Following Gina Carano‘s removal from the galaxy far, far away – Hasbro has halted production on Cara Dune merch!
Hasbro has executed Order 66 on Cara Dune. Following Gina Carano’s removal from the role after a string of controversial posts on social media, the toy giant has halted production on her action figure. It is uncertain whether this termination extends to all toy lines. But the end of production order has definitely hit the Black Series 6″ line.
DUNE AND OUT
Big Bad Toy Store is reporting that pre-orders for the figure will now go unfulfilled. They reported:
We have been informed by Hasbro that they have canceled the 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.

This sudden halt in production will undoubtedly trigger a tidal wave of re-sales on eBay. The figure was a hot item at the height of her fame. But now, with Carano all but banished from the galaxy far, far away, those wanting to get their hands on her action figure are facing an uphill battle. And, as of press time, there is still no word from Lucasfilm about the future of the character. Some fans are calling for her to be re-cast. Others expect her to be written out completely.
But in truth, until Lucasfilm weighs in on the subject we can only speculate about what the future holds. Are you hoping to see Cara Dune recast? Drop us a line in the comments section and join in the chat.
