Topics covered this week include Hasbro’s showing at Toy Fair, Hot Toys’ impressive Obi-Wan Kenobi and Funko’s deluge of Hikari figures reveals. We also touch on the official reveal of the UCS TIE Fighter and expanded encyclopedia from LEGO, new customized projects and announcements from Marvel. We wrap things up with our latest review and toy acquisitions – all this and more on Episode 52 of The Realm Recap!
