Turkish Muslims Accuse Lego Star Wars Toys as Racist

Muslims Claim Jabba's Palace Resembles Istanbul Mosque and is Racist


 The British online news site, Mail Online, also known as The Daily Mail, reports that
Lego has been accused of racism by the Turkish community over a Star Wars toy allegedly depicting  a mosque.
The critics claim that the Jabba's Palace model, part of Lego's Star Wars range, offends Muslims as it resembles the Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul - one of the world's most renowned mosques.
Members of the Turkish Cultural Community of Austria group also accused the toy manufacturer of depicting Asians as having 'deceitful and criminal personalities'.
Personally, I think this is absurd because the Jabba Palace is based on the 1983 Star Wars series by Lucas Film and to date not one Muslim has ever publicly pissed and moaned about it.  It seems to me that Muslim organizations these days tend to piss and moan about too much, and Jabba's Palace looks NOTHING like the Hagia Sophia Mosque, not even remotely similar.

Here's Jabba's Palace in the Lucas Film, Star Wars;

And here's the Lego Star Wars toy version of Jabba's Palace;

Finally, here's a photo of the Hagia Sophia Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey;

As you can see, Jabba's Palace does not look anything like the Haiga Sophia Mosque.  Perhaps Islam should be called "the religion of pissing and moaning about everything" instead of "the religion of peace", which it clearly is not. 

For Christ's sake, it's just a toy based on a movie of fictional events with fictional characters.

 
I need to point out that Islam is a religion, not a race, therefore any criticism of it can not be considered racist, never mind a child's toy being racist. racist - a person with a prejudiced belief that one race is superior to other races.

Chica Plush from The Sunny Side Up Show on Sprout is Here

Chica Plush from The Sunny Side Up Show on Sprout is Here


A few days ago I wrote a post here about the Chica Plush Toy becoming available again, this after being long sold out due to unscrupulous and shady resellers buying all the Chica Plush up at their original price of $14.99 only to resell them on ePay and Amazon for anywhere from $69 to $300.

Now they are available again for as low as $18 and since I wrote about ordering the Chica Plush for my daughter, I decided to write about it again because Chica showed up in the mail today, and considering, GOOD LUCK to the SCAMMER malonimom on Amazon who thinks he or she is gonna get $300 for a Chica Plush now available for $18, LOL .

This Chica Plush toy by Fiesta Toys is the real deal, complete with squeak and official tag with Chica and the Sprout logo from SproutOnline.com.

Originally, I thought perhaps it might be some sort of cheap knockoff or copy, however, this was not the case. This is the REAL CHICA PLUSH TOY and my daughter is THRILLED. 

She wanted me to take photos of her with her new Chica Plush, but I'm kinda wary about posting her photo here on this blog, so, I blocked out her face so I can show off the Chica Plush I ordered from Amazon, from seller Gifts From a Distance.   It was shipped out immediately and arrived via first class mail only a few days after.  The photo is linked to the full size hi-res photo so you can see the detail.  If you're looking to buy the Chica Plush Toy from the Sunny Side Up Show on Sprout, please use the links within this post to purchase it on Amazon as I earn a 4% commission on any sales generated.  Thank you.

Sprout Chica Plush Toy. My Daughter is Going to Be SO HAPPY!

Sprout Chica Plush Toy. My Daughter is Going to Be SO HAPPY!

Chica Sprout
Awhile back I wrote about Getting Raped by Scamazon Sellers for Chica Sprout Plush Stuffed Toy, so, as a result of that post I was pretty much accustomed to getting internet traffic from people looking for the popular Chica doll at an affordable price since it was sold out due to the shady scumbag resellers buying them all up only to resell them for as much as $300 on Amazon as well as on eBay, etc.

Today however, I noticed an increased amount of traffic from visitors looking for the Chica Sprout Plush Toy, so, I decided to check and see if any new Chica Sprout toys have been produced and I am ECSTATIC that a Chica Plush Toy has been produced by Fiesta Toys, available on Amazon for only $17, and lucky for me I still have $21 remaining on my Amazon Gift Card, so, I immediately bought the Chica Sprout Plush Toy for my six year old daughter who loves Chica so much.

She is graduating kindergarten next Friday, so, this will be a great surprise gift for her, and I KNOW she will be thrilled to have Chica in her arms.  She's gonna be so happy, and I am happy to finally get one for her. :)

Note 6/11/2012.  Chica Plush arrived in the mail today, purchased from the seller linked in the post above and my little girl is ECSTATIC.  It's the real Chica Sprout, and squeeks too. :)

Getting Raped by Scamazon Sellers for Chica Sprout Plush

Getting Raped by Scamazon Sellers for Chica Sprout Plush Stuffed Toy

Chica Plush from the PBS Sprout Sunnyside up Show

My five year old daughter is turning six this weekend.  Her favorite show to watch on TV is PBS Sprout Sunnyside Up Show.  She loves Chica.  Yesterday afternoon, she comes running into my office to tell me that for her birthday present, she wants the Chica Plush toy from Sprout.  I decided to look it up to see where it was sold and was shocked at the $49.99 price tag on Amazon.  I decided to look elsewhere and the only other place I found it was on eBay, for $47.99 shipped.

 I decided that the price is just too damn high for a little stuffed animal, and told my daughter that it's just too expensive.  This morning however, considering that I have a $30 Amazon Gift Card that's been sitting unspent for the past several months, I decided to log on to Amazon to purchase the Chica Plush toy for my daughter seeing as it would only cost me an additional $20 from my credit card, but, I was disappointed to find out that the seller RAISED THE PRICE an additional $10 and that it's now $59.99.  These mother fuckers are raping people.  I learned from Sprout's Facebook Page that the Chica Plush toy was available for $14.99 and that these scamming toy resellers on Amazon and eBay bought them all up, causing the item to appear sold out, and then they relisted them at $59.99 up to $69.99 for the Christmas shopping frenzy.

I am pissed about this, because I want to make my daughter happy, and I want her to have the Chica stuffed toy, because she loves Chica, and I love my daughter, but damn, this is just too much money to spend on a little stuffed animal and I am poor.  The damn nerve of these scumbag resellers and their dirty scams.  One of the sellers even uses the name Kings Ransom, which is pretty much a clear indication that he's mocking buyers, flaunting the fact that he's a scammer with excessively high rip off prices.  The damn nerve of these scammers to resell the Chica stuffed toy at such excessively rip off prices.
