UPDATED: 1/9 7:00pm CST

Messages from a guy who listed a set and took it down a few hours later.
Told him I ordered a 10 character set and i wanted to know if he sold his set off ebay since he took it down.
him:"Has it been shipped? If you bought from toynk...its not coming."
me:"why would it not being coming, is that why you took yours down?"
him:"If you did indeed order from toynk, you can call me, I'll explain. I was on the phone with them for 2 hours....I'll save you some headache....some. 410-718-9991 Greg"
me:"what??? I will try to call after dinner. Do they not even have them?"
him:"They have some. You might be lucky, and actually have an order filled. I ordered 3 sets of an assorted 10 last night. They dont have one set for me. They have a hodgepodge of the rest of the characters, no Django. I was on the phone with them demanding they scrounge the entire warehouse and retail store, for anything, an opened display box, whatever....Nothing. They oversold by 200 orders."

okay so i talked with the people i bought my 10 character set from and they told me i will not be getting one right now. They said they oversold by alot and most of the orders will not be shipping out until late January. She told me i could cancel my order and get a refund, idk what to do. By that time i get them in i think the market will have settled down and there will be no room for profit.

very upset dicaprio and sam jack got no oscar nods for this movie. as good as christopher waltz's performance was, it was just a good guy version of hans landa.

Yeah, Indy I really appreciate it too! I've got my Schultz in hand and my django is apparently waiting at home for me. Got both for under $85 combined. Awesome collectors pieces that I would have never found in time without you. Thanks man!

Discontinued toys due to controversy sell really well, REALLY well. If you've got an extra $200 to wait until the TFAW set ships, I still think it's a good buy at $239 and they've still got pre-ordering available - I checked the UPC and it's the exact same set that was released in Jan. Could be a hidden gem.

Is the same UPC, but we may never see them..

The controversial “Django Unchained” action figures have officially been DISCONTINUED ... after several African American groups called for a boycott of the dolls ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the toy production tell us ... shortly after advocacy groups like Al Sharpton’s National Action Network and Project Islamic Hope spoke out against the figurines ... the Weinstein Company (which produced the film) reached out to the toy company and told them to put the kibosh on the toy line ASAP.

We're told the toy company agreed, insisting they never intended to offend anyone ... and halted production immediately.

Sources tell us ... the toymakers only released somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 dolls before shutting down production.

I noticed at Clark Toys, the sets say subject to availability, but the individual dolls don't..

Doesn't matter what photos they use, it's the SAME UPC. That's basically a bar code for products. It's the same one on the TFAW site as the ones we're seeing for sale. Same product. Doesn't mean TFAW will get them, but if they do, hopefully you have a pre-order in for a set or two.

That is why I am saying be careful guys

If you have some you KNOW are coming in then you should be fine. I am not even bothering ordering any online, I don't think they will get fulfilled.

Yes. They're blowing up right now as we type. I don't think we've seen the ceiling yet. I was there when Obama was on the cover of Spider-Man, and sales were off the hook, same kind of vibe I'm getting from this. I think we're gonna see some crazy sales over the weekend.
