Others have managed, but it's in how they market it. The Tonnika sisters are the Tonnika sisters... I dunno how Hasbro would get around that I guess and the actresses probably have that cornered.
The Tonnika Sisters are not the Tonnika sisters. Those names did not exist when A New Hope was released, they were created by West End Games. As such the marketing doesn't have to say that the figures created are from the Cantina scene, just background characters from the SW universe. Easy to get around I think, I just don't think Hasbro is really interested in making 2 female characters who were on screen for about 2 seconds, that's what it all comes down to.
I think it might have to do with their original "working names" from the movie: Star whores. That would put me off from making toys of them.
