When I was a kid…
– Star Wars was it. All of my friends were into collecting these awesome toys. Like it or not, it sent me on a path towards “creative endeavours”. So you could image my delight when this group of photos came to our attention via (and I’m not making this up) Darth Ray.
A mixture of product photography and a few candid black and white snapshots of the inner workings of the Kenner Toy Factory. And as every kid knows, Kenner made the toys for the Star Wars Franchise.
