The Nacelle Company announced today that they are releasing a collector’s edition Blu-ray of their popular Netflix docu-series, The Toys That Made Us. Naturally, the collector’s edition will come with a series collectible, designed by NECA.
The Toys That Made Us is a nostalgic look at some of the world’s most iconic toy franchises. It a deep dive into the minds behind these toys and looks at their rise (and, occasionally, fall). The series consists of eight episodes over two seasons and looks at the history of such franchises as Star Wars, Barbie, G.I. Joe, and Hello Kitty, among others. Described as “a show that will make you rethink your childhood” (The Guardian) and a “delightful dip into nostalgia” (Collider), both seasons will be included on the collector’s edition Blu-ray.
“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 1 & 2 and with the help of our friends at NECA, we’ve produced the world’s first Toys That Made Us collectible,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of The Nacelle Company.
Sounds like a no-brainer to me!
The collector’s edition Blu-ray will be available October 1 anywhere you buy physical media and will consist of all eight episodes of seasons 1 and 2, over 15 new bonus features, and of course, the exclusive collectible from NECA.
Season 3 (which sort of makes that whole “8-part documentary series from its theme song irrelevant) will cover Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers, professional wrestling, and My Little Pony. It premieres November 15 on Netflix – so you’ll have plenty of time to check out the Blu-ray before sitting down to reminisce about a new quartet of toys!
(Psst: Do Care Bears!)
