Bernard Loomis, 82; Turned Ads for Toys Into TV Cartoons

Quote
Loomis had already moved on to General Mills, where he was president of Kenner Toys. He turned down the chance to license Steven Spielberg's new movie, "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," considering it not "toyetic," meaning that its characters would not make good toys.

But he spotted a small notice for a movie called "Star Wars" in a Hollywood trade magazine that sounded more likely: Its characters wore distinctive costumes.

In keeping with standard practice, the "Star Wars" toys were not supposed to appear until about a year after the movie opened. But the immediate success of the film prompted Loomis to reconsider.

Unable to speed up production, and with the all-important Christmas season nearing, Loomis ordered paper certificates sold in colorful boxes for the price of the toy. Kenner promised to deliver the toys by mail eight months later, and then a second wave of demand crested, as youngsters competed to get what their friends had.

Take some time to read the interview of Bernard Loomis from RS & know the history of the man who brought you the Star Wars toys.

Vintage Kenner / Stormtrooper Engineering Pilot
« on: October 6, 2005, 10:26 PM »
I received this Stormtrooper engineering pilot in the mail today.  8)



The bottom of the foot is numbered 12.

Now you are probably going to ask, what is an engineering pilot? Phhhhht! Like I know, I had to look this up on the net.  :-[

Have a looky at the links and it will explain it for you, very good reading on the steps of creating a figure.  8)

Figure Creation Process

First Shots or Engineering Pilots

What I like about this being number 12 is the Stormtrooper was released on a 12 back card. It will display nicely with my 12 back Takara Stormtrooper.  8)

A big Thanks to Incom4.

Feedback / boba-cop's feedback
« on: September 19, 2005, 12:29 AM »
Well it looks like I have the great pleasure of starting a feedback for boba-cop.   8)

Bob and I hooked up on Friday night, I bought and saved a bunch of SW items as he was unable to get out and find them over the past few months.

Bob's like a kid in a candy store seeing new SW stuff.  ;D

He took what he needed and paid, what more can you ask for.  8)

I'm looking forward to helping out this fellow Trooper in the future. 

Thanks Bob.
