In the last year, I found two promotional packs (from different sellers), each of them including two complete collections from the mid 90s.
They come from Germany in a white box with several copyright (1994) and license notices in German (same sticker in both sets, even though one of them does not include cars from the brands that the license indicates: Ferrari, Chevrolet...), and a German address.
The first one has two collections of great racing cars: Ferrari, Porsche, Ford, Mercedes... some of the greatest brands of all times are represented.
The second one has a set of firefighters and a public workers, each of them with 3 vehicles and 3 people, where one of the vehicles is a "bigger" one: a long fire truck with ladder or a mobile construction crane.
They are very rare, I have seen them only from one seller each.
The sport cars set was offered to me by a seller (not on eBay) and I bought the only two boxes this person had. He told me that they were a present for visitors at a car fair in Vienna by the mid 90s, what I found very interesting. Promotional give-aways are always hard to find.
The collections included in this pack are: #17 Decades: The '80s and #20 Hall of Famers, both from 1995.

|#20 Hall of Famers in promotional pack|
The firefighters/public workers set was for sale on eBay and the seller had many of them (I bought three), so I guess there are already many out there in the hands of MM collectors.
The collections included are: #32 Road Construction and #33 Fire Rescue, both from 1995.
