Five years ago, Brian Hickey had an idea: re-create the entire Star Wars Original Trilogy using nothing more than the old Kenner toys.
He worked diligently, collecting vintage figures and creating all the necessary effects in-camera. And then when it was pointed out he'd need a license to publish his book, he reached out to Disney... who sent him a form letter rejection without even reading the question.
But a labor of love deserves to be seen, and while Hickey couldn't find a publisher for his book, there's absolutely nothing saying he can't release it online for free. So now you can enjoy all his hard work, even if he's not making any money from the effort.
See the whole thing here. And let him know his hard work didn't go to waste.
