Taco Bell also released a set of 4 collectors cups outside of the U.S.

I want to say I was able to get those cups in the US at the (now long gone) FAO Schwartz at Ceasars Casino shops mall in Las Vegas. They had a "cantina" set up at one point.

I loved that. I also have the cup from FAO cantina, but it is much different and didn't have a topper. It just has a red lid.. Steve Sansweet has the Bith band animitronics at Rancho... As far as the Taco Bell foil Meal boxes, I have to dig for them but I have them all.

As part of cleaning out my parent's attic, I just found the full run of these toys. For me, the Vader/Yoda Mirror cube is the best - it just looks great. I'm displaying that one along with the Burger King Han Solo in Carbonite from the 90's as well, which is my fave Star Wars kids meal item, ever.

As with other posted, I have the complete set as well. Still bagged and the collector cups as well.
Plus, I was able to get some of the promo material as well.

I remember all too well going to Taco Bell, KFC and Pizza Hut that year.
Hard to believe over 20 yrs ago.
