BUILD YOUR ARMIES Star Wars

                                                                 Micro Collection Mail Away

Every set in Kenner's Micro Collection featured a mail in offer for a special package of six diecast figures. The "Build Your Armies" offer gave collectors the chance to send in two Micro Collection proof of purchases in exchange for a set three unique Hoth Rebel Soldiers and three unique Hoth Stormtroopers.

The offer, which expired on January 31, 1983, actually outlived the product line and considering the 10-12 weeks the offer stated as the wait time for delivery, the "Build Your Armies" set was the last piece released in this underrated collection.

  • With the overwhelming demand for the Emperor action figure send away (and presumably the underwhelming orders for the "BYA" set, Kenner sent these figures along with a note to many collectors that had to wait for more Emperor figures to be produced. The note included in that version of this set is pictured above.
