The Piggy Bank Menace

For Christmas back in 1999 my parents decided to give me the banks. I think at first the only gave me two of them. Obi Wan and Maul but when I learned about what they did, I had to get Qui-Gon to complete the set.

When connected together they'd interact with each other for an epic battle as scene in the movie.

I had these on my book self and would activate them all the time. It was a cool idea though as a "bank" I don't understand why they thought to use.

They had another with R2 and 3PO which I got later but wasn't as cool as this one.

There was a lot of merchandise that came out around the Phantom Menace, but this was one of the coolest in my opinion.
