LOS ANGELES, CA – The Nacelle Company announced they are releasing a collector’s edition of their acclaimed Netflix docu-series, The Toys That Made Us, that includes over 15 new bonus features and a Toys That Made Us collectible designed by NECA. The Blu-ray will be released on October 1, 2019 and will be available anywhere you buy physical media.
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.
The Guardian.com called The Toys That Made Us “A show that will make you rethink your childhood,”
Collider.com said The Toys That Made Us season 2 was “Another delightful dip into nostalgia,”
“The first two seasons of Netflix’s The Toys That Made Us gave us a fascinating look at how everything from Lego to Transformers came to be,” said Gizmodo.
“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.
Founded by Brian Volk Weiss, The Nacelle Company develops, produces, and distributes feature and documentary films as well as TV shows – both scripted and unscripted. Nacelle’s vast array of partnerships include: Netflix, Amazon, Disney +, HBO, Discovery, A&E Networks, Hulu, Viacom, and many more. The Nacelle Company has produced the hit Netflix docu-series, The Toys That Made Us, and it’s upcoming spin-off, The Movies That Made Us, CW’s Discontinued and Netflix’s Kevin Hart’s Guide To Black History and is currently producing the Mad About You reboot with Sony Pictures Television.
