Millennium Falcon Month, Day 1: Micro Machines

1 Micro Machines MF

(LEGO Han Solo included for scale)

During the mid-90's, Star Wars was experiencing a huge resurgence, with the POTF2 and many, many, MANY other toy lines. One of the great things to come out of this resurrection was the Micro Machines line of Star Wars vehicles, which included not only teeny, tiny versions of your favorite ships, but also the Action Fleet which were larger and included teeny, tiny figures to pilot them, as well as several larger vehicle-shaped playsets.

Galoob released this version of the Millennium Falcon for three years. In 1993/94 it was included in a 3-pack along with Micro Machines versions of the X-wing and Star Destroyer, and in 1995 it was included in a new 3-pack with Luke Skywalker's Landspeeder and the Jawa Sandcrawler. There were also die-cast versions of the ship available as single-carded toys and these were, as far as I can tell, the same mold.

I'll be honest, I don't know which of the two 3-packs the one pictured came from. I have the other four vehicles it was included with, and I have 3 or 4 more Falcons as well.

I remember having that Falcon and about a thousand other Star Wars Micro Machines, and a few of the playsets. Some day, I'd get them all out, and afterwards my floor would look like some epic battle had taken place.

My toy room looks like that now. Except instead of a Star Wars battle, it looks like a Star Wars, GI Joe, Transformers, LEGO, and Gundam battle took place.

I really need to quit letting my kids play in there.

Eh, I'd say it's worth it. You'll just have to threaten to beat them or something (SARCASM) if they don't at least help clean up.

My desk also looks like some giant multi-universe battle took place. Mostly it's stuff I want to review, have reviewed, and/or have just been messing with lately.
