The M-stuff is sucking me in too.

Burger King would be about all I ate if the promo was on in Indy next week.

Still need two UPC's for my cookie jar, so I'll be eating Rice Krispy squares for breakfast, possibly pop tarts as well. 

I have two red saber spoons, so would like to get hold of the green and blue as well. 

Don't get me started on M&M's and Skittles. 

Welcome to the great ROTS weight gain challenge :-X

Have you found this promo on Canadian packaging?  Or were you travelling to the good ol US of A again and getting packages this way?

I really want one of those cookie jars, but just assumed we wouldn't be lucky enough to get this promotion in Canuckia.

No Jesse, not up here.  UPC's from the US, sadly.  I'm not real hopeful for Canadian tie ins, though I expect there will be some small Frito Lay promotion and we've heard 7-11 will be running a promo up here as well.  Kellogg's appears to be out and I've not seen any indication that BK is in either, though that would be nice. 

Brian, you can go into most Burger King restaurants and just buy the toy without buying a meal.  They're usually only around $1 each.  I don't mind eating their food, though the kids meal burgers and chicken tenders are awful, but I do understand that consuming 40,000 calories at BK wouldn't be all that desirable ;)

Brent, if you want, bring one of your red spoons, and I'll bring my blue spoon, and we'll trade. Before I whoop your ass, that is. :-*

Well,

I don't usually get into the whole "food promo" area of collecting, but when one of the gals at my office offered this to me for FREE (thanks to her husband the Grocery Manager), I couldn't refuse!  :)



It's the Frito-Lay RotS/Vader display, fresh from the box!  I just got done assembling it and it is really cool.  You can kinda see the pictures from all parts of the saga (OT too!) in the back plate/sections. 

Vader stands about 6ft high, the back sections are about 8ft high.  Now I've just got to find a place for it in the SW Room!  ;)

 :o Damn Jeff, that looks awesome!

Just picked up a box of Frosted Flakes and got a red saber-spoon. I would like to get the other colors, but it seems the red one comes up more often.

Jagdohh_Fett,

Three boxes for me. One each of Frosted Flakes, Sugar Smacks, and Corn Pops = 2 red and 1 blue.  It seems like red outnumbers blue and green 10 to 1 based on the reports so far.

Ah, how random. I was thinking it had something to do with the type of cereal you get, but I guess there's got to be luck involved with finding the other two. Must eat more cereal now  :-\.

Nice display there Jeff, and for that price (free), you can't pass it up.  I actually like a lot of those food displays, and the big theatre displays that you see once in awhile, the problem is finding the place to put something like that.  You hate to have a nice big display like that, and just leave it packed up.  I've been getting a little more into some of the food promos this time around....I've been collecting 1 each of the individual character bags of M&Ms (there are 72 total, but character repeats in there, so 16 "different" characters I guess), we picked up some Frosted Flakes anyways (got a red saber spoon as well), have a box of Star Wars cereal (Vader cover), UPCs collected from Keebler to send in for a cookie jar, and I've been tempted by a few others.  I'm interested in the Burger King promo as well, if any more comes of that.  The problem is, eating all of this food :).

Well, I bought a couple more boxes of Frosted Flakes and guess what, two more freakin red saberspoons. I really want a green one  :(.

Ask and ye shall receive. I bought another box of Frosted Flakes tonight and lo and behold, I find a green saberspoon  ;D. Now just a blue one and I can stop eating the cereal.

I have three red saber spoons. I'm  sick of Kellogg's sugary cereal already too.

Looks like I'm SOL.
