    Aside from the sneak preview of the new Star Wars figures at local stores, the merchendising is getting into full swing. I was at my local Meijer store and found a box of Cheez-it with R2-D2 [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/artoo.gif[/img] on the front and a description of the movie on the back. Has anyone else started seeing and other food items yet?

    i did it for ya Thomas, next time just save it to your hard drive and then select "add attachment". That way we are not stealing bandwidth from another site.

    also added a subtitle so people know what is beginning [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]

    havent seen anything yet, but now Im gonna be looking. That being said, I&#39;d feel good eating some Cheeze-its out of a box with R2 on it.

    Last week I got some SW Skittles and Kudos bars.
    Skittles have the "hunt for grievous" thing but you can&#39;t look up the code til Apr 2&#33; LOL

    Kudos have some contest for a trip - tells you inside the box if you won...yea, ok.

    they are pushing this "celebrate the saga" theme - hehe

    I got my &#39;Anakin&#39;s Jedi Starfighter&#39;, wookie and General Grievous figures today from Argos (for anyone in the UK). The new figures are great... lots of detail and articulation (for those sad enough to be interested... like me).

    The Cheez will be with you... always.

    Seriously, sometimes this marketing thing goes a bit too far IMO.

    nah - that kind of stuff is harmless...people are always gonna buy those snacks anyhow.

    it&#39;s the repackaging of crap like the soundtracks and what not that are silly.

    I agree. That&#39;s even worse.
