    These bring back such fond memories. The whole leadup to TPM was a magical time for a kid like me who grew up with the OT, and was the perfect age to relish in all the Star Wars goodness of the late 90s.

    To this day, I think of this promo whenever I set foot in a Yum! restaurant.

    I concur with The_Chosen_1's statements. Fond memories. I really wish they had done similar promos for AOTC and ROTS. Those Planet globes are my favourites.

    I got the Sidious mirror set and was wondering how it's supposed to work. Nothing happens with mine and I'm wondering what could be wrong with it. I recall the mirror image changing, but that's about it.

    As far as I know, you're supposed to turn the wheel on the back and an image of Darth Vader should appear in the the mirror. I'm not entirely sure how it works but it could be battery operated.

    yeah- those 12 cups are some my favorite items in my collection. I loved the whole TPM experience, it was truly an awesome summer. We had so much trouble in my area finding the Sebulba cup, but it worked out eventually. Whenever I walk into Taco Bell, and it's rare now-that smell, I instantly think of the film-mostly Tatooine. Back then TB was alone in my area, KFC was still separate. We went there for the whole summer like once a week for the SW fix, and all the goodness within. Pizza Hut also had 12 stickers in a candy machine by the door (25 or 50 cents) scored those also. They were all the common shots, 2x3"-N1 in space, face close ups, pods, etc.

    If I recall correctly there were also a couple of "frisbees" released with this promotion. I want to say there was a Battle Droid, a Jar-Jar and maybe a Sebulba?

    ETA: There were two "Flying Bucket Toppers" from KFC - Jar-Jar and a Battle Droid.

    They released a lot of food toys yikes.

    We only have KFC doing promos here from memory so we only had like 4 or so of the toys and some cups.

    The KFC chicken BUCKETS with the EP I graphics on them were fantastic collectibles... I have them and fill them with all the tiny little collectibles I've gathered over the years. Neat because the way I use them, they actually serve a purpose.
