has an interesting feature up on Bernard Loomis and his involvement with Kenner and the Star Wars vintage line. Its a fun read, at least for me, and really makes you nostalgic for the times of "less then $2 action figures" and "affordable vehicles and beasts". This as I contemplate the upcoming $90 AT-AT Walker at TRU
. It is amazing how his ideas (and his team) really revolutionized the toy industry. Its true, we do sort of take the 3 3/4" scale for granted at times, but it really opened a lot of doors for kids and collectors as far as toys go.
