With The Haslab Black Series Rancor Looking Likely To Fail, Hasbro Indicates Extension Of Deadline Unlikely And Oola Never In The Cards

Jay Cochran - December 06, 2021
With less than 24hrs until Hasbro's Star Wars Black Series Rancor Haslab campaign and only having 5,688 of the minimum 9k backers needed to move forward, it is looking almost definitely like this campaign is going to go down in the toy history books as a failure.

Some are hoping, others have been expecting that Hasbro would extend the deadline for this campaign which we did see them do in 2020 for their Transformers: War For Cybertron Unicron campaign which eventually was fully funded. According to Hasbro's own Steve Evans who has been addressing people's questions about the project on his Instagram account this is likely not going to happen.

If you scroll through the comments of his Rancor post you will see him say multiple times to people asking for it to be extended that he does not expect it to be moved. Now some might be thinking he is just trying to scare folks into backing the project at the last minute, but I tend to believe what he is saying. At this point I think Hasbro has accepted the fact that the Rancor is not going to make it to the finish line.

As for a 6" Black Series Oola The Slave Girl figure being made, well again according to Steve it doesn't look like that was ever in the cards. Many have suspected that Disney was not OK having such a figure made and while he doesn't 100% confirm that, he seems to indicate that is in fact the case. He doesn't specifically say Disney but does suggest such a figure is not really an option these days.

I am sure over the coming days we will hear from all the talking heads and fans reasons for why this campaign failed and I do include myself among those who will be talking about this. While I would say there were a number of factors at play, the number 1 reason for why this campaign failed or will fail is simply because not enough people wanted it. That's not good or bad, just simply the way it is.

Hasbro's other active Haslab campaign for the G.I. Joe Skystriker also seems in extreme jeopardy of not making it. It has a little more time left on the clock with just a little over 24hrs to go before ending, but it only has 7,205 backers of the minimum 10k needed for that one to move forward.
