    The following measures were in effect in an effort to make the exclusives as widely available as possible:

  • Exclusives were sold on through a raffle system.
  • Exclusives were limited to one of each per adult.
  • Badges were punched with a Gentle Giant logo for purchases of Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise.
  • Attendees with punched badges were not be allowed to purchase additional exclusives.
  • Point of Interest: Of the 5,000 sets produced, 500 "glow-in-the-dark" sets were made as a hidden variant. The only way to know if you've got one of these sets is to open up the box! To see what happens when you turn out the lights, simply roll over the image below.

    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.
