While doing some shopping yesterday I noticed a new Big "G" cereal promotion featuring Star Wars pens. They are the same size as the Episode I pens that were released around the time of the TPM 3D release. These appear to have been made to coincide with the now cancelled release of AOTC 3D as all but two of the characters (Vader and Chewbacca) are from AOTC. I will try and upload some pics later.

Great find, thanks for sharing! I went out to my WalMart to see if I could find any of these, and they did have Reese's Puffs and Golden Grahams boxes with the promotion. I ended up getting two Jango Fett pens. I'll check on some of my other stores soon.

What cereal brands did you find?

I only found Honey Nut Cheerios when I went. Here are those pics I promised. It's always nice to see Aurabesh on mass produced packaging! I'd wager we won't see any for ROTS. I would imagine that, like Hasbro's Black Series, these were already in the pipeline when AOTC 3D was cancelled.

Here are the boxes I've found.

18 oz. Reese's Puffs


16 oz. Golden Grahams


26.6 oz. Honey Nut Cheerios


Backing for Honey Nut Cheerios and Golden Grahams:


*The Reese's Puffs backing was different than the one above and the one Grendelspyce posted but I forgot to grab a picture...

I ended up with two Jango Fett pens and a Mace Windu.

The 3D releases were supposed to be happening now, with AOTC arriving September 20th and ROTS on October 11th. I am glad they went ahead and released these anyway. So far I have Darth Vader and Jango, once I get a Chewbacca I willl be content.

Haven't seen these in Los Angeles yet. Are these being found in grocery stores, or big box like Wal Mart/Target?

Thanks. Hope they make it out west. My local Ralphs(Kroger chain) still has Croods promos. Hopefully the pens will trickle down.

edit
Found Reeses, Trix and Coco Puffs at Target.

Got Chewy, Jango, Anakin.

My mom picked a Vader pen out for me and it's pretty nice!

Since most seem to be looking for Vader...I guess we can assume the Vader pen is the harder to find of the bunch?

It would seem Vader is the hardest. I do have a Vader to trade if anyone wants. All I need is Yoda.

I have spares of Yoda, Mace, and Jango for anyone still looking for these. Will send to someone for only the cost of shipping or will trade for another interesting food premium. PM me.
