Yeah, the original Legoland is in Billund. I've been there several times. It's pretty cool. The Dragon Ride is awesome.

You do realize that most Muslims would probably facepalm this, too, right?

I think you should make a new one because it offends me because I don't think it looks nice.

the play set modeled on the obese alien’s fictional home was culturally insensitive

Now what makes him obese? Maybe Jabba is actually quite skinny for his species, or maybe he's even hollow on the inside.

They won't even give Jabba a chance

It's obvious that only AMERICA can fabricate such a great toy. Don't believe the Danish lies. It's muslim propaganda.

This is dumb. Jabba's palace was designed in the 80s, it wasn't intended to offend anyone.

Yes, because the 80s were the pinnacle of political correctness.

The 80's wasn't a time rampant with Islamophobia. Regardless of whether or not the time period was concerned with political correctness or not, you'd have a tough time convincing me that it was meant as a mockery when it's much more likely that artists use foreign civilizations as influence for portraying other foreign civilizations. Middle Eastern architecture is pretty interesting stuff, so its apparent use/influence in a movie about aliens is most likely an artistic way of making something look more exotic. Come on, man, don't play the contrarian just for the sake of doing it.

Relax mate. I thought it was common knowledge that Lucas based his works on existing cultures.

Well, they filmed a bunch of the films in Tunisia iirc, no doubt they would have taken inspiration from the architecture of the place to create their alien world. Nothing wrong with that, doesn't seem malicious at all.

So they're pissed at Lego for making a set based on a building George Lucas picked out for a sci-fi movie 30 years ago...

Yep, their argument checks out.

"Group says"


Groups of people are always ****ing ******ed. I forgot which meme it was but it's a pictures that says something like "sometimes a tree is just a ****ing tree". That would be fitting right now.

Funny thing is that the Aya Sophia wasn't even built by muslims, but by Byzantines

Anyway, this is kinda old news, it happened two months ago or so. These kind of organisations aren't really representative I guess. Hell, they're not even real Turkish Turks

No, the mosque looks like Jabba's palace.

They should knock it down.

And they don't even have Rancor pits!

If you're gonna copy it, at least do it right for fuck's sake.

Well at least no anti-muslim parents will see it in their child's room, stomp on it with only socks on, reel backwards in seething horror-pain, then come back with a shotgun and start a war. Safety first and all.


I can totally visualize that part

You know, it kind of makes sense that a desert themed setting like Tatooine would be based on or influenced by middle eastern architecture and stuff, but Jabba's Palace really just looks like a bunch of huge silos

How about instead of knocking it down we put genetically modified worms and boars in it.
