    Yeah! I just got all 5 of the cereal pen lightsabers! They're soooo cooool!!!!

    The five pen lightsabers are: Anakin's, Mace's, Dooku's, Vader's and Luke's.

    They come in Honey Nut Cheerios and Reese's Puffs and Cinammon Toast Crunch.

    Dont forget Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I got all of them for free! Sometimes it pays to work at a grocery store.

    I have already bought two boxes of cereal, and with my luck, I got Darth Vader's saber both times! I really wanted Anakin's or Dooku's. Mace's is cool too. However, I took one to school and used it the other day and my friends liked it. It's fun to use, though they really don't write very well at all.

    Who cares if you can write with them, it's just so cool because, well, it's something I hadn't seen before, for one thing, and because you can get them for "free" also.

    Now I only have to finish the six boxes of cereal I bought to have the stupid 5 pens...

    So far I only have Darth's and Luke's. Those are the ones I really wanted but am hoping to get the other 3. Another food tie in that I like are the Jedi Fruit Roll Magic Motion Cards, gotta love em. Also, has anyone seen the Fruit Roll Ups? I saw a small picture and all I could read was "FREE" but I don't know what you get. Does anyone know what I am talking about?

    Obi Wan Kanolli, I live in the Bay Area, and found the cereal in Target stores near San Jose.

    The cereal boxes have expiration dates that range from November to February 2003, so I take it these cereals will be around for a while.

    Usually cereal will ship to a store on a modular pallet. Once the store gets in a few pallets for display and they sell out they are gone. But keep a look out. You minght find a few on the shelf in a few weeks.

    Boba Jr, you're sure lucky that you have all 5 sabers. I boughts 4 boxes of Cinamon Toast Crunch and ended up getting 2 of each of Mace and Dooku. :( I got my cereal from Target...the other grocery stores don't have any. Anyway, Boba Jr, did you buy the same brand of cereal or different ones to get all of the sabers?

    lija, I bought boxes of Reeses and Honey Nut Cheerios. I must confess, I did cheat a little, but it was the only way to get all 5 sabers all at once.

    Boba Jr, thx for the reply. The reason that I'm asking is that I'm wondering if certain kinds of cereal only have certain types of sabers. Thx for clearing it up...it gives me hope that I'll be able to complete my collection buying only the kinds of cereal I prefer. :)

    Just curious, how did you "cheat" a little bit? You open the box and look?
