In 1996 Semic (the same company which published Marvel's Star Wars comics in Finland) started to publish Dark Horse's comic books in Finland. However, it didn't last very long. After issue #6 in 1997 (Shadows of the Empire, Part 3) it was canceled. All the 12 issues published in 1996-1997 were "Special issues".

When Pimeä Uhka (The Phantom Menace) came out in 1999, Yhtyneet Kuvalehdet Oy started new Star Wars comic. It ran from 1999 till 2002, and was canceled after issue #12 in 2002.

Next year, 2003, Egmont Kustannus Oy (formerly Semic) once again started to publish these "Specials" 2/year.

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
