On this latest episode, Flyguy and I discuss the reveals and announcements from companies such as Funko, Hot Toys, Sideshow and more as we celebrate May the Fourth: Star Wars Day. The big news didn’t stop with products though as we already have a new date to mark in our calendars as Lucasfilm and ReedPOP announce Celebration Orlando for April 2017. All of this and more PLUS our latest acquisitions on Episode #96 of The Realm Recap.
For Star Wars collectors, 2015 started in a famine and ended in a feast — with plenty of highs and lows along the way! We look back at the Star Wars Celebration: Anaheim reveals, the convention exclusives, and all the action figures, mini-busts, import figures, and high-end collectibles. Plus the bottled water, the oranges, the cereals, and all the other tie-ins!
So listen now as Arnie and Marjorie are joined by other Star Wars Action News team members and friends and look back on the year that was…and the next year to come!
PROS: Anything that results in more tributes to the iconic Ralph McQuarrie is okay by me, but it does come at at price. The overall sculpt and paint are good with crisp details especially on the jacket and (non-removable) cap. For fans of Ralph McQuarrie and the Original Trilogy, this should be a welcome addition to your mini bust display.
CONS: The prices for Gentle Giant bust have steadily crept up over the last few years and this one falls victim to that trend as well. It is an exclusive, and it is McQuarrie, but $120.00 is pretty steep for this non-deluxe bust.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this bust is worth adding to your collection.
