written by Anthony Daniels

foreword by J.J. Abrams

hardcover (272 pages)

DK Publishing

ISBN 978-0-2414-4528-0

$ 150.00 / £100.00

solicitation copy:

When Star Wars burst on to the big screen in 1977, an unfailingly polite golden droid called C-3PO captured imaginations around the globe. But C-3PO wasn’t an amazing display of animatronics with a unique and unforgettable voiceover. Inside the metal costume was an actor named Anthony Daniels.

In this deeply personal memoir, Anthony Daniels recounts his experiences of the epic cinematic adventure that has influenced pop culture for more than 40 years. For the very first time, he candidly describes his most intimate memories as the only actor to appear in every Star Wars film – from his first meeting with George Lucas to the final, emotional days on the set of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

With a foreword by J.J. Abrams, this book is a nostalgic look back at the Skywalker saga as it comes to a close. I Am C-3PO: The Inside Story reveals Anthony Daniels’ vulnerability, how he established his role and what he accomplished, and takes readers on a journey that just happens to start in a galaxy far, far away.

This limited, special edition contains:
•  A shrinkwrapped, embossed slipcase with gold foil accents.
•  A hardcover edition of I AM C-3PO: The Inside Story signed by Anthony Daniels
with gold gilded edges.
•  An envelope containing 3 exclusive prints.
•  A removable “Signed Collector’s Edition” sticker.

Limited to 500 copies so allocations are likely

Limited to 1,000 copies, this collector’s edition is signed and hand-numbered by Anthony Daniels. It also includes three exclusive printed cards with personal commentaries by Anthony. This covetable edition has gilded edges and is presented in a bespoke slipcase adorned with Daniels’ foiled signature.

“The odds of me ever writing a book were approximately… Oh, never mind. My golden companion worries about such things – I don’t. I have indeed now written a book – telling my story, in my voice, not his – recognising that our voices and our stories are inextricably intertwined.”

Blue Milk LLC

press-release:

Former Toy Industry Professionals Form Media Company; Announce Premium Star Wars Action Figure Guide

ROVIDENCE, R.I. – June 7, 2019 – Today, Blue Milk LLC launches Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Archive Edition book on crowd-funding site Kickstarter. Starting from $50 for early bird backers, the Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Archive Edition is a comprehensive historical manuscript and detailed visual archive of one of Hasbro’s most popular lines of 3.75-inch Star Wars action figures, The Vintage Collection (TVC).

Written by Derryl DePriest, former Vice President of Global Brand Management and Star Wars brand team leader at Hasbro, the book comprises approximately 300 pages detailing TVC action figures, creatures, vehicles and playsets. Each item in the collection will feature a write-up informed by inside knowledge from the design and marketing team, and will be accompanied by crisp, high-resolution photos. The volume will be printed on premium-quality paper, bound in a deluxe hardcover.

“The Vintage Collection is one of the greatest toy lines of all time, offering an incredible balance between source material accuracy, detail and playability,” according to DePriest. “Our goal with The Vintage Collection Archive Edition is to pay tribute to this amazing series and the team that created it, offering spectacular photography and new insights for the long-time fan while acting as a primer covering the entire series for the newer collector.”

Joining DePriest are co-authors D. Martin Myatt and Rich Alot. The trio will self-publish the book under their newly formed company Blue Milk LLC. Steve Sansweet, Star Wars super-collector and President and CEO of Rancho Obi-Wan, will write the foreword.

“Introduced in 2010 with roots in the legendary 1978 Kenner Star Wars toy line, The Vintage Collection has grown to include hundreds of figures, vehicles, and special sets. Keeping track of everything available is challenging, and The Vintage Collection Archive Edition will be an invaluable resource to fans and collectors alike,” Sansweet says.

The book’s Kickstarter campaign offers a variety of backer rewards for those supporting the project, including a TVC compendium poster by Kim Simmons, Kenner’s principal Star Wars photographer between 1981-2000. In another tie to the original toy line, the poster uses the actual yellow background seen on Star Wars action figure packaging in the ’80s. In addition to the backer rewards, the campaign has stretch goals to unlock more content and chapters.

Book Specs:

  • Deluxe hardcover in an 9.25 x 11.5 inch (23.5 x 29.5 cm) format
  • Professionally designed layout with easy to use reference guide featuring high-resolution photos and detailed write ups printed on premium quality paper
  • Comprehensively covers every The Vintage Collection (TVC) 3.75-inch action figure, creature, vehicle and playset.
  • Chapter breaks with full-page width photos inspired by classic Kenner-era packaging
  • Additional content unlocked with stretch goals
  • Approximately 300 pages
  • December 2019 delivery
