Star Wars toys are a dominant force on the shelves of most department and toy stores. Hell, I’m still skulking around my local Walgreens looking for their exclusive white Boba Fett figure.
As we look forward towards all the new toys for Episode VII and Star Wars Rebels, now’s a great time to look back at where it all began, Kenner. Gravitas Ventures has just released their new documentary on the early days of Star Wars toys. You can watch the trailer below and then head over to Vimeo where you rent it for $4.99 or buy a digital download for $12.99.
Plastic Galaxy is a documentary that explores the groundbreaking and breathtaking world of Star Wars toys. Through interviews with former Kenner employees, experts, authors, and collectors, it looks at the toys’ history, their influence, and the fond and fervent feelings they elicit today.
