My friend gave me a pack, the box said general mills, and to enter a code in the collection vault...
Can anyone tell me where it's from specifically and how they are sorted?

EDIT: This is the official skystones topic.

According to Google, General Mills "Big G" cereals will have them inside specially marked boxes starting in March. Either your friend (or a relative of theirs) works for General Mills in some capacity and got them in advance of this promotion or they managed to find a store that's stocking the promo boxes earlier than General Mills stated they were supposed to be available. In either case, congrats!

Looks like it was scheduled to start in February...

I noticed last night in the Collection Vault official app that a Skystones icon has been added to the upper left corner of the main screen (and they changed the opening graphic to reflect TT characters... about damn time). When you click on it, it tell you that General Mills cereals contain the Skystones, and you can put in codes for them in the app.

It is unclear whether you can actually play the game, online or off, or with single or multiple people. Maybe the guy who started the topic could test it out for us?

Apparently Activision didn't tell General Mills this (or something changed), as my link (below) says it was supposed to start next month. Oh well, time to get looking!

They're actually pretty decent. I found two boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch (yay, they're in a cereal I'll actually eat!) and snagged them...

Also worth noting, a coupon for $10 off a Trap Team Starter set and a coupon for $1 off a Trap Team figure ("Only applies to single figures and not a trap")

Found some more CTC with them inside. Only bought one box - hoping to find them in another cereal so I don't get burned out on CTC.

Got the Snap Shot box. 3/4 ain't bad. :D

I found it on a box of Cookie Crisp. I couldn't remember the last time I had them, and now I know why. Cookie Crisp is terrible! Hopefully I find other cereals soon, beause I am not buying another box of Cookie Crisp. I like everything else it comes in.

I live in upstate NY by the way.

So tempting! I've not really ate these cereals in over 20 years as it is way too much sugar for me. It's plain old oatmeal or generic brand bran or corn flakes please and I've a strange allergy to something in Cheerios...but I so would like all these cards! I'll probably end up giving the birds outside the cereals. LOL

I think I'll get 4 boxes of different types and ebay off the spares and buy the ones I need. Must do it fast before scalping raises the prices too high. I'm such a hoarder, I still have Pokemon themed cereal boxes (rice crispies) that has to be some 15 years old now. These will go nicely with them.

#26 Posted: 15:48:25 09/02/2015
I found a few boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios with them, but passed as I would rather wait for a good sale. We have been stocked up on cereal, lately, so I really don't want to buy cereal just for these, but if there's a good enough deal, I might. What's the expiration on the coupons? The $1 figure would make the deal sweeter, but I'm not sure when I'll be buying a figure. We've decided to start our son on an allowance so he can save up for Skylanders, but I know he's also saving up for elemental packs (which we hope we can find once he does). I'm wondering if they would work on them. Theoretically, they would probably work with any Skylanders Activision toys (including traps), even if they weren't meant for them, but there's a difference between technically and ethically. Does it say just a single figure?

#29 Posted: 23:02:05 09/02/2015
I have seen the promo on all of the boxes mentioned. I bought four boxes and got unlucky. I have 3 Krypt King sets and a Wallop set. Each set has two shiny cards that are also the best two Skystones in that set. The Krypt King set has Chompy Mage and Dr. Krankcase, while the Wallop set has Gulper and Chef Pepper Jack.

With regards to the coupons, they each have expiration dates of 1/31/2016. The $1 off figure coupon has an asterisk. Here is what the asterisk reads: ONLY APPLIES TO SINGLE TOYS AND NOT A TRAP.

The Skystones are actually quite well done, especially considering the fact that they come free in a cereal box.
DarthW Yellow Sparx Gems: 1951
#30 Posted: 19:26:51 10/02/2015
WinCo in Salem, Oregon only had the Trix boxes last night. None of the other participating varieties were the Skystones boxes yet.

I bought two and scored the Snapshot (Dreamcatcher & Wolfgang) and Wallop (Gulper & Pepperjack) sets.

These sets are really nice, especially for being a cereal box toy. They are a durable plastic credit card type of material. Sadly, the directions are on a flimsy paper card, but the game is so simple that there's no way Skylanders players should need them.

I foresee more boxes of sugary cereal in our near future. My kids will love this because we cook hot breakfasts in our house, so we typically buy boxed cereal only once or twice each year.

Kroger is supposed to have select General Mills cereals on sale. Every region is different for prices and when your ad starts. Mine starts 2/11 and the price is $2.29 and part of the buy 6 get $3 off promotion, making them $1.79. You don't have to buy 6 boxes. You can mix and match with other items in the promo.
griswoldthunder Gold Sparx Gems: 2953
#32 Posted: 00:55:59 12/02/2015
Picked up 4 more boxes using the $1.79 Kroger deal, but still no Snap Shot. Including the 4 I had picked up previously, 3 Wallops, 3 Krypt Kings, and 2 Wildfire. By the way, the Wildfire set has Kaos and the Golden Queen as the two special, shiny "boss" cards.

After putting the 3 sets together, there is some overlap in the sets. Of the 30 Skystones, I have 6 doubles. I am guessing that after finding the fourth set, that number could grow to as many as 12 doubles. That would make for a grand total of 28 different Skystones.

The cards are really well made for a cereal promo item. Does anybody have them all yet, or a list of all of them? We have 28 so far, and it seems they're random even according to the 4 box art types (Krypt King, Wallop, Wild Fire, Snap Shot).

The box says they're 40 cards in all...I was thinking that they were 40 DIFFERENT cards, but it doesn't specify; I kinda hope they are different but kinda hope they are not, because if they are counting doubles, as another post on another forum on ds showed, then we have them all. Wish Activision or General Mills would have a definitive list on them.

Found ours on a Reese's Puff regular sized box, Honey Nut Cheerios Regular sized box, and Honey Nut Cheerios Family sized box.

Also the SkyStones are OUTSIDE of the actual cereal bag, which means you can still keep the cereal fresh and ready for when you're actually ready to eat it.

Well, as the others said, it is mad from very thin plastic, they are pretty decent, and fun. i didn't get any yet except the krypt king box from my friend. I hope to find them soon, so i can get my hands on the back of the box. anyway, does anyone know if the codes are different?
EDIT: i plan on getting the 3ds starter pack soon, i didn't get it for christmas or my birthday because warehouses are probably constipated with it. When does the coupon expire?

I just got a couple of boxes as we needed Cereal in my Family's House anyway and this was even more of an incentive to get a couple of boxes, anyway without a further ado:

Wallop Box (came from a Trix Regular-sized box)

Wildfire Box (came from a Cinnamon Toast Crunch Family-sized box)

Also, I can't find the codes on the cards, are you supposed to maybe scan the cards with your Phone's Camera?

The coupons expire on 1/31/16 and I plan on using one of the Trap Team Starter Pack coupons on the 3DS version and both Trap Team figure coupons (don't know what to do with the OTHER Trap Team Starter Pack coupon as I already own the Wii version as it is, so I don't need another Console version smilie)

Yeah, the $10 off coupons have a pretty sweet life on them. If you tend to buy extra starters later in the lifespan for whatever reason, they're definitely worth hanging on to. Should be able to find them sub $30 before the coupons expire.

I still see the Dark Starter for the Wii on a rare occasion. Hoping I can somehow manage a sweet deal on one of those and stack it with this coupon.
