Episode #75: Kmart’s Kylo Confusion

realmrecap_news

We are one week past Force Friday, but the aisles look like the week before. The desired product is virtually wiped out with only drips and drabs of stock replenishment taking place. To add further insult to injury, Kmart set many collectors up for failure in trying to obtain their exclusive 6″ Kylo Ren by launching a very early Sunday morning preorder. Is there hope for the modern day collector in this environment?  We also discuss some of the latest product reveals from figures and vehicles to more exclusives. All this and much more on episode #75 of The Realm Recap!

On Friday, Sept. 4 at 12:01 am in your time zone Force Friday begins!

This event is the worldwide launch of new Star Wars toys and collectibles for the upcoming film: Star Wars: The Force Awakens. New products from Hasbro, LEGO, Mattel, Funko and others will be officially for sale at midnight store openings around the globe.

While Lucasfilm has been heavily promoting this event with YouTube tie-ins and events at Toys”R”Us in Times Square, they are less forthcoming with what new toys will be available. Only three days away from the massive shopping event most collectors only know what to expect on shelves through various leaks online.

Until now.

A coalition of Star Wars collecting fan sites have joined Forces to compile all known releases into the Force Friday Product Checklist.

The sites that contributed are Boba Fett Fan Club, Idle Hands, Jedi News, Jedi Temple Archives, Mint In Box, Star Wars Action NewsTeekay-421 and Yakface.

So prepare your Friday shopping spree, download the Force Friday Product Checklist! Be sure to check back as the list will be revised as new items are revealed up until Force Friday.

Thanks to everyone that helped make this list possible, especially those fans that read our respective sites.

Both should be available at Target on Force Friday.
