Well….if you left the theater after seeing the wildly popular Tarantino movie, Django Unchained and said to yourself, “Man, I wish I could go home and play with a slave master doll or a slave master bounty hunter doll, or share this with my children, your wish has come true.” In a questionable move…the Weinstein Company has just released dolls of all of the major characters from Django Unchained.
The eight-inch action figures are available on Amazon.com and come “…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.” (Not sure if a whip is included?)
Noted black film critic Tim Gordon spoke to The Daily Beast about the dolls and the film saying, “There were a lot of things that were done for Django that would’ve never been done for Inglourious Basterds … but people don’t speak up. People have gotten so — I don’t know if the word is comfortable or naïve. We just want to go along to get along and it’s very frustrating.”
I understand that this is a Hollywood film, but I’m not sure what to say about this one…. Tell me how you feel? Will you be buying the doll?
