Jenmarie (@acrossthestars) has drawn our attention to a new assortment of Hallmark Itty Bitty characters slated for release in 2018. Look for Lando Calrissian, Queen Amidala, Darth Maul, plus a Limited Edition Lobot and more. The reveals also confirm the continuation of the Vintage Kenner inspired blister packs where we’ll see Han Solo, Chewbacca and an online exclusive Kenner R2-D2.

Frankie P. posted a couple shots via Facebook of the Columbia store window display in New York featuring the upcoming Echo Base Collection of coats. The vintage packaging display is just the icing on the cake for this cool line. Click on through for a closer look.
Gentle Giant has release their newsletter and have listed 3 new items today for preorder: the Darth Vader Emperor’s Wrath mini bust, the Jumbo Kenner Luke Skywalker (Imperial Stormtrooper Outfit), and the R2-D2 Life-Size Monument.

Ultimate deal finder Scott from Tulsa reports finding the 40th Anniversary Darth Vader with Display “Legacy Pack” on sale for $19.87 at his Walmart. And for those that require additional proof, here is a link to the receipt.
We managed to secure an extra GameStop Exclusive 6″ 40th Anniversary R5-D4 and we’re giving it away!* We want to know if there was one more figure to be released on the Vintage-style card back for the 6″ line, who would it be? Simply leave a comment here on this article (not our social media postings) with your answer.
We will leave the submissions open until 11:59pm ET on Friday, May 19. and announce the winner on Saturday, May 20.
*Giveaway is open to US residents only.
Update: in winter has been selected. Check the comments section to see if you’re the winner.
It was inevitable but HasbroToyShop has just removed the link and page for the Star Wars Celebration Exclusive 6″ Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot) figure, officially putting an end to its availability at the MSRP.
UPDATE: this is weird, despite the search for the term “Luke” or “40th anniversary” turning up zero results, the direct link for Luke is still there. I still wouldn’t expect any more quantities to become available.
Welcome back! After a nice break and a Star Wars Celebration to cover, Jayson and Flyguy are back to break down the latest in collecting news. On this episode we discuss the big reveals from Celebration as well as new items hitting stores (and our wallets). All this and more on episode #110 of The Realm Recap!
