    Please Bring Back Micro Machines

    Dear Hasbro,

    I know there is little chance anyone from Hasbro will read all of this, and even less that they will actually produce anything off of it. But I can hope. Please make some of these happen!

    I love micro machines and have collected them ever since the Galoob days. Movie and TV ships vehicles and figures are my all-time favorite. I was deeply distressed when MM would canceled after The Force Awakens. While I realize that the line may not have made enough money to continue, I think I know a way to revitalize it. Focusing on Star wars fandom is a decent start, but there are so many franchises across SciFi that have huge followings. Creating a micro machine line of those properties would bring in collectors and casual fans from all over the SciFi fandoms.

    I came up with a list of potential Micro Machine ships that could be packaged as a SciFi line. I tried to stay away from franchises that have already been produced, anime and video games (although a few no sneak in), as there is a reach well of ships to draw from classic and current movies and TV shows. Here are four deluxe packs (5 shps and 2 figures) and 16 three pack pairings that would be awesome for release.

    You list some potentially interesting sci-fi packs, one glaring issue though - they don't have the license for those properties. I do wish they'd give us more SW MM though, especially capital ships from the recent movies and some of the never before released PT and CW ships / vehicles that weren't even produced in the Titanium or HW lines.

    I wasn't really impressed with the return of Micro Machines a couple of years back. Those things just sat around in our store and we couldn't get rid of them until we started taking -200% to -300% markdowns.

    I thought the line was cool back in 1994, but almost forgot about them entirely once the 3.75" action figure line restarted in 1995. Between 1995 to their first cancellation, in 1999, I think I maybe purchased two sets. Both of which were quickly dropped into a box and forgotten about.
