You're most likely right. One of the many reasons I don't trust Mattel with a line that I want to see and collect.
Even Hasbro has its moments with female characters in the Star Wars universe, and if it weren't for fan and collector zeal and borderline threats they wouldn't produce some of the female figures they do.
Is Mon Mothma of the Rebel Alliance a runaway hit with mass appeal? Hell naw.
She pegwarms like she's gunning for a prize. But the fans want every character with a pulse and central nervous system turned into plastic, and Hasbro learned long ago that if they don't make it we'll bitch and rampage until they do.
