The Chinese-made toys were marketed as “Falcon Commando” sets and cost up to £19 in a shop in People’s Park Centre shopping mall and online store Carousell.

They were removed from sale after the Straits Times asked retailers if the terror toys could lead to the glorification of ISIS.

The paper reported another online retailer, Brick Generals, also sold “militant” and “bomber” toys.

One of them was labelled as “ISIS Jihadi John“, and was described as an “extremist who enjoys blowing things up for fun.

“One day, he’ll blow himself up.”

Jihadi John, whose real name was Mohammed Emwazi, appeared in string of brutal videos depicting the savage execution of foreign hostages held by Islamic State.

The jihadi was born in Kuwait but moved to London at the age of six in 1994.

He and three other jihadi’s were nicknamed “the Beatles” by some of their captives because of their British accents.

He was killed by an airstrike in Syria in November 2015.

Both Carousell and and Brick Generals removed the horrifying toys from their websites.

A Lego spokeswoman said that the toys are “in no way affiliated with the Lego Group”.

She added: “As a company dedicated to inspiring and developing children, we would naturally never make a product like this.”

Professor Rohan Gunaratna, head of the International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research (ICPVTR), said: “The vendors need to be engaged to ensure they do not deliberately or ignorantly promote ISIS.”
