It’s being rumored that Hasbro might be cancelling its upcoming Star Wars action figures based on Cara Dune, Gina Carano’s character in The Mandalorian, following the actress’ dismissal from the Disney+ series earlier this week.
Twitter user @TheComixKid has posted what appears to a message from online retailer BigBadToyStore that the Star Wars: The Black Series figures based on Cara Dune will not be shipping and pre-orders have been cancelled. BigBadToyStore states that “Hasbro has canceled production” of the 6″ figure based on Carano’s likeness.

The message reads…
We have been informed by Hasbro that they have cancelled production of the Star Wars: The Black Series 6″ Cara Dune (The Mandalorian) and will not be fulfilling our order. Unfortunately, this means we must cancel our pre-orders for this item. We apologize for the inconvenience and greatly appreciate your understanding.
It’s unclear if the Kenner-style 3.75″ Retro Cara Dune is also cancelled, although Twitter is already speculating that it might be.

Carano’s controversial firing over an Instagram post has already seen her fans lashing out against Disney for the decision. It does appear that her “cancellation” from the Star Wars franchise is going to be complete.
Cara Dune will be quietly swept under the rug, and likely all merchandise with her likeness will be discontinued.
