Gina Carano's 'Star Wars' Figures Have Been Scrapped by Hasbro
Published Feb 16, 2021As the fallout grows surrounding Disney's firing of Mandalorian actress Gina Carano, her Star Wars figure has now been scrapped.
Toymaker Hasbro has reportedly pulled the plug on Cara Dune figures as a direct result of Carano's unceremonious dismissal last week following a series of offensive social media posts. Hasbro didn't comment directly, but retailer BigBadToyStore told The Hollywood Reporter that the shop was forced to cancel all pre-orders for Cara Dune figures.
"The Star Wars Black Cara Dune figure was released in 2020 and sold out not long after the inventory was received," a spokeswoman for BigBadToyStore explained. "Hasbro planned for another production run and we were accepting pre-orders from that production run. Due to recent events, Hasbro was no longer approved to produce any more of this figure."
It's yet to been seen whether those Cara Dune figures out there in circulation already will tank in value or go the other way.
As previously reported, Disney fired Carano last week over her "abhorrent and unacceptable" anti-Semitic, transphobic, anti-mask social posts, though she already landed herself a new job.
