Once again, The Realm Recap return this week with the latest in Star Wars collecting. This week, we discuss various reveals and store reports for the Hasbro, as well as new product announcements from Hot Toys, S.H.Figuarts, Kotobukiya and more. Finally, Flyguy and I share our latest acquisitions and reviews since our last show. This and much more on Episode 106 of The Realm Recap.
Ahsoka Tano is BACK!!! In honor of her appearance on Star Wars Rebels, Dave Filoni designed this new t-shirt inspired by Ahsoka and her former master! This shirt is exclusively available at Her Universe!
They’ve finally done it… James Burns and Dan Curto have reached a milestone in recording and releasing their 50th show together.
Join them on the Star Wars Collectors Cast for a very special anniversary show with some gifts for their listeners in the form of the ultimate fan boy Kyle Newman, who discusses his latest film along with his current collecting habits and his opinion on Episode VII and beyond. Greg Crafts from Gentle Giant joins them to discuss San Diego Comic-Con and what Star Wars exclusives they’ll have available at the show. Ashley Eckstein drops in for a quick chat to talk about Her Universe at Star Wars Weekends, the R2-D2 ‘My Hero’ Jewelry Collection, San Diego Comic-Con and they ask if she’s missing Ahsoka. Finally, the Collectors Cast wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Rancho Obi-Wan to catch up with Steve Sansweet. All this, wrapped up and tied with a bow – their gift to you to celebrate their 50th show.
That’s right, with just 2 weeks until Celebration VI, we only have 10 tickets left for our not-to-be-missed Yakface/Star Wars Action News Fan Party! Your ticket will not only get you fed, but also our exclusive shirt illustrated by Mark McKenna plus a shot at a ton of prizes from Hasbro (TVC action figures & more), Sideshow (12″ figures), Mimoco (USB flash drives), Her Universe (clothing), Brian’s Toys (Force FX Lightsaber), K & C Collectibles ($100 in gift certificates) and much more!
One of the fastest growing demographics in the Science Fiction field today is the female audience. Realizing this incredibly important and increasing segment, Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano on the television series, Star Wars™ : The Clone Wars, has teamed up with The Araca Group, the co-producers & merchandising company behind the Broadway sensation, Wicked, to launch Her Universe™ – a line of merchandise designed exclusively for female fans. Beginning with a license for Star Wars, Her Universe focuses on authentic and high-quality licensed Sci Fi/Fantasy fashion apparel and merchandise.
Eckstein’s new endeavor, however, is not just about selling merchandise. She hopes to start a movement within the Sci Fi community to equally acknowledge the female fan base. Her first step will be coordinating and hosting a special panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, July 24th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm in Room 24ABC, entitled “Her Universe: Shining the Spotlight on Female Fans – the Past, Present and Future of Science Fiction Through Female Eyes.”
