Each episode will last between 40 and 50 minutes, and focus on one of the eight franchises chosen by the show creators to illustrate the 1980s toys and their legacy to this day, from a predominantly US perspective.

The official Facebook page has uploaded a couple of shots to illustrate the series, in terms of items shown-off during the episodes and general promotion, and their official page over on Netflix has uploaded a trailer for the first half too, featuring Barbie, Masters of the Universe, GI Joe, and Star Wars. The other four, Lego, Hello Kitty, Star Trek and Transformers, will be released at a later date. Stay tuned to find out more - as we're obviously excited to have Seibertron himself feature in one of the episodes* in person!

boo! j/k....Well I am a little disappointed, but I've noticed Netflix doing this a little more lately with other shows. They enable people to "binge", and then are slowly taking that away from them. Well while I personally collected MOTU, I am excited for that one. I never collected SW or GI Joe toys, but am heavy into the lore...I guess they wanted to save the best for last ;)^

Just an educated guess which could be totally wrong, but I'll throw in my prediction for February to have the second round of 4 episodes available.

Have watched the first four episodes, yes, even the Barbie one, and have thoroughly enjoyed them.

Thanks to this show, I've now convinced my partner to let me get a Skeletor as I've never had one. Who knows what I'll be able to get once the Transformers episode airs. :-P

Via the official Facebook page for The Toys That Made Us, the eight part documentary on the leading brands and franchises in the 1980s (mostly in the US, but somewhat globally too), we now have confirmation that the first four episodes have been released for streaming on Netflix!

As a reminder, the first half of the series focuses on Star Wars, Barbie, GI Joe and Masters of the Universe - Transformers will be part of the latter four episodes, to be released soon. Can't wait still? Take a look at both the trailer for the series, and some quick answers from show creator Brian Volk-Weiss about the rationale behind the interviews and features (focusing on the example of Optimus Prime), including the ones that led Seibertron himself into the show! Are you watching? Have you watched it? Let us know in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

Watched the first two episodes last night. We enjoyed the format and got our learn on. I was hoping for more in depth looks at various collections though. Still a very enjoyable fun documentary series and I can't wait for a peek at certain site owners collection!

Just watched the first one, Star Wars, and really liked it. I can tell this whole seres is gonna rum ta tum tum on my nostalgia drum. I played with all these toys in my youth. AND BEYOND. Even ol Barb when in a pinch.

Loved the Professor of The Sociology of Star Wars' spiel on the human need to touch or hold something physical that represents something intangible. He compared it to physical religious objects bringing people closer to their beliefs. Brought me comfort in a time I'm doubting my collecting habits.

Excited to watch more. Especially Transformers.

Same, but when you stop and think about it, that's not what the series is about, it's the history of the toy lines. Seeing a collection (like Rancho Obi-Wan) is an added bonus.

Like that weird naked chick on the seat behind the former Mattel boss. :-P

Yeah, no shit. We've been scratching our head trying to figure out just what the hell is that?

No but you're right, a history lesson was better than just a walk through someone's collection. It wasn't just a history lesson, but a how these things came to be and what it took to make them a reality.

I just literally finished episode 4. Good times. He-Man was great but all the GI Joe feels. I forgot just how deep I was in Joe.

Been a fun ride and I'm totally stoked for the rest... hurry up Netflix!

I don't know how big Joe was in Australia back then, I know I don't recall seeing them.

He-Man? Yeah, we had plenty of He-Man!

I think the best parts were how the designers came up with some of the figures, with a number of them being done through kitbashing!

Action Man (the greatest hero of them all), yes, but he was more a 90's thing.

I really can't recall seeing them in store around here. Star Wars, He-Man, Transformers definitely. My first real exposure to G.I. Joe was the Action Force comics that were backups to the Transformers UK comics.

Yeah I would assume art, but I also think it is supposed to be or look like the VP. I mean it's eye catching and someone wanted it in the background.

GI Joe was the best for me.

I really enjoyed the story about how Battle Cat came to be as well during the MotU episode. "F-- it, put a saddle on it." :lol:

Although what I feel like I learned about MotU is that some clueless dudes at Mattel, each of them a varying degree of terrible in some way, bs'd their way into the whole thing on accident. Fun to listen to the stories but none of those guys came across as someone I'd want to be friends with - although I do realize the producers could have made that happen on purpose through the magic of editing so don't take me too seriously/don't assume I'm just hatin' on MotU :)

The MOTU episode really hit my feels. Around new years I'm headed back to Mom's house, and helping her start the arduous process of trimming down the stuff in her house in an effort to move her closer to me and my fam. On the To-Do list is, head to the attic and go through the toys that are up there. I'm really looking forward to reclaiming my MOTU collection now!

There's a shirt-ton of Joes up there too, but.... man, I have a tale of Joe toys that is just TLDR. #-o

I found watching these with my kids was a little awkward at times though. The Mattel guys for MOTU cursed up a storm. Also my 12 year old daughter wanted to watch the Barbie one, so we got a few minuets in, and...well...lets just say I had to do a lot of parental explaining...jeez I never knew Barbie's history was so ....*unwholesome* anyway...

Of course I've never been interested in girl toys, for obvious reasons, but I do recall the "Barbie and the Rockers" release in the late 80's and felt it was a complete rip-off taking advantage of Jem (the opposite of how it was portrayed in the documentary...) I guess perception really Is reality for some people heh...

I cant wait for the Transformers and the remainder of the episodes to be released.

For those of you keeping tabs, or just wondering about the new Netflix series The Toys That Made Us - focusing on eight toy brands that made a big impact in the 80s and their legacy - we have a small update from the official series' Facebook page.

The Transformers episode, which along with with Star Trek, LEGO, Hello Kitty will form the second half of season one, is currently in post-production - and will feature not only our very own Seibertron / Ryan Yzquierdo, but also movie director Michael Bay, and a whole roster of Transformers-related people, such as Cullen, Budiansky, and more! Additionally, we have an interview with show creator Brian Volk-Weiss explaining more in detail his intention with the show, and how he chose what he did for the series, courtesy of Fatherly. Stay with Seibertron.com to find out more about the actual release date of the next four episodes, and read an extract of the interview below!

You focus on the history of a different toy for each of the eight episodes. What did the process look like for picking which toys to focus on?

In picking the toys, we sort of created four categories that we would pay attention to when we were asking whether or not a toy belonged.

Category one: Are the toys still being made today? We didn’t want to look at a toy that was great for three years or even ten years and then went away. We wanted to be covering toys that were relevant 30, or, in some cases, even 50 years ago and are still relevant today.

Category two: If there was a Mount Rushmore of toys, would this toy be selected? Could Optimus Prime be up there? Yeah, so that makes the cut. It means there needs to be a personality or a face.

Category three: Does the toy have a fanatical following? I wanted to find out the history of toys that had conventions where people were dressing up.

Category four: Is there a good story to tell? If there was a toy that became a hit and that was that, we didn’t want to cover it.

Why do you think toys can play such a strong role in shaping us even as adults?

Everyone has an imagination and toys allow you to utilize your imagination more than watching TV or reading books ever could. When I was a kid, there were no toy versions of the ships in Star Trek so I would make my own out of LEGOs. And eventually, I started designing my own Star Trek ships with LEGOs. When I started drawing Star Trek ships in eighth grade, I’m drawing the ones I designed as well as the ships from the show. I wouldn’t have done that without LEGO. Toys allow us to manifest our imagination in a physical way.

This series is actually very good. Highly recommended if you were born in the 80s or are curious about how these companies were run back in the day. Looking forward to the next round of episodes. The G.I. Joe and He-man episodes are my favorites so far, but even the Barbie episode was pretty fascinating.

Very excited for the next batch of episodes. They were not what I expected, but exceeded those expectations. Nice little documentary/history lesson. Mostly I just like looking at toys :POPCORN:

I watched the first batch of episodes over Christmas and thought they were fantastic. Especially since 3/4 of them were toys I cared nothing about... and they still held my interest. I'd recommend this series to anyone who has a general interest in toy collecting.

Highlight so far: the origin of Battlecat :lol:

I can't wait for the TF episode. At least give us a release date!? :KREMZEEK:

1. A release date for the second wave of four episodes would be nice so we have something to anticipate. Perhaps in February around Toy Fare? Merely speculation, but it would be neat.

2.A Second season would be nice. But if they stick with the formula of toys that have a long-lasting legacy, I fear things like Voltron and Robotech wouldn't quite fit. (Although I myself am a huge fan of the series, the toys were relatively short lived). Although they could probably be lumped together with perhaps Shogun Warriors and a few other minor toy lines for a combined "It came from Japan" type episode, That would be cool. ;)

In a similar vein, I'd love to see episodes about MASK, Thundercats etc... but the toy lines themselves really didn't last long enough to make a show of this scale. Future episodes I could see:

MEGO, Hotwheels, TMNT, Care Bears, My Little Pony, Garfield, additionally maybe 2 episodes dedicated to all the Marvel and DC comics toy lines over the years.
Re: Trailer and More Details for Netflix Documentary The Toys That Made Us (1929531)
Posted by Burn on January 3rd, 2018 @ 3:35pm CST
Operative term there being "long-lasting legacy".

The likes of Voltron and Robotech most certainly have legacies, Voltron has a new series (on Netflix no less) and new toys. Robotech/Macross is still getting churned out in Japan. Both also have comics, along with other brands you listed.

I guess it depends on how they really define what they deem worthy to cover.
Re: Trailer and More Details for Netflix Documentary The Toys That Made Us (1929534)
Posted by no-one on January 3rd, 2018 @ 3:42pm CST
I'd imagine if they get a second or even third season, they'd have to loosen up standards or they'd force themselves off the air. Besides, we're just beginning to tickle rampant speculation at this point.

So far I'd say we have a pretty good wish list going though.

M.A.S.K. btw...

:APPLAUSE:

I'd bet quite a few people here wouldn't mind a Diaclone episode. I'm sure the TF episode will touch on them, but why not take a deep dive.

True. I'd love to see episodes dedicated to those lines...It's just that looking at this purely from the perspective of toys released, I'm not sure there'd be much to talk about. Voltron had toys in 1985, 1998, and now in 2017/18 (are they even making any new ones??). That's it. And of course while Macross has a great and continuing legacy in Japan, that's not really Robotech... ;) (Though I'd love to hear the story about how Exo Squad and Robotech got integrated, most people don't even know about that). . Not trying to be a downer, and I hope I'm wrong, I'd love to see episodes dedicated to these lines, just trying to look at things objectively.

The shows were ok, but it was puzzling why they omitted the problems Hasbro had with their "super buff" Star Wars figure line (so much so that it created the monstrous buff Leia and most of the figures couldn't fit into the vehicle cockpits), plus the lack of coverage as to the controversy surrounding Mattel with Conan the Barbarian and He-Man (they were taken to court, I believe).

And why no Pixel Dan in the He-Man episode?

I was able to watch the first three episodes in the past couple of days, and I really enjoyed the style of the narration and documentary! The Barbie one was probably the highlight of them all so far though, as it had even more ruthlessness than what the MOTU people did to Mark Taylor (and that was kind of hinted at in the episode itself).

Going to try getting through GI Joe today, but the opening already had my eyes rolling so hard I scored a critical hit.

The image of Bay scares me. I hope they don't spend an inordinate amount of time on Bayformers and completely skip over the stuff that has kept long time fans and collectors engaged.

Overall though, I've enjoyed every episode of this show. It's fun to see some of the personalities and the stories of how stuff was done. It also has a fun sense of humor about it. I can't wait to see what they do with TFs. ;)^

Doubtful.. The GI Joe episode didn't even include Action Force in the UK and the "GI-Joe/Henshin Cyborg/Microman/Diaclone/Transformers" circle of life, as they were outside the US. I wish they had mentioned also that outside the US, I think the US flag was replaced? GI-Joe, probably due to its nationalism, just never really caught on outside the US.
