After taking a post-Star Wars Day break from the show last week, Flyguy and I are back to discuss the latest in Star Wars collecting. A mysterious Black Series set of astromechs turned up in Hong Kong and we speculate on its destination. Funko dropped their new Smuggler’s Bounty this week and we break down its contents and criticisms. Plus, Rogue One had a series of “spoilers” drop this week in terms of characters names, aliens and vehicles. All of this and more PLUS our latest acquisitions on Episode #97 of The Realm Recap.
A new series of ads created by Funko confirms one of the rumor POP! figures included in this month’s “Bounty Hunter” Smuggler’s Bounty subscription box. Click on through for the “spoiler”.
UPDATE: The second POP! figure has also been revealed via a Funko sponsored ad on Facebook.
Funko has updated their Smuggler’s Bounty site, revealing their next box theme – Jabba’s Palace. Orders are open now until July 15.
