Product Description

Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys

Plastic Galaxy. It begins a long time ago...

 

When Star Wars landed in the theaters, it introduced audiences to a galaxy filled with heroes and villains, robots and space ships, and a dizzying variety of alien life. But when the lights came up, they all disappeared... Unless you had all the toys. In which case, the adventure never had to end.         

 

Like no toys before them, Star Wars toys were a phenomenon that swept the nation, permanently transforming both the toy and movie industries, and ultimately creating a hobby that, 30 years later, still holds sway over its fans.      

 

Plastic Galaxy is a documentary that explores the groundbreaking and breathtaking world of Star Wars toys. Through interviews with former Kenner employees, experts and authors like Steve Sansweet and Gus Lopez, and of course collectors, it looks at the toys' history, their influence, and the fond and fervent feelings they elicit today.

         

Plastic Galaxy was produced and directed (and shot and edited!) by Brian Stillman, who, along with co-producer Karl Tate, spent more than three years working on the film. With help from a successful Kickstarter campaign, it was released this year on DVD, and is available on Amazon and select brick and mortar stores.

 

The region-free DVD includes the 70-minute feature, as well as more than 40 minutes of extras:  

 

* Tiny Toys, Giant Disaster: The Star Wars Micro Line

* Know Your Toy Lightsaber!

* The Art and Science of Kenner Prototypes

* Steve Sansweet: The Secret Origin of a Record-Setting Collector
