ROTS Burger King Promos
« on: November 17, 2004, 11:47 AM »
RS has a story up covering this in further detail HERE.  We usually stay clear of eating much fast food, but after seeing this pic I have the feeling we might be visiting Burger King next year.  Check the big "poster" pic HERE

Edit: Removed the ginormous pic, you can check it out at the linky above. :)

What the hell is a boga?  And chase Happy Meal Toys (or whatever BK calls them)?  Wow, they're really stretching this collectible thing. 

I'm not going to go out of the way to get all of these, but may pick some up if I eat at BK (which may not be all that much now since I got a Veggieburger instead of a bacon double cheeseburger  >:()

I found that funny. Sorry to hear about your Burger misfortune. I've loved BK's promotions since they did The Lost World Jurassic Park Watches. I can't wait.

Very slooooooooooow connection today, so didn't see the RS pics, but undoubtedly I'll pick a few up.  Fortunately up here you can just outright buy the toys, sometimes you have to buy food or a drink, but not always.  BK Kids Meals is the officious name up here.  

The pull backs look pretty neat.

Wind ups are meh, ok.  Can easily pass on Watto and Amidala, maybe Grievous (I may be the only one, but he does very little for me).

Squirters are also meh, Boba, emperor, maybe Jabba.  Jar Jar (aka spawn of ewok) only to melt or shoot at.

Plush doesn't do a thing for me, but the kid will undoubtedly want them.  She'll probably love the frickin' Ewok, showing George that yes, the target audience is four to five years old ::)

Image viewers look pretty boring too.  Maul, Luke, maybe Mace.

Oh look, a chase piece.  Great, just ******* great.  Hmm, Walmart employees hoard chase figures to sell on ebay, I can't imagine Burger King employees doing the same ::)

I wonder if they'll offer up complete mail away sets like they did for their LOTR toys?

I might be able to help some people with the Chase piece. My friends dad runs a local BK, and I can have him snag a few for me, if possible.

Is there another link to the pic? It's been pulled.  :(

I'm game for some fast food collectibles. As long as it doesn't go wildly out of control like the Taco Bell/KFC/Pizza Hut mess in '99.

Sounds awesome, I will take you up on it. I was a little worried when I heard about that.

Yep, again, I'll talk to my friend, see if he can talk to his Pa, and I'll see how many I can get.

Yeah, otherwise I think we'd all have to a repeat version of "Supersize Me" to score all of this.  Then we can compare liver diseases!

I really hope BK offers a full mail-away set of those things, since I need more food than what a Kid's Meal offers. Not to mention buying a kid's meal when I don't have kids.

Ha!  At least I've got the excuse of having a daughter.  Now, if they'd just build one in my town in the next week...   ::)
