Hasbro has officially weighed in on the discontinuation of the Cara Dune The Mandalorian action figure post Gina Carano’s social media controversy and firing from Lucasfilm.
News went wild over the last two days about this, spurred by a customer service note from fanboy toy retailer BigBadToyStore, however, Hasbro hadn’t provided any specific statement or confirmation about the action figure no longer being available.
“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,” said Hasbro SVP of Global Communications Julie Duffy today.
Some insiders told us that we weren’t apt to see a lot of season 2 Mandalorian action figures since the series isn’t coming back for a while; spinoff The Book of Boba Fett will be dropping this fall instead. It sounds like that’s the case as Hasbro is specifically canceling Cara Dune toys.
Carano in a recent interview said that she learned of her dismissal from The Mandalorian on social media. She also claimed that she wasn’t included in the season 2 press for the Disney+ series after she decided not to use their apology statement for her online mockery over non-binary pronouns.
Last Friday, Deadline broke the news that the former MMA fighter and Deadpool actress is now working on a new movie with Ben Shapiro and The Daily Wire.
