Lego have announced that the above Jabba The Hutt’s Palace set will no long be available for sale due to racism complaints raised by The Austrian Turkish Cultural Community.

The group complained that the set had similar characteristics to a mosque in Istanbul and portrayed it’s characters as deceitful criminals.

After Lego agreed to pull the set, The Austrian Turkish Cultural Community commented:

“We are very grateful and congratulate Lego on the decision from 2014 to take the Lego Star Wars product Jabba’s Palace out of production and no longer to have it on sale.”

Absolutely ridiculous…
