Part of the initial release of Episode I products made available on May 3, 1999, the Sebulba'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 Sebulba figure that was designed to fit into the Pod Racer and grasp the controls. The toy itself featured a handle portion with a trigger that allowed the user to activate a cartoonish spring out spinning blade on the side of the left engine.
