Watched first episode about Star Wars toys.

Thought it was pretty good.

Worth a view.

I think everybody here was "made" by the games put out in the 80s

except jeff. he was created by prewar pinball. :)

some of us were molded by pinball, others were brainwashed to obey in the laboratory of fygar and pooka, and are controlled by otto.

I watched everything except the Barbie episode.

Thought it was pretty good.. not a whole lot of 'new' stuff I didn't know other than the guy who created GI Joe stupidly took a buyout versus a percentage of future profits.. that said I think he got $100k in 1964 which would have been a HUGE amount of money so not too bad for an idea. (The 1% of sales would of course, have been better though lol)
