Action Figure News - April-May Issue #6 - Micro Collection Article

This 1992 magazine featured an unreleased micro collection set on the cover and has some interesting things to say about the line, as well as an amusing look at some 1992 loose and moc prices. I’ve posted the cover of this in Lastest Pickups but the article is fun enough that I thought I’d make a thread for it rather than spamming all the contents over there.

This also includes an early reference to 75,000 die cast tie bombers made, and apparently the subsequent issue had more details on the Bespin torture chamber set.

Hope you guys find this as interesting as I did... those prices..  rofl

I thought it was pretty interesting. I was just flipping through a cabinet of mostly 90’s Toy Fare mags and found that right near the end. It was just surprising to see that set on the front cover.
