‘Django Unchained’ Gets Its Own Line Of Action Figures [Photos]
Moviegoers looking to continue the Django Unchained storyline outside of the movie theater can now pick up a series of action figures based on characters from the film.
The folks at NECA have faithfully recreated a number of the central characters from Quentin Tarantino’s latest cinematic adventure. Given the violent nature of the Civil War era western, chances are most people won’t feel comfortable reenacting scenes from the film in the privacy of their own homes.
According to Geek Tyrant, the line of action figures includes Django (Jamie Foxx), Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), Butch (James Remar), Stephen (Samuel L. Jackson), and Broomhilda (Kerry Washington).
NECA’s official description of the Django Unchained figures reads as follows:
“From the highly anticipated new film from prolific director Quentin Tarantino comes this collection of poseable 8 inch figures with tailored fabric clothing similar to the retro toy lines that helped define the licensed action figure market in the 1970s. Each figure stands approx 8 inch tall, with tailored western clothing, and authentic weapons and accessories. Window Box Packaging.”
Screen Crush reports the aforementioned characters are from Volume One of the company’s Django toys. Assuming these toys fly off virtual shelves, NECA intends to release even more characters from the film at a later date.
At present, Amazon only has one of the toys listed on its website. Stephen, who is portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson in the upcoming film, is currently selling for $29.99. If you plan to collect the entire series, then you may have to completely empty your wallet in the process.
NECA has produced a number of action figure toys for several movies and video games including Gremlins, Bioshock, and the Josh Brolin western Jonah Hex.
