Seems that Canadian collector’s are once more in for a treat, and I don’t mean because we’ll be eating more M&M’s in the next month than most people do in a lifetime. Unlike the American equivalents, It looks like we won’t have to go out to find all Seventy-six different packaging variations to get a complete set, at least judging by the lack of a ‘Collect All 76!’ type of message on the bags. Judging by image above that Canadian collector extraordinaire Scott Bradley sent us, our assortment also lacks the foil that makes the American counterpart shiny and desirable, but with the bilingual text and alternate character placement the Canadian M&M’s have their own reasons to shine!



UPDATE: In addition to the original report above, Scott also added that the individual packs (first image) do indeed have foil packaging, and that there are currently at least eight different sets of six individual packs in each box of forty-eight. The box pictured (second image) was found at Costco.

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
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.
