The action figure of Cara Dune – the character played by Gina Carano in Star Wars spin-off series The Mandalorian – has been axed, according to reports.

The news comes after Carano was fired from the series following remarks she made on social media, comparing being a Republican to being Jewish under Nazi rule in Germany.

Though Hasbro, the company that makes the figure, has yet to comment, US retailer BigBadToyStore confirmed the move to The Hollywood Reporter.

“The Star Wars Black Cara Dune figure was released in 2020 and sold out not long after the inventory was received,” a spokeswoman said.

“Hasbro planned for another production run and we were accepting preorders from that production run. Due to recent events, Hasbro was no longer approved to produce any more of this figure.”

Carano was fired from The Mandalorian last week.

In a statement, Lucasfilm said that comments 'denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable'.

Carano, a former MMA star, has previously posted anti-mask comments, and also questioned the validity of the 2020 presidential election.

On Monday, it emerged that right-wing website and media company The Daily Wire was to fund a new film project from the actor.

She told Deadline: “The Daily Wire is helping make one of my dreams — to develop and produce my own film — come true. I cried out and my prayer was answered. I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob.

“I have only just begun using my voice which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same. They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them.”
