Special Give Aways

Initially, this package was given out to the lucky few (300-400) that attended the LA premiere of the Star Wars Special Edition on January 18, 1997. It was also given away nationwide to the first 50-100 people at the each local first evening showing of SW:SE on February 7. It is my understanding that there were 150,000 given away. Galoob gave them away at the 1997 New York Toy Fair and also on their web page. As to the size of it, at 4" long, it is very small and the ships inside are really tiny.

Falcon Give Away

I got this Bronze Millennium Falcon from a Suncoast Video store one night when I bought some other Star Wars Micro Machine stuff there. I have since heard that they gave them away to people who pre-ordered the Star Wars THX trilogy tapes. It appears to be the same ship that's in the Bronze Collectors Gift Set.

These are scans of three Certificates Of Authenticity that accompanied the mail-away vehicles customers in Australia were offered with purchase of one of the six Special Edition tapes. There was a different vehicle offered with each of the six tapes. Three movies, regular and widescreen versions make up the six. With each movie purchase, you also got one toy offer certificate to mail in. Thanks to perplex for the scans of his certificates.

I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
