1997 Taco Bell Star Wars:SE Promotion

Taco Bell Star Wars Premiums


Applause made eight Star Wars Taco Bell premiums given away during the U.S. Special Edition release promotion. I was lucky enough to receive a set of the toys from Applause so I could put infomation about them on my web site. The picture above was provided by Applause. The toys are really great overall. Not cheap throw away toys, but something worth collecting. The toys are Balancing Boba Fett, Puzzle Cube, Yoda, Millennium Falcon Gyro, R2-D2 Playscape, Exploding Death Star, Bespin's Cloud City and Magic Cube,

Toy notes:

Boba Fett flies over the Pit of Carkoon.
Puzzle Cube has four scenes from the Special Edition.
You engage the Falcon's engines with a pull and it appears to fly on its stand.
You can put Leia inside the R2-D2 playscape and it comes with a movie card.
The Death Star spins, opens and you can see sparks inside. Initially the Death Star spinner was pulled from the promotion because it was coming apart under heavy use. It was later replaced by spinners that were modifed to prevent the failures.
Cloud City floats in mid-air
You can see Vader and Yoda in the Magic Cube, but never at the same time. My favorite.
Yoda was the under age three toy that was availabe all during the promotion.

KFC Cups

These four cups were only offered outside the US during the Special Edition promotions at Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants. Each cup came with a vinyl top and a straw. As you can see they make a very nice looking set.

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.
