Part of the initial release of Episode I products made available on May 3, 1999, the Anakin Skywalker's Pod Racer gave Star Wars fans an early look at one of the key events in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. The vehicle came with an exclusive pack in Anakin Skywalker figure that was designed to fit into the Pod Racer and grasp both of the driving sticks. The toy itself featured a handle portion with two triggers that allowed the user to open the flaps and steering fins on each engine.
