Oh. My. God.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm laughing my ass off.

"The controversial miniature figure, created by Seattle-based Will Chapman as part of his BrickArms military fighters line, is a bearded militant with a face-covering hood, a tiny toy assault rifle, a little grenade launcher and plastic bombs that can be attached to an explosives belt...The jarring toy has outraged the British Muslim organization known as the Ramadhan Foundation, which called the figurine "absolutely disgusting," according to Sky News."

My Dad found this a few minutes ago. Laughing

Laughing thats I guess...DUMB!, but I admit, a little funny! Razz they shouldn't be angry at BA though... My dad thinks that they shouldn't be promoting the terrists that fight the U.S. or stuff like that...

Well, I don't think anyone wants them to promote the terrorists fighting our soldiers. The point is, the minifigure isn't intended as a terrorist, but as a general badguy. The viewing of the fig comes from each individual person. So if anything comes out of this, I'll be purely surprized.

I get why someone might be a little upset about the bandit, but the German figs? There are plenty of German action figures, and thats basically what minifigs are, I think that writer is an idiot...
