realmrecap_news

One. Hundred. Episodes. On this milestone episode of The Realm Recap, Flyguy and I bring you the latest in Star Wars collecting news from Hasbro, Hot Toys, Funko, and more. We’re still waiting with anticipation for Hasbro to finally, officially, reveal their exclusive(s) for SDCC, but in the meantime, they are teasing something special for July 6. Do you know what it is? (Leave a comment if you have a guess). We also discuss the expanding line of Funko POP!s that have started hitting online and in store over the past week. Hot Toys made new (and spendy) news this week with that announcement of new sixth scale figures from The Force Awakens. Are they the best figures yet? Listen to find out our opinion. And finally we run down the latest news breaking with several official announcements regarding Rogue One characters and image revealed via Entertainment Weekly. All of this and much, much more on Episode 100 of The Realm Recap!

The line kicks off with Kylo Ren (#01), First Order Stormtrooper (#02), Captain Phasma (#03),  BB-8 (#04), R2-D2 (#05) and Chewbacca (#06).

You can order these figures now through sites like HobbyLink Japan and BBTS for around $15 each.

Episode 474: We’re Down To Buy Figuarts

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!

And also on this week’s show, the hosts review Kotobukiya’s Art-FX+ First Order Stormtrooper statue 2-pack.  Listen in to find out why this may be a statue collection you want to troop build!
With a complete run down of all US Blu-ray releases of The Force Awakens, news of an upcoming prototype Elite Series figure, and the latest rumors for 2016’s Force Friday event, it’s all on this Star Wars Action News!
And also check out Star Wars Action News’ crowdfunding campaign on Podbean! We want to make the show better and bring back the full video podcasts, but we need your help to make it happen!
