I'm trying to nail down when Galoob acquired their Star Wars license and the first appearance of SW MicroMachines.
The following clause is from Hasbro's September 1998 'amended' SW toy license agreement with Lucasfilm. (It anticipates Hasbro's October '98 acquisition of Galoob and that company's micro-toy license):
Based on this paragraph, I'm thinking that Galoob aquired the license in October 1992."; and (iv) those various license agreements between Licensor and Lewis
Galoob Toys, Inc. now known as Galoob Toys, Inc., on behalf of itself
and/or any or all of its affiliated, related and subsidiary entities
including, without limitation, that certain license agreement dated as of
October 30, 1992, as amended, including by agreements dated as of May 14,
1997 and dated as of July 24, 1997."
Now for the first releases... I have toy receipts from Summer 1994 that clearly describe SW MicroMachine purchases. However, some of the MM vehicles I own have 1993 datestamps molded onto them. I do have toy receipts from 1993 but they don't have any product descriptions. Does anyone know if the first SW MicroMachines were released in 1993?
