On This Date In Star Wars History - May 3, 1999

Bespin refugee - May 03, 2023

The first products based on "Episode 1" were officially released.

I don't believe I went to the 'Midnight Madness"event, but, I do remember running around a day or two later, checking out the books (like the 'sticker book with image of "Bail Antilles"(?)), the soundtrack cd (with the infamous spoiler track, "Qui-Gon's Noble End"), and of course, the toys. I believe the first two figures I picked up were Padme/Queen Amidala and Darth Maul.

What are your memories from that time? Feel free to post in the comment section.
