Sideshow is now taking preorders for their exclusive 1:6 Scale 4-LOM figure. This item is limited to 2000 pieces.
Since our last show, rumors have “gone Rogue” regarding the first waves of 6″ Black Series set to launch on Force Friday 2.0. Reports of 6″ Ahsoka figure sightings are becoming more prevalent as well as the appearance of the Kmart Exclusive Rey figure. New lists of Funko POP! figures have leaked as well with huge support for Rogue One characters. All of this plus Sideshow, Disney Elite, LEGO, Tsum Tsum news & reveals and much more including our latest acquisitions on Episode #94 of The Realm Recap.
Sideshow has updated today with a preview of their 4-LOM Sixth Scale figure. Look for preorders to launch on next Thursday.
On this episode of The Realm Recap, Flyguy and I reunite from across the globe to discuss the latest in Star Wars news. A lot has transpired since the last time we broadcast: The Force Awakens has been released in the US (in various incarnations), a glorious teaser for Rogue One debuted and a sail barge-sized load of collecting news has dropped from Hasbro, Sideshow, Bandai and Funko! All of this and much more on Episode #93 of The Realm Recap.

Equipped and outfitted to withstand harsher desert-like environments, the Sandtroopers™ were the perfect squadron of troopers to deploy on Tatooine in Star Wars™: A New Hope. Sideshow’s Sandtrooper™ Premium Format™ Figure will be available for Pre-Order on Thursday, March 24, 2016!
Sideshow has updated today revealing their 1:6 scale R5-J2 Imperial Astromech figure. As we posted on Facebook yesterday, it is interesting that the dome for this figure is technically wrong if they are using this droid as the basis for the sculpt (note the eye stalks).
Preorders rollout Feb. 25.
UPDATE: Preorders are now open
