Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys 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.
The film, which will be released on DVD, also includes tours of some of the top collections -- comprising prototypes, bootlegs, foreign toys, and all manner of surprises. DVD extras, including micro-documentaries and extended interviews, make Plastic Galaxy a prize for not only newer fans, but also long-time collectors.
Plastic Galaxy will be released on DVD in August 2012 at Celebration VI, as well as online and through select stores. It's being produced by X-Ray Films, the same out fit that produced Toys Are Us: A Revolution in Plastic.
