This was a fun read from the past and had some interesting videos attached. The first video made me notice this one about hard toy production and I thought it was amazing the amount of work that goes into making these toys - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCXj2icgcPQ

There are so many people and stages to each toy and the whole time I was watching it I couldn't help but wonder what these workings are getting paid to do these jobs, how can these people possibly make a living with the amount that are charged for these things?!

Intersting to see the whole process though and although it's not Star Wars I'm sure a lot of it is along the same lines.
