    So, with the Gina Carano blow up, I started looking at figure prices on Ebay. One type--the 3.75 Carbonite--went from $30 on Friday, to $50, and now $100 per figure. It's crazy to watch.

    Disney doesn't get money from eBay sales though...

    I had a six-inch Black series Cara Dune (new from a toy distributor) on order and it was canceled.

    But someone had to originally buy it. And they can monitor these sales to know people are still buying things.

    There's still a chance Hottoys or sideshow could make Cara figures/statues, I'll hold out hope for that.

    I didn't put this in the original post, but Disney already announced they will be making no more Gina/Cara figures, hence why the 6 inches Black series orders are canceled.

    Btw. $109 and $159, for buy it now prices, of the 3.75 inch figs... it's sad and crazy.

    What is interesting is…..wondering if Disney has totally cut ties with everything cara dune, including property rights. I mean their message when it happened was “we are totally done with the character and she will be expunged from all references going forward”

    so what is stopping anyone from making and selling their own cara dune figure now?

    Prices dropped and seem kinda stabilized, but I'm sure it will jump back up.
