The Batman marketing machine (finally) rolls into town

You remember a week or so back when I was talking up The Dark Knight before I had even seen it, and wondering where oh where the Batman food tie-ins were? I mean we all saw the Iron Man and Hulk fast food toys (wait, now that I think of it, where were the Hellboy toys? did anybody see any Hellboy toys?)

Still, I knew from the Bat Blog that there were some Batman food toys in the offing, only I never actually saw any. Well, today that changed. I managed to score a Batman figure from Cheerios. Previously I had managed to acquire a Joker figure, but I was afraid that I was never going to be able to get my hands on a Batman (Not that I’m such a big Batman fan, mind you, I just love those superhero food toys.)

So, you can see by this posting that I did (after searching virtually every store that carries cereal in town) to get my hands on what has to be the last box of Cheerios with a Batman figure in it. Cool, eh?

Not sure that I’m going to work so hard to track down the other two figures, though. I have one of each and that should work for now.

Just in case you don't know what chibi means, Bob (the term comes up more in regards to manga/anime), it refers to little/cute versions of characters.

And I am currently picking up the Poke toys at Burger King, but I bet you figured that one out already. :P

Thanks, Tommy. I was prepared to explain what chibi meant if need be. =)
