This question from anotheR Site this week got me wondering (I've trimmed it down):
Huh?Rebelscum.com: What are the chances we'll see action figures based on...my personal favorite....Tyvokka the Wookiee?
Hasbro: As for Tyvokka, he remains one of the figures that is off limits to us and will not be produced.
I know about the Tonnikas, due to the likeness issue. And the Holiday Special is supposedly completely off-limits, never mind that they've actually made two figures from it. (I've given up trying to figure out Hasbro's deal with the Holiday Special.)
This is the first I've heard of Tyvokka being off limits. I didn't even recognize the name and looked him up.
A Wookiee Jedi Master from a Dark Horse comic is off limits? Anyone have any clue why this might be? Can't be a rights issue, as there's no actor portraying him. And the series he's from (Republic) has given us a few figures already in comic packs, so it's not the series in general.
And are the any other characters who we may as well stop even thinking of because they're taboo?
