Your Eyes Can Deceive You. Don’t Trust Them.

There seems to be a touch of confusion surrounding the Celebration Exclusive 6″ Luke Skywalker in regard to the card back. The photography shown on HasbroToyShop today doesn’t convey the reflective quality of the special foil treatment it has, leading to claims that the card back is different. We can confirm that it is the EXACT SAME as what was sold at Star Wars Celebration. The two products were simply photographed under different lighting conditions and at different angles. DO NOT overpay for the Celebration Exclusive “foil card” version.

Episode #71: Elusive Exclusive


The Realm Recap returns this week with the latest in Star Wars collecting news. On this episode, Flyguy and I discuss the availability (or lack thereof) of the SDCC Exclusive First Order Stormtrooper that was briefly available on HasbroToyShop.com last week – plus new merchandising and marketing hitting stores prior to Force Friday. Christmas in July was clearly on Gentle Giant’s mind as they revealed their holiday themed Jumbo Salacious Crumb for PG Members. Did this cause you to laugh maniacally? LEGO leaks continue to trickle out as another list of products for 2016 hit the web with a couple interesting reveals. With Episode VII news, Rogue One filming about to begin and our developing addiction to Topps’ Card Trading app, Episode #71 of The Realm Recap is “groomed” for your enjoyment.

Hasbro Toy Shop Price Hike


After listing some upcoming 3.75″ scale Black Series figures for $9.99 last week, Hasbrotoyshop.com has bumped up the price by three bucks.  Special thanks to forum member darth_sidious for this information.

Personal Note:  As for myself, I was on the fence with Chewbacca and Dutch at $9.99, but a $12.99 price tag turns me into not wanting those particular figures in the least.  And definitely not the Vader.  All of these are basically retreads or are using mostly existing parts, and for that much money, Hasbro needs to do better.  Disagree?  Share your thoughts after the jump!
