      Brian - as of today Feb. 24th, I have still not received my signed copy of the DVD or three t-shirts.

    2. Creator Philippe Chanelet Dardenne on February 5, 2014

      Hi, my DVD is unreadable; can you send me another one?
      Any interest in making the Japanese and French release of this DVD?
      Let me know about both.
      Kudos and thanks

      Received my DVD copy as well and it is WONDERFUL!!! You did a great job, Brian! A real viewing pleasure. Thanks so much.

      I received my copy of the DVD today, watched it and enjoyed it very much. You all did a great job on it.

      Ummm, am I the only one who sat there thinking that the overhead shot of the Kenner complex was the surface of the Death Star until the text overlay came up? LOL

    5. Creator Sbznpoe on January 16, 2014

      Thanks Brian :) Looking forward to it.

    6. Creator Brian Stillman on January 16, 2014

      I started processing all the videos --everyone should start receiving their signed copies next week. -Brian-

    8. Creator AstroBBoy on October 9, 2013

      Can we have an update on the time frame please.

    9. Creator Todd Humphreys on September 13, 2013

      Yes, I saw the sneak peak and loved it. Really looking forward to getting the DVD and watching the rest. Thanks for the update!

      Hi, Todd. I'm glad you're so enthusiastic about the film! We're currently in the final stages of the edit and we're still looking at the September finish line, as we wrote in the last update we sent out. I know it's frustrating when the deadline gets pushed back, but as much so as it is for you, it's even worse for us. We can't wait to get the film into the hands of fans and collectors.

      Have you caught the 13-minute Sneak Peak video we released over the summer? It should give you a taste of what you can expect from the final documentary. You can find it here:

      Once again, we appreciate your vigorous interest and support, and look forward to getting the documentary into everyone's hands as soon as it's finished.

      All the best,

      -Brian-

    11. Creator Todd Humphreys on August 28, 2013

      so, when are we getting the DVD's???

    12. Creator Jeff Snell on May 4, 2013

      Excited about the update. My question for the con is. What is you fav figure of all time?

    13. Creator Brian Stillman on December 20, 2012

      Hi, Todd. I'm not sure if you saw the last update I sent out. Thanks to a number of interviews that landed in our laps, we've pushed the release date back to early next year. We decided that it made more sense to create the best film possible, as opposed to sticking to somewhat arbitrary deadlines. While it would have been fun to release Plastic Galaxy this year, we just couldn't pass up the opportunity to add two more Kenner employees to the film.

      We're absolutely moving forward, and I think the end result will be well worth the extra few month's wait.

      All the best,

      -Brian-

      I thought the DVD was to ship in November. Has anyone got an update?

    15. Creator Justin LaSalata (deleted) on May 14, 2012

      So excited and glad to be a part of such an awesome project. Congrats on the 211 backers and for tripling your desired funding goal!

    16. Creator Simon Ladley on April 20, 2012

      More power to your elbow! Long overdue that someone made a documentary about the greatest, most important part of Star Wars ... THE TOYS!!!!!!! I've been hooked ever since my late Father bought me Luke and Han on Palitoy cards back in 78, ah the memories *sigh*

    17. Creator Lisa Stevens on April 14, 2012

      Hey y'all. My name is Lisa Stevens and my partner Vic Wertz and I have a rather large Star Wars collection that is one of the ones featured in this documentary. Of course, I needed to get a copy along with the three t-shirts, being a completist and all. Curse you Steve Sansweet for infecting me! :) Glad to see this finally making its way out Brian. Don't make us look stupid in the interviews. :)

    18. Creator Emmanuel Dominguez on April 14, 2012

      Good luck Brian! I'm really excited for this project.

    19. Creator Brian Stillman on April 14, 2012

      Thanks for the kind words, Thomas! Not sure I'll make it to Maryland this time out, but one day for sure!

    20. Creator Thomas Boone on April 14, 2012

      I met Brian at the JediCon in West Virginia last October. He's a great guy, very passionate about his film and Star Wars toys. It was a lot of fun talking to him and I can't wait to see this movie! Now come on down to the ANS Sci-Fi & Comic Con in La Plata, Maryland, Brian! You can plug Plastic Galaxy there, too!

    21. Creator Scott Hume on April 13, 2012

      Just made my pledge. Good luck!!

    22. Creator Justin LaSalata (deleted) on April 13, 2012

      Just made my $60 pledge! May the Force be with you in reaching your goal! Thanks!

    23. Creator Brian Stillman on April 13, 2012

      T-shirt sizes can be left in the comments box. ALSO, I'll be sending out an announcement when the time comes to confirm shirt sizes. Don't worry -- no one will be left squeezing into a tiny shirt, or swimming in a huge one!

    24. Creator Nick DiPaolo on April 13, 2012

      I didn't see where to put which shirt or the size? did i miss something?
