I'm currently in production on a documentary called Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys. It is, as the title suggests, a movie about... Star Wars toys!
The film will explore the history and pop cultural impact of the action figures, play sets, space ships, and props that we all know and love -- all through conversations with fellow collectors, former Kenner and Hasbro employees, toy experts, and more. And, of course, there'll be a lot of cool toys!
The film will be released on DVD in August, 2012, at Celebration VI -- it'll also be available for purchase through many brick-and-mortar stores and through an online shop. Besides the film itself, I plan on including all sorts of extras... but for now, I'm keeping them secret!
Check out the teaser trailer!
For more information and updates, you can check out Plastic Galaxy's official web site, www.plasticgalaxymovie.com. You can also follow us on Twitter (@Plastic_Galaxy) and friend us on Facebook. If we can get this telepathy thing to work, you can follow us with you mind, too.
And for those who like to keep things within the blogger community, we've got another blog set up that you can follow: plasticgalaxymovie.blogspot.com. We'll try to update it every time we update the main news feed on the official site, but just in case, you might want to check both every once in a while.
So that's it -- that's why both this site and Galactic Awesome have kind of dried up of late. I've been extremely busy with the film -- and I anticipate many more months of work ahead of me. But it'll be worth it... I hope!
