Since our last show, rumors have “gone Rogue” regarding the first waves of 6″ Black Series set to launch on Force Friday 2.0. Reports of 6″ Ahsoka figure sightings are becoming more prevalent as well as the appearance of the Kmart Exclusive Rey figure. New lists of Funko POP! figures have leaked as well with huge support for Rogue One characters. All of this plus Sideshow, Disney Elite, LEGO, Tsum Tsum news & reveals and much more including our latest acquisitions on Episode #94 of The Realm Recap.
Sideshow has updated today with a preview of their 4-LOM Sixth Scale figure. Look for preorders to launch on next Thursday.
Our friends at Vinylmation World have posted official images of the upcoming assortment of Tsum Tsums for The Force Awakens. The mini collection will contain BB-8, Rey, Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren, Rey (Scavenger Outfit), Finn in Stormtrooper Outfit, First Order Stormtrooper, Poe Dameron and Finn. Head on over to check out the full details including medium and large size characters.
Thanks to Jenmarie / @acrossthestars for the alert.

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the Exclusive 2015 Premier Guild Gift Emperor Palpatine (The Empire Strikes Back) Mini Bust from Gentle Giant.
PROS: Sculpt and paint is well done – especially the robes – with a lot of texture and simulated cloth conveyed through the polyresin material. There are no brittle/thin parts (canes/fingers) to risk damage.
CONS: It is the most basic of the 3 available gift busts available for 2015 PG members. The likeness (while good) is not nearly as definitive as the Darth Sidious but is better than the Return of the Jedi sculpt from 2012. The relaxed pose doesn’t seem fitting for Empire more like something you’d see from The Phantom Menace.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this bust is worth adding to your collection.

A new arc is coming. Marvel’s Star Wars #20 will wrap up the current story, and issue #21 will launch a fresh adventure for our heroes and their foes. “The Last Flight of Harbinger” is set to introduce an elite group of Imperial stormtroopers who will prove to be quite the foil to the Rebels.

Now with almost 50 points of articulation!
Star Wars action figure collectors have a wealth of options. Whereas once we had only Kenner/Hasbro action figures, these days there are options in every scale and price point. One of those new figure lines is Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts 6-inch line. The price is double that of a Hasbro 6-inch figure, but is it worth it? On this episode of Star Wars Action News, Marjorie and Arnie give an in-depth review of the S.H. Figuarts First Order Stormtrooper, and tell you if it’s worth the price they paid!
