doglover: Mugato: Dammit I should have seen that coming

Absolutely not.

It's horribly offensive that the KKK gets police escorts to hold rallies on taxpayer dime, but you can't sell a fictional doll based on a very popular movie. That's the exact opposite intent of the first amendment. It's supposed to be freedom of speech, not freedom of speech only.

Lighten up, Frances. The government didn't order the toys removed from shelves. The people selling them made their own choice.

While my feelings are a bit split regarding the productions of these figures, IMHO they are a niche product. These usually aren't the type of thing you find in Toys'R'Us. They are usually a pricey, small scale production targeted at movie and figure collectors. They aren't for kids to play "Slave and Master", they'll sit in their boxes on a shelf next to a movie poster or something.
