SPECIAL GIVEAWAYS

MICRO MACHINES SPECIAL EDITION MINI THREE PACK Initially, this package was given out to the lucky few (300-400) that attended the Los Angeles premiere of the Star Wars Special Edition on January 18th, 1997. It was also given away in North America to the first 100 people at many of the local first evening showing of Star Wars Special Edition on January 31st, 1997. It is my understanding that there were 150,000 given away. Galoob gave them away at the 1997 International Toy Fair in New York City and also on their web page. As to the size of it, at 4" long, the packaging is very small and the ships inside are really tiny.

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.
