The Musée des Arts Décoratifs Toy Gallery will be showing Star Wars Toys from 4 October 2012 to 17 March 2013. The exhibition will retrace the thirty-five-year history of the saga's toys and spin-off merchandise, revealing the full scope of this extraordinary legacy passed down from generation to generation.
The universe created by George Lucas has generated countless toys, games, comic books and a whole range of other products. A selection of four hundred toys and objects, mainly figures produced by Hasbro and its subsidiary Kenner, will be shown in an exhibition design by the French collective H5. Displayed in the chronological order of the films' releases, the toys' various production stages will also be revealed, from prototype to the final product, as well as the fabrication secrets of some of the most popular toys of all time.
