I just hope we get something rad....The prequels were....not what I was expecting. I want something to blow me away....
Bumping up an oldie here....but recently my parents had brought out some tubs of old toys to have out when we visit so our daughter has stuff to play with. Anyways, one tub was filled with several (incomplete) micro machine sets. I personally didn't have these, but my brother (who is 12 years younger than me) apparently had several - and my daughter and I had a lot of fun playing with these recently. Most of them are the "head" sets that I remember somewhat, and there is also a Falcon in there. Anyways, I really know next to nothing about micro machines, but I was wondering if these are hard to pick up these days? Kind of thought about picking some up to have here at home, but wasn't sure what was the right way to go. The transforming head sets seemed kind of neat, and I'd love to get a Falcon one, but wasn't sure how rare/pricey this stuff was these days. Either way, I have to say, they are some fun little toys.
Like Jesse said...almost every single one of them has been clearanced and the amount and severity of clearance keeps growing.
And it's not always about the 30-40 somethings anyway, remember kids love this stuff. If you could only see how much my son loves the Turbo Tank... and they aren't cheap on ebay either.
Wow, it sounds like a amazing item. I can't see getting it myself, unless it goes crazy clearance like the shuttle did. While it will have a lot of buzz going for it with the movie out, it is still a big rounded brown terd that carries nameless battle droids...
As a star wars geek, I can see wanting one, but as a parent looking for something cool for $100 or more, I'm not sure this thing has much curb appeal. the turbo tank looked like a monster truck, the AT-AT is a mechanized dino, and the Falcon is the Falcon. This one needs spinning rims, air shocks, and a subwoofer to be cool.
