This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

What a shitshow. I was hoping Mandalorian would be a turning point for Disney/Lucasfilm, but it's looking like a brief anomaly, crushed by the upper management in favor of getting back to pissing on the fans and running the franchise into the ground.

The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

Also, Hasbro announced that they cancelled all their upcoming Cara Dune figures, which pretty much shatters that fantasy that Hasbro will get sick of WotC's wokeness and step in to fix D&D. They clearly care more about politics than profit.

And the collectors have already started making a run on the online stores for the existing figures, I'm assuming in the hopes that they'll be collectible due to rarity and the controversy.

Today, when I search for Funko Pop Dune, all that shows up is this:
