Great program, I really enjoyed the episodes they released so far.  I was actually surprised at how much I learned (I thought I was familiar with the famous behind-the-scenes stories regarding the Kenner line, but I was wrong).

It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

No.  Although it might have been a challenge to segue from talking about the original rocket firing Boba Fett into talking about a collecting club...

That's the mark of a true craftsman.

Have Netflix?  Then you really need to check out their new series about toys, called The Toys That Made Us.  The first episode in the series covers a topic near and dear to us all:  STAR WARS! 

The inaugural episode in the series chronicles how the toy license for Star Wars was initially shopped, and how a relatively small company like Kenner was able to negotiate the rights to produce Star Wars toys.  It features interviews with many former Kenner execs, some Kenner employees that went on to work for Hasbro, as well as some high profile collectors like Steve Sansweet and Gus Lopez.  Oh, and an NJSWCCer from the past makes an appearance:  Randy, aka Red5, offered some commentary as well!
