Supermarket alert

Post by Wildstar » Wed Feb 16, 2005 9:47 pm

10 oz. boxes of Cheez-Its crackers are now being sold in an Episode III collector's box featuring R2-D2 on the front. In fact, you might want to get at least 3 boxes...there's also a poster offer ($2.99, not sure if you have to fork over postage as well) on the box which requires 2 UPC symbols and an order form printed on the inside.

Informationally but really newsworthy speaking there is also pop tarts and fruit snacks I hear.

Also a line of 60s psychedelic home furnishings coming out. All Episode III related. Mace Windu Purple lava lamps. Darth Vader Orange beaded curtains and bean bag chairs. etc.

Lucasfilm has always done the food and soda tie ins but I was surprised at the home furnishings things. I saw it at a couple of websites and then saw it on starwars.com so I guess I had to believe it. The primary colors will be that late 60's early 70's heinous burnt orange/red. I think for the Lava.

However, there will be some homage to the Blues, Greens of the Jedi Sabers and of Course Mace's purple one was mentioned.

I saw Kellogg's products (cereal, Pop Tarts) in Star Wars boxes in the supermarket today, so be on the lookout for those, as well.

Are you sure they will be on coke and pepsi products? I have only heard that they contracted with pepsi co. If you look at jcouncil.com main page I listed a news piece talking about all the biggest promotions starting on April 2.

They were all from a listing on http://www.starwars.com.

M&Ms is coming out with lightsabers full of minis and Special Dark Side dark chocolate M&Ms!!
