Tweet Around 1980 Nabisco offered these posters as in-pack premiums in their Weeties and Crispies cereals. A great selection of Marvel characters were featured, courtesy of Newton Comics, Marvel’s Australian licensee through much of the 1970’s.
Tweet These four masks appeared on the back panels of Australian Kellogg’s Cornflakes 750g cereal boxes in 1980 to promote The Empire Strikes Back. The smaller 500g boxes featured make of Luke Skywalker, C3PO, Bossk and Boba Fett.
Tweet Thanks to Toltoys Kid reader “robspromos” I’m delighted to present the complete set of shrinkie premiums from the 1979 Nabisco Weeties Australia cereal tie-in. A small set of five that were issued in these boxes, and very tough to find. A bit of a strange mix of characters and ships, but kids weren’t complaining […]
Tweet This is actually the third time I have blogged about this particular promotion, the first time I was speculating as to whether it had ever actually gone ahead, the second time I was delighted to confirm it had by producing a cut back and side panel from the box, and now finaly I have […]
Tweet In the wake of Star Wars came a slew of wannabe space epics, but Disney did quite a respectable job with it’s 1979 production of “The Black Hole” . The robots had jerky actions and the actors were robotic, and let’s not mention the tinny sound and special effects, but as a nine year […]
Tweet If you’re a fan of the classic Universal Monsters (and who isn’t?) you’ll enjoy seeing this licensed tie-in with Nabisco Australia’s Weeties brand of cereal from 1982. The “Doublies” refers to the fact that instead of printing one sticker with a plain backing piece, doublies use the backing piece as a swap card featuring […]
Tweet I blogged way back in June 2007 about the TV spot for the Kelloggs ROTJ Decoder Disc competition, and I’m delighted to present the full set of Decoder Discs below, still sealed in their cellophane baggies… Thanks again to the Naylor Collection for the pic.
Tweet Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Playmobil Promotion I found an interesting photo showing a 1977 box of Kellogg’s Australia Corn Flakes, with a Kenbrite Pocket People (Playmobil) mail-in offer. It appears that you could send in the coupon (and 50c) to receive a Playmobil figure. Does anyone have an example of this box? I know there […]
Tweet Indy Coco-Pops Premiums A few weeks ago I featured the Indiana Jones Coco Pops box from the Temple of Doom tie-in. Inside each box was a card premium which broke apart to reveal two picture cards from the movie, one photo and one sketch jigsaw piece. The same design was used for the Kellogs […]
Tweet Just like a chocolate milkshake only Indy! In 1984 Kelloggs thought they were on to a sure-fire winner with their Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom cereal tie-in. Unfortunately there was an outcry from parents and family groups over the horror and occult themes featured in the film. Squeaky clean Kelloggs was of course already […]
