Hasbro Cancels Cara Dune Figures?!?

Recommended Posts

The folks over at Yakface are reporting that in light of the news earlier this week about LucasFilm and The Mandalorian actress Gina Carano going their seperate ways, Hasbro is canceling most of their upcoming planned Cara Dune figures.

According to the report, the planned reissues of the 6″ Black Series and Vintage Collection figures have been cancelled. The previously announced 3 3/4" Retro figure which was probably to far along in the production process to cancel is apparently still coming.

It should come as no surprise to folks, but in light of all this recent news this week, secondary market prices on eBay for any Cara Dune figure has gone up exponentially. Whether any of these figures maintain any kind of long-term value after all the dust settles remains to be seen.

 

MOD NOTE: This thread is about the canceling of action figures, not about why or should the actress have been fired. As long as people stay on topic and be civil to one another the thread will remain open for discussion. Like the previous thread related to the topic, at any point this goes off the rails the thread will be closed.

I got the Black Series version when it first came out. I was on the fence about purchasing it since the series hadn't premiered yet but the figure was selling out a lot. I liked the design and how the figure came out so I got it. Then the series premiered and I was happy with the character so I was even more glad I got it.

I'm very glad I was able to get a Black series Cara Dune early on. They were already quite expensive on eBay or even Amazon before all this went down. Now....who knows?

The Cara Dune figure is one of my favorites. I think Hasbro did a great job capturing the likeness of the actress and just the general quality of the figure.

I was wondering, wasn't Cara Dune Peg-warmer or am I wrong? 

In my area she sold the most after The Mandalorian figure, this was shortly after the Triple Force Friday. I don't know if it was that way in other places.

I was just recently thinking about collecting the new suit Mando and Cara black series. But now all my Star Wars hopes and dreams down the drain. How do I tell Darth Vader that he is my sole Star Wars figure and will remain so? Maybe I can purchase a storm trooper and let him tell Vader the bad news.

Get a Second Sister Inquisitor figure she pairs up nicely with Darth Vader.

Wow, talk about getting the boot. Even collectors are feeling the kick and we didn't do anything. Most certainly an unfortunate set of events.

You may recall back in 2021 that Hasbro seemed to stop producing Kara Dune action figures after the actress who played the character came into conflict with Disney. Well looks like she may be back at least in action figure form. Alex lets us know he saw the figure on sale recently at the London Disney store. How widely available the figure becomes remains unknown but if you still need this one, you may want to keep your eyes open for it.

I feel like there's a bit of a difference between "sold by Disney" and "sold at a London Disney Store." One implies they'd be selling that at multiple Disney Stores and on ShopDisney.com and the other that they just found some figures and put them on the shelf.
