The Sandcrawler #31-Brian Stillman of Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys
We continue our celebrity Star Wars collector shows this week with Brian Stillman, the writer and director of Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys!
Brian joins us to discuss the motivation behind his 2014 documentary on the history of the Kenner Star Wars action figure line. It's an amazing film and has been a big influence on Dan and Mike and their fairly recent focus on vintage Star Wars toys.
We discuss what went into Kenner deciding what the original twelve Star Wars figures should be and take a look at a wish list of characters that may have been considered. What was the reason that the main villain of Star Wars, Grand Moff Tarkin wasn’t made into a figure? Listen and find out!
Brian shares some great tips on being a focused collector and the importance of collecting something that excites you.
Check out the Plastic Galaxy website and be sure to order a copy of this in-depth look at the toy line that started it all: Kenner Star Wars figures.
