that's a load of crap! our country is way to PC and ebay has turned into the biggest p***y. its an action figure from a movie, a very popular movie for pete's sake. no one is sensationalizing slavery. the star rises up from it and becomes an elite bounty hunter, the likes that has never been seen in that movie. ebay will sell all kind of nudy porn, but puts a ban on a django action figure...rediculous!

The world is a nutcase. When something bad happend in the past then we try to hide it under the carpet. Its like they want to hide the fact its about slavery. These figures are based on fictional characters. Dont know whats the big deal.

My guess Sharpton and the people who complained don't differentiate action figures meant to be sold to children as opposed to adults. My thing is that the movie was about people standing up to slavery, granted the movie is much to violent for kids but not sure how the figures themselves are disrespectful or offensive. Also not sure why the NECA figures were pulled but not Enterbay's

Its crazy really, this is an adult line. Its really to bad that Media Play and the like are now gone, if this was the early 2000's Neca would have alot more pull to keep these in stores. Nowadays they have Diamond and TRU, if they ban the figs then Neca really has no choice.

I think this is much to do about nothing. Have you heard any rap song in the 20th century? or saw any black movie other than this? They use the N word now more than i am sure actual slave owners did. I saw the movie twice it was really good but honestly not that bloody nor was it that bad with language. I also saw hansel & gretal which was alot more bloody and used the F word and this is a movie aimed at kids.

Al sharpton just has not had alot to #@$#@ about in a while and this gave him the perfect outlet. IMO neca should have not caved in so quick and stood behind there product.

Poor NECA can't catch a break, political correctness is really starting to overdo it.
