THF Soundwave says $300? Is that in a different currency?
I went to the site and saw Nazi action figures. Not even exaggerating...here's a $1000 1/6 scale Adolf Hitler figure, complete with art supplies.
This is weird, right?
Maybe? 1/6 collectors get a lot of historical figures, though. They'd need the historical villains too. WWII enthusiasts may just want a Hitler to punch.
It's not that weird in the context that the site carries 1/6 historical figures. I'd have a hard time believing that's being sold for hate purposes when the site also sells figures of MLK.
Yeah, not saying the site is a hate site or anything like that, and I dig the MLK and Churchill figures...but I could see people like Heath Hitler being all over the Hitler and Himmler figures. I guess it just makes me uncomfortable.
The one thing that made it weird for me was the art supplies. I've kept thinking about that. I don't think there's any reason to have a sensitive artist Hitler playset.
Here are the ones I was talking about...Hope this helps.

By no means am I advocating this figure, but the accessories aren't random: Paintings by Adolf Hitler - Wikipedia
Definitely not random, no...but oddly humanizing. Maybe it's a good thing to remember that the Nazis were human beings - awful ones, to be sure - but it's very...awkward. Cognitive dissonance, perhaps?
The only accessory I would want for an Adolf Hitler action figure would be a French maid costume and a large pineapple.
I know he was a painter, it just seems odd to include that. At least it didn't include a puppy for him to play with.
the puppy comes with mussolini obviously
Saw on another forum that someone found Trypticon at Ollie’s for 12.99. Said they took photos but I haven’t seen them. Forum is usually pretty legit.
Obligatory comment: I'll believe it when I see it!
im betting thats where the cogman wave will end up
12.99 trypticon, id army build that
maybe it's how hitler and nazis are perceived in asia. I read a similar article a while ago.
Is there a 1/6 Stalin on that site? I'd e curious to see a display of literal hitler vs stalin. Or the 1/6 churchill kicking hitler in the groin while smoking a cigar. I'm not paying for it myself though, i need a trypticon army now

Why, yes! Yes, there is! And Vladimir Putin, too!
I'm not one to complain about going "off-topic", but you guys seem hell-bent on discussing this, and it really deserves it's own thread. Also, I fear the longer you talk about it, the sooner we'll see a pro-Nazi jump on board and say something offensive.
In any event, it's not a deal, so...
Wal-Mart have none not surprised there selection sucks and there customer service Ollie’s didn’t know they sell transformers suppose someone have sell them with worlds largest toy store closing
Those were the 2015 discounts, I don't think that the first post is updated regularly with the current deals, would be nice I think it's asking a bit too much for one person to maintain that.
