There's big news in the land of breakfast, guys! Specially marked boxes of Big G (that's General Mills) cereals have these really cool collectible Star Wars pens inside! You can even make fun little recreations of your favorite scenes from the Star Wars episodes using the pens and share them on the Cereal Wars Tumblr page for a chance to be featured on the Cereal Wars website!
You can find these specially marked boxes of General Mills cereal containing the collectible Star Wars pens at grocery stores and mass retailers nationwide. I found a huge assortment at my local Target store (and they were even on sale and I had a coupon, so be on the lookout for extra savings too!). These specially marked boxes of Big G cereal will only be in stores while supplies last, or until the end of December 2013, so get them now before they're all gone!
The participating cereals containing the collectible Star Wars pens include: Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Reese’s Puffs, Golden Grahams, Cocoa Puffs, Trix and Lucky Charms.

I visited the Cereal Wars Tumblr page for a little inspiration for creating my own Cereal Wars episode using the collectible Star Wars pens. I found a Darth Vader, Chewbacca and Anakin Skywalker pen in my boxes!
Angeline tried to sneak away with the Darth Vader but I held her off by promising to let her have it after I made my cereal wars video!
She may have also been bribed with a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch for an after school snack...
Here's my attempt at an edible episode, what do you think?
I'm not a big Star Wars fan so these are not f or me (in fact I know nothing about Star Wars, I keep forgetting which was Star Wars and which Star Trek, LOL). However, I like the cereal wars.
We have some friends who would love these! They are huge Star Wars fans! I will have to let them know!
Cereal wars - that sounds like an idea that will have children running to the breakfast table!
Oh my, lol! This is great! I actually found a Chewbacca pen in my son's jacket.. and had no idea it came from the cereal box. Funny!
This is fantastic! As funny as it sounds my husband would love these!
These are SO cool! I will be on the lookout for these, my son will love them.
This is the best cereal box prize ever!
HAHA Your vine is too cute. I just want a light saber pen so I can spend hours goofing around with it!
Your Vine video is awesome! And so are those pens. I totally want a Chewbacca one. Guess I will need to pick up some Cinnamon Toast Crunch & cross my fingers.
Love the video! These Star Wars pens would be perfect for one of my family members - he loves the movies!
You're cracking me up with that video. That is just too cute! I want to start collecting the pens now.
That edible episode is hilarious. I don't even remember the last time I got a prize in my cereal...but those lucky charms sure are calling my name.
oh, my son will be SO excited to see these!

I remember those pens being in cereal when I was little. I can't believe that they are FINALLY putting prizes back into cereal! 🙂 yay!
Love your Vine video. Two things my family loves General Mills Cereals and Star Wars. I will have to check this out. You can usually get good deals on GM cereals.
Haha oh my gosh, my DAD would love these pens. I want to buy these cereals purely in hopes of finding him a Yoda pen 😉
Great for kids!! I use to love opening up a new box of cereal to get the toy ... in fact, my choice of cereal was often driven by what toy they were offering lol
OMG!! I need them all!!
Oh look at those way cool pens. I know a lot of people who will love them.
Wow, this is so cool! I want all the pens!
I know my kids and hubby would love those collectible pens.
How awesome are these! I'm sad they aren't available in Chex since that's the only cereal we can eat due to being gluten free.
