Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys

2 Comments

Für die Wahnsinnigen da draußen, die mehr Geld für Spielzeug ausgeben, als für ihre eigenen Kinder, mag diese Doku so ziemlich der Höhepunkt des Kinojahres werden.

“Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys” is a documentary that celebrates the action figures, play sets, space ships, and props we grew up with as kids — and still collect today. Through interviews with collectors, historians, former Kenner and Hasbro employees, and others, the film explores their history, influence, and continued impact on pop culture.

Hier der Teaser zu dem Film, der leider erst im November kommt und nicht, wie angekündigt, im Sommer 2012.

    “…der leider erst im November kommt und nicht, wie angekündigt, im Sommer 2012.”
    Ja.
    Scheiße.
    Und wir armen Schweine sitzen da und können und heulend die Backen wegwarten.

    Memorabilia und Spielzeug zu Filmen und TV sind ja ein interessantes Thema.
    Und ja, Herr Lucas hat das Spielzeugmarketing damals perfektioniert und auf die Spitze getrieben – aber warum muss eine teuer produzierte Doku zum Thema ausschließlich auf Star Wars fokussiert sein?

    Am Ende des Tages gibt es viel (!!!) spannendere Geschichten aus anderen Lizenzen als SW, mit teils amüsanten und teils unglaublichen Geschichten. So spült es nur noch mehr Kohle in George Lucas’ Taschen…

    Mal schauen – wenn ich über die DVD stolpere und die keine Unsummen kostet…

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
