    Where to buy?

    Hey. I collect the 3 3/4 inch figures. I also collect gamorrean guard stuff. In my local collector shop he had a micro machine set with bantha, gamorrean, and bib fortuna. I had to have it because of the guard. I opened it and I love these little things. I never thought to look into them, but they are cool. I looked at Brians toys to see all the different sets that existed. but alot were sold out. So I thought Id ask you guys, wheres a good place online to buy these.

    also. on brians toys it has micro machine sections and action fleet sections. arent they the same thing both made by micro machine? Why do they need seperate sections
    and the set I got today was action fleet battle pack#3. Mine came with a tusken, bib, gamorrean, and the one sister. But no ponda baba. the brians toy picture of the set shows ponda baba.

    the best on-line retailer to buy action fleet and micro machines is D & S TOYS

    dave roberts who runs the place has over the years offered a good supply of micro machines for about the same as msrp. when he does get the tough to find items in stock, he does charge a little more for them, cause it cost him a little more to track em down. but shipping costs are always actual shipping charges, very reasonable.

    go check it out. the only other place to find a good source of mm's is to go trolling through ebay, and don't forget to look daily at the ebay micro machines alert thread, sicqnus does a fabulous job of keeping track of all micro machine auctions of interest.

    i particularly appreciate sicqnus's efforts, as i am the originator of that alert thread, but never gave it the kind of dedication that sicqnus has displayed time and time again.

    Good Shot Jansen is right. I dealt with Dave and he is a super guy! And I don't own a credit card so we made something different. He found for me some rare items and the prices are super.

    Many stores seperate MicroMachines from the Action Fleet, even though they are both MicroMachine, it's just an easier way to find stuff. Some catagorize even further for the Battle packs, Planet sets, Transforming Heads etc.....

    I've found that Brian's toys does have a problem with their pictures being of the "actual" item being sent. You have to email them to be certain of which version you're getting. The Battlepack #3 originally did come with the Ponda Baba figure, but was later dropped from the package. You can see pics of the different packs here at ToyForce

    When i first started collecting micromachines battle packs,
    i noticed that the first 6 battle packs had a change{'variant'}
    about them..
    What i mean is the first 6 battle packs later had an additional
    figure added to them. I currently have 2 sets of the first 6
    battlepacks because of this..............

    Shopping Maul, unless I've misread your post, the Battlepack info you have is "backwards" the first 8 Battle Packs have an extra figure that is omitted in the second and later release Battle Packs.
