Well Yeah, Hasbro is not going to put on the back of the card "The Tonnika Sisters Brea and Whomever are mega sluts looking to hit up horny, and hopefully rich, Mos Eisley Cantina members weary from their space travels.  Brea likes doing it one way and the other likes it another.  If the space smuggler is rich enough and the sisters are in the mood both can be had for one night of titilating pleasure for the right price!!!" 

They would make up something completely different and tame.

Tonnika sisters = Pegwarmer poison like Yarna.  Kids will be who are these characters ?  Hasbro and Lucasfilm plan this so they would be a loop hole in the legal action... that my theory I know it says that in the article.

Oh please. They would sell thru as fast as the ice cream maker guy. Even my five year old knows who the Tonnika sisters are. They are the ones that created the big metal dump trucks!

That could describe kids' reactions to some  figures already made in the vintage collection, and who cares what kids want in that regard? Hasbro's decided movie heroes is the kids line.

It still doesn't fix the problem that the actress could sue. She would lose the lawsuit but Lucasfilm and Hasbro would still have to pay for the defense. So it just isn't worth the trouble for them. If it was they would have made the one that they do have the likeness rights to already.

Adidas beat VW to the Cantina with this spot.  But curiously the Tonnika's were cut out of that.  ::)

Christine Hewett (the one in blue) played Brea Tonnika died back in 2007. Angela Staines (the one in green) played Senni Tonnika only made ANH and Queen Kong in '76. We don't know if she is alive or dead. I really don't see why this couldn't be done by Hasbro.

I met Christine Hewett once (mentioned early in this thread).  She swore that it was no issue to her if they made an action figure of her character.  None at all.

I'm really starting to think that this entire thing with the lawsuit and the no comment business is some sort of inside joke at Hasbro that's been going on for years, and that at some point they're going to just randomly announce that they're on the way.

Angela Staines?  Who knows... but the notion that there's an actress (well, barely) out there who is so hell bent on no one making an action figure of a character she spent 4 seconds on screen portraying 35 years ago also strikes me as absurd.

Totally freaking nonsensical.

So yeah, I think Hasbro's trolling.  There you go....

Yeah, the whole thing just sounds ridiculous... like it's Hasbro's excuse for not making them. 

Geeze, all they needed to do was make some sort of a 2-pk of them, even reference art concepts if they have to... nearly the same sculpt for both chicks, and it would have been easy money for Hasbro... if we ever see them, I bet it's an exclusive at SDCC or something of that nature.

I made some customs of these many years ago... at the time, I really liked them but they are pretty outdated.  I might try my hand and making new versions.

I think they'd be perfect figures for a show exclusive.  --edited--
