OH: "Django Unchained" ACTION Figures Hit The MARKET + Jamie Foxx & Kerry Washington REMIX "All Gold Everything"

Photobucket

Quentin Tarantino and the Weinstein company are capitalizing on the success of the Django Unchained flick with a selection of "Django" action figures. Find out more inside.....

 

Along the same lines as other profitable action flicks, the Weinstein company has released a line of action figures associated with its hit 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."

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.”

While we all agree that the company should be able to profit from the success of the flick, are we ok with "slavery" being turned into a marketable commodity....again?  Given, the movie was not a documentary or truly historical depiction of slavery as it was a Hollywood film for entertainment.  But didn't the film portray pretty true points about slavery...and therefore the action figures could be taken as a glorification of what went down?

Also, Amazon doesn't go into detail about the accessories but we wonder if either character comes with a "whip."  And how would we feel about that?

Speak on it....are the dolls an example of marketing going too far?

 

 

In other Django news....

 

During an interview with HipHollywood, actors Kerry Washington and Jamie Foxx broke out into an impromptu tribute to Trinidad James with a verse of "All Gold Everything." Hilar.  Check it out above...

Fans of Jamie, Quentin and Leo can see the cast talk about the film on last night's "Nightline":

Do you think that the Jews

Do you think that the Jews would allow A BALD-HEADED, STARVATION LOOKING HOLOCAUST CONCENTRATION CAMP DOLLS to be sold? HELL NO! So SLAVERY DOLLS ARE OK! This is APPAULING, the Jews are very very SENSITIVE to the ATROCITIES THEY HAVE ENDURED AS A PEOPLE AND NEVER EVER let us FORGET IT. Day in and day we are ENINDATED w/ the history channel talking about Hitler and the Holocaust so much that at times you become DESYNTHESIZED TO IT. They are QUICK to call people ANTI-SEMITIC IN A HEART BEAT and would never ever be as PASSIVE as we have become about our history! THIS WOULD BE HEADLINE NEWS if CONCENTRATION DOLLS WERE BEING MADE! WAKE UP PEOPLE! I will never ever take any part in supporting this movie! EVER!

@Shay, Jews stick together,

@Shay, Jews stick together, which is a trait that Blacks tend to lack! Because the Black community is so divided, it makes it easy for an OUTSIDER to come in and throw a few dollars, and have a few of them back their idiotic plan of destroyin the Black ppl! If Blacks looked out for each other the way Jews do, this country would have a Black president DECADES AGO!

@Tori, I could not get on

@Tori, I could not get on yesterday later to save my life I was thinking Natasha had it out for me. My laptop and tablidboth said every time I tried to log in error on the script page. You are so right though, I worked around a lot of Jews and that is what I like about them how they stick together and take care of each other. Even though they are always saving and getting jobs for their relatives and friends they rally for one another. They do come across their Bernie Murdocks here and there but they have each other's back. I guess the jeep is all but forgotten.

Saddest post I seen to

Saddest post I seen to date... who in the hell wants a Django doll? I loved the movie and loved ALL of the characters I just can't see spending 5 cents on a slave doll ! Couldn't they market something else? posters, books,

Hell...We've been gettin'

Hell...We've been gettin' slaved out and exploited since Hattie McDaniel played the role of 'Mammy' in Gone with the wind.... the problem today is 'we' think because we have a black president, we now all-of-a-sudden live in a Post-Racial Society... As Muhammad Ali said in his later years, even with all of his accolades, and success he had as the 'People's Champ'...to them, as he said he's "Still a N__a" ....just because you domesticate a Pit Bull, don't ever forget it's in its blood to fight and kill...so you shouldn't be surprised if one day it reverts back to its nature...

So they're CAPITALIZING OFF

So they're CAPITALIZING OFF OF SLAVERY?!?!? WAIT..WAIT.. It's 2013 and a major Motion Picture Studio is selling Black Slave Dolls in a box?!? Did I miss something? How can you make a profit off of slavery in 2013? And to sell action figures like real African Americans did not die and were not killed as little as 100 years ago? And I'm sure there will be a bunch of DUMB IGNORANT commenters who will say they think this is cute and whats the harm in it..smh...#NAACPwhereareyou?
