The Toys That Made Us Comes To Blu-Ray With Extended Peter Cullen Interview And Tour Of Takara With Hideaki Yoke

BloodyDisgusting reports that the first two seasons of The Toys That Made Us, the Netflix series of documentaries on the making of classic toylines, is coming to Blu-Ray on October 1st! And as befits a Blu-Ray release there's a decent stack of extras included. Most pertinent to our interests here are an extended cut of an interview with Peter Cullen, voice of Optimus Prime and Ironhide, as well as a tour of TakaraTomy given by Hideaki Yoke himself! Yoke was lead designer on Transformers for many years and worked on the brand from its inception until his retirement in 2017. Definitely worth checking out!

The full set of special features:

Featurette with Show Creator Brian Volk-Weiss
Barbie 80’s Marketing
More Stores That Made Us: GI Joe the Story of COBRA

The set also comes with a collectible trinket of the show's logo. Amazon currently has the set on preorder for $26.99.
