Predominantly among the Elite Triple-Platinum Certified TruFans, though.

It was a quarterly role playing game supplement. This was issue #7.

Sometimes, for fun but when working I try to stick to the original sources. Thankfully, I have a pretty complete library.

I remember my friend Gene bringing in G.I.Joe toys in late 1983, and we were all so done with Star Wars toys. They couldn't even bend their legs!

Many companies got soaked by Episode I, partially by overbetting on it, but also because kids flocked to Pokemon that year. A lot of recalibration required for Episode II. But Episode I overestimates took out Kenner and nearly sunk DK books.

Doing some writing and while referencing old source material found a Winnipeg transit bus transfer from the 90s acting as a bookmark.

When Lucasfilm was an independent company, it tended to put more weight on consumer products given how little it produced for film and TV in comparison.

Yeah, add to that the whole company's many parts. Whatever happens in the studio entertainment space, it's still just a fraction of what TV makes. In 2018, media networks made the most, followed by theme parks, then movies, then consumer products.

But, it does make a difference when it's not one person's money, I suppose. It's hard to say. He'd save on physical production and then invest heavily in post and animation stuff to keep his companies innovating. It was an interesting dynamic, but I don't know about sustainable.

Oh man, no. Budgets are still a constant reality.

I don't know. When it was a private company nobody knew, since that kind of info was kept secret. I suspect part of the reason it was sold is that Lucas didn't want to make the kind of movies required to keep it open.

I doubt Young Indy made money. Willow, Tucker, Radioland Murders certainly didn't.

Looking back at it now, I do think the company needed the money too. It had such a long stretch without any sort of box office success.

Nearly every licensee who picked up Star Wars from 1986 to 1993 or so has the same story of having to convince their upper management that it wasn't a dead property.

It'd be rare for more than one model to be shot at a time, as the ships are all moving independent of each other, and all movement is imparted by the camera, not the model. Each model is shot separately in multiple passes, and the film loaded into an optical printer for combining

The world’s burning and the one percent are selling the fuel to pour on the fire to pay for the bubble they’ll build atop our bones to live in, but sure, let’s talk about the weekend box office.
