Hmm, let's do the math...
Major toy company makes figures of prostitutes
Again, aside from a couple ardent fanboys, no one knows they're prostitutes, nor would they likely be advertised as such, so that's not a concern.
Figures of prostitutes have bio on cardback
Doubtful. It'd likely look the exact same as the bio they have up on the Official Site that Scott just showed.
Character bio finds it's way into the media
I think that's going a tad overboard there. Their bios are already as much in the media as they're ever going to be at this point, around the various sites online. I don't think CNN or local news will be running breaking news stories on a hooker figure developed by Hasbro for their Star Wars action figure line.
Public Relations Disaster
Not gonna happen. Way over dramatic there, Nick. ****, they already made a figure of a drug dealer (Elan), you think that's any better than a couple supposed hookers? They made a couple of "sex slave" figures too, in Oola and Slave Leia. Again, no biggie. Nobody cares
that they're possibly
hookers. It was just a silly rhyming nickname ("Star whores") made up by the filming crew. If the Tonnika sister's bios have been up on StarWars.com for some time now, and are in the reference books and other EU stuff, where Lucasfilm knows kids are already viewing and reading, then this is a completely moot point. If they're not concerned about that
, then they're not
concerned about this issue in regards to their figure(s). Think about it.
