Transformers Artifact of the Week: Malted Shreddies Cereal Box

In 1985 Nabisco ran a Transformers promotion with Shredded Wheat and Malted Shreddies cereals (could be others?). The boxes included one of six Scout Planes. As I don’t have any of the Scout Planes, I don’t know much about them. I imagine they were either cardboard or foam. They could be assembled in plane or robot modes. Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker, Dirge, Ramjet, and Thrust were available.

While I have not found the scout planes, I recently picked up a Malted Shreddies cereal box on eBay with the promotion on the box. When I bought it, I assumed it was just a flattened out box, but it has actually never been glued. Now if I could only find the Scout Planes…

As always, you can find over 14,000 Transformers merchandise items and collectibles at TFMuseum.com.

Thanks for reading!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
