Episode I Toy Premiums from French Quick Restaurants

Pete Vilmur | February 3, 2012

Fans from France, Belgium and Luxemburg may have recently discovered a cool Episode I 3D-themed promotion overtaking their local Quick restaurant – a promotion which earned a lot of buzz last month with a sneak peek of a black-bunned “Dark Vador Burger” (which doesn’t yet appear on the chain’s French site – it will be offered exclusively in France between March 2 – 5).

In addition to the Dark Burger and Jedi Burger currently available between January 31 and March 1 in France (or to March 5 in Belgium and Luxemburg), there are several Episode I 3D toys being offered in Quick “Magic Boxes”, the equivalent of a Happy Meal box in the U.S. While the Magic Box toys are usually reserved for younger children, older fans – ages 9-14 – are eligible to receive some cool menu top box items, such as light-up lightsaber key chains, glow-in-the-dark bracelets, buttons, and iron-ons.

Check out the Magic Box prizes below, with the menu top box premiums for older kids shown at the bottom (and if you’re feeling adventurous and don’t mind doing a little navigating around a French-language site, you can find the promotion’s TV spot as well as pdf downloads of the Dark Burger and Jedi Burger posters!):
