A reddit user DarthCaloNord found that there is an unannounced exclusive Sphero R2-Q5 coming soon to Apple stores while scrubbing through the Sphero Droids app code. The product itself seems to be confirmed via this hidden page on Sphero’s website.

Thanks to Prensa Imperial for the heads up.

Rey Not to Be Included in Monopoly Set After All

Last year during the height of the #WheresRey campaign, Hasbro addressed parent/fan/collector concerns regarding the omission of Rey as a game piece in the Monopoly The Force Awakens Set.

Today, the Chicago Tribune has posted a follow-up and “due to insufficient interest”, the game won’t be updated to include her (in the U.S.). But all is not lost as the representative for Hasbro states that the piece was in fact made and is available through Hasbro’s Customer Service department.
