BASTAIN_DOLL_FINAL_3479808b

A toy company from China has been selling Nazi dolls that bear a striking resemblance to Bastian Schweinsteiger. The dolls are also called “Bastian” but Patrick Chan, a representative from the company, says it’s just a coincidence.

We offer no figures based on the football. The resemblance is purely coincidental. The figure is based on a typical German. We believe most Germans look like this. Bastian is a common name in Germany.
