Fun fact about Star Wars toys you probably didn’t know! The first four official figures were Luke, Leia, Chewie, and R2. Darth Vader wasn’t in the original set!
It’s hard to find a new angle on Star Wars, but I think the documentary Plastic Galaxymight have done have it. It’s the story of the action figures which, separately from the movies, had their own impact that forever changed both toys and film.
How did the masterminds at Kenner do it? This week on The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show, Plastic Galaxy director Brian Stillman stops by to answer that very question. We also argue about Avatar. Listen on iTunes or JeffRubinJeffRubinShow.com.
