Stars Wars & Big G Cereals – May the force be with you!

I am a HUGE Star War fan. I have been in love with the movie franchise since I saw the very first episode when I was a young girl. I had such a huge crush on Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. 🙂 I wanted to be Princess Leia and race across the galaxies in search of adventure.

We have a cat named Anakin and another name Padmé. Some day I want to have a pet named Obi. LOL!

When I heard that they were re-releasing all six films on Blu-ray I nearly fell out of my chair. I can’t wait to get them to add to our own personal movie collection. I bet the movies look amazing on the blu-ray player. I also heard that there is 40 HOURS worth of bonus features too. I think when we finally get the boxed set we’ll watch the bonus features first and foremost. We watch all the Star Wars movies every time they are on TV (Spike TV has them on all the time). So it’s not like I haven’t seen the movies in a while. The bonus features really interest me.

The boxed set has 9 discs – NINE! WOW! Star Wars: The Complete Saga is courtesy of Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

In honor of the release of the Star Wars blu-ray boxed set, Big G cereals have created a limited edition good vs. evil images on select boxes of cereal including Honey Nut Cheerios, Lucky Charms (my guilty pleasure) and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. These specially marked boxes of cereal are found exclusively at Wal-mart.

We have the boxes. It was fun to put them together to see the picture that they made.

I don’t have much counter space so one of the boxes is sort of on the sink that is why it looks a little bit off. You can click on the photo for a larger view.

In honor of the Star Wars: The Complete Saga release I have a special giveaway for a lucky reader. The winner will receive…

– One box of Honey Nut Cheerios

– One box of Lucky Charms

– One box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch

– $25.0o Wal-mart gift card (you can use it toward the purchase of the Star Wars set!).

This giveaway is compliments of General Mills through My Blog Spark.

Good luck! And may the force be with you. 🙂

  65. I already have the cereal boxes tucked away for my Star Wars collection, but it can’t hurt to have a back-up set, and the $25 would come in handy. I haven’t bought the Blu-ray set yet. Yet. We don’t have a player, and I’m hoping Black Friday will bring an extraordinary deal my way.

    As for my favorite Star Wars movie, well, here they are in order:
    4, 5, 2, 3 & 6 (tie), 1.

    Favorite character is a little tougher, so I’ll break it down:
    Character I’d most like….
    to cuddle with: Han
    with me on Black Friday: Luke
    on road trips: R2-D2
    for girls night out: Leia & Padmé
    traveling to Europe or Japan: C-3PO

    This has been fun!

  66. My favorite character is Boba Fett!
