    I thought I saw an article some time ago about Burger King having toys again for the new film but have heard nothing since with the film a couple days away. So did this promotion just die out?

    Or they're waiting for the movie to actually be released so the average schmo might give a shit instead of just collectors...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I also seem to remember that promotion happening at Burger Kings that aren't in the States. I assume if we were getting them they'd be starting soon due to the release of the movie, but I was under the impression it was in Singapore or something.

    Singapore is doing something Whopper related, but I don't remember anything about a kids meal promo.

    Like Kibble said, I don't think we're getting one anytime before the actual movie hits theaters. If I'm not mistaken it's the same deal as with DOTM.

    Ok, I thought normally we at least had a leak or announcement of the toys by now. I just figured that the promotion would start at least the same week of the film.

    They usually start promotions before the movies come out.

    dotm kids meal toys were released about week before the movie came out.

    the promotion started on june 20th, the movie had it's wide US release on the 29th.

    yeah, that's what i was thinking.

    it wouldn't just be collectors who would know.. i'm sure they'd run commercials, and they'd most definitely have a big sign on the burger king menu so that kids could see it.

    it doesn't really make that much sense to start a promotion for a movie after it's been released. these types of things are supposed to be part of the big push right before the movies release.

    That's what I thought - usually you AT LEAST start seeing ads for it by now but presently we have nothing. Unlike McDonalds with Burger King I can't even find their current promotion listed anywhere on their web page so I'm wondering if it's safe to say that this will be the first film that is kids meal toyless.

    BK does have a Kids Meal, but no toys that come with it.
