The Realm Recap is back after the Memorial Day Weekend bring and in our absence, there were plenty of developments in collecting.

Is it legit??? Also this week, new store finds from LEGO, product news for Disney Infinity 3.0, custom 6″ figures and vehicles as well as a new character name revealed fro The Force Awakens! It’s all on Episode 63 of The Realm Recap!
