Just got the answer from Hasbro's customer team, seems like there are no plans for any new Star Wars MicroMachines line. So if we want to make it happen, more people should reach out to them as well !

Thank you for contacting Hasbro! We appreciate your continued support and for taking the time to let us know how much you have enjoyed our products over the years!

Regrettably, we do not have future product release dates or other information available to share, I'm sorry. But I will certainly share your comments with our team so that they are also aware of your excellent feedback!

Again, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to reach out to us, have a wonderful rest of your day!

They didn't say that there aren't any plans though :)

Just that there aren't release dates or information "available to share" (outside of Hasbro)

Yep, the customer service team wouldn't be the ones to get information on unannounced ftture products, and even if they did they wouldn't reveal Hasbro's plans via customer service email!

Them saying there's "no release dates" or "information to share" about anything is just them saying there aren't any currently announced Star Wars Micro-Machines products they can tell you about, as that's all they'd know about and be able to say.

Still, I doubt there are any plans at all - the best chance for this sort of thing was with the movies really, and it seems it didn't go well enough last time for them to bother continuing the line.

The Disney + shows could bring about a revival though :) Mandalorian, Cassian Andor, Obi Wan, and few others rumoured.

They cross the time frame, so could easily allow them to re-use clone wars era, class trilogy and new trilogy ships/vehicles/characters/beasts whilst adding some new never before seen ones from those eras.

Well, Wicked Cool Toys anwsered the classical Customer team's answer:



Hopefully my message will still be read by someone who cares. How about you guys push them and also send them mails showing support to the SW MM line ? Maybe with enough support something can be done.
That's excellent news. I happened to see new Micro Machine lines (cars, trucks and the like) at my local Wal-Mart. So, I am hopeful to see that line again in SW. Will be reaching out.

Yeah, there’s also playsets. Including a reissue (or maybe new version?) of the big van that transforms into a city.

id love if they started doing Star Wars ships again!

I gotta say.. I wasn't impressed with the new "Hasbro" version of Micro Machines. I have a lot of the original Galoob versions and the new Hasbro version falls kinda short in my opinion.
The original Micro Machines had tons of licensed vehicles. It was pretty deflating because as far as I can tell none of the new ones are of any actual car. It's a shame too because with advancements in manufacturing they look more detailed, sharper edges, and better quality at such a small scale compared to the original. If they do some fighter jets and an aircraft carrier playset I may pick it up simply for nostalgia as that was one of my favorite toys as a kid.

I was happy to see them return with Hasbro, however briefly, but I agree - the original MM were far superior - easily some of my favorite childhood toys. It would be great if another company released them as Galoob once did, with the same type of plastic, paint, and overall quality.

I was not too happy when I saw picks of these in the NY Toyshow but I'm actually digging these new MM's.

I was also disappointed not to see licensed sets but these are nicely designed for fantasy cars and the city and fire dept sets look cool. I think it's a good start since we will see licensed sets in spring.

As far as quality, I think they're fine but I do agree that we need some painted bodies.

The reasons I like these new MM's:

• sharper detail
• low profile look
• metallic rims
• three different sized wheels
• cars roll a lot better
• car's rear design looks better

I'll be the dissenting voice on the subject of new vs old Micros. I only picked them up selectively, but I was very impressed by most of the new ones, with far superior sculpts vs the old Galoob models, in my opinion. I found that they had much more detailed, crisp features and edges, more accurate proportions, etc. Call me a heretic, but I upgraded many of my MMs, selling the old and replacing them with the new. The main criticisms I had were the excessive repacks in each wave, softer plastics, and absence of stands, though I didn't use those anyhow so it wasn't as much of a big deal for me. I also wish there had ben more capital ships in the assortments, but that's par for the course in mini ship models, it seems.

In parts, I agree. The paintjobs and details were often far superior. However, the soft plastic was a big letdown, and some ships were not too well done. Still to this day, I present some good examples of the highlights of this line on my IG, like:

Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed the MM reboot, but I do think the plastic was an issue. I love how sturdy the original MM ships are, they feel like they're built to last, while some of the newer versions looked flimsy. Its hard to surpass the toys we grew up with, many collectors love the original Kenner figures far more than anything new as well, even though action figures have been evolving for decades. I personally appreciate them for what they are, and combine all my micros. I'd gladly campaign to see another revival!

I hope Micro Machines or someone does some airport type vehicles like fuel trucks and such. Maybe some military carge trucks as well. Need some small vehicles like that to go with my small diecast planes.

It's odd and disappointing that Micro Machines never made Transformers and real versions of GI Joe vehicles since Hasbro owns those IPs.
perhaps now that Hasbro has the license for Micro Machines we will start to see some new designs come out for Transformers and G.I. Joe. currently with JADA holding a license to produce replicas of those properties I'm not sure if Hasbro will be able to make micro machines versions as well.

the Jada ones are roughly in scale with the Galoob versions of Micro Machines (just slightly larger) but they work well with various lines including the Tonka series of Micro vehicles.

I'm gonna be throwing away boxes with inserts to several 1990's to present Star Wars Micro Machines playsets. I'll mail the instructions to anyone who wants them for free, or you can pay me shipping for the boxes. They're in nice display quality. I have Hoth, Death Star, Tatooine, Endor, Starkiller Base, and Jakku. To be clear these are just nice empties, no playset/figures included.
