If you're a collector o' memorabilia or receive lots of movie-related christmas gifts you've probably already seen, received or ordered the complete set of Django Unchained dolls from NECA. They're 8", poseable with cloth clothes based on the costumes designed by former Oscar nominee Sharen Davis (Dreamgirls, Ray) who could be nominated again for Tarantino's explotation flick. I've paired the Schultz, Candie and Stephen dolls below because Michael and I kept telling you that Samuel L Jackson was the movie's standout despite what movie awards have been saying. But now that you've seen the movie, you can say who you think is best!
So curious to know how you'll vote!
As for the dolls... I've read a few articles about them and none have yet answered the spoilery but standard doll question: Anatomically Correct? more
[SPOILER] I mean how are you even going to restage reimagine the movie at home with your dolls if you can't undress Django and have Billy grabbing his huge ween in one hand with a knife in the other whilst Stephen monologues at him!?! How!?
But never mind. I just realized they don't include the Billy doll in this set (Walton Goggins was robbed. I don't even remember "Butch" in the movie but he gets a doll.) so there'll be no castration-anxiety for this 8" Django toy even if he is anatomically intact. [/SPOILER]
This doll set made me think of this hilarious tweet from Fake Michael Haneke on Twitter.

Speaking of weird movie-related junk, apparently you can play Street Fighter-like arcade games with the Les Misérables characters somewhere in this mad mad mad world...
This is the only video I've seen on the game but I am DYING to know what Cosette or Eponine's special combo attacks were? Drowning their opponents with tears? What? And why can't you play Fantine or Gavroche or one of the zombie whores?
If you know please end my suspense in the comments.
