The Toys That Made Us Coming to Blu-Ray

The Nacelle Company as we speak introduced they’re releasing a collector’s version of their acclaimed Netflix docu-series, . The field set, which spans the primary two seasons of the present, consists of over 15 new bonus options and a Toys That Made Us collectible designed by NECA, in accordance to a press launch from Nacelle. The Blu-ray shall be launched on October 1, 2019 and shall be obtainable wherever you purchase bodily media. Series creator Brian Volk-Weiss introduced the Season Three premiere las week, revealing that new episodes will drop on November 15, 2019 on the streaming service.

Netflix’s The Toys That Made Us presents a deep nostalgic dive into the minds behind historical past’s most iconic toy franchises, as they focus on the rise (and typically fall) of their billion-dollar creations. The 8-episode documentary sequence, because it was initially touted, focuses on the historical past of necessary toy traces corresponding to Star Wars, Masters of the Universe, Barbie and G.I. Joe, Star Trek, Transformers, Lego, and Hello Kitty.

“Since the show is targeted towards lovers of pop-culture and nostalgia, it seemed like a no-brainer to offer a collector’s Blu-ray of seasons one and two, and with the help of our friends at NECA, we’ve produced the world’s first Toys That Made Us collectible,” stated Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of The Nacelle Company, in a press release.

Exactly what the collectible is, was not revealed within the assertion.

While the season dimension of 4 episodes will stay the identical for Season 3, there shall be some important adjustments to the present’s total format. Volk-Weiss not too long ago informed Den of Geek that the sequence is now not doing reenactments in Season 3, largely due to a scarcity of total fan curiosity in them.

“There’s a huge format change,” Volk-Weiss stated. “We stopped doing the reenactments. The main reason was that no one seemed to care about them. For every 1,000 DMs or Facebook messages we would get, two would be about the reenactments. So we were putting a significant amount of our budget into the reenactments, which nobody cared about. Again, I’ve been doing a lot of personal appearances now, meeting with fans and talking to people. And I asked, I started doing my own internal poll. I said to people like, ‘What do you love about the show?’ Nobody said the reenactments.”

He went on to say that the present was spending a good portion of their funds on these reenactments in addition to elaborate on how the reenactments had been impacting the present’s runtime.

“By the way, of the reenactments, if people talked about it at all, the only one people talked about was Star Wars. So, I was like, ‘Why are we spending a significant percentage of our budget on something nobody cares about?'” Volk-Weiss stated.


“The other issue, and this was more important than budget, is that Netflix really wants us to be under 50 minutes. Every now and then we go over 50. So, let’s just say it’s 50 minutes, we’re putting 10 percent of our time into a reenactment. Star Trek is 43 minutes, that reenactment is like four minutes. So, the main reason I did what I did was to have more time to tell the story. The budget was probably 30 percent of the reason, 70 percent of it was to have more time.”

The first two seasons of The Toys That Made Us are actually obtainable to stream on Netflix. Season Three debuts November 15, 2019.
