It's time to get set for the 2011 7-11 cup promotions!!

I spotted today (Saturday, March 26th) evidence of a new one coming, so I thought it was time to get started with a 2011 thread. Below, as I've done with prior years, I will post new links to the cups as they start. I have started with Thor, which I can personally guarantee is coming down the pipe. As of this writing, you can't find anything online about the Thor promo, but I know it's coming. As always, the first link is to the Slurpee site, but I have also added links to prior threads posted here on Card Talk. Happy hunting!.....Geoff

SLURPEE HOME PAGE

2010 Card Talk 7-11 thread
2009 Card Talk 7-11 thread

THOR (April)

The 7-11 Thor Promo should be in full swing starting April 1st. The promotion consists of 4 lenticular Slurpee cups (Thor, Sif, Loki, and Destroyer) and 4 super-shiny Big Gulp cups. You can also buy a set of four figurine straws. Natalie Portman fans, sorry....she doesn't appear to be on on any of the cups.

See the cups: click on THIS link to go to a Comic Book site that features images of the cups. Also, the Slurpee home page now features Thor as its main topic.

Dr. Pepper promo also: as a side note, the same Comic Book site above also features a link to another article about an upcoming Dr. Pepper promo for Thor. See the Dr. Pepper article HERE. Also, visit the Dr. Pepper site - the home page has been updated with the promotion.

From the Slurpee site: this promotion will eventually go away. I did a screen cap of the Slurpee home page ad this morning (Mon April 4th), and you can see it here permanently: http://i74.photobucket.com/alb.../geoffpam25/thor.jpg

THE HANGOVER PART II (May)

Unfortunately, there appears to be no major film promotion in the month of May for slurpee cups, but the Hangover Part II film is being featured on 7-11’s Big Gulp cups. The cups feature 5 designs and are standard quality – the hard plastic with the images on a non-glossy surface, similar to the quality of the X-Men Last Stand slurpee cups featured a few years ago. Here are some links for the cups:

SUPER 8 (June)

If you are a J.J. Abrams fan, this odd 7-11 promotion might be just for you!!! For the second time in a row, 7-11 is featuring a non-Slurpee, Big Gulp only promo. This time it's the new monster movie from the LOST creator, called “Super 8”, due out next Friday (June 10th). 7-11 is featuring only one design of a smaller Big Gulp cup advertising the film. I picked one up yesterday. Sorry, pics or links online are hard to find at the moment.

Here is a link to a tiny picture of the cup: http://www.cspnet.com/Media/Pu...Article/big_gulp.jpg

Here is a link to a page within the 7-11 site just about the promotion: http://www.7-eleven.com/Only-a...8-Deals/Default.aspx

COWBOYS & ALIENS (July)

Starting today, July 1st, is a full-blown promotion for the new film with Harrison Ford & Daniel Craig. The promotion includes a special cup for $6.99 that features the robotics that wraps around Dabniel Craig's wrist, and a series of 3 lenticular slurpee cups and 3 flat-image Big Gulp cups.

Here is a link to Slurpee site's sub-page for lenticular Slurpee cups & specialty cup:

And this is the sub-page on the 7-11 main site that also includes images of the Big Gulp cups:
http://www.7-eleven.com/Only-a...-Aliens/Default.aspx

WRESTLEMANIA® XXVIII (August)

Starting August 1st is a WWE promotion for Wrestlemania XXVIII and the video game “WWE All Stars”.

I don’t normally add the WWE to these annual threads, but these cups – I think - are a LOT nicer than ones in years past where they were motion cups (not as good as the motionless 3D ones) or just non-lenticular Big Gulp cups. There are four lenticular/3D Slurpee cups and four glossy Big Gulp cups. The Slurpee cups feature Stone Cold, The Rock, John Cena, and The Miz. The Big Gulp cups feature Roddy Piper, Randy Orton, Shawn Michaels, and Rey Mysterio. The promo also includes collectible straws with figurines attached (similar to ones used for Thor, Iron Man, Terminator Salvation, etc...).

This link takes you to the Slurpee Newsroom where you can read the official Press Release about the promo. The release is dated “08.01.11” on the left. http://www.slurpee.com/News.aspx

This link features an article from about.com plus an image of all four cups. http://prowrestling.about.com/...n-for-summerslam.htm

As always, I'll pick-up sets of all the lenticular cups offered this summer. This forum thread was great for keeping me in the loop last year. Keep it coming geoff! Smile

Please let us know when you see the cups! I went to a 7-11 yesterday to check out the Slurpee cups but I did not see those THOR straws. Have to go back!

Hey guys. Regarding the Thor cups....they've been out for almost a week, here in Rhode Island.
I noticed them last Wednesday or so. I also saw those big topper things that go above the cups
and the straws.
There's a BIG Thor LENTICULAR cup that's pretty cool. I was thinking about buying it, but if it can't lay flat, I can't buy it {running out of storage space & the Mrs. will kill me. LOL}
I purchase other lenticular things {see my other posts regarding misc. cereal and puzzle lenticulars}.
Qa'Pla,
Fred

It looks like there's lenticular cups and non lenticular cups ?
I didn't see these, last week, at our 7-11. Hmmmmm. I'll have
to go back. Not that I'll buy them, but I will check them out, that's for sure.
Last cups I bought was for the 2009 Star Trek movie and Transformers 1.

Nice pic !

Uh.....Star Trek? There were no Slurpee cups, or any other 7-11 promo, associated with the 2009 Star Trek movie if I recall. Could you clarify? Do you have a picture you can share?

I should have clarified my statement regarding the Star Trek cups/glasses. They were from Burger King NOT 7-11. I was just talking CUPS in general. Sorry for the confusion. My bad.

Are the Hangover 2 cups Lenticular, or just plastic?

Any word on Captain America or Green Lantern or X-Men cups?

After not liking The Hangover I don't think I'll see part 2 or look for those cups.

I haven't heard of or seen any Capt. America or Green Lantern promos yet.
Heck, I still haven't seen those Reece's PB cup / Green Lantern wrappers, yet. Shake Head

Typically, if a Slurpee promo is around the corner and the products show up early at a 7-11, they don't show up until - at the earliest - the last weekend of the prior month. That means if another cup promo is a-comin', I wouldn’t bother checking until this coming Memorial Day weekend. That’s just based on my experience here in Utah….it may be different in other USA regions, but I doubt it
