With the release of Star Wars Episode VII in the imminent horizon, it’s easy to see a massive flooding of merchandise related to this beloved movie franchise. Generations of fans wait in great anticipation for the space saga’s latest installment entitled “The Force Awakens.”

One single father, however, is not as enthusiastic particularly because of one Star Wars action figure that recently caught his attention.

Fred Hill was shopping at the Target Store with his daughters when he saw Hasbro’s Slave Leia action figure.

Hill was completely caught off-guard when his youngsters started asking questions. “They’re like ‘Dad why does this doll have a chain around its neck?’ I don’t have any answers. I was just blown away looking at it,” the single father said.

As movie geeks can easily tell, this scantily-clad version of Princess Leia Organa depicts that time when she was captured by Jabba the Hutt.

Still, Hill insists that the figure is “pretty inappropriate.” He continued “I got 2 daughters I don’t need seeing that crap.”

Other parents also shared their comments about the toy in question. “It’s a little indecent. A little more clothing would have helped,” spoke Eugenia Mirica.

"It's true to the scene but I don't know if I would purchase this for my girls," Allison Degarmo said.

The toy’s box clearly implies that this is a product aimed for kids ages 4 and up. Most of the parents argue that this specific figure is obviously geared towards adult toy collectors.

When reached for a response, Target stated “We have not received any other guest complaints about this product. If the guest has a question we recommend they reach out directly to Target’s guest relations team.”

Hasbro has yet to comment about the issue. In the mean time, the Slave Leia action figure continues to be sold in many toy stores, both physical and online, across the world.

How about you? Would you allow your child to play with this toy? Why or why not? Sound off in the comment section and let’s talk about it.

Do you ever wish to go back to your childhood days even for a brief moment just to feel energized and alive again? Sometimes, with the hardships we encounter and the burden put on our shoulders as adults, we tend to feel lifeless, tired and dull as we go through life.

It is nice to stop for a while, breath and laugh again, especially if you have been working so hard all your life. We think the best way to do that is to feel like a child again -- carefree, enthusiastic and contented with simple things. When we were kids, all we could ever wish for is to watch our favorite show, go on a trip to the toy store or eat our cotton candy. Maybe, going back to those moments even for a few minutes will help us stir our inner joy and come out of life anew

In this video we found, shoppers were surprised to see shadows coming from a store that is still under construction. Soon enough, many people gathered in front of the store and when the doors opened, an enchanting turn of events happened!

In fact, the movie quickly made a record for being the second-biggest opening for an animated film as it earned $115.2 million in North America. The undefeated record holder is still Shrek the Third (2007) which made $121.6 million on its opening weekend.

What do John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Paul McCartney (The Beatles), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), and Johnny Greenwood (Radiohead) have in common?

Well aside from being accomplished and best selling musicians, each of these rockers are all multi-instrumentalists -  musicians who can play at least two or more musical instruments.

Take Dave Grohl, for instance, who played all the instruments (except the guitar parts of a single song) on all the 15 tracks for his post-Nirvana demo. Later on, he enlisted band members to play with him during live shows and they’ve since become one of the biggest bands in the planet. Dave also plays various instruments on many other side projects such as Probot, Them Crooked Vultures, and Queens of the Stone Age.
