Episode #99: Summertime Sadness

realmrecap_news

Despite the majority of retail outlets being devoid of new products on shelves, there are still a few surprises as online retailers are receiving a “new” 6″ version of Rey – which may be just different enough to make you mad/sad. Funko continue to promote like no other brand as teases for the next Smuggler’s Bounty box have sparked some discussion of potential for new characters. The biggest (and most spendy) news of last week was the announcement of an ultra-high end tier of prop replicas from Propshop – the manufacturer responsible for the very same screen used props in The Force Awakens. And finally, we close out Episode #99 with a few new acquisitions to tide us over until the next “must-have” item comes along.
