It turns out Star Wars fans are not at all interested in the Moses Ingram Reva Lightsaber from Hasbro from the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus series, which really isn’t a surprise.
Hasbro has a program where they crowdfund certain products under its Haslab brand that are considered on the higher-end of toys and such. For example, I helped crowdfund the Hasbro Galactus figure which looks pretty awesome and comes with all kinds of extras. Galactus was backed by over 30k fans and should be released sometime in the next few months. I can’t wait.
However, as seen below, the Moses Ingram Reva Lightsaber couldn’t even reach 5000 backers as it didn’t even reach 30% of its goal, so that means Star Wars fans just aren’t interested. Those Star Wars fans did back projects for Jabba’s Sail Barge and the Razor Crest but also didn’t back the Rancor project (which came up short by less than 500).
I’m guessing in part why the Moses Ingram Reva Lightsaber failed to deliver by so much for Hasbro is due to Disney, Lucasfilm, the actress, and Ewan McGregor making things all about racism instead of promoting Reva as a badass cool character. So what happened is that all the woke lecturing turned off a lot of fans, as 99% of the Star Wars fans aren’t racist, but Disney and Lucasfilm made it all about that.
My question: Where are all the woke Star Wars fans from Twitter and why didn’t they support the Hasbro Moses Ingram Reva Lightsaber?
Unfortunately, the Star Wars The Black Series Reva (The Third Sister) Force FX Elite Lightsaber did not reach the minimum backing goal needed to move into development. Thank you to all of the fans who supported this project and every fan who shared their passion and enthusiasm. pic.twitter.com/HiQmlURzVp
