The action figures NECA had made for the smash hit movie, Django Unchained, have been discontinued.
Source: 'Django Unchained' action figures discontinued
Following the controversy earlier reported, the Weinstein Company, distributors of the movie Django Unchained, have asked NECA to discontinue the toy line. They released the following statement: "We have tremendous respect for the audience and it was never our intent to offend anyone."
Still, TMZ reports that 1,000 of these figures did reach distrubution before production was halted. The prices of these figures have affected some sellers (ebay listings have single figures going for as cheaply as twenty-nine dollars with one thousand dollars being the most expensive. For the entire set right now, the most expensive find is over one thousand five hundred dollars).
The figures of the line that seem to be the most rare are Broomhilda and, ironically, Django himself, with Butch, Stephen, Calvin, and Shultz being the regulars from the set.
