"Plastic Galaxy" Soon Available for Streaming

Ron writes:

Have you seen Plastic Galaxy, the one and only documentary devoted to vintage Star Wars toys? If not, what are you waiting for?

Directed by Brian Stillman, it's a concise, entertaining, and informative survey of the vintage hobby, and it includes several interviews with people who actually worked at Kenner. If that's not enough to persuade you, it features a bunch of folks associated with the SWCA. Trust me on this: We're all incredibly photogenic and charismatic.

The movie came out on DVD several months ago, and it can be purchased here.

But if you're not into physical media -- if you're so high-tech that you only watch things if you can play them on your iPhone while sitting on the toilet -- you'll be happy to know that you'll soon be able to stream the movie on Vimeo. Now, the streaming version doesn't include the DVD bonus features, which means, among other things, that in watching it you'll be missing out on whole a lot of Chris Georgoulias. But then every convenience has a down side...

The pre-order page is here. It's available this Friday, October 3.

Brian will also be screening part of the movie at the upcoming New York Comic Con. No word yet on date or time, but I'm sure he'll post the info on his official site.
