Film Threat described the film as, "well researched and fun to watch," and praised the production design and DVD of the film, but criticized some of the "drama," describing it as, "silly."[4] Jacob Tender of Substream Magazine gave the film five out of five stars, saying "[The film] is a must-have for fans of Star Wars and collectors alike."[5] Writing for Flickering Myth, Amy Richau gave it four out of four stars, saying "...the film is essentially a love letter to Star Wars toys – and a very enjoyable love letter at that."[6] Ian Gormely of Exclaim! gave it a five out of ten star rating, and described it as, "niche even by the extreme standards of Star Wars."[7]
