Join life-time collectors and podcasters Matthew Fox from “This Week in Star Wars,” and Jake Stevens from From4-LOMtoZuckuss.com as they celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars by chronicling 40 different toy lines and collectibles from the past four decades. Selections will include the famous, the infamous, and the forgotten. Memorable not only for what they are, these collectibles also tell the story of how Star Wars changed over the years. A unique franchise which has been diversely perceived and marketed over the years: surprise phenomenon to kids’ property; dormant franchise to 90’s nostalgia revival; prequel oversaturation to pre-Disney aimlessness to the omnipresent cultural staple it is today. Whether you prefer Kenner or Hot Toys, Hasbro or Lego, Pez or Bend-Ems, the hosts cover it all with a 40-year look at the good, the bad and the ugly from the ever-expanding universe of Star Wars collectibles.
