Show Notes
George Lucas' 1977 space fantasy Star Wars changed the way American audiences consumed films.  More, though, it also changed the landscape for movie merchandising, with more money being made on toys, games, and collectibles than on the movies themselves.  Now the documentary Plastic Galaxy looks back at the first generation of Star Wars toys, released between 1977 and 1985 from Kenner.  Does this film capture the childhood magic of Star Wars figures, and can the documentary appeal to anyone not already obsessed with little plastic Stormtroopers?  Find out in this special Now Playing/Star Wars Action News crossover podcast hosted by Marjorie, Arnie, and Jerry!
