He said he worked on other lines like Stretch Armstrong and Easy Bake Oven, but mostly worked on Star Wars. At the time he was there (78'-80') it was the main focus of the company. He had a few electronic sports games, but that was it. He even let me scour his basement storage while I was there (thats where I found the sports games) and what I got was everything he had. He was just out of collage (21/22) when he started at Kenner and I think the Star Wars line appealed to him and that's why he only kept that stuff.So I assume he only kept Star Wars items? Anything else from other lines? Ryan
I wish there was more. While at his home, he even let me search through all the boxes in the storage are of his basement and attic. He said that everything else had been given away to kids years ago (makes sense as that's how I got the first group of first shots from his nephew). Thanks for the kind words.Great stuff, I've enjoyed the read. Thanks for sharing! Was there anything you left behind or he didn't (want to) sell?
Already been done, welcome out of the cave.Amazing find and thank you for sharing the story. The pictures are wonderful. I would love to see a Kenner documentary made sometime in the near future, while these employees are still alive to tell their stories. I would hate for this great history to be lost. Their work has touched so many lives and many fans/collectors want see them get the recognition they deserve. There are so many more stories and finds out there that haven't been discovered yet. I hope to hear and see more in the future.
Thanks, I have it. It's not a Kenner documentary. It's just Star Wars Kenner Toys w/ collectors insights from 77-83 and barely any POTF. Great doc, just not an entire Kenner retrospective.
