You'll have to excuse the thread title, :doh:

Anyho, I was at the store yesterday morning, and I went down the cereal and breakfast aisle. That is when I discovered a box of corn flakes, with FREAKIN' ANI AND VADER ON THE COVER!!! I jumped for joy, but then had to stop jumping, because I saw an even better find. A box of cornpops with a FREAKIN' LIGHTSABER SPOON THAT LIGHTS UP AND EVERYTHING!!!

I was like :eek:, and the other people in the aisle were like :confused:

And I felt so cool this morning eating my cornpops and igniting my saber spoon :p


So what all have you seen, or bought from the mass advertising for Episode III?

Back on topic: I haven't actually seen any merchandising for it here, except the pretty horrible (in my opinion) teaser poster with Ani's cape at the cinema. :(

Not very many stuff, I can't make a list because quite a bit of the stuff is gone. But where the heck do you get the Dark Choclat M&MS!? I drove all the way to SUper Target and they weren't there! Or Target ((Which IS closer)) and some other stores. I'm like "We drove all the way out here to buy them, AND THEY AREN'T EVEN HERE? WHere the heck are they!?"

This is pretty intense. Star Wars merchandising is always fun, when you can walk into nearly any store, and see something Star Wars. It is really exiting. Merchandising has not been this fun since before the release of TPM. AOTC, kind of played low on the merchandising scale.

So far, i've only purchased action figures, but I got my eye on some ROTS Pez despensers. Those fetch a pretty penny. I have quite a few from years past.

Are any of the Fast Food chains doing premiums again this time around?

Because Star Wars is infinitely cooler than Winnie the Pooh. Dur.

Star Wars gummies?! AWESOME!

The only thing I do with the Winnie The Pooh gummies is eat them and torture my little cousins with them. Like jabbing a toothpick in piglet and cuting off the heads of the others. It is quite fun. Then I give them the gummies and become a good loveable cousin. In the end they just got a learning lesson about Medieval times/torture.

My daughter likes the Lava Colored, Star Wars Pop-Tarts... okay, I eat as many as she does :)

I'm thinking of piggy-backing the hype and putting my old 1977 action figures on Ebay... complete with Darth Vader storage case...

Maybe I can make a buck or two. I only have a few left (R2D2, a stormtrooper, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and a couple other minor characters. I sold the Obi Wan for $27 when Episode I came out! The Darth Vader figure went for even more -don't remember how much though.
