A good friend of the site was kind enough to send over this vintage Star Wars in-store advertisement for Coca-Cola collectors cups which was found over at the Making Star Wars Tumblr.
I spent a good thirty minutes just gazing with longing at these cups before I even thought about finding a better image for the cups themselves. Luckily for us such an image was found over at The Bothan Spy site with a bit more information than can be found on the original advertisement.
From the Bothan Spy site:
“For the super-collectors out there, this series has four variations, for a grand total of 80 different cups. Each cup is marked on the back with various logos. All of the cups say “The Coca-Cola Company” on the back. They were designed to be a promotional giveaway with the purchase of a Frozen Coke or other frozen drink. Some feature additional store and brand logos. The following four logo combinations have been documented:
Coca-Cola / Koolee
Coca-Cola / Koolee / Li’l General
Coca-Cola / Koolee / Shop & Go”
Sadly in my youth I didn’t live near any of these stores listed so that is probably why this is the first I have seen of these particular cups. Looking these over…I would LOVE to have the Luke and Leia swinging across the Death Star chasm cup as well as Han and Chewie, the Jawas carrying R2, the Tusken Raider attack, and Luke in the Falcon’s gunnery chair…oh, who am I kidding? I want all of them!
