st Unverified special report: Is this the reason for no TFA Luke?

May 24, 2016, 09:09:10 PM by dj121
This "Special Report" comes from information given by an industry insider. In this article is the supposed real reason why we have yet to receive a TFA Luke figure across any Hasbro line. The article comes to us from The Midichloriancount.

Take it with a grain of salt, but bases on what the article says, I would not be the least bit surprised, as it refers to an employee trying to call out the Hasbro Star Wars brand manager on character selection. True or not, it makes for an interesting read. To check it out and form your own opinion, click below for the jump!
