I think the Germans may have bigger problems…

German protest over Nazi toy soldiers on Amazon

A German father is campaigning online to stop Lego-style toy Nazi soldiers being sold on Amazon.

Manuel Hegel’s petition says the toys “represent officers, soldiers etc of the Waffen-SS and thereby trivialise National Socialism”.

The toys are sold by a German firm, CustomBricks, and Lego says they do not comply with Lego’s own values.

A Lego statement said the Danish toy firm “does not in any way sponsor or endorse the product – on the contrary”.

    Except that the model soldier in the picture is not a “Nazi”. The insignia on the helmet indicate that it represents a Wehrmacht soldier. If you’re gonna get your panties in a knot it’s good to at least know what you’re talking about.

      Everything White and German is NAZI!!!!
      Yes canminuteman, that’s just a regular German conscript that is fighting for his country.

      If CustomBricks really wants to tweak the left’s nose, they should start making Muslim immigrant New Year’s Eve rapist play sets, or Angela Merkel in an authentic STASI uniform, complete with informant files.

        There’s a parody Lego set box out there with a Marketplace Bollards so young children can depict modern Western city areas. I can’t find the picture to show you, sorry.

        Have to disagree. Everything WHITE is a Nazi. The left leaning groups…Take your pick…..Have declared that whites are (a) bigots (b) islamophobics (c) Nazis ( d) climate change deniers ( e) Anti BLM And (e) awful people. I probably missed some…..

      CustomBricks is a German company and complies with German law regarding Nazi symbols.

      Also, I don’t think many naive children will be given a lot of this stuff, it’s an adult interest type of product. A Lego-compatible Tiger II tank model from this firm (with one extra figure) costs €239 (US$280 = C$361).

      Honestly this stupid Manuel Hegel should be more concerned about the tide of immigrants who have a belief that Hitler should have completed his Jewish Holocaust, and that he should be converting, paying jizya, or dying at their hands.

    There are all sorts of Lego WW2 figures and vehicles, including for the Allies and the Soviets. I have no problem with these.

    • Watchman

      I wonder if this stupid Manuel Hegel has a petition out to ban the Soviet troop figures, given that Stalin killed more Russians than Hitler did?
