Check out this awesome how-to-video from Cosplay Chris where he takes a basic 3.75″ First Order TIE Fighter and create his own crash scene diorama. It’s pretty amazing.
TTPM has posted an exclusive tour on YouTube of Hasbro’s presentation area at New York Toyfair. Skip to the 9:00 mark to check out what’s on display for Star Wars.
Yakface and Flyguy are back after the holidays and the release of Rogue One to ring in the new year with the latest in Star Wars collecting and news – including the 40th Anniversary of A New Hope. New, unannounced items have been hitting retail as well as huge clearances. This and much more on Episode 108 of The Realm Recap.
Death Troopers! Saw Gerrera! Maul! Obi-Wan! All this and more in the new mid-season trailer for Star Wars Rebels.
PROS: Excellent sculpting and deco, and the lights are a perfectly festive touch. LED lights are bright and the button batteries are included (preinstalled). 3 lighting modes give the collector options, although I suspect most will choose the solid (non-flashing) setting.
CONS: Must be a PG Member to purchase ($120) which will probably drive the after market price higher in the future. Fragile antennae could easily break if not handled properly.
Yet another TV spot has been released. “Strap In” features additional footage not yet seen plus a tag line of “this film contains scenes that may be too intense for younger viewers”.
Watch out for those TIEs!
Here’s another international trailer featuring even more footage from Rogue One!

Another midnight product launch has come and gone, but the news is not over as we are back this week to discuss the latest developments in Star Wars collecting. Rogue Friday proved to be a more subdued, but more satisfying experience for many this year as stores seemed to have a good amount of merchandise to satiate needy collectors. Flyguy and I discuss our experiences as well as several announcements that came in the hours before and after Sept. 30. Enjoy the super-sized, and wallet draining Episode 105 of The Realm Recap.
