New LEGO news leaked this week regarding several sets tied to The Force Awakens and it looks like we’ll be getting gray bricks as far as the eye can see. Disney announced additional info for the next Disney Infinity expansion which focuses heavily on the Original Trilogy and its characters. All of this plus comic news, Star Wars Weekends merchandise, a “leaked” product hitting Mexico from The Force Awakens and more on Episode #64 of The Realm Recap.

It’s all on Episode 63 of The Realm Recap!
