It appears that Hasbro has issued a statement about the situation with the Cara Dune action figures. The characters is played by Gina Carano who has been fired from “The Mandalorian” Star Wars show on Disney+.
Unlike other female figures from films like “The Last Jedi” the Cara Dune figures were in demand and many fans were trying to get either the Black Label version or the upcoming “Kenner style” figures.
Now that Lucasfilm fired the actress, without telling her first, Kenner is now in a bind about the release of more figures to meet the demand.
Here’s what Julie Duffy, Hasbro SVP Global Communications said:
“We’re thrilled to have the privilege of creating products featuring characters and stories from The Mandalorian for our fans. Hasbro has completed development of all season 1 and 2 product featuring Cara Dune, and there are no current plans to create more. We are actively working with our retail partners to address existing orders.”
They are saying they’re working with retail partners, but they’re also saying they aren’t going to create more. So to clarify, they aren’t making more and they will tell their retail partners they will get out what they have left but that’s it.
Hopefully they have the Kenner style ones manufactured already so the highly anticipated pre-order will still go out, but at this point who knows.
