The excellent Netflix series The Toys That Made Us will be available as a collector’s edition Blu-ray on October 1st, featuring seasons 1 and 2 of the series.
The Nacelle Company today announced they are releasing a collector’s edition of their acclaimed Netflix docu-series, The Toys That Made Us. The box set, which spans the first two seasons of the show, includes over 15 new bonus features and a Toys That Made Us collectible designed by NECA, according to a press release from Nacelle. The Blu-ray will be released on October 1, 2019 and will be available anywhere you buy physical media. Series creator Brian Volk-Weiss announced the Season 3 premiere las week, revealing that new episodes will drop on November 15, 2019 on the streaming service.
Netflix’s The Toys That Made Us offers a deep nostalgic dive into the minds behind history’s most iconic toy franchises, as they discuss the rise (and sometimes fall) of their billion-dollar creations. The 8-episode documentary series, as it was originally touted, focuses on the history of important toy lines such as 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,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of The Nacelle Company, in a statement.
Exactly what the collectible is, was not revealed in the statement.
While the season size of four episodes will remain the same for Season 3, there will be some significant changes to the show’s overall format. Volk-Weiss recently told Den of Geek that the series is no longer doing reenactments in Season 3, largely due to a lack of overall fan interest in them.
