Hey guys, a week or so ago I saw a commercial advertising General Mills cereal with free LEGO Racers in them. I knew I had to get some of that cereal!
Five types of General Mills cereals have it:
- Cinnamon Toast Crunch
- Cookie Crisp
- Lucky Charms
Although the pieces were made in China, they still feel like high-quality plastic.
I think that this is a promotion only in the US, sorry Europe and other continents.
Ok, on to the pictures!
I decided to put clickable pictures, since this is my first topic
Here's the box, with the advertisement.
Here's a close-up of the ad.
Here's a close-up of the "Driver Stats".
Close-up of the racers...
You can see that the racer is at the bottom of the cereal I had to get my mom to help me push it out without killing the cereal
Here's the car, wrapped up with all the plastic baggy goodness
Here's the car compared to a minifig. You can see that I got the blue one.
At this point, I stopped to do my homework, and opened the wrap after I finished as a reward
Yay! Cinnamon Toast Crunch!
I think the last time I ate it was like 3 years or so
Yup, it sure is enlarged to show detail
Here's the sticker sheet. I refuse to call a DSS because LEGO would never put printed parts on a free LEGO set...
The back of the sticker sheet; it tells you where to apply the stickers.
Here's the car without stickers. At this point, I had to get another bowl of cereal
Here's the bottom of the car. The set number can't be 7190, since that's one of the Millenium Falcon's numbers.
The whole car is two pieces. If you have all six, you can make over 200 combinations (according to the box)!
The top can fit on backwards
The "build time" was around 5 minutes if you work carefully. Those stickers are hard to put on!
The two sides after stickered.
Front after stickered.
Used up SS.
The pilot is doing a move in The Matrix
The pilot's getting ready for the annual go-kart race
And here's a picture of the top part backwards again.
When I was eating dinner a few hours ago, I dropped the car by accident. I then found out that there are three parts to the car, not two! There third part is a 2 x 7 chassis.
Here's a picture:
And a picture of a "hot rod" :
A week or so ago, I got a box of Trix with the banner on it:
This time, the car is on top of the bag instead of inside the bag.
Yay! Rainbow cereal!
Close-up of the bagged car. You can see that I got the police car (yay! ).
One bag taken off...
Close-up on the back of the sticker sheet. This car has a grey chassis.
And the front...
Back views (unstickered)
Here's the fully stickered set. You can see that I messed up the one on the windshield, so I had to put some glue on it...
The racer uses some of the same stickers as the police car in 8152 Speed Chasing:
It also looks similar to it. I bet that it was based on that police car.
Top pieces, Side view
Backwards police car
Backwards top pieces
What did I think about these sets? They're great! :)
After all, who doesn't like free LEGO? Probably anti-LEGO people.
My mom got the cereal on sale for $2.50 instead of $3.50. It's like paying $2.50 for the set!
These are probably also new molds!
I'm probably going to get more cereal! I
Thanks for reading my first topic!
Feel free to click any of the pictures to post comments on that certain picture (if you have a Flickr account).
