The Realm Recap returns after an extended weekend with our take on the latest news in Star Wars collecting. This week, we discuss new images for the upcoming waves of 6” Black Series and 3.75” Rebels Saga Legends figures and vehicles, Hot Toys official launch of their sixth scale Han Solo and Chewbacca; plus announcements from Kotobukiya, Hallmark and more. We also discuss the debut of the Star Wars Rebels movie – does it have the “spark” to ignite a new generation of fans/collectors or will they “rebel”. Finally, we touch on recent Episode VII rumors and leaks including our first look(?) at a new Stormtrooper from the sequel trilogy.

For collectors curious about whether or not there was going to be a Hallmark exclusive ornament at Gold Crown Stores next month I received official confirmation from customer service saying the following:
We are very sorry, but unfortunately we do not have a Star Wars Keepsake ornament available this year for Ornament Premiere, Debut or Holiday Open House.
We appreciate your interest in Hallmark and hope we were able to help you.
