realmrecap_news

One. Hundred. Episodes. On this milestone episode of The Realm Recap, Flyguy and I bring you the latest in Star Wars collecting news from Hasbro, Hot Toys, Funko, and more. We’re still waiting with anticipation for Hasbro to finally, officially, reveal their exclusive(s) for SDCC, but in the meantime, they are teasing something special for July 6. Do you know what it is? (Leave a comment if you have a guess). We also discuss the expanding line of Funko POP!s that have started hitting online and in store over the past week. Hot Toys made new (and spendy) news this week with that announcement of new sixth scale figures from The Force Awakens. Are they the best figures yet? Listen to find out our opinion. And finally we run down the latest news breaking with several official announcements regarding Rogue One characters and image revealed via Entertainment Weekly. All of this and much, much more on Episode 100 of The Realm Recap!

Episode #99: Summertime Sadness

realmrecap_news

Despite the majority of retail outlets being devoid of new products on shelves, there are still a few surprises as online retailers are receiving a “new” 6″ version of Rey – which may be just different enough to make you mad/sad. Funko continue to promote like no other brand as teases for the next Smuggler’s Bounty box have sparked some discussion of potential for new characters. The biggest (and most spendy) news of last week was the announcement of an ultra-high end tier of prop replicas from Propshop – the manufacturer responsible for the very same screen used props in The Force Awakens. And finally, we close out Episode #99 with a few new acquisitions to tide us over until the next “must-have” item comes along.
