Star Wars Cereal Boxes Finally Give Greedo The Merch He Deserves
Star Wars collectors looking to round out their cereal box runs will have a few new somethings to shelve next to their Kellogg’s C-3PO’s this year. Count Dooku, Greedo, Jabba the Hutt and others will all see their likeness used on miniature one-serving containers, and the resulting titles are teeming with intergalactic hilarity.
Sixteen mini-boxes will be given away at Collectors Panels during Celebration V in Orlando from August 12-14, according to StarWars.com. The parodies of classic grocery store varieties include Hothsted Flakes, Raisin Han, Troop Loops and Vlix, which only the most hardcore of Star Wars fans and “Droids” cartoon series followers will likely understand.
Artists Jeff Correll, Mattias Rendahl, Grant Gould, Bill Cable, Chris Reiff, Jeff Carlisle, Scott D.M. Simmons, and Chris Trevas contributed imagery to these freebees, whose production runs will be capped at 400 boxes each. Count Dookula actually looks mighty tasty. If there’s a cereal manufacturer taking notes out there, there are plenty of lightsaber spoons out there ready to dig into this deliciousness if given the chance.
