained - Official Movie Still

Epic Win Of The Day: Django Dolls Snatched Off EBAY!


I don’t know if this is a real epic win or not, but it seem to be a strong position being taken by EBAY. Spike Lee is redeemed!

Slave Dolls? Really? That’s where we are now?

Welp….here is what TMZ is saying about it.

 

TMZ Exclusive

‘Django Unchained’ — Slave Toys Banned from eBay

0124-django-toys-ebay
Don’t count on finding one of those discontinued “Django Unchained” slave toys on eBay any time soon — TMZ has learned, the action figures have now been banned from the auction website.

TMZ broke the story … the Weinstein Company (which produced the film) discontinued the promotional figurines in response to a massive backlash from several African-American advocacy groups.

After the toy company halted production, the toys began to pop up on eBay as “rare” collectibles … and bids skyrocketed.

0124-django-ebay-list
But last night, all the listings for the “Django” toys were yanked from the website — and eBay explained itself to sellers with an email, saying, “Since the manufacturer of this product has discontinued the item’s sale due to its potentially offensive nature, we are not allowing it to be sold on eBay.”

eBay also cautioned the sellers not to re-list the items.

A rep for the auction website confirmed the story, telling us, “These [toys] were removed as they were in violation of our Offensive Materials policy.”

    I loved the movie but the dolls were a bit of an overdose.

      • It is, the last hour is even iller. 4UMF’s “Word From The Streets” has the free HD screening.

  • Derek Yisrael

    No, if you love the movie you gotta love the toys too.
    The movie wasn’t that bad right? Buy your kids the whole line of DJango dolls.
    The movie wasn’t that bad right? right? So what the problem? Offended by the
    toy, why? Now you’re sounding like spike lee. Calm down its not that serious right?

    • TruthSerum

      lol, get over yourself. I liked the movie because it was great ADULT cinema. I say the toy is an overdose because its a toy. I say the same thing when I’m browsing through spencers in the mall and see Leatherface action figures. And its not even that I’m offended I just think R rated action figures are a lil much

      greatmovie lovedeveryminute even tho it wasbased on white german mythology of broomhilda..still a bomb ass movie…but in the most literal sense…slavery aint a joke it wasnt a game n it damn sure wasnt nothin to play about..and in that sense the toys were a slap in the face not to us but to those who actually experienced the hardships of slavery firsthand by the hands of these directors ancestors…the movie was damn good tho..i just wish a a actual descendent of slaves came up with it..or and this sounds retarded ..qt gave public recognition to a descendent of a actual slaves…white ppl continue to profit off our shortcomings…greatmovie tho i really was moved by the film in a good way..but the behind the scenes is a lil fucked up.. but u cant blame white pp for doing what white ppl have always done..i mean if u befriend a snake keep n mind its a snake n its only a matter of time b4 he pull sum snake shit

    I don’t even see what the problem was. Here we have a heroic, Black brotha’ goin’ to war for his lady, and nggas get mad. Boooooy, some of you nggas ain’t sht. SMH.

    • 20world_death2nikocity

      true but its deeper than that brother…its based on old germam mythology”legend of broomhilda”…in 10-20 years they gon be like the only movie heroes we got are ones based off older german legend…nazis are from germany to…nevermind me tho just trying to stir a lil hatred into the pot..its true at the same time tho…qt slick did play us out…just on a deeper level than most niggas gon pick up on

      • jubilee shine

        not only is it drawn from the nordic Brunhilda mythology (which inspired the Wagner opera “Ring des Nibelungen” in the character Valkyrie Brünnhilde, which became Hitler’s favorite opera, and which song “Ride Of The Valkyries” then became the musical inspiration for the vietnam invasion scene in coppolla’s “apocalypse now” (which tupac flipped) marked by the line: “i love the smell of napalm in the morning,”), but the entire concept of django is stolen from the jazz guitarist django reinhardt whose fingers had been crushed and developed a new style to play that earned him great respect. in the first western named django in 1966, the hero crushes his fingers and has to fire his pistol by biting off the guard and using a tombstone to squeese the trigger. tarantino is a sneaky character. plus why didnt inglorious basterds graphically depict the atrocities against the jews like the gas chambers? too delicate?

    The D’jango doll and, loving the movie is one thing, but who in they’re right mind would want to purchase a slave master doll ? . The D’jango doll seems cool, but a damn slave master doll ? . I can see the commercial for this crap already “Slaves sold seperatley whip not included” GTFOH. Most of us loved the movie because for once it potrayed us as the victors instead of us being the victims, something Spike lee, John Singleton, and the Hughes brothers could never get away with

  • Jas1ne

    Had they made roots dolls you’d be offended. Keep it real black men

  • 20world_death2nikocity

    that sounds good n all ..but it seems more of a strategic powerplay to me..see mow that they not onlly are they discontinued toys but they were banned from ebay..now they are worth even more money because of attainabilty…to a normal nigga its a win..but a business nigga see the sinister capitalistic nature of pulling a move like that…i just only hope mostly our ppl got ahold of these dolls…so somebody fromourcommunity can put sum extra change in they familes pocket..(highly unlikely considerin i would never buy that duragatory memoribilia) ….WHITEY WINS AGAIN FUUUUCK!!!

    So we can make gun for toys and make serial killers into toys but a doll from a movie is bad? Wtf is wrong with this country for real… The movie is epic and made a black person a hero, in which is very rare to see in the movie business. So why is this so bad?

  • Sir_Salty_Mcginty

    Black folks and their ignorance of everything other than silly hood sh@t is ASTOUNDING to me. These are COLLECTORS items that are NOT MEANT FOR CHILDREN. They are meant for movie buffs. Most if not all of QT movies have action figures of the characters. They have various action figures of movie villains and so forth that are usually found at Comic book stores and comic conventions. These were not created in the image of real historical slaves but characters in movies. Spike Lee is full of sh@t with his so called Love of black people. I worked for that bastard once and he treated every Black person on the set like crap. He actually stood there and waited for one of my boys to drop what was he was doing in order to open the damn door for him. If you want to protest something protest those silly a$$ black reality-coon-fest shows that you fools love so much. Those do 100 times more damage to the Black image than some f@cking action figures.

    • johnblacksad

      you make some points but the fact that you are white is very disturbing to me…

      • Sir_Salty_Mcginty

        What is disturbing to me is the fact that you think that I am white. Why is that because I make sense? I am in fact a black dude from the south side of the Chi.

      • scullyson

        Who said you made sense ?

      • Sir_Salty_Mcginty

        Isn’t there an episode of “Love and Hip Hop” on somewhere that you are missing?

      • johnblacksad

        too bad you were born in the wrong century… i know you wish you had you some cotton fields and mad ninjaz to pick it up for you

      • johnblacksad

        here you go again talkin that sh!t… i don’t think you are white, i know so… and it’s not because you make sense, which you don’t (what i say? tellin on yourself, only white people make sense huh? smh)

      • scullyson

        Exactly ……

        you have been mind fucked into siding with the real enemy

      • johnblacksad

        You got two accounts now? bwahahahaha… its the Return of the MAGS*! You are fcukin pathetic… second account.. .thumb yourself up, thumb us down… and you still think white people are smart? G.F.O.H. you’re makin an idiot out of yourself! and what the fcuk is a suppressor?

        *in my Mark Morrison voice… ‘return of the mags… come on… return of the mags’

      • scullyson

        Give it up bruh…Your trying too hard…

    • Okay you honkey muthafucka, a Black movie buff like myself understands the purpose of the toys, shit, I wouldn’t mind havin the Django one on my shelf representing the struggle, but I don’t think making slave toys is the best idea, you must understand slavery is a very touchy subject with us especially southerners.

      Why didn’t White media complain and report about Jews not liking the idea of inglorious Basterds before they understood what it was about? Always tryna make us look bad or short tempered.

  • I need to find a couple of coons willing to buy my dolls. Now these monkey ass negros must pay me good ors I’s telling masa yesa. Not going to lie these dolls are going for $2000 if I got my hands on one I would sell it. I need the money. I just want the Samuel Jackson supreme house nigga talking doll. I am going to tell masa you stupid n*gger yesa I’s will. Fun for the family and the kids. hahah

  • YaheardSyndicate

    We are getting dumb as a whole. People are offended over a doll, yet no one cares about liquor stores, checkers and rallys, and the real b.s being sold to our people. No one is in a rush to yank them off the shelf. When that happens that will be an epic win. But are we going to do a victory dance over some action figures… not here.

    • Sir_Salty_Mcginty

      Yep. Co-sign 100.

  • YaheardSyndicate

    Those dolls have probably now just quadrupled in value

  • OCYRUS

    trying to sell these dolls for $200? if you have kool aid Barbie, ghetto Monopoly, you just have to get one of these

  • scullyson

    The Weinstein Company (which produced the film) ….<<<<< hmm no surprise here….This company probably financed alot of other real life ish no doubt past and present….Them *&^%$#@ Dolls wont be missed as far as Im concerned and Tarrotino or whatever his name is can kick rocks on a busy interstate.

  • mrokc405@hotmail.com

    At the end of the day, it is a movie centered around slavery. As funny as some people think it was it still portrays a negative image. Yeah Django was portrayed as the hero but in the end, he was still that “uppity ninja on a horse”. I know as a society we often try to downplay our history but that history is part of our culture and will never be forgotten. As a black man, the selling of those dolls, better yet making those damn dolls, is a bunch of bullsh**. Tarrantino always tries to throw the word ninja in every movie he as ever had. This time he had an excuse to use it as many times as he wanted. So for anyone who thinks selling those dolls is alright, you need to slap yourself twice for that dumb sh**.

  • I used to appreciate how diverse we Blacks are, but now some of yall uncle tom ass niggas thats always complainin about what we do or don’t do, or what we complain about or what we should be complainin about because its worse than what we are actually complainin about got me changin my mind. Crackas take up for eachother at all times, well I guess slavery wouldn’t have have been as efficient if it wasnt for house niggas like yall makin the domination a little easier for massa

    Bbay’s kneejerk stupidity has just made these dolls go up even more in value (I have four and will hang onto the like gold). Collectors will find them elsewhere, but will just find themselves paying more for these rare and ‘offensive’ dolls. Thanks, Ebay, for keeping the world safe from toys.
