    MM - Micro Machines

    AF - Action Fleet

    Minifig - galoob mini figures (either the MM minifigs that were micro statues or the AF minifigs which were straight-limbed guys with articulated arm and leg sets)

    SSD - Super Star Destroyer

    By the way gang, RAC is the Venator because RAC is short for the packaged name: Republic Attack Cruiser

    Same thing with the RBR for the Tantive IV, that's the Rebel Blockade Runner.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    This is not really MM related, and for English speaking people may be really easy to understand, but I spent a lot of time to interpret it

    IIRC - If I Recall (or remember) Correctly

    Ah, there are also my greetings which may be confusing for not Italians
