Merchandise Monday #50

Let’s go back to the 90s with  Star Wars Micro Machines! I know Micro Machines is still making Star Wars merchandise today, but I don’t feel the quality is the same as it was in the 90s:

The helmet cases open up to reveal specific scenes from the Star Wars universe. Some of the Micro Machine characters are so small, but the detail is still pretty good on that scale. Look how cute the little Ewok is below ❤ :

Some machines are bigger and have moving parts. The speeder below can ‘explode’ and disintegrate when you push a button (I think it’s about 4 parts assembled):

It’s my favorite place in the Star Wars universe: Jabba’s Palace! This is so cool, the trapdoor that Luke stands on actually does fall open when Jabba’s throne hits a weighted-lever. Of course the Rancor is waiting to receive Luke in the pit:

The next Micro Machine scene is the garbage compactor on the Death Star. Again, the chute to the garbage area actually opens and the figures can slide down. The walls also actually move to close in on the characters:

Where would we be without our two trusty droids, hmm? Let’s not leave out R2-D2 and C-3PO. Here they are in their escape pod headed for Tatooine:

The various Star Wars Micro Machine vehicles also have opening/ closing doors and cockpits for the figures to sit in, with other moving parts:
